Dior Homme released its F/W '15 ad campaign earlier this year with new face Boyd Holbrook, an actor/model/artist also known for his ended engagement with actress Elizabeth Olsen. To follow up the stills, the French fashion house has released a short film, Paris XVIE, that keeps tightly to the “effortlessly contemporary” Dior Homme image.

The project’s director, Willy Vanderperre, says, “We wanted somebody that we could explore the filmic idea with further, and it was Kris [Dior Homme’s creative director] that suggested Boyd. He plays the part of an American in Paris walking in different parts of the city, picks and preserves flowers as his memory of those places. He dances in is apartment s a nod to Gene Kelly and those big, emotion American films at the end.” While the print campaign certainly embodies the cinematic concept, only film can truly bring it to life. Watch the short above.
