Brooks explained to Portable, “the story comes from a time in my life that I wanted to be with someone I loved, but knew I couldn’t. A feeling I think a lot of people can relate to in one way or another.”
Through these choreographed movements, the viewer is able to see the intricate strict structures and more relaxed ebbs and flows of each individual piece. Styled for the gloomy northern Fall/Winter season by fashion director Sarah Perillo, high end, high street and cult pieces come to a head, from the likes of Duckie Brown, Florshiem, General Idea, Highland, Nicholas K, Verlaine, Danielle Kallymeyer, Barbara Briones, Nouveau, Rochambeau, Topman and Waldrip, and are mixed together to create a dark color palette focusing on heavy and luxe materials and the basic comfort they bring us.
Brooks told Portable, “the movement in this film is all choreographed pedestrian movement. Or movement that could occur in everyday life. My contemporary dance background has influenced the way I use musicality in both the movement and editing of all my films. I’m inspired by choreographers like Erica Sobol and Travis Wall to use even the smallest gesture to tell a story. Finding a way to translate this into fashion film has unlimited potential for story telling. I’m excited to see where it will go from here.” This exploration also highlights the overall presence of UN:LIMITED, whose aim as an ‘Interactive Fashion & Art Magazine, dedicated to the unlimited possibilities of Interactive Publishing’ is represented by the movement and boundary pushing ideas.
