For years, I have stood for a colour-grading vision of fashion inspired by the geek culture, so my visual vocabulary is full of very saturated colours, gradients and flares.

But I am also afraid of what I call the ‘Tim Burton Syndrome’; that is assuming a gimmick is your style. So, after my ‘Mysterious Skin’ story (out last February) whose art direction was 100 percent colourful, I felt the need to make a u-turn.

These stories are more related than we can think, as they explore two of my main cultural influences: ’90s grunge culture in ‘Mysterious Skin’ and ’80s gothic/punk culture in ‘A Goth Story’.

With my wonderful team, we choose to use monochromatic images: ‘black & white’ and ‘black & skin’. Emmanuelle created the styling inspired by numerous musical icons and Yumiko did an incredible job with hair to give movement and energy to the ever-flying hairs. Finally, Francesco did an all black make-up that completed Deila's looks.

I hope this story will help me to reinvent myself, as all creators should do!
