Fashion house ACT N°1 presented their Fall Winter 2021.22 Collection, that explores powerful transformation through hard times, and celebrates rising from the ashes – life winning death, creation overcoming destruction – with a fashion film shown at the recently finished digital Milan Fashion Week. The collection stays true to the brand’s codes and challenges traditional dressmaking, while the signature landscape Chinese fine art continues to be the brand’s symbol.
“The mood is attained in the concept of Earth as a force capable of absorbing civilizations. A contemporary room invaded by sand. Human memories that remain in creations, shaped like pain-tings and history reflected through antique Chinese watercolor paintings hanging on the white walls of a gallery. Paintings turn into clothing and move like a sundial, shaping dancers circling clockwise around the room. The vision translates time passing and the change of things, the evolution of humanity. The future repeats itself and the past always follows around, in a perpetual race. A girl covered in pearls, eternally asleep, is surrounded by her community, covering her with flowers. Is she lost or dead? A ballerina dancing on pointe portrays the phoenix death through the purification of fire, destroying what has been, while being born again from its own ashes.” – from ACT N°1
