Carne Bollente Offers an Escape To Ancient Greece Through Art and Culture for FW20

“THE ODYSSEX” is less about raunchiness, and more about relaxation.

Sex-positive label Carne Bollente is taking us all on a trip to Greece for its Fall/Winter 2020 collection, drawing inspiration from the country’s rich history in the arts and culture.

Titled “THE ODYSSEX,” this collection acts as a tribute to “the mix of unlikely clothes, to souvenir objects, the mixtures of seasons and colors, too-loaded suitcases, and to Greece, of course.” The result is a FW20 collection filled with color and cozy staples, bold pieces such as trousers, jackets, and viscose mesh tops printed with the iconography of Ancient Greece — think statues, vases, horses and chariots — as well as a number of clean graphic essentials such as a white shirt that’s covered in a print of a Greek town.

As much as Carne Bollente is a brand that’s all about sex, positivity, and the wearer’s relationship with sexuality and kinks, this collection takes a different approach than usual. Yes, the collection’s name is a play on the word odyssey — a spiritual experience — and sex, but the imagery is far less obvious than previous works, à la Spring/Summer 2020.

Instead, we’re treated to corduroy coach jackets that feature embroidered people running naked, and a few pieces such as a tie-dye T-shirt that uses the brand’s phallic smiley face logo. This season the most graphic piece is a T-shirt of two loves entwined on top of a fish, or another two in a suggestive stretching position.

Check out Carne Bollente’s FW20 collection in the lookbook above, and expect it to release in a few weeks time on Carne Bollente’s website.
