The new film for Parisian design house KENZO‘s Fall/Winter 2017 collection is here. Caribia, Charity, Chastity is written by Orange is the New Black actor, Natasha Lyonne, and marks her debut as a director, as well.

The surreal short, about a woman coming to terms with her Vaudevillian past in order to move forward with her life, stars Saturday Night Live alums Maya Rudolph (as Chastity) and Fred Armisen, Macaulay Culkin, Lyonne, and Hamilton‘s Tony-award winning phenom, Leslie Odom Jr.

Of course, the film will also feature the bright, colorful collection by KENZO creative directors, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, founders of the hip, downtown NYC fashion company, Opening Ceremony. This season, the designers take their inspiration from the beautiful, ghostly—and, yes, surreal—Northern Lights, AKA the aurora borealis, focusing on youthful styles that are sure to catch the eye of millennial fashionistas.
