Forward Thinking Fashion… Fetish

Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 11-12Looking to inject some serious attitude into your wardrobe? The new season is upon us and nothing spells fierce like Autumn/Winter’s FETISH trend. Warning! This trend is not for the faint hearted and requires confidence to be able to pull it off… Fear not ladies, we at LoveScene Magazine have some guidelines on the exciting ways to wear this dark and delicious trend… Once you have an idea of how daring you are willing to go, let the fun begin!


There is a lot more to fetish than just PVC corsetry and bondage gear, and fetish has been dominating wardrobes for quite some time now. Everyone has a fetish, the difference with fashion is designers like to express this in a visual way that will inspire and excite. Celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera and Rihanna celebrate their sexuality through dress, promoting a strong image to females.


One fresh take on this daring trend is layering: contrasting textures together such as sheer tulle against oil-slick PVC. This gives a firm nod to fetish without being overpowering. On the catwalks, Louis Vuitton nailed this A/W 11-12 look by adding a touch of ladylike glamour to an otherwise black ensemble: Crisp flashes of white gloves and matching collar did not disappoint.


Another smart idea to try on for size is detailing. As any avid fashion follower knows, designers are mad for updating trends each season, creating innovative new ideas and keeping the catwalks current. To name a few details this season: waist cinching belts, seductive upper length gloves, sheer stockings, keyhole necklines, lavish lace inserts, buckles and studs can all be spotted and explored throughout the new collections.


Themes of gothic romance were seen at Lanvin as well as high-class innuendo at Alexander McQueen. Whatever look you decide to go for this season, make sure fetish is at the very top of your wish list. Wear hair sleek and don’t be afraid to wear make-up bold to complete the dominatrix appeal!
