What’s interesting for fetish enthusiast in fashion this autumn?
This hat is a fighter: it’s hard as nails in all senses of the word. Wrap yourself in an electric pink coat, topped off with a peaked cap and no one is going to mess with you. This is a hat with attitude!

Disciplined is one word for this season’s LV collection; kink is another, but more on that in a minute. First, the silhouette: If the sculpted jackets, blouses that buttoned up the back, and below-the-knee pencil skirts were a few millimeters more forgiving, they were bisected by waist-defining belts in shiny cordovan. Pants had a jodhpur shape—the discipline of dressage. And puff-sleeved, Peter Pan-collared French maid uniforms came tricked out in plasticized lace or decorated with appliqués in the shape of platform pumps, masks, and handcuffs.
As for the kink, where to start? There were rubber dominatrix boots (instant hits, those), see-through flasher macs, and let’s not forget the lace-ups that exposed a bare expanse of Kate Moss’ thighs below retro briefs.
Lace, leather, whips and chains are the key elements of the hot and exciting Kelly Mittendorf Vogue Japan December 2011 photoshoot. Appropriately titled ‘A Fashionable Fetish,’ the edgy editorial showcases some of the finest dominatrix-inspired fashions.
