September 2009 will see TheCorner.com
- the virtual space showcasing 'mini-stores' from artisans and cutting-edge brands introduce women’s collections for the first time. The womenswear labels will be featured in an innovative fashion film project, created in collaboration with SHOWstudio
and devised and directed by the visionary photographer Nick Knight.
Nick Knight presents key looks from the designer labels for men and women, including Maison Martin Margiela, Haider Ackermann, Ann Demeulemeester, Viktor & Rolf, Proenza Schouler, Rick Owens, Hussein Chalayan, Raf Simons, Kris Van Assche and Sophia Kokosalaki. The exclusive film, directed by Knight, is the result of a unique collaboration with leading fashion creatives including filmmaker Ruth Hogben, stylists Simon Foxton and Jonathan Kaye, and set designer Michael Howells. The resulting film, 'Portent', is a sensual, delicate and poetic exploration of romantic Classicism through the male and female form, accentuated by exquisite clothing from a raft of the world’s finest designers.
Previously featuring solely menswear collections from cutting edge designers, from September 2009, the research brand department store will showcase new “corners” dedicated to womenswear, featuring international contemporary designers such as Rochas, Haider Ackermann, AF Vandervost, Proenza Schouler and Charles Anastase to name but a few. New debuts for men’s brands like Undercover, the Japanese cult label will also be sold exclusively on thecorner.com
through an online customised shop-in-shop.
