"Will Nature Make A Man Of Me Yet"
Hotel MonologuesProduced by Sadie Frost and Jemima French
Directed by Ben Charles Edwards
Renowned fashion, film and music personalities including actress Francis Ruffelle (in the film) and daughter, singer Eliza Doolittle, fashion designer Matthew Williamson and Kimberly Wyatt’s model husband Max Rogers, were amongst guests who turned out at the Bulgari Hotel Cinema, Knightsbridge, for an exclusive screening of the new FrostFrench film, ‘Will Nature Make a Man out of Me Yet?’, to celebrate the renaissance of the award-winning fashion label, FrostFrench. After a five-year break, Sadie Frost and Jemima French edited a 10-piece collection of their favorite wears, which are portrayed throughout the short film. With an assertive yet playful attitude, the film evokes a power of female dominance, played out in the protagonists and reflected in the clothes strong silhouettes - embodying the FrostFrench woman.
The made-to-order FrostFrench collection comprises of 10 definitive styles including dresses and jackets that include timeless shapes and exude a womanly silhouette. Feminine slip dresses with beautiful lace detailing, and fitted jumpsuits with ruffled organza collars, which frames the face beautifully. A sharp black jacket slung across the shoulder, worn over lingerie, gives the collection an effortless rock and roll twist.
Sadie Frost, FrostFrench Co- Founder commented: “Jemima and I have been concentrating on our brands Floozie and iris and Edie at Debenhams for some time - but we felt that it was time to do something artistically for FrostFrench. People have constantly said how they still wear our clothes even 10 years on - so we decided to bring is back in a special 10 piece collection. The film acts as a creative outlet to demonstrate our creativity behind the new collection.”
Jemima French, FrostFrench Co- Founder commented: “It was really important to Sadie and I when editing the collection to just 10 pieces that we stayed true to the original FrostFrench woman, mixing up a bit of rock attitude with feminine shapes, adding a grown-up yet still playful attitude. All our pieces are versatile, to be worn out for drinks as well as in the bedroom, they’re to have fun and experiment in.”
Sadie’s production company Blonde To Black Pictures produced the short film, which was directed by Ben Charles Edwards, and included appearances from Annabel Davis, Edie Langley, Esme Drummond, Frances Ruffelle, Iris Law, Izzy Davis, Jemima French, Katie Ball, Oxford Nielsen, Remy Bennett, Sadie Frost, Sophie Young and Timothy Renouf. Guests turned out for the screening of the film at the Bulgari and enjoyed food served by Rivea Restaurant, at the Bulgari Hotel screening room.
The film unites fashion and film and celebrates strong and vocal women from their teenage years to the later years of being a grandmother. Musicians and actors convey the message, ‘Don’t mess with me’, and set in the aesthetically interesting visuals of a seedy motel- darkness and beauty stir and provoke the imagination.
The FrostFrench collection is available made-to-order early next year.
