louis loves latex

My what lovely latex you have...


[and this is but a sampling]

Eeek. Do not attempt unless your name is Du Juan, and you are a 6 ft Asian supermodel. Though not a fan of fetish garb as outerwear, I must say the bright latex does make for a cool effect. Perhaps not the most practical apparel... it must take a long time to peel that plastic off!

From "City Slickers", the Vuitton shoot by Mert and Marcus. Featured in W magazine Aug/06.

I could never wear that. It doesn't even look good in the gym...

I love the way you always pick up great information I would miss without you. Those pictures are great, although they owe everything to Bourdin.

I agree geraldine, they're very Bourdin. I love the colors and the sleek effect but it looks a bit "trashy" at the same time.

Who knew an empty pool could look so awesome?! I love this shoot!!

Love the use of color - not sure what I think though - it felt uncomfortable for me to look at.

Liz said...

I actually rather like them. I think if you had the legs to carry them off they could look good.

I am sure a Grito on the picture would make a delicious counterpoint

Wow thats so sexual! :O I wonder is that the paint on kind? because its so tight. That would make a great ad! :D

These remind me of that Louis Jourdan shoe campaign eons ago..brilliant use of color.

I thought I hated Louis Vuitton until I saw these pictures...This shoot is totally amazing, and much more fun than typical 10 inch fetish platform shoes. *shudders*

trashy might be a value for some. I think it appeals to an "inclusive" way of style. I love the furry -felt- bag.
