"Bless is a visionary substitute to make the near future worth living for."

This DVD features for the first time a wide range of Bless' videos from their archives (1998-2006), and documents a unique mode of cultural production in 15 movies.

Heralded as one of fashion's most innovative designers, the Paris and Berlin-based duo (Desiree Heiss and Ines Kaag) refuses to capitalize on one milieu. Constantly investigating the boundaries of style, Bless slides from fashion to beauty, interior decoration to art exhibition, collaboration with other brands to stylizd advertising. Their production, which sits on the fine line between art object and design, highly function and high fashion, is always unique and marked by the recycling and adaptation of unexpected items put to use in a totally new way.
