The following is a press release from Tiffany & Co.:
This holiday season, Tiffany & Co. introduces the latest chapter of its “Believe in Dreams” campaign, which takes viewers behind the scenes of a Tiffany workshop where surprising and surreal moments unfold, featuring a star-studded cast of characters.
The campaign film opens at Tiffany & Co.’s iconic Fifth Avenue flagship store, where actress, musician and style icon Zoë Kravitz stars as a Tiffany sales professional working late into the evening. Kravitz is drawn from reality into a Tiffany Blue® dreamscape infused with pops of neon. At the heart of this whimsical wonderland is an underground holiday workshop with craftspeople, and at the helm is a quirky manager played by model Xiao Wen Ju. The exquisite workmanship and masterful artistry of Tiffany & Co. are brought to life in a series of witty vignettes with cameos from models Karen Elson and Maye Musk, among others. The journey culminates in a “madcap tea party” hosted by Naomi Campbell, complete with a delectable selection of pastries from The Blue Box Cafe™ and housewares and table settings from the Home & Accessories collection. By the end of the story, Kravitz discovers that the magic of Tiffany & Co. is where creativity and craftsmanship come together.
“The holiday season is a time of year when more than ever, we’re inspired to dream,” said Reed Krakoff, chief artistic officer, Tiffany & Co. “At Tiffany, our artisans work to create magic and beauty in every piece. We created this film to bring their artistry to life and capture the spirit of a Tiffany holiday where anything is possible.”
The “Believe in Dreams” holiday campaign showcases both Tiffany & Co.’s iconic and new collections, including Tiffany Paper Flowers™, Tiffany HardWear, Tiffany T, Return to Tiffany® and Tiffany Keys. The fantastical film set draws inspiration from the accessories and home collections, with life-sized designs adding another layer of surrealism. The film was directed by Mark Romanek, most recently known for creating Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” and features Aerosmith’s 1973 hit “Dream On,” sung by superstar vocalist Steven Tyler. The campaign film launches globally on November 16.
To coincide with the craftsmanship theme for holiday, the Tiffany New York flagship store will feature an actual workshop that will house jewelers, stonesetters and engravers. The Tiffany workshop will be on display, from November 16, 2018 to January 1, 2019.

About Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light. Meg Murry is a typical middle school student struggling with issues of self-worth who just wants to fit in. The daughter of two world-renowned physicists, she is intelligent and uniquely gifted, as is Meg’s younger brother, Charles Wallace, but she has yet to realize it for herself. Complicating matters is the mysterious disappearance of Mr. Murry, which has left Meg devastated and her mother broken-hearted. Charles Wallace introduces Meg and her fellow classmate Calvin to three celestial beings (Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who) who have journeyed to Earth to help search for their father, and together they embark on their formidable quest. Travelling via a wrinkling of time and space known as tessering, they are transported to worlds beyond their imagination where they must confront a powerful evil force. To make it back home to Earth, Meg must face the darkness within herself in order to harness the strength necessary to defeat the darkness rapidly enveloping the Universe.
Directed by Oscar® nominee Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Oscar winner Jennifer Lee and Jeff Stockwell based upon the beloved novel by Madeleine L’Engle, “A Wrinkle in Time” stars: two-time Academy Award® nominee Oprah Winfrey as Mrs. Which, Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon as Mrs. Whatsit, Emmy® nominee Mindy Kaling as Mrs. Who, Storm Reid as Meg Murry, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Mrs. Murry, Michael Peňa as Red with two-time Emmy winner Zach Galifianakis as the Happy Medium and Emmy nominee Chris Pine as Mr. Murry.
