To celebrate our Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion 2013 partnership with Tourism Northern Territory, our creative team headed north to Alice Springs to create a S/S13/13 campaign and fashion film. The collective brief was to capture the beautifully evocative essence of the Northern Territory and our team were given access to some of the NT's most majestic ‘off-the-beaten-track destinations, including the West Macdonnell Ranges and Rainbow Valley.
With this film, our Director Oliver Heath contextualizes the stark themes explored in the 'Wanderlust' collection and see's Valentina Sykes embodying an ethereal, intergalactic nomad who traverses the hauntingly beautiful terrain of the Red Center. Through Valentina's eyes we see the mélange of juxtapositions of the Australian Outback and how it inspires simultaneous feelings of beauty, awe and terror.
We hope you enjoy.
