Along with the relaunch of its website, finely-tailored-clothing maker Seize Sur Vingt has just released its holiday-resort film collaboration with Japanese artist Noritoshi Hirakawa. From the release:

Known for pushing mainstream conceptions of sexuality, Noritoshi’s film embodies elements of fashion, dance and Japanese spirituality. Through the art of dance, SSV and Noritoshi believed that the poetry of choreographed movement was the perfect medium to showcase both their work. While the actors were outfitted in SSV’s Holiday/Resort collection, the story and direction of the film follow the Japanese concept of “Iki-Ryo”—the belief that one’s soul can temporarily leave their body to haunt or possess another person. World-renowned artist, Karole Armitage, choreographed climatic dance sequences to capture this process of sublimation from darkness into light.
