I don’t particularly care for the background in this picture, but I love how it displays the leather corset and cowl/collar-piece by Antiseptic Fashion; it shows up all the details wonderfully, the tortured textures and sinuous shapes and asymmetrical lines, looking like hammered metal, some ungodly-beautiful combination of medieval armor and the modern avant-garde. Absolutely stunning designs in my opinion.
Found on the Tumblr circuits. I have no idea who the fashion designer is, or any of the other people involved, but I love this avant-garde, alien-warrior-like look.

I’m probably the last person to blog about this since it’s made the blogosphere rounds, but I thought I would anyway, just for the record. This is Una Burke‘s “medical armor,” a conceptual collection of artwear inspired by prosthetic devices and medical braces and the process of healing from trauma, titled Re.Treat. The warrior-like body armor is reminiscent of medical corsetry, and also of wearing human flesh as a shield against psychological harm. The means of protection also become a means of entrapment, binding the body tightly. She cites a few of her influences as Hans Bellmer, Alexander McQueen, and Erwin Olaf. On her Website she states the pieces were made from “undyed vegetable-tanned leather which is reminiscent of Caucasian flesh” – I couldn’t help finding that last part a little funny.
See the complete collection here.
