The mythical figure of Pandora and the trailing serpent were the focal inspiration points behind Zeus+Dione SS 22 collection. The resulting designs aim to narrate a story of the past through a contemporary design language. The collection invites us to enjoy the spirit of liberation that comes with change and flirt with the frivolous atmosphere that fills the air during the hot summer months.
Pandora, who was the first mortal woman to be fashioned out of the earth by the gods and who endowed her with charm, both allured with her beauty and was allured by the secrets in a jar. The trailing serpent on the other hand is not only a symbol of rebirth and creative life force but also suggests temptation. These two starting points influence the recurring motifs that set the tone for this flirtatious collection. The keyhole necklines both reveal as well as disguise and are equally as narrow as they are deep. The decorative, embellished serpent on the other hand literally trails around garments seductively. The overall collection is marked by doric simplicity, an empowering play on geometric shapes created with dramatic cutouts, and a positively energetic use of color.
