Brought to us by Balenciaga, YSL & Rodarte... In case you haven't noticed those "hooker heels" most of us are wearing in one form or another..you know, the thick high platform shoes, strappy or caged in sandals, and liquid leggings are a direct influence of the S&M, bondage, & goth scene. I love how something SOOO TABOO, SO REPRESSED, SO UNDERGROUND is SO IN YOUR FACE in fashion....and if you haven't already seen or heard the buzz of the Fetishly Sexy Photo Shoot for W MAGAZINE, featuring Bruce Willis and his model wife, Emma Heming, in some very risque bondage poses you should check it out...it's HOT! . There's so much to appreciate about this 11 page spread.. the creativity behind it, the art & intensity captured in the images & of course the fashion from the likes of Alexander McQueen, Dior, Rodarte, Nina Ricci, Dolce & Gabbana to name a few. Ever wonder what's the direct relation between sodomy & fashion??? In times of hardship we seek outlets to release tension, during America's Great Depression in the 1930's came underground burlesque shows and cabarets so it only makes sense that in the recession of 2009 many of us feel like our hands are tied...in all senses of the word...HEY... to each his own!! ;)
