Couples in Quarantine x Map London:
Love in Isolation

Elif “Forluck” Gönen and Lava La Rue team up with the cult clothing brand MAP London on an engaging short film.

The visuals created by Elif and Lava La Rue showcase several examples of Love In Isolation, each depicting all the challenges that couples have faced together since the enforced Covid-19 lockdown began. Their individual and unique experiences are perfectly documented with vibrant colours and captivating cinematography.

The clothing worn by each couple is by the reformed brand MAP London. This is the same brand that was once a powerhouse of on-trend, forward-thinking clothing in the late ’90s and early ’00s. MAP London has relaunched with graphics that pop and silhouettes not often seen from modern-day brands. 

Elif’s fantastic vision not only illustrates her passion for the subject matter but deep care for the people involved. At the same time, the film also radiates everything Lava La Rue represents and embodies a ’90s dream relived through the eyes and experiences of today’s youth.
