Nick Knight and Matthew Williams, the man behind Alyx, have teamed up once again for stunning campaign visuals. The two first worked together, on Alyx, when Knight shot the brand on the Willis sisters for a V96 fashion editorial, in 2015. Their latest joint venture highlights Alyx's Resort and Spring 2017 collections, which see select pieces created in collaboration with Italian motorcycle-wear brand Spidi.

Through almost epileptic cinematography, the film follows a bike rider, played by Hattie Claxton, in the Alyx x Spidi collection. As she rides in the pitch black darkness of the night, only Claxton's reflective ensemble and bike shine, like a futuristic phantom. Or, like a more metallic and fashionable Tron scene. The full film stars Ysaunny Brito, as well, was styled by Stella Greenspan, and has an original score by Jeppe Laursen.

On the project, presented by SSENSE, Williams says, "The concept of a motorcycle rider clad in full 3M riding alone in the night has been something I wanted to make come to life for a while now. I’m so happy to present this with SSENSE and through the aesthetic and community that they have built, and which I have now become a part of. Working with them, along with Nick Knight really allowed for the project to come to fruition in sublime ways I never thought possible.”

The full film will be released on Monday, November 14, on SSENSE.com. The collection will be available soon.
