Currently showing their amazing designs at Paris Fashion Week, London-based brand Fleet Ilya are continually innovating with their hand crafted leather accessories; from bags to visors to corsets to harnesses for the body. This suspender leg harness, from ‘restraint’ which blurs the line between leather bondage and high fashion, has adjustable belt straps across the waist, legs and on the suspender attachments to make it the perfect fit for my body. A bold piece, I’ve been wearing it over my high waisted jeans and with a simple tucked-in tee, as well as with a tee flowing out just over the top of the jeans to reveal the suspender straps below.
Many fashion designers for both spring summer and autumn winter 2013 took cues from bondage and fetish for their collections. If you are looking for accessories in this vein that are fun and sexy, go take a look at Fleet Ilya.

You can see further examples of Fleet Ilya on my site: here styling their Diamond body piece and here a leather cuff. I’m such a fan of the brand, visiting their showroom is a delight (many pieces they design are not listed on their website, so if you have something in mind it is worth calling them.) Many thanks also to Resha and the team at Fleet Ilya for getting this piece to me so quickly after I saw it in their showroom. I adore it!
