Boy, color me astounded when I saw Kim Kardashian (I never thought that name would cross my keypad!)
In a full-on fetish get-up, complete with a gimp hood!
(and 2X so far this week no less)
Along with Evan Mock and Kim Petras – ALL making appearances within the same 24 or so hours in variations of a full Fetish hood.
Various accounts have Kim’s outfit listed as Vetements and Balenciaga, which is more or less the same, both coming from the creative mind of Demna Gvasalia.
The first (leather) outfit seems a runway Vetements set from 2018/2019 and the one she wore to the Met Gala (below) is a current Balenciaga creation.
I love the way this looks against the white stairway, but I am not quite sure what it had to do with the Theme of the gala – which I thought had something to do with American Fashion
…but I could be wrong, I don’t pay too much attention to this gala any longer, it’s become sort of an arms race to me….but it has it’s entertaining moments!
Then here are the others!
Since I started my first line- stylists from everywhere keep coming back and pulling my Fetish pieces – but always for still editorial shoots.
This has been since day one of that line. Always as accessories….not as the main statement.
A lot has been written about this in the last few days, many going over the rich history of fetish influences in fashion from Vivienne Westwood’s Seditionaries (oddly passing right over John Sutcliff) and onward but this is my favorite Article. The sentence towards the end sums it up:
“These garments allowed for both transformation and empowerment,”
So Whoa! Who knew that after all this time fetish fashion looks (and statement accessories) like these would become mainstream enough to show up at the Met Gala!
It’s just taken the world about 30 years to get there.
Check Out My World Domination Line which was founded – Yes – 30 Freeking Years Ago!!!! I guess I should celebrate!
And a final classic… whether Fashion or Fetish!
Come to think of it – You could actually just about duplicate Kim’s outfit (in much nicer leather, I might add) between my 2 lines!!!!!
