Short Synopsis: The Immortal Game was a chess game played by Adolf Anderssen and Lionel Kieseritzky on 21 June 1851 in London, during a break of the first international tournament. Anderssen made bold sacrifices during this game, turning it into one of the most legendary games in chess history, one that historians call “perhaps unparalleled in chess literature".

We wanted to pay homage to the immortal game and chess aesthetics through fashion. For a chess game to be considered beautiful or brilliant, most players consider that it must have the following  characteristics: expediency, disguise, sacrifice, correctness, preparation, paradox, unity and originality.

This fashion film brings these two aesthetic worlds together to show how parallels can be found, creating a captivating visual story.
