Smythson Taps Quentin Jones Holiday Film

JONES OF ALL TRADES: Smythson has enlisted the British illustrator, model and filmmaker Quentin Jones to produce and star in a holiday film for the luxury accessories company.

Featuring a stop-motion animation technique, “Wonderland” is a short film that sees Jones as a French harlequin clown and features Smythson’s fall 2015 collection. Jones incorporated bold colors, graphic designs, and her own handcrafted paper masks and colorful collages into the whimsical production.

“I chose the key pieces for the season and thought about how to make them move in a dynamic way,” Jones said. “It is really fun thinking about how to bring inanimate objects to life.”

Jones is the brand ambassador and face of the Smythson fall 2015 campaign. She has created films for brands including Chanel, Victoria Beckham, Holly Fulton and Tibi. Her illustrations have been used by Marc by Marc Jacobs and Opening Ceremony.

The holiday campaign video will be posted on the brand’s Web site.
