We've teamed up with the Italian fashion label to present six exclusive t-shirt designs inspired by a new short film.
LWLies are proud to announce a joint creative collaboration with Italian fashion label 55DSL and award-winning directors CANADA.
Early in 2012, 55DSL commissioned CANADA to produce Beyond Mountains, More Mountains, a short film detailing an Italian road-trip. Shot over two weeks, the film travels from the mountains in Northern Italy down to the Sicilian Island of Stromboli in the far south. It’s a snapshot of a land and a generation that lives to look good.
"We like to see foreigners interpreting what Italy means to them," explains Andrea Rosso, creative director of 55DSL. "We are always ready to explore collaboration. It‘s what keeps us inspired."
Beyond Mountains, More Mountains premiered at LWLies HQ in Shoreditch, inspiring art director Paul Willoughby and the LWLies creative team to respond to the film’s stylistic motifs with six t-shirt designs realised in a variety of mediums – from woodcut to pen and ink.
As part of the Boxpark launch, LWLies will also curate a six-week interactive experience at Studio55, the 55DSL creative hub, following a private launch on October 25 supported by Oranjeboom.
