Gap Dress Normal in Fincher Films

US clothing brand Gap is running “Dress Normal”, a campaign promoting the Spring range of adult clothing. Four black and white films filmed by David Fincher, “Golf”, “Kiss”, “Drive” and “Stairs”, capture models in the middle of critical scenes. Despite wearing conventional clothing each manages to break out of the expectations of normal behaviour. “Being your most authentic self is a style that will always endure”. The short films follow on from a series of print ads featuring Anjelica Huston, Elisabeth Moss, Michael K. Williams, Zosia Mamet, Jena Malone, Luke Grimes, Olivia Thirlby and Bobby Canavale.
