In collaboration with Replay, SHOWstudio has invited photographer and filmmaker Toyin to turn her signature, romantic lens on the Italian denimwear company's Autumn/Winter '08-09 collection. Though shot in Robert Adam's exquisite, 18th century London townhouse at 33 Portland Street, Toyin and stylist Stevie Westgarth gave themselves poetic license to shift the date forward to the 19th century - the wild west to be specific - where winsome girls swooned over bare-chested boys who cracked bullwhips and wore the bowler hats of frontiersmen. But this resultant film short is no Calamity Jane-style caper. The faded elegance of the Georgian backdrop, combined with the contemporary energy of both choreography and Replay's collection, creates a spellbinding visual feast. To an electrifying soundtrack, specially composed by the Doi, sit back and witness the extraordinary models' performances that are this filmmaker's hallmark.
The italien artist Esther Stocker started studying in Vienna 1994 at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste and finished her studies later at the Art Center College of Design, California in 1999. Since 1995 Stocker had exhibitions all over the world. Her fields are paintings, installations, wall works, photography and video.
