BOUDOIR NOUVEAU

Beauty has largely been commodified and attention paid to this aspect of selfcare is often criticized as superficial, only going skin-deep. And yet, we remain pre-occupied with this matter as a representation of the self.

The Intimacy of Colors

Skin color has so often and still defines who we are. But rather than classify people according to it, let's explore all the colors that create the pattern of our skin and create the uniqueness of the biggest organ we are made of.

Skin as a language

Given the interest to the appearance in our societies, regardless for the time or location in history and given the importance given to the skin as a tool of expression, it was time to get deeper into the dermis to reveal its full potential.

 

Inspired by the cosmetic industry, this experiments aims to create a design language through the multiple textures the dermis can offer.

"Many intellectuals would have us believe that beauty is inconsequential. Since it explains nothing, solves nothing, and teaches us nothing, it should not have a place in intellectual discourse. But there is something wrong with this

picture. Outside the realm of ideas, beauty rules. Nobody has stopped looking at it, and no one has stopped enjoying the sight"

Nancy Etcoff, Survival of the Prettiest

"Finally, an intimate space  to reconcile our inner and outer self"

Designed to give a physical space to the topic of Beauty, which has been largely marginalized as a superficial subject, and engage a further conversation on the importance we give to our body.

 

Inspired by the historical Boudoir, as a space charged with sexuality as it was seen and female empowerment, as it really was, this nouveau Boudoir aims to claim some space for our body as a full part of our identities rather than a tool employed by our brains.
