All the stories were filmed in and around Crosby Street." Of the new venture, Lam told Indiewire: "I’m thrilled to launch my Derek Lam 10 Crosby fragrance and film collaboration in New York – the city that inspired the fragrance collection and the film series.
It’s been a pleasure working with these talented filmmakers to bring my vision to life." The entire collection was unveiled last night at a special event, but Indiewire is pleased to debut one of the shorts, "Ellipsis," a romantic stunner starring Alia Shawkat on what, at first, looks to be one heck of an ill-fated date.
She starred as Maeby Fünke in the Fox/Netflix television series Arrested Development (2003–2006; 2013–present), and as Gertie Michaels in the 2015 horror-comedy film The Final Girls.
The series received nearly universally positive reviews, with Shawkat's performance occasionally singled out for praise. Palmer remarked that she was "one of the brightest lights on a show populated solely by bright lights," In an interview with The A. Club in 2010, Shawkat remarked that many of her "formative moments" as an actress took place on the Arrested Development set: " [Show creator] Mitch Hurwitz was like a father figure to me.
In a way, it was great to be around [the cast], because I feel that my understanding of comedy was able to grow really well during that time." In 2009, Shawkat appeared in Whip It co-star Har Mar Superstar's music video for "Tall Boy", which also featured Eva Mendes and Eric Wareheim.
Each episode focuses on one particular character, with Shawkat's Maeby, now a high school senior, featured in episode 12, "Señoritis" and appearing in several other episodes of the season.In 2015, Shawkat guest-starred on Broad City, portraying the romantic interest and look-alike of Ilana Glazer's character.READ MORE: Watch: Alia Shawkat and Wyatt Cenac Search for Answers in Two New TBS Comedies New York City’s own Crosby Street plays home to a series of fresh new short films, thanks to fashion designer Derek Lam’s recently unveiled Derek Lam 10 Crosby film collaboration.Instead of marketing his newest fragrance the old-fashioned way, Lam opted to "create something authentic that was also relevant, entertaining and shareable," which ultimately led him to "commission 10 films inspired by scenes outside the window of his 10 Crosby Street design studio and the fragrance names."

The entire project "has a thematic focus of celebration, romance, adventure, surprise and human connections."
