Kenzo creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have tapped Carrie Brownstein, the actress, author and musician who co-created “Portlandia” with Fred Armisen, also costars on “Transparent,” and is a member of the band Sleater-Kinney, to direct a short film for the brand.

Titled “The Realest Real,” the film is a comedy about connection in the age of technology and features Natasha Lyonne, Mahershala Ali, Laura Harrier, Rowan Blanchard and Kim Gordon. It will premiere in September during New York Fashion Week and will also be a part of the Kenzo fall campaign, which breaks in July. Kenzo has done similar projects in the past, last year working with Gregg Araki on a short that screened at the Cinema Paradiso festival in Paris.
