Crème Caramel on

Part Three of the NOWNESS #DefineBeauty series, in ‘Crème Caramel’, directed by Canada, we get to witness how a man sees the woman of his obsession.  Canada’s Nicolás Méndez + Lope Serrano deconstructed the sensuality of the female form from the mundane to the profane + the obsession behind it.  As for their inspiration, Serrano told NOWNESS, ‘When you are obsessed with someone, it’s not just with that someone—it’s with the shape of the hips, the color of the nipples, or the shade of her hair when she comes out of the shower.’  Yet, Serrano explained the a crème caramel was the perfect metaphor for a hetero male’s view of the female body as ‘something sweet, tender and beautiful.

Featuring drawings created by Serrano, with the climactic soundtrack by French band La Femme’s ‘La Femme Ressort’, you get that Seventies ironic feel of both innocence + sex appeal.
