Kith’s short film with Adrien Brody set in Puglia, Italy

As was the case with Fall/Winter 2021, Kith has again chosen Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody as its testimonial to launch the new Summer 2023 collection.

This time, however, in addition to a series of wonderful shots, the brand founded by Ronnie Fieg made a short film, titled “Solo noi (Just us)”, 2:25 entirely set in Italy, specifically in Puglia.

The short film shows us an Adrien Brody speeding through the Apulian countryside in a late 1960s white Alfa Romeo Spider 1600. We then see him park in front of a beautiful villa, pull grocery bags out of the back seats, and enter the house.

Once inside, we find Brody busy cooking a plate of spaghetti al pomodoro while studying Italian, evidently for a fictitious role of his own in which he is supposedly to play an Italian or Italian-American character.
The study then continues in the swimming pool where, the protagonist of The Pianist, rehearses and rehearses his lines in Italian while also getting angry at himself for less than perfect pronunciation.

The context and imagery in which the short is set is one that has now become a classic, perhaps somewhat overused, of the so-called “vita lenta”, while the soundtrack accompanying the video is a forgotten masterpiece of 1960s Italian music, “Non t’aspettavo più” by Robertino.

The first drop of Kith’s Summer 2023 collection will be released on Friday, May 19 in physical stores, online and on the Kith app.
