"Visuals, smells, sounds and ideas. It makes you smile and alive. Nothing can hurt you, it’s a place where memories come alive, it stays with you forever."
‘There’s no place like home’ is the name of KA WA KEY SS21 collection, which is
inspired by the designers' memories of their homes, homes in Hong Kong, Finland and London.

The film is a collective project, created by film maker Fabrizio Eramo for KA WA KEY, and is loosely based on the concept of ‘no place like home,’ explores a young man’s journey into his subconscious.

However, what at first appears to be a pleasant invitation amongst graceful beings soon becomes a chilling and terrifying nightmare.
