The last Fall shows brought an array of Fetish inspired collections, some of them very explicitly, like the surprising Ungaro, that put aside for a moment the pink and purple frills and adopted a wonderful black and white palette, spiced up with leather chokers and cuffs, and others a bit more demure and veiled such as Gucci, that showed lots of colorful leather, fur and trilby hats.
Even at Louis Vuitton, Kate Moss marched down the catwalk, wearing velvet hot pants, killer lace-up boots (that were said to have taken something around 45 minutes to be put on once there is no back zipper to emphasize the ritual of power dressing up) and a cropped leather and fur jacket. The post-coital cigarette and the tiny eye mask are very illustrative of this new kinky mood fever.
Here, a few inspirational images and the latest on the runways. So cool, it HURTS.
