TrendWatch: Fashion Bondage by Fleet Ilya

For this TrendWatch we are focusing on a designer: Fleet Ilya and a actual trend: Fashion Bondage. Lately Fleet Ilya has been getting a lot of hype and exposure in the UK, the Central Saint Martins graphic design graduate developed what is widely regarded as her signature line: Restraint – a collection of hand-crafted luxury accessories for the sexually playful.

Resha Sharma his creative partner (and wife) is applying her knowledge of fashion, image making and art direction to blur the line between leather bondage and fashion accessories.

For the Fashion Bondage Trend, we’ve been knowing about this trend since we did our first review in 2009 on the delightful lingerie collection Bordelle, the recent Hasan Hejazi collection and the S&M style shoes by Aoi Kotsuhiroi, do you feel this trend coming to the general public as well?
