Quiet on set! Pyer Moss presents “Production and Persuasion” — A cry for help by Tracee Ellis Ross, a short film starring the Blackish actress as a fashion executive decked out in a sickening pair of white boots (sorry, they are sold out!) and a structured suit from the brand’s ‘Collection 3.’ Per the release, “the visual follows the shapeshifting fashion mogul as she scours the globe in search of production for the always sold-out collection: Pyer Moss.  From LA Valley Girl to highly caffeinated New Yorker, Ellis Ross embodies the collective intense anticipation of inventory availability.” The film is a satirical take on fashion industry archetypes, and Ross flawlessly executes each one with her hilarious performance. Ellis Ross thanked designer Kerby Jean-Raymond and Pyer Moss for allowing her to put some of her accents to good use. 

The film is the third installment in the Pyer Moss “Always Sold Out” video series, following the first two installments, “Think Bigger” and “Always Sold Out—A Love Poem” which featured poems by Evan Williams and Marika Brown. Naturally, the brand shared the video across socials — you can see it at the bottom of this post — but we have to say, we’re loving the synergy between Pyer Moss and friend to the brand, Ellis Ross. So much so that she’s even interviewed the designer, getting Jean-Raymond to open up. But don’t take our word for it. Allow us to present the evidence.

Do we really need to say anything else at this point?

Friendship with Ellis Ross aside, Jean-Raymond and Pyer Moss are on a roll with its trilogy of conceptual films, a highly-anticipated return to the runway at New York Fashion Week this September as well as being invited to show haute couture this summer — and we love to see it.
