'Austere, not austerity' - a 19th century obsession with female hysteria. Something buttoned up, but at the same time something completely wild lurking underneath. High collared white shirting - hinting at the evolution of the shirtwaister from fitted blouses at the end of the 19th century to 50's dresses - with a shock of flesh in places. Hinting at the multi-layered corsetry of the Edwardian era, waist-clinchers feature heavily throughout the collection. Expertly cut Lambskin leather sexualises conservative silhouettes. Swiss Lace and heavy Brocade - distresses, worn frayed - emphasise a feeling of decadent luxury, Acid stripped Peacock feathers, dyed black, together with Goat fur used extensively throughout, are two of the emblems of sexual wildness overtaking primness in the collection.
