One of the things I like about the fetish world is when severity and seriousness verges on artfulness and ultimately gives way to what can only be called batshit insanity. English/German magazine Marquis (formerly «O») is a glossy production in every way imaginable, from the paper stock to the layout to the latex and leather fashions it showcases. In the Id Unleashed universe of fetish publications, there's a mish-mash of cultural references, such as the rubber-clad Louise Brooks lookalike above, created by artist Marcus Gray. Gray is described in the pages of Marquis as a retro-futurist--thanks, I'll take THIS flavor of retro-futurism over the busted up clock parts favored by the current Steampunk trend.
Speaking of retro-futurism, I can't help but think that this mid-70s ad showcasing designs from latex atelier Sealwear is making pal of the Empire Yum Yum's eyes turn into big cartoon hearts. THIS is some Radioactive Lingerie right here!
Then there's the stuff I'm not even going to try to explain, like this Spiderman girl catsuit and hood created by a designer who goes by the single name of Gosha. He's pretty clearly some sort of twisted genius, and whether or not this is truly meant to tickle the nethers is irrelevant--there's no denying its awesome weirdness and wonderfulness.
