LEATHER TRENDS- Working at Kinx has allowed me the opportunity to explore the trends in the leather scene both locally and internationally. Leather Fetish wear is fast becoming a fashion statement of trend setters around the globe. Gone are days were Leather Fetish wear was looked down upon, instead it’s become synonymous with fashion. I was trying to understand the history behind the leather scene and stumbled upon an informative website called http://www.cuirmale.nl/history/early.htm. This website took me through the early days of leather when people used animal skin to protect themselves following through to English Rockers, Leather in Pop Music to Leather in Cinema’s. Leather wear is so evident in today‘s fashion runways, from New York to Paris. Musicians such as Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and South African based Jamali have brought back the fetish into leather. Being able to make someone feel sexy while feeling intrinsically comfortable is the art of Leather Fetish wear. So what’s new you may ask…lines, simplicity, straps, studs, fetish with a touch of class and naughtiness.
