British and Indian-Nigerian designer Priya Ahluwalia has chosen jazz-electro musician Cktrl for a stunning new short-film as part of her Fall/Winter 2021 London Fashion Week presentation.
Traces is directed by Stephe Isaac Wilson and aims to capture the spirit of brotherhood and unity seen in the garments through synchronized movements.
As far as the collection goes, upcycling has been brought to the next level, through the versatility of the garments, as puffer jackets become reversible, and contrasting textiles combine into one. Patchwork button-ups bring together bamboo silk with deadstock shirting, while the graphic jumpers are made in a mix of repurposed knit and sweatshirt fabrics.
You can watch Traces below, while Ahluwalia’s FW21 collection is set to launch in the near future and will be available from the brand’s online webstore.
