SKINS establish a parallelism between the human being and Earth, through a common vehicle: The Skin. The skin that covers the human being as well as Earth understood from different points of view and angles. – The skin as a physical element, something material, the container where the continent can be found. – The skin understood as the clock that shows the signs of old age, with its scars and wrinkles. – The skin as a disintegrant element in relation to race. – The skin as the biggest organ in our bodies, and through the one that helps you FEEL.

TITLE 001 THE WALL COLLECTION 2021
DIRECTOR Joyce NG
“022397BLUFF 001 THE WALL COLLECTION 2021” was shot in designer 022397’s hometown: Guizhou, China. It is set in two locations of the Guizhou province, Kaili and Guiyang, constructing two parallel spaces between the city and the mountains. Kaili City is located in Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture, a multi-ethnic city dominated by the Miao minority, and retains many primitive ethnic villages and tribes. Meanwhile, Guiyang, the capital city which serves as the political and economic centre of the Guizhou province, symbolises the modernisation the minority group must succumb to in one way or another.
Joyce NG developed a keen interest in the ancient Miao culture and wrote this story interspersed in the city and the mountains. The inspiration of this story comes from the daily traditions of the ancient minority, as well as the changes that come naturally in the 21st century. She questions the labelling of “minority” and definition of the opposing “majority” in a nation so vast and diverse in geography and culture.

DIRECTOR Giulia Sgobba
BRAND Persona Milano
MY DEATH and REBIRTH from TRASH is a short film divided into four episodes, each of which features four individual characters in the act of selling their souls to the trash. How? By wearing it.
This simple action was created to metaphorically evoke how Generation Z, the innocent victim of last century’s capitalism, carries the fateful ”junk men’s burden”, the waste burden of an era of futile, unbridled consumption. How to get out of it? By recycling and self-recycling.
Every prop and every single garment used in this video is trash.
Trash dead and reborn.
TITLE ENTRANO TUTTI SENZA BUSSARE
DIRECTORS Andrea Annarita Mazza and Federico Fusaglia
BRAND I AM
People are moving at a rapid pace, horizontally, vertically.
The man in the yellow shirt is running at an angle.
He has his mobile phone in his hand, maybe that’s why he didn’t notice Giulio’s jump, and yet it was right in front of his feet.
Everyone enters without knocking, people enter the city without asking permission of those who live in the city every day and every night, those who walk the streets and warm them up.
The homeless are the protagonists of this story, people distant from the severe eyes of society.
The choice fell on a dancer, because his movements scream more than any words, and the colours and peculiarities of a homeless person scream extreme need for attention.
Life is asking us for lightness, and everything that is too heavy, extremely tragic, distances and distracts us.
It’s time to extrapolate even the most ironic sides, in order to approach every situation.
TITLE QUESTO ARMADIO NON HA PIÙ PARETI
DIRECTOR Chicco Jiang
As consumers’ environmental awareness has grown over the past decade, a new ‘sustainable fashion’ has emerged against the trend. Second-hand shopping is one of the basic principles of ‘sustainable fashion’ and follows the principle of ‘reuse’ in the concept of long-term sustainable development. In theory, the repeated use of clothes can avoid the use of water and fertilisers, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other impacts caused by the production of new clothes.
Let our wardrobe become recyclable, this will be a particularly important step today.
Director: Massimiliano Bomba
Brand: Fabio Quaranta
Fabio Quaranta FW21 collection, it’s a performance where characters discover objects as an art performance with some lightly connection with “arte povera” movement from the 60’s.

TITLE untitled, THE TREE
DIRECTOR Luca Cautiero
Untitled was born in me from the need to face the unconscious problems of each of us, as a consequence of a fragile contemporary world that destabilizes the identity of individuals. Thus the person suffers an emotional breakdown, much to start daydreaming, entering a state of apathy, from which it hardly turns away. With these moments of absence comes to separation from reality, and thus, unable to face it, the person gives vent to frustrations and enters a parallel world in which to take refuge.
DIRECTOR Ruslan Gumennyy
A young man spends time on the beach wearing a menswear collection inspired by a weaving workshop of Bauhaus after the season is over. He takes a break from city life and thinks about his past while working on the beach.
TITLE Bally Peak Outlook 2020 Expedition
DIRECTOR Samir Jung Thapa
Last fall, in conjunction with the Bally Peak Outlook Foundation, an expedition team embarked on the first phase of the “8x8000m” program to clean up the base camps of Nepal’s eight 8,000-meter mountains.
During these months of lockdown, the 47-day cleanup, led by environmental activist and mountaineer Dawa Steven Sherpa, removed 2.2 tons of waste from the base camps of Cho Oyu (8,188m), Everest (8,848.86m), Lhotse (8,516m) and Makalu (8,485m).
The unprecedented events brought upon by Covid-19 have had consequential effects on Nepal, whose tourism industry supports over 1 million jobs. Supporting the local community of the Everest region, who were deeply impacted by the absence of tourists.
The activity has been documented in a series of 4 short episodes, each one dedicated to one of the 8000mt peaks and focusing on a specific theme related to sustainability and local culture. In each of them, a relevant personality of the Himalayan community gives his voice and leads the narration. One main edit is launched to sum up the activity and to introduce the project to the community.
