Wes Anderson brings colour to H&M

The director casts actor Adrien Brody in a distinctively quirky film for the brand's holiday campaign.

It’s those colours, the bright blue, olive green, carrot orange and raspberry pink hues that help us name the director (when, embarrassingly,┬áthe only other one we can name offhand is Spielberg) behind short films like the one below. Wes Anderson has a visual and narrative style like no other, which is probably why H&M chose him for its holiday campaign piece.

The brand and director recently decided to “Come Together” to create a colourful little number and wish the world a happy holiday, taking viewers through the scene on a train that’s delayed and unable to get its passengers to their Christmas destination on time. Adrien Brody takes the lead role in a familiar, true and distinctly cult way.
