Date Set For James Franco’s Fashion Directorial Debut

Jessica Rubin

Besides being a Yale Ph.D. student, a talented actor, having his butt plastered on the cover of Flaunt magazine and being an all-around cutie, James Franco appears to have had time to direct a series of films for Seven For All Mankind’s new YouTube channel.

These vintage-inspired videos center around model Lily Donaldson and follow a narrative that focuses on the creative aspect of the brand without succumbing to out-right advertising. David Lipman, the chairman and chief creative officer of Lipman — the agency in charge of the campaign — describes the thought process behind the vignettes to WWD: “Seven is embedded in the concept of the film. It’s not a billboard for Seven — rather the cast is living the life of Seven.”

We hear that you can expect dark moments, a vampire and some twisted developments. And of course, Franco will have a little cameo, so there’s always that to look forward to. So kids, keep your eyes peeled ’cause starting February 15th these videos will be yours for the taking (or watching).
