Fashion week shows across the globe are serving up sex, and unabashedly incorporating BDSM into the runways this year. No longer taboo, BDSM’s influence in fashion and pop culture grows daily and it looks like we’ll all be sporting leather and harnesses this fall.

We are seeing many a runway cross over to the dark side, sporting strappy leather looks and bondage-themed accessories. Noticing the surge in BDSM style popularity, upscale pleasure company Zalo has just launched their first BDSM gear collection.

Zalo is renowned for upscale pleasure products unlike any others. Boasting the finest quality & engineering, their self-love paraphernalia is painted in candy pastel colors and packaged in dreamy, girly boxes. They truly are leading innovators in creating a luxury intimacy experience. Now Zalo is setting the bar once again, with opulent, hand-crafted leather BDSM gear, the Doll Collection.

Quality Construction

Supple Italian leather studded with gold chains and rose motifs dominates the Doll collection by Zalo. A perfectly balanced line for the novice or the seasoned player, Zalo brings us a collar and cuffs set complete with leash, a rose ball gag, a leather whip and a fierce riding crop.

Zalo owner Peter Ovsonka notes “this series can be said to be suitable for both advanced and entry players. The source of inspiration for this collection is roses. For the lighter players who are getting started, it is very beautiful and more acceptable. For experienced players, it is very special and can have a different experience.’’

The contrasting duality of beautiful roses against wicked thorns throughout the collection is breathtaking. It seems the perfect analogy for BDSM, as the designer notes, “roses are a typical example of the combination of love and pain”.

I chatted with Lindsay Goldwert, author of Bow Down: Lessons from Dominatrixes on How to Get Everything You Want, on the importance of BDSM gear like the Doll collection. Lindsay explains, “The gear is part of what makes BDSM so transgressive. The clinks of a metal chain, the feeling of rope around wrists, the intricate craftsmanship that goes into giving a piece of impact gear just the right amount of sensation. It makes an encounter feel very much out of the ordinary and can transport you into that headspace that sends you to the stars.”

Attention to Details

The craftsmanship behind the collection is a testament to quality, but with a certain romantic, old-world artisan element. Peter explained, “the thorns whip is one of the most difficult products we can make. This soft whip can’t be produced by machine, and can only be done by experienced craftsmen. Each individual thorn is picked out from the leather separately, which is very time consuming, but this process reflects the value of the product. When you use this soft whip with your partner, you will find it all worthwhile.”

In addition to the rose thorn whip, the Doll collection’s showstopper is the ruffled leather collar and cuffs set. The lucky submissive to wear this set will feel positively like royalty in the Elizabethan era-esque wide frilled collar. A perfect balance of strong and soft, the leather collar & cuff set is adorned with a gold rose thorn motif and feminine tulle ruffles. When I asked Lindsay Goldwert her thoughts on the collection she agreed saying, “It’s a nice mix of femme with a little edge.”

She also brilliantly suggested “I like how the cuffs can blend into one’s every day or night fashions without other people knowing that you’re experimenting with something daring.” But Zalo is ever practical about delivering pleasure to their customers. I was delighted that the set is as functional as it is beautiful. The set boasts reinforced gold hardware along with a removable clip and leash, leaving endless possibilities for play.

the Stand Out BDSM Accessory

The Rose Ball Gag. I can honestly say in all my varied experience with BDSM gear I have never seen a piece like this. Cased in a luxurious box with the rich red rose visible behind a clear window, the packaging reminded me of the rose behind glass in Beauty & the Beast. The ball gag has two options, a removable red rose or a ball with a hole through the center. The designer told me what it’s for, but I’ll your imagination run wild.

For customers just dipping their toes into bedroom accessories, the Rose Riding Crop is a no-brainer. Riding crops are a great entry point for those looking to add BDSM into their romantic encounters, as they require no real instruction and are more widely acceptable. As dominatrix-expert Goldwert explains, “Asking for what you want is empowering. Admitting a dark fantasy is very freeing.”

Balancing Beauty and Pain

If you aren’t asking for the rose riding crop yet, you’ll be begging for it as soon as you hold it in your hands. Cut from exquisite Italian leather, it’s delicate yet sturdy in the hand, with a beautiful leather rose adorning the end. Again, the balance of beauty and pain, feminine and masculine, is expertly executed.

“There’s something erotic and thoughtful to the black case with its red velvet lining. I can imagine someone feeling their stomach flutter upon opening the case, which is the whole point.” – Lindsay Goldwert.

Zalo’s craftsmen and designers create products with the finest materials, no expense or amount of time is spared in creating a luxurious, indulgent kink experience. For this reason, owner Peter explains his customers “are a group of people who have higher requirements for life. Sex is a very important part of their lives. For this, their requirements cannot be reduced.’’ It is apparent that the Zalo customer appreciates aesthetics and luxury above all. The packaging alone sells a luxury experience, the crop artfully encased in a blood red velvet pouch, and the cuffs expertly displayed in embossed black boxes as if they were jewelry.

Goldwert agrees: “There’s something erotic and thoughtful to the black case with its red velvet lining. I can imagine someone feeling their stomach flutter upon opening the case, which is the whole point. Someone who spends this much money on sexy accessories may want to make the receiver feel treasured.” The Doll collection would indeed make the receiver feel prized and cherished, the inspiration behind the namesake comes from the feeling of being treasured, like a child’s favorite doll.

I find myself grateful that BDSM culture has become more widely accepted and visible in the fashion and lingerie worlds. Starting conversation about it enables superior craftsmen like Zalo to create daring products there might not have previously been a market for. Zalo’s Doll collection is truly a treasure, a gift we are nearly not worthy of. I for one, cannot wait to see it cause a stir, be it in luxury lingerie boutique windows or in the sordid red rooms of a BDSM dungeon.
