The hand is the part that shows many things about a person; age, occupation, personality and mood. In the stunning trailer produced by the 1985 producer, legendary designer Kenzo Takada says a lot about himself with his hands.
Below is the ad about the fashion designer Kenzo Takada:
With movements and hand forms, the founder of luxury fashion brand Kenzo reveals a bit of his true self, which is seldom seen in the fashion business.
In the short video above, the filmmaker asked a series of questions for famous designers. But instead of paying attention to the face of the interviewee, the camera turned around gently following the movement of the hands. As a designer yourself, Kenzo placing importance on this part of the body as it gives him vision and strength.
Alternating between shots of his hands pointing, waving, drawing or gently gliding on a tiny piano, a narrative voice spoke softly as if it encapsulated some filmmaker’s thoughts: ” The hands are an instrument of the soul. “
Admittedly, the footage “The hands of Kenzo” has created a bold personal portrait of the legendary fashion designer. The uniqueness in the style of the film is also in the harmony between the impressive depictions and the gentle and deep background music.
