This week I went to a special preview of the new collections coming to OPI next year, trust me you are going to want every shade, but the highlight of the presentation had to be the screening of their first-ever short film, Instinct of Colour.
Regulars readers to Fashionista Barbie will know I love a good fashion film, well beauty brands seem to be showing fashion brands how it Is done lately, first we had dancing Chanel-clad fingers and now thanks to OPI we have a dance off between a manicured horse and four talented dancers.
Created by the award-winning film director Han Emanuel, the short film features four colourful OPI shades, ‘Pink-ing of You’, ‘Red My Fortune Cookie’, ‘Need Sunglasses?’ and ‘No Room for the Blues’, which are represented by a different style of dance – tap, ballet, modern and street, and each dances off against the real star of the film, Lady in Black, a dancing thoroughbred horse. It is truly mesmerizing to watch.
As well as loving the creative concept, seriously wow, I love the blues-electronic tune, ‘Down the Road’ by French DJs C2C, I need that on my iPod.
I wonder how OPI are going to top this – a dancing manicured horse was a great first film!
