Back in December, Blog Reader, I introduced you to FYI by Dani Read, whose aptly titled ‘Women are Weapons’ strapline is all the evidence you need of a sleek, strong lingerie and boudoir accessories brand . This piece, the Ilsa Harness, is from Read’s SS13 collection ‘The Replicant’, a collection that perfectly embodies Read’s fearless aesthetic as a designer.
“A science fiction heroine wielding her powers of seduction: The collection features lingerie and lounge wear, along with our widest selection yet of luxury leather bondage and fetish accessories.”
The Ilsa Harness comprises a choker and leather belt joined down the front, between the chest, with a connecting piece of leather. My other favourites within the collection include the Baratta lambskin gloves and the Binding brief. These are pieces for the femme fetale. As the slogan suggests: Woman are weapons. Dress yourself as such.
