Last year, Opening Ceremony built a pop-up shopping mall out of shipping containers on Pier 57 for New York Fashion Week. For SS15, they're scaling down in size, but not ambition – and they've roped in Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill to help. 

The American director behind Her and Where The Wild Things Are will be directing a one-act play for Opening Ceremony's runway show in September. Superbad actor Jonah Hill is on co-writing duties.

There's no word on what the show will be about, only that it'll involve both actors and models. (And the SS15 collection, obviously.)

The news was announced by Black Frame earlier today:

Jonze is a long-time associate of the brand. Back in 2009, Opening Ceremony collaborated with the director on a faux fur collection inspired by Where The Wild Things Are, while costume designer Casey Storm's pieces for Her inspired a Theodore Twombly-style capsule collection.
