As a part of this season’s digital London Fashion Week, British designer Nicholas Daley has revealed “Stepping Razors”, a short-film for his new Spring/Summer 2021 menswear collection. And it celebrates martial arts and 70s reggae.
Daley has tapped into the rich world of kung-fu movies for “Stepping Razors” to pay tribute to the warrior spirit of reggae legend and martial arts enthusiast Peter Tosh.
Starring Jordan Thomas, the film channels the visual texture of the era’s cinema, with multi-screen layouts, karate kata posters and bold graphics.
British reggae producer Dennis Bovell provides the film’s soundtrack, a feature that continues to play a vital role in all of Daley’s collections, driving the energy and atmosphere of each and every release.
