The shooting

This film is a fondness of Dries Van Noten understanding of fashion as a protraction of art and as a way to bring about social and cultural reflection, thus creating a passionate dialogue between the sublime and the mundane. A metaphore of resurrection and of the return to the light, this film is also a tribute to the spirit of fashion; a reawakening of the new after the twilight of the days gone by. This fashion film attempts to be a parable of the trip of purification that one’s soul undertakes when it departs from the body. It revitalizes within a new, purer, more innocent repository. We aim to describe a process of spiritual regeneration in a way both sophisticated and thorough. We want to stress the liturgical element; to underline the artistic solemnity and the mystical symbology so as to reinforce the message that people’s soul –and their life, for that matter– not only flows, but is mutable and eternal.
