I travel for the Romance

Eye Candy: You Are HERE

by Pavia Rosati

Agyness Deyn ponders the bright vastness of it all at the Phoenician Resort in Arizona.

Today I went to a hotel and saw a movie about three other hotels. It was more fun than it sounds.

It was the premiere of HERE, a short film directed by I Am Love's Luca Guadagnino, produced by actor/designer Waris Ahluwalia, conceived with Tilda Swinton, costumed by Heidi Bivens, and starring Agyness Deyn. It's an atmospheric love story in which a ridiculously well dressed girl follows clues scattered for her around nice hotels by a mysterious paramour.

The film was made for The Luxury Collection, a division of Starwood Hotels, and was shot in nine days at Equinox in snowy Vermont (starring amenity: a well trained falcon), The Phoenician in parched Arizona (starring amenity: a shimmery pool), and The Royal Hawaiian in lush Oahu (starring amenity: the horizon). 

To hear the charming Waris tell it, the Luxury Collection was hands-off, and the "job" involved a group of friends who love to travel working very fast in renegade style and having a great time. Who wouldn't want to spend fifteen minutes immersed in that? The movie is languid travel porn and fashion porn. It's your eye candy for the day.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE
