Where the runway meets the street

Sixpack France worked with Steven Harrington and Justin Krietemeyer’s graphic studio, National Forest, as the latest extension of their time-scanning Autumn/Winter 2009 line. The work is presented in a capsule-collection homage to Superstudio’s Fundamental Acts series and is entitled “A bizarre travelogue into radical dramatic architecture”.

Created from 1971 to 1973, the “Fundamental Acts” were a series of 5 experimental movies centred on the relations between architecture as a conscious formalization of the planet, and human life. The whole series was based on Gustav Freytag’s classical dramatic structure. Each video made a natural progression into the following five acts: the exposition; the rising action; the climax; the falling action and the catastrophe.

National Forest adapted this dramatic pyramid structure into a series of five abstractly designed clothing pieces: Life-Youth-Ceremony-Love-Death. Physically, they take form as 4 t-shirts and a jacket. The line is now available online here.
