Tamzin Lillywhite, Blog Reader, is one of the most intriguing leather accessories designers I know of.  Her accessories have graced countless fashion publications – handmade from start to finish in England they boast a fabulous design quality.

For autumn winter 2012 Lillywhite’s collection showed a Joan of Arc, Statue of Liberty-esque theme.  Leather corsets, spiked crowns and cross body bags (akin to a quiver for holding arrows) denote a tough yet feminine armour for the wearer.  Actually Tamzin’s bags are some of my favourite pieces from her collections overall, beginning with her very first range in 2011.

This skirt-harness from Tamzin Lillywhite was a piece I noticed in the HPR London showroom at their Press preview day.  I love the drama of the design and how the back of it sits over a style like this fishtail-like dress from BCBG Max Azria. As an introduction to the designer I hope these images encourage you to check her out in more detail – her chokers and cuffs especially make lovely gifts for anyone who leans towards this particular style.

Happy Sunday, Blog Reader.  Today I have to get my warrior-woman on for the gym (it’s always a struggle to get active at weekends…) there may be some St Patrick’s day celebrations after – happy St Paddy’s Day everyone!

    You are a rare woman, Sarah – there are very few who can pull off the pieces you wear with such elegance and grace. I imagine I’d look a bit like I’d been popped into a sausage casing in this leather piece, but you make it look enviable!

      I agree with Cee — you look absolutely stunning in the skirt harness, and I think that the pairing with a long, black gown is beyond appropriate, it’s just awesome.

      It’s quite McQueen, actually, don’t you think?
