Peoples of All Nations presents its 3rd Collection in the Love Series.
Bacchus, the latest POAN film in our Love Series, is inspired by Austrian writer Arthur Schnitzler’s 1926 novella Dream Story. The book centres on Doctor Fridolin, a successful doctor, and his thoughts and considerations over a two day period following his wife’s revelation that she had sexual fantasies about another man. A confession that rocks him and leads him to wander. A journey into the dark and erotic subconscious, of Freudian fantasies. The book would later become the adaptation for Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut.
There is a distinct Freudian element to it, putting emphasis on the subconscious, which is reflected by dreamy prints in the collection, which are drawn from the fur of German shepherd dogs.
Yet, it’s a collection fit for the festival season. A tangerine tulle dress complemented by a black wool halter-neck makes a statement on the women’s side.
For him, dense, knitted smoking jackets provide a luxurious, yet relaxed look for upscale parties. A shirt with lipstick prints does not take itself too seriously, and a mirror-print t-shirt provides a reflective look.
The more approachable, down to earth segment of the collection includes simple, but refined knitwear, a subtly patterned cardigan, or a two-tone tube dress. POAN strives for modernity and honours streetwear influences, makes them their own in slouchy cotton pieces with sexy prints, inspired by bondage scenes, like an Araki print in colour.
Dressing up and dressing down, both is a valid fashion statement, for POAN, however, the love of special fabrics and an individual style must not be compromised.
The film stars Leebo Freeman, Alice Rausch and Paulina de Lanes. Directed by Barnabus Wilhelm.
