Oh Bondage, Up Yours!

I’ve been getting rid of loads of magazines recently. Some are just too amazing to tear up or throw away, but where possible I’ve been trying to archive my favourite images, retain any interesting information, and then chuck the rest of the magazine out. Here’s a recently rediscovered shoot that I just adore – it featured in a 2010 issue of i-D, and was shot by Nick Knight.While a lot of the truly exquisite clothes in this editorial are vintage pieces by John Galliano Haute Couture, Vivienne Westwood or Versace, most of the fetish wear is by Atsuko Kudo and House of Harlot.I’ve always loved the aggressive sensuality of the bondage look – I even liked it when I was a kid! I blame The Spice Girls. Remember Geri and Victoria’s outfits in the video for ‘Say You’ll Be There’?Amazing. I guess that when I was a child I just thought they looked kind of cool – like superheroes. And while we’re on the subject of fetish wear and supereheroes, let’s not forget the undeniable queen of latex – Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman!Bad kitty.
