Travel & Safari were crucial concepts for Engineered Garments SS 2015 collection. Head designer of the brand Daiki Suzuki mentioned the 1996 film "The English Patient" and British military-influenced garments. From there, I started concept-making for the short film. I came up with a concept of a mix of British LRDG (Long Range Desert Group), And Homage to 70-80's outdoor brand catalog images.
