Pippin and the Pursuits of Life
The short features the playful Spring/Summer 2015 collection of Dutch designer Maaike Fransen and takes the collection's ethos as its starting point. With a whimsical soundtrack by Ravian de Vries, enchanting sets and hair and make-up by Sacha Kambong and Sofia Commandeur, Huurdeman’s colourful film builds a world around the quirky garments.
