Random Identities released a short film featuring performance artist M.J. Harper, becoming the latest label to hold a digital presentation. The short film, titled DOMESTIC (between wars), was shot on location at the Berlin premises of Random Identities founder Stefano Pilati.

The film, and its title, are inspired by events around the world over the past six months, described as “the mood and intensity of being a creative while questioning one’s own existence during a world at war and finding balance between sadness and destabilization, hope and change.”

The collection featured in the film covers stand-out items from previous Random Identities releases. Highlights include the label’s “Berlin Baggies” trousers, which feature prominently, as well as statement footwear and shirting. Additionally, Pilati has taken inspiration from “club nostalgia” of a time when people got dressed up to go out.

Launching the project, Pilati described the film as an “urgent impulse to fight against the uncertain reality of succumbing to the ever indomitable search for beauty and for love, despite deaths and bloodsheds. Fashion, to me, is an artistic expression after all, and therefore part of the narrative reflecting our time. Although, my Fashion, duly careful to avoid screaming loud statements, instead allows and creates the space for statements to be made.”

You can watch the film above. Additionally, it can also be viewed in person at Reference Studio in Berlin.
