Amidst an oceanic idyll, Alicia Vikander finds balance in beauty; she draws strength from the elements, and revels in the solitude.
Realised by Patrick Demarchelier, the film presents Nicolas Ghesquière’s homage to Japan as a journey outward to a minimalist sanctuary, and inward to the soul. Traditional landscape brocades and warrior-inspired surface details channel a dual longing for inner peace and empowerment.
As the camera sweeps over the water, landing on Alicia gazing out at the sunset, or exploring the remote terrain, it becomes clear that this assertive collection is her only link to the world she left behind.
