Nicholas Daley, one of the eight recipients of the LVMH Prize 2020, premiered his new fashion film ‘The Abstract Truth‘ directed by Amy Douglas-Morris Benavides and Mathias Karl Gontard during London Fashion Week following up on his FW20 collection shown earlier in the year during January. The short conveys Afrofuturism, psychedelic rock, and experimental jazz and more enhoused in the collection.

“Continuing his exploration of the interplay between music and style, this season the designer collaborated with south London jazz scene musicians Kwake Bass, Wu-Lu, and Rago Foot. Directed and edited by Amy Douglas-Morris Benavides and Mathias Karl Gontard, the film reveals Daley’s runway show from London Fashion Week Men’s in January 2020, whilst capturing the seemingly ever-evolving psychedelic rock performance. The footage tracks the simultaneous journey of The Abstract Truth collection being presented and the special score from the musicians in which the music performed becomes the soundtrack for this entire video.”
