Fashion brand A PERSONAL NOTE 73 (APN73) presented their Fall Winter 2021.22 collection that was inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci’s movies and the work of painter Francis Bacon. The collection was presented with a fashion film VIRTUAL-REALITY.TV, On January 17th, as part of Digital Milan Fashion Week.
We selected references for frames from his (Bernardo Bertolucci) movies and combined these with paintings of Francis Bacon, which were a powerful source of obsession and inspiration for the same Bertolucci. The blend and contrast between these influential figures personalities represented the initial stage of the creative process for the new collection.
While realising the movie for Milan fashion week, we thought we wanted to translate this traditional inspiration in a very contemporary fashion film depicting real life transplanted in a virtual setting – Andrea Pompilio
