The Heavy Hitters of NYFW

September 13, 2012 Posted by rissvandal

New York Fashion Week gave us some stunning new collections, and in my opinion, a few surprises. I expected to be blown away by The Blonds, as usual, but that ended up not being the case. While their collection was as loud and bold as always, it felt kind of stale–like they were pulling the same old “shocking” tricks without much innovation.

What I also didn’t expect was to be blown away by Anna Sui. Her collection was full of diversity and contrasts–part romantic part playful punk rock.

Model of the Week Revisited: An Interview with Lady Noctis

September 19, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

A number of months ago I introduced you to Lady Noctis, the petite alt-model and visual artist from the U.K. who’ s often found in Bizarre Magazine and has modeled for quite a few dark fashion and fetish clothing companies, such as Jane Doe Latex and Artifice Clothing. Recently I got a chance to know Lady Noctis a little better, and she  told me about early interest in fetish clothing, her inspirations, and the challenges she faces due to her height (she’s 4’11”).

I read that in your teens you became interested in waist training and fetish clothing. Tell me a bit about your teen years and growing up…did you have access to subcultures or communities that shared your interests?

My first taste of corsetry and latex was introduced to me when I was an adolescent. It was apparent within all art forms and movies that I love and adore; the aesthetics of them and the way they transformed the human body as well as their personality just fascinated me. When I was about 16 I purchased my first waist training corset, which I saved up for for quite some time. The instant I put it on, I felt a change within myself; not only within my figure but in the way I held myself. I could not afford any latex until I was 19 and with that I bought myself a custom-made Harley Quinn costume (Catsuit and Headpiece). There is not that much of a fetish scene in Wales so I never got any idea of it until 20. This was from discovering the Torture Garden, as well as some smaller clubs that seemed more suited to my attire…  (more…)

A Reminder That Everything is Better With Spikes

September 14, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

In a little more than a week I’ll be going on a little weekend trip to attend a couture fashion show in Philly. I’m not exactly sure what I plan on wearing just yet, but one thing I do know is that it needs to involve spikes.

While searching for some shoe inspiration, two particular shops caught my attention. Everlastinglifashion makes, holy crap, the most bad-ass bridal shoes I have ever seen. (more…)

Zana Bayne Leather

September 8, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

I’m a  fan of layering, as well as huge statement making accessories, and Zana Bayne’s leatherwork and harnesses are perfect. A bit industrial and fetish-y, perhaps, but the end result is highly dependent upon what you wear beneath them. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think the Fall/Winter 2011 Lookbook succeeded in demonstrating the versatility of these, and whether these pieces end up looking classy or trashy ultimately ends up in the hands of the wearer.
