Nik Thakkar is one half the London menswear team Ada + Nik and a regular on list of the sexiest men of social media. Nonetheless, he stays behind the camera in SYN, a new film he's and his partner have directed.
Syn means 'with' in Greek and the film is a dark, arty work starring Duran Fulton Brown speaking in poetic verse penned by the designers and B.A. Zanditon. This fifth short film by Ada + Nik is also part of their ongoing collaboration with Hollloway Prison (where Lady Diana Mosley was imprisoned in WW II) and London College of Fashion which teaches inmates to make bespoke clothing in hopes they'll be able to use these skills to find work once they leave prison. Fashion for a good cause!
