Apart from stocking an incredible lineup of designer brands , online retailer SSENSE has regularly put out compelling content that ranges from fashion editorials to frequent collaborations in the world of music and film. Their latest is a video that is an visionary take on the shapes, textures and colors of Spring 2014.
“Fluid Silhouettes” explores the experimental forms of SSENSE’s Spring 14 collections. Genderless bodies shift in shape and proportion, morphing into abstract translations of key men’s and womenswear silhouettes. I don’t normally recommend fashion films but this synthesis of sight and sound is well worth your time. You can view the video on SSENSE.
The audio is produced by Arca (real name Alejandro Ghersi). His excellent releases *Stretch 1/2* (UNO NYC) and *&&&&&* (self released) mixtapes are worth checking out and he recently was credited as a co-producer on four tracks off of Kanye West’s Yeezus.
London-based director Jesse Kanda has recently created music videos for FKA Twigs’ “Water Me” and “How’s That.” He is Arca’s visual half, creating all of his artwork and recently collaborating on “Anaesthetic,” a film which premiered at MoMA PS1 in October.
