Pastoral by Vertigo & CURATED MNGMNT
2021

Presented by Vertigo – Lorin Mai’s multicultural fashion brand.

Separated from her Kurdish relatives, Lorin is fantasizing about their lives through the lens of her fading childhood memories: echoes of emotions, smells and vibrations.

Pastoral is a visual poem where the brand's garments meet meticulously arranged sets and a subtle audio landscape. This sultry reverie combines portraits and VHS flashbacks which depict Syrian everyday life — the main source of inspiration for Vertigo.
