Brian Kenny for Bruno Magli: I WANT TO TELL THE TRUTH

Drawings, print design and a film, commissioned by the Italian fashion house Bruno Magli, in conjunction with creative director Max Kibardin, for a special project presented at Pitti Immagine Uomo 82 (Florence, Italy). Inspired by the imagery in Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1969 film Medea, a capsule collection was created, including 4 pairs of loafers and a shopping bag in a black technical fabric featuring phosphorescent embroidered reproductions of my drawings. I also produced an accompanying film made from reworked sound and footage from Pasolini’s Medea entitled “Today you’re 5 and I want to tell you the truth”. See the full collection including the original drawings HERE. They can also be viewed on BrunoMagli.com
