Fashion designer Marcell von Berlin releases cutting edge fashion video during Berlin Fashion Week
The designer who showcased his debut collection bypassed the "old" ways of showing and instead created a fashion video installation to more effectively tell the labels story.
Aiming to merge the labels confident & edgy fashion DNA with Berlins unique and gritty street-art sensibility the team decided to integrate already-in-place art pieces by Olafur Eliason & JR into the project. The layering a fashion narrative on top of their work resulted in creative & productive clashes of imagery and a unique and very urban texture which suited the labels temperament very well.
Integrating all aspects of this project, such as Print, Digital, Video, Event & Marketing into a cohesive whole, the idea was to offer a tech-savvy and marketing-effective edge to the label which was showing a collection for the first time and demanded something edgy and high-energy.
An example of this thinking: The promotional event at Bar Tausend was treated more as a street-art installation where we re-cycled imagery and video from the still campaign.
The project was chasing it's own tail, so to speak...
A "fluorescent cube" was a central element which appeared in every part of this project and offered a visual "red thread" that held everything together. The cube was built with of-the-shelf material from any hardware store and literally held together with tape.
