Discover Nishane’s newest collection: Shadow Play Trilogy
The main inspiration for Nishane in 2016 was the poetry of Rumi. In 2017, the SHADOW PLAY collection is inspired by traditional shadow puppetry. An ancient form of storytelling and entertainment, this puppetry is built around flat, finely articulated cut-out figures (shadow puppets) held between a source of light and a translucent screen or scrim. The cut-outs sometimes include translucent color or other types of detailing, and various effects can be achieved by moving both the puppets and the light source: a talented puppeteer can make the figures walk, dance, fight and laugh.
Nishane’s creative directors, Mert Guzel and Murat Katran, dreamed of bringing the stories of Hacivat, Karagoz and Zenne (the lead characters of the traditional Turkish shadow play) to life, through scent, and to explore the contrasting ways humans (or puppets) interact. Energetically, HACIVAT (translating roughly to Ivaz the Pilgrim) celebrates elegance, competence and a love of art. ZENNE is beauty, self confidence and flirtation. KARAGOZ represents both wit and honesty. As these three scents intersect and diverge, we experience a fragrant magic, as big and unpredictable as life itself.
