Watch Desiree Klein’s Surreal SS ’16 Fashion Film, ‘Les Introvertes’

+

A continuation of Desiree Klein’s project, Shampoo Ginger, the Berlin designer has returned with a surreal filmic interpretation of her SS ’16 muslin collection. The fashion short was shot, directed and edited by Weissensee School of Art graduate Resi Bender on an iPhone 5, and earned the title, Les Introvertes, after its score by Canadian artist Mocky (Kelela, Feist), who’s also Klein’s husband.

Playing off the collection’s plain cotton fabric, most often used by designers to create test garments, Les Introvertes sees three models lathering up their hair with multi-colored shampoo, as the soap organically spills onto the three-way, connected piece they’re wearing. Like with Shampoo Ginger, the result is an experiment in relinquishing control, as the colors form their own pattern on the muslin.

But beyond aesthetics, Klein describes the film as “exploring fantasy, deconstruction and iPhone authorship” through fashion—a complex lineup of tackled ideas, though the result is simple and strong, playing with the vast potential of her fabric choice this season. Watch the BULLETT premiere, below:
