FYI by Dani Read Fall Winter 2012 Exclusive
“The hypersexualized military fetish was particularly influential, and can be seen in the gold hardware and patent leather details throughout the collection,” – Dani Read
FYI by Dani Read just sent us some exclusive images from their new fall collection. The imagery debuted at the Lingerie Collective but we’re the first to showcase them outside of the show.
This season FYI by Dani Read continues to craft new erotic styles in luxurious silks and genuine leathers with a product line that has expanded to include even more functional jewelry (in collaboration with Gilding Primal Instinct) and leather accessories noted Dani Read, the founder and designer.
“I launched the brand to have a different perspective on lingerie – a feminist perspective that caters to the femme fatale and embodies the strength in women rather than making the objects. We wanted to make women feel very strong and even aggressive,” explained Dani.
Always for the femme fatale, FYI’s autumn/winter 2012 season is designed to embody the domineering “pulp siren” of the 1970’s. The hypersexualized military fetish was particularly influential, and can be seen in the gold hardware and patent leather details throughout the collection.
FYI by Dani Read Fall/Winter 2012
Dietrich Bra with Lead Me Leash attached, shown above, with classic Binding Brief tied around waist. This is a molded, cup demi bra that pushes up without padding (just a great cut!). The lower part of the cup is lambskin leather trimmed with patent piping. The top of the cup and the bra wings are stretch silk charmeuse. To incorporate a functionality aspect, the Dietrich Bra has a tiny, but powerful magnet sewn into the top of the left shoulder strap. The magnet is hidden, but holds the Lead Me Leash in place like a military braid for suggestive style or partner play use (notice the leash also has a hand-cut leather tassle whip for play as well…).
Lucia Trouser – this is a wide-leg sheer trouser for lounge or RTW. A new style for FYI, the Lucia Trouser feature deep pockets, and adjustable silk suspenders that are perfect for striptease (see our inspiration: the character, Lucia in The Nightporter in her infamous striptease scene to a song by Marlene Dietrich). The suspenders are also removable for lounging.
Antoinette Bra and Brief, Love Handles Belt – another highlight from the collection, the Love Handles Belt is a sturdy, functional waist belt for play with movable, “luggage”-style handles.
