Despite what these pictures may suggest, whips and chains don’t really excite me and sex in the air sounds easier said than done (there is enough to think about without defying gravity as well!)
S&M is just Marks and Spencers backwards to me so why am I still strangely attracted to the fetish Fashion trend for Autumn?
I don’t think it’s the handcuffs, harnesses or dominatrix boots that are getting me going; the thought of having to add twenty minutes onto getting ready simply to tie those laces really isn't appealing.
I just love the fierce attitude that accompanies the trend. It’s not about terrifying men, merely letting them know you’re not afraid to use that stiletto if you have to.
Whilst the Louis Vuitton Night Porter theme and McQueen’s harnessed mistresses were showstopping looks, it is the details that will make this trend wearable. Leather, sheer inserts, laces and visible zips are the perfect way to suggest a naughty side without having to get out a blindfold and gag.
For me, the perfect way to wear this look is combining fetish with the forties ladylike style. You may appear the epitome of decorum in a black pencil skirt but the leather driving gloves and black sheer blouse imply a darker side.
So I have been rooting through the wardrobe again to attempt my own interpretation.
I apologise for the poor quality full-length pictures by the way. That's what you get when you start off with just a webcam.
The body-con shape and panelling detail on this Warehouse dress really emphasise the figure and I am reminded of Madonna’s Gaultier cone bra.
My waist belt is playing the part of a Louis Vuitton waist cincher and I’m trying out a bit of the Lanvin lace...a Topshop jumper from last year.
As for the stilettos-oh ladies, we all have a pair...perhaps we all have a naughty side.
