For his own line of luxury jackets, Louis W., A.P.C. co-designer Louis Wong has often used movies as inspiration. His previous collections referenced various classics, from 1970s French cop movies, to Ferris Buller's Day Off, to Top Gun. For his is latest fall collection, Wong takes a more contemporary approach, with an enigmatic new short film that stands somewhere Jules & Jim and Blue is The Warmest Color.

Comfort, a short written and directed by Grant Curatola and Louis Levy, and shot using Kodak film, tells the story of a burgeoning love affair between two girls. Mysterious Syd (Sasha Frovola) disturbs the romance of a quiet couple, Coco (Zaga Skerletovic) and Bruno (Bruno Di Corcia.)
As Coco tells her boyfriend about her new "friend," flashbacks show more and more intense interactions between the two women, while Bruno struggles as he sees his partner drifting away.
The film acts as a follow up to Audition, Wong's latest fashion film, which introduced Bruno Di Corcia and won three awards at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival (Best Director, Best Cinemotgrapher, and Best Editing). The team plans to release a longer cut of Comfort to compete in the film festival circuit.
