MYTHOPOEIA

Coco de Mer presents a dark fantasy come to life. Our AW21 collection explores fairytale concepts and innate human eroticism inspired by mythic symbolism in literary and visual arts. Influenced by the distinctively grotesque erotic illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley, and the powerful enchantment conveyed in Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Mythopoeia captures the need for escapism and a return to nature through the prism of ancient folklore.

Each collection embodies an otherworldly creature, from the fairy queen to the mermaid, the nymph to the evil queen. Transcendental notions are captured through textural fabrics, shimmering embroidery and ethereal silhouettes. Mythopoeia is an invitation to connect and surrender to your senses through escapism and opulence.
