Kiko Kostadinov's presentation for the Spring Summer 2021 collection was held in digital space. Working closely with Kiko and his team, we realized the digital architecture enabling it. Admission was by personalized invitation, allotting 60 minutes to experience a film procuced in collaboration with Robi Rodriguez and the following runway show exactly once.
We imagined the remixed public version as an eerie, distorted echo haunting the halls of Strawberry Hill House. Our visual direction fuses Kiko Kostadinov's industrial digital identity with the angelic seasonal mood – employing realtime video dithering, three-dimensional illustrations and analogue image-making techniques to create a highly textured digital space.
