LOVE Spring 2014 has this amazing feature styled by Anders Sølvsten Thomsen, photographed by Juergen Teller and modelled by Lily McMenamy who is wearing the classic House of Harlot GINA Latex Rubber Stockings. Beautiful….and very, very stylish.
The 2014 Balenciaga Collection features the Latex & Knit pieces that the the team at House of Harlot have produced for the fantastic Balenciaga team in these innovative and stylish Knit bonded with Latex Rubber outfits, a mix that was mistaken by many for embossed patent leather.
These looks caused quite a stir in Paris and we were thrilled to be able to work on them. VOGUE reported that ’Knit was molded and sculpted to arc and flow around the body, slicked with latex (Wang revealed it had to be massaged in by hand, otherwise it would run like a bad paint—or nail—job)….’.
Huge thanks to everyone at Balenciaga, this was a fab project and they provided us with cakes too…..brilliant!
“The inspiration for the collection started with stories from Japanese folklore, it spread then to demons and legends, hence the outfits’ names.
There is a dark and magic side to the latex material that suits those imaginary creatures and I felt would suit our clientele as well. I loved especially the tale of Jorogumo, the spider that can change its appearance into that of a seductive woman. I wanted to experiment with capes and shapes that would suit the witch-woman I had in mind. All of it in latex rubber, naturally, and suitable for party.” Florence Druart
