Whether known for his post-Soviet influenced collections, striking photography exposing Russia’s youth or limited edition Youth Hotel book, Gosha Rubchinskiy is a multidisciplinary creative with a unique vision that was first brought to the world thanks to COMME des GARÇONS and Dover Street Market. Today the Russian fashion designer, photographer and filmmaker unveils a new short film just as he presents his new menswear collection for the season.

Filmed inside the setting for today’s runway show — an abandoned 1930s tobacco factory – The Day of My Death is a touching black and white silent film directed by acclaimed Russian director, screenwriter and actress Renata Litvinova (also a good friend of Rubchinskiy and Demna Gvasalia of Vetements) that comes inspired by the late Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini, an openly gay political and cultural figure prevalent during 1960s and 1970s Rome whose subversive work often religious and sexual in nature had cast him as controversial.

“We were inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini, his story, his poems, his films, and finally his murder, which has been sealed for 10 years,” said Litvinova, “his reputation was being blackened, and we decided to bring the justice back: Pier Paolo is a genius, an artist, who suffered for his principles.” Alongside a cast of friends and family including Litvinova herself, her daughter Uliana Dobrovskaya, Volkova, and models Lousion and Titouan Savignoni, Rubchinskiy also stars in the short as a Russian soldier in a short but sweet cameo.
