Contemplating the deserted and derelict scenery where the perfectly pale, inconsolable beauties are pictured, one is faced with a dystopian cult: the sleek, gloomy gowns and the bizarre headdresses tell of a heavy-handed theocracy, a puritan feminist dystopia. “Her Public Confession” is a dire political prophecy, a dark vision of a global cult that does not end with a broken feeling of discernment or a drunken love for authority.
The geometric patterns, flowing earth coloured skirts and shiny patent complimented by the taut poses of the models elude to a clothing specific to castes and classes. Like all regimes and cults, they solely depend on their true believers: ‘A Public Confession’ would be the only and last resort.
This collaborative project by photographer Susann Loessin and creative director Emmalynn deals again in juxtapositions: The editorial, “Her Public Confession” reveals the delicate nature of beauty while reminding us of the far reaching grim consequences the wrong choices have. The location, pristine nature, is complemented by outfits from designers Thomas Hanisch, Rebekka Ruetz and Lena Hoschek, from their recent collections shown during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
