    Watch Melissa Tofton S/S 16 fashion film 'Leather'

    The designer Melissa Tofton cut her teeth at Middlesex University, Savile Row's Henry Rose and at a specialist leather bondage store in Berlin. Influenced by these experiences, her clothing fuses bondage with tailoring and craftsanship.

    For her S/S 16 collection, Tofton has teamed up with photographer Katja Mayer, set designer Miguel Bento and Feast Films, creating a fashion film titled 'Leather.' Featuring Stoya, the adult film actress, 'Leather' is intensely sensual and passionate, with entwining bodies battling with the juxtaposition between restriction and movement.

    With a sci-fi soundtrack by Yasmina Dexter, the film captures the tactile conversation between textures and bodies, clad in Tofton's pices for the spring/summer season which utilises pony skin, hand-rippled chiffon silks, horse hair and cashmere wools.

    Watch the haunting 'Amor' fashion film

    Nick Knight has taken his Amor shoot for V Magazine one step further, championing the medium of fashion film once again. 

    The original shoot first took inspiration from Anselm Kiefer’s blackened sunflower heads and set out to explore the many parallels between love and creativity. With the help of Amanda Harlech, Knight further embraced the concept in this fashion film, choosing to set the final images of model Molly Bair ablaze. The film begins with a haunting look through the imagery then sees Bair's fire-lit face melt before being pieced back together again.  

    Watch the entire film and don’t forget to take a look at the corresponding image gallery and behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot.

'Despite all the viciousness that has come out my mouth, I still get excited at the shows and I still think they're very important culturally.

    Watch Nick Knight's 'Floriental' fragrance film for Comme des Garçons

    What does a flower with no scent smell like? Comme des Garçons have the answer with their new fragrance, Floriental. To celebrate the launch, the brand tapped long-time flower lover Nick Knight to create a film exploring this re-imagination.

    This time round, Comme have thrown out the formal rules of perfumery. Based on the odourless cistus flower, Floriental is unlike any other perfume. The fragrance has no definitive notes, resulting in a confusing yet intoxicating blend of sandalwood, pink pepper and plum liqueur.      

    Knight’s film reflects this untraditional disruption in the form of a flower breaking down and disappearing into nothingness. Check out the entire film and take a look at Knight’s photography book focused on all things flora and fauna.
