Subtle bondage undertones and defined silhouettes evoke a sense of refinement, accentuating the style of the individual wearer. This season it was a great opportunity for me to take people who I love and respect and wear, and have them integrate what they do into my vision.”
And that vision was one of “Moonbathers.” Looking to night imagery having to do with moonlight glimmering across a body of water — a darkness befitting a brand rooted in leather harnesses — the designer sent out looks focused on using her leather accessories as apparel. “It’s an accessories-based collection,” Bayne clarified. “Our goal is to blur the lines between accessories and clothing, so we’re always going to push the leather a little bit further.”
