Sin is the only real colour element left in modern life" The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul?” The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde inspired my collection, primarily his hedonistic lifestyle. Films Nymphomaniac I & II portray exaggerated displays of sexual desire, resulting in the fetish elements designed throughout the collection. Silks and neutral colour palettes reflect wealth and the naked form.
Core of hedonism:
- the only thing that is intrinsically good is pleasure.
- the only thing that is intrinsically bad is pain.
'According to hedonism, the goodness and badness of an event or state of affairs can be measured in hedons and dolors.'
