Ultra-cool New York-based brand Opening Ceremony are already au fait with blending the worlds of fashion and film (the brand designed capsule collections for both of Spike Jonze's movies Where The Wild Things Are and Her) and celebrating the theatrical nature of the catwalk (think of Ferraris driving onto the runway at their incredible Spring Summer 2014 show). Now the daring designers are taking the concept of the fashion show onto an even higher plain.
This coming New York Fashion Week, director Spike Jonze and actor Jonah Hill are teaming up with the brand, co-writing a one act play that will be staged in the space of their Spring Summer 2015 show. How amazing! Despite owning some impeccable acting abilities, Hill will not be appearing in the play alongside the host of actors and models that are already being enlisted - it's his writing skills that are coming into the spotlight (having already written both 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street).

The story line is still being finalised, Humberto Leon (the cofounder of the store) told WWD, but the original script was all Jonze's idea (as was bringing on Jonah Hill). We're expecting some of Jonah's wonderous witticisms, Spike's tender human touch and of course, some impossibly cool clothing - this cult-chic combo will definitely have the FROWS of Manhattan abuzz. And we'll be there to report...
