It was at the 2011 Hyères fashion festival, the same year that Tsolo Munkh won the public prize, that Philippe Prouff, the director, met this Mongolian designer. Just like the public, Philippe was immediately won over by the force of her models with their extreme features, and also by her know how very close to Haute Couture. The collection’s theme was »Black Magic«. Animal-like figures immediately popped into the director’s imagination. The idea of an animal that could take on human forms, without being threatening. An idea inspired by Buddhist philosophy, not far from the designer’s own Mongolian origins.

The film’s storyline was set. It is a fairytale universe where there is an encounter between a young, fragile-looking doe and a hunter, caught off-guard. With her blonde and pale, almost translucent, beauty, model Lia Catreux perfectly portrays this fabulous creature and her extreme delicacy allows her to wear Tsolo’s pieces with the necessary candor for the part. Though the character of the hunter is not very present (Tsolo creates exclusively for women), he is present enough to evoke the idea of a hunt. There’s a play on the hunt, in which the hunted is not necessarily the one we’d expect.

Man’s place in nature is a recurring theme in Philippe’s directorial work. Such was the case in his previous film, Waster, shot on an arid island full of stones with a collection designed by Damir Doma. The style of this film is very different. The Sologne Forest seemed perfectly adapted for this world: a place where many trees and high-growing ferns are ideal for dissimulation.

THE AVANT/GARDE DIARIES PRESENT ARTIST SAGE VAUGHN »THE INTERPRETER«

© by The Avant/Garde Diaries / Direction Francesca Mirabella & Peter J. Brant / Cinematography Benjamin Gilovitz / Music Nicholas Krgovich / Sound Design Brent Kiser

Sage Vaughn lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Although he has been a painter for years, he only recently dared to identify himself as an artist. Vaughn's paintings feature bright crisp swarms of butterflies, children dressed in costume, and bored policemen in the seemingly unnatural landscapes of city life. His work explores the contrast and the overlap between the natural and human-made. A bird trapped in a car, a coyote stuck in a super market, or butterflies swarming in the unnatural form of a perfect circle.

Sage Vaughn is one of the artists chosen by Mike D to be part of the 17-day festival TRANSMISSION LA: Av Club
