Coco de Mer and Wanda Orme have collaborated on a series of sensual images which showcase Coco de Mer’s latexwear collection in Wanda’s signature style.
Wanda’s process is driven by resonance and instinct. She follows what draws her to something and then questions it. Her work is a product of that conversation between desire and a kind of playful analysis. The sense of potency in the work is important to her – “that the work has an energy which exceeds the image”. These images explore ideas of surplus excess and bloom in relationship to sexuality – “the waxing moon, overflow and abundance”. A statement of unashamed fetish couture, Coco de Mer’s memorable latex creations are as much high fashion as they are salacious boudoir apparel.
Wanda Orme says: “I have always loved lingerie, for myself and for the sharing. It’s the pleasure of the exchange, watching oneself, being watched. Coco de Mer is a brand that I feel has captured this play and exchange, lingerie that women enjoy firstly for themselves, and then in the sharing.There is a sensibility in Coco de Mer that I feel traces the edges of the private both aesthetically and metaphysically. The aesthetic is nuanced and provocative.”
