Exclusive Debut: Gia Coppola Shoots The Like For Zac Posen’s Target Collection

Zac Posen’s new collection with Target is aimed at a younger girl—the designer describes it as “the best summer of a girl’s life”—so when the time came to make a little video teasing the range, he called one up. Posen and Gia Coppola—who also lensed the recent Opening Ceremony teaser video—first met when Posen traveled to L.A. for a trunk show; Coppola, then 14, and her friend Natalie Love (the daughter of Teen Vogue’s Lisa Love) showed him around the city. Now 23, Coppola is trying her hand at the family business—and not the winemaking one. “She’s going to be the next Coppola force to be reckoned with,” Posen insists. “They just genetically, aesthetically, have something—they’re able to capture magic.”

Coppola shot the nouvelle girl group the Like—friends of hers since high school—primping for a show and then performing one of their songs. “We looked at old Beatles footage of them in their hotel room,” she related by phone from L.A. Posen was feeling the behind-the-music vibe, too. “There’s a really nice Jim Morrison quality in the movie—all the psychedelic lights,” he said, ticking off X’s Exene Cervenka and Lou Reed as a few of the collection’s muses. The Like, for their part, will be on hand to perform at Posen’s 24-hour Target pop-up store and party next week, when, in true rock ‘n’ roll fashion, the bash won’t end until long after sunrise. Is Posen ready for an all-nighter? “I do 24-hour days at least eight times a year for my shows,” he said. “Adding one more is really no skin off my back.”
