Gosha Rubchinskiy has revealed a new photo book and film, both entitled The Day of My Death, to coincide with his SS17 show staged at Pitti Uomo this week.
Rubchinskiy presented a 3-part collection – a show, a film, and a series of photos, shot in Florence’s Manifattura Tabacchi - an abandoned 1930s tobacco factory.
Both the book and the 17-minute-long black and white silent film, directed by underground Russian director, screenwriter, and actress Renata Litvinova, are inspired by the life and tragic death of Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini. "We were inspired by his story, his poems, his films, and finally his murder, which has been sealed for 10 years," says Litvinova.

The film stars Rubchinskiy models - skateboarding brothers Titouan and Louison - along with a cameo from stylist Lotta Volkova, who introduced Rubchinskiy to Litvinova.
