January’s Best Fashion Videos: Pedro Almodóvar for Missoni, Barnaby Roper Films Anna Jagodzinska, and More

Easily one of foremost talents in fashion’s moving image, director Barnaby Roper filmed two shorts this month. The first stars model Anna Jagodzinska styled exclusively in Rodarte and Swarovski, while the second was a frenetic piece for Karl by Karl Lagerfeld. Meanwhile, celebrated filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar appears in a Marco Maccapani-directed video alongside two of his muses, Rossy de Palma and Bianca Suárez. Italian model and socialite Elisa Sednaoui also tried her hand at film, directing an introspective mediation on friendship, which calls to mind Erick Zonca’s The Dreamlife of Angels. See these videos, and one short influenced by Luca Guadagnino’s I Am Love, in the slideshow ahead.
