How great is this fashion film for Raquel Allegra‘s AW/13 collection?  It so reminded me of Marina Abramovic’s ‘Light/Day‘ with performance artist, longtime collaborator + ex-lover, Ulay.  In Marina’s (godmother of performance art) version however, they’re kneeling.  

I just love the juxtapositions at play here:   The collection as a whole, is full of separates, very light in weight + silhouette, which would call for a less aggressive situation like sitting in front one another above – confrontation is never comfortable but bearable for very few.  Then the action of slapping one another, isn’t exactly a soft one, especially as the video progresses, with the slaps getting harder.

Love, love, love!
