Designer Dispatch: Libertine’s Johnson Hartig goes to India
From the master himself, Mr. Stefano Branchini - Matt Singer
I’ve given you guys a few teasers of this video, but this is the final thing. I picked 12 collections from Spring 2013 and set them to Tchaikovsky’s “Apotheosis” from Sleeping Beauty. It’s essentially the finale of the performance when all the conflict has ended. When something undergoes an apotheosis, it means it’s elevated to divine or heroic levels. Sweet word. I believe there is also a cancer treatment that goes by the same name, but I’m a little hazy on that end of it. Watch it in full screen, watch in HD.
The collections included are:
DRIES VAN NOTEN
3.1 PHILLIP LIM
Holiday Windows Inspiration (Act 5: Finale): Busby Berkeley’s kaleidoscopic camera shots.
