We’re obsessed with David Strindberg‘s latest film, ‘Naken’, an experimental collaboration with dancer Matthew Morris.
The slow graceful moves of Matthew’s body and the floating chiffon, the fast glitchy post production editing and the eerie audio is absolutely spellbinding!
While I’ll often only watch the first 30 seconds of a fashion film, but I sat through the entire film and even watched it again after because it’s just so beautiful. I honestly haven’t seen a fashion film this good in a long while.
In his own words, David explains, “We met in this warehouse in east London and filmed until we were pretty much kicked out. Matthew is an amazing improviser and the way he decided to interact with the cloth inspired me to later develop that part even further in post production – the amalgamation of skin and fabric. I’m always looking for contrasts, and this time I found it in the soft bare skin and flowing black cloth combined with digital artefacts and bizarre soundscapes.”
