Guest Post: F is for Fetish

          With Fetish looking set to be Autumn/Winter’s most influential trend, we thought we would get a fashion head start and take a trip to the dark side and take a look at our plethora of designer jewelry.

Of course fetish is nothing new, but the popularity of its latest re-vamp has skyrocketed since the endorsement of Lady Gaga, Rihanna and of course recent CFDA winner Marc Jacobs, whose entire runways were swathed in fashionista fetish get-up.
 When it comes to 2011/2012 fetish, think more Park Avenue Princess than Soho Siren as leather, rubber and Perspex become your new best friends. From leather tote handbags, designer cuff bracelets to even leather designer belts, this season, it’s all about going for bold. Of course one of the things that excites us so much about this trend is the unique, off-the-beaten-track and personal nature of it which of course is what is all about. A trend sure not to be championed by every Francine Fashionista. this is one of the easiest ways this winter to mark your individuality and stand out for your unique and personal fashion interpretation.

Making their way to the top of our ‘must-have’ fetish list is Michelle Lowe-Holder and her large leather cuff. Hailing from the UK, Michelle’s pieces are truly one of a kind, using antique and vintage material that is mostly ethically or sustainably produced.

The thing that we love most about BRAI Jewelry’s designs is that the patterns are not just patterns, they are in fact braille. Stumbling one day across a braille covered medical packet, designer Claire Naa found herself intrigued with its beauty and graphic charm, making her Alphabet bracelet for women, made with leather and steel, just the fetish ticket.

And the fun doesn’t stop there either with Boticca’s medley of fun, frivolous and above all fetish inspired treats available here.
