SEIÐR / TITANIA INGLIS X KLLER COLLECTION / 2016
Brooklyn-based designers Titania Inglis and K/LLER COLLECTION have collaborated to create a short fantasy film ‘SEIÐR’ (pronounced seithr). Directed by Jeff Elstone (InAisce, Chelsea Wolfe) and shot by Jack Shanahan (Mr. Porter, Vs., Hogan), SEIÐR is a modern melancholic tale of dark and light, order and chaos, inspired by the ancient matriarchal spirituality of the Vikings. The storyline explores an encounter in a secluded mansion between a mysterious thief (Nana Takagi) and the reclusive lady of the house (Francesca Vuillemin), whose civil interaction quickly devolves into a battle of life and death. The film is beautifully punctuated throughout with a series of Titania Inglis styles and K/LLER’s signature brass adornments.
Sublimely complementing the mood is a custom soundtrack by American singer-songwriter Chelsea Wolfe. 'After the Fall’ is an instrumental mix which was produced exclusively for the film. Collaborating with Wolfe for Inglis and K/LLER was an organic choice. Both designers along with director Jeff Elstone, have worked with Wolfe in the past, drawn by her kindred aesthetic and signature artist style.
The collaboration is the first between the eponymous clothing label Titania Inglis and accessories brand K/LLER COLLECTION, founded by Katie deGuzman and Michael Miller. The independent designers were first introduced in 2014, who gravitated towards each other for their shared contemporary-minimalist meets rock and roll aesthetic, responsible design and production philosophy, and their proud Brooklyn roots.
