Carne Bollente's latest collection is not for the prudish — and that is by design. The label has been on a mission since launching in 2015 to help create a more sex-positive society and it is achieving this through its erotica-ridden collections.
Continuing to create graphics that are both sexy and empowering, the streetwear brand's latest collection titled "Love Wins" is one of the most risqué to date. Adding the Parisian brand's signature illustrations to wardrobe staples from t-shirts to socks, SS22 continues its work in breaking down the barriers surrounding sexual identity.
According to the brand, the goal for its latest collection was to "create pieces that make you want to be naked in the middle of the dunes, to go under the table, to sleep with your one-night stand, to have an orgasm on top of a mountain, to take midnight bath at noon, to flirt in the locker room and much more..."
Starting with a staple for the brand, its t-shirt selection depicting couples caught in the act is back once again with lovers being found everywhere from having a poolside romp to embracing each other in a field on a sunny day. Meanwhile, a selection of hats initiates you into the "Fetish Club" and its socks introduce you to the "foot fetish club."
However, not all of the references are quite so literal. Made in collaboration with artist Mike Willcox, the label's "pussy towel" (yes, that is its official product name) presents an abstract take on female genitalia. Similarly, a camp collar shirt with another top-tier product name, the "Everyone I Did Last Summer Shirt" incorporates couples into a beachfront scene where you have to look twice to notice the sexual side of the graphic print.
