Humberto Leon has swapped fashion for film with new feature The Everything.

The co-creative director of Kenzo, who helms the label with Carol Lim, has written and produced the new movie, which editors at WWD describe as a “lighthearted drama about a family of teenagers with unusual powers that bring them together”.

Resident Evil actress Milla Jovovich stars as the matriarch, with Sasha Frolova and X-Men: Apocalypse stars Alexandra Shipp and Kodi Smit-McPhee featuring as a group of young characters.

Regina Hall, Jay Ellis, Zsela Thompson and Leo Reilly also make up the cast, and filmmaker Spike Jonze has a cameo.

Kenzo’s fall 18 collection features throughout the 27-minute film, and the luxury label’s La Collection Memento No. 3 is also on display.

Leon and Lim, who are also behind U.S. retailer Opening Ceremony, frequently collaborate with writers and directors when it comes to Kenzo campaigns.

They previously teamed with Oscar winner Jonze on My Mutant Brain, an advert for the Kenzo World perfume, which starred The Leftovers’ Margaret Qualley.

“We all have known each other for such a long time. It’s one of our favourite things when we get to work with people we know and admire so well,” the designers previously told Buro24/7 of working with Jonze and Kenzo World’s bottle designer, Patrick Li. “Both of them are geniuses in their respective fields and we were lucky that they were free to work on this project with us.”
