Pendu – “Post Fetish” elegance

Todd Pendu Zana Bayne “Magnum Opus” Collection SS14

dievca ran into a collection of leather goods from Todd Pendu & Zana Bayne called, “Magnum Opus” SS14.  she purchased two items: a bracelet and a necklace which she modified slightly to make it a leather collar. How? she added holes at the buckles to tighten it and removed the attached triangle piece so Master could attach His lead.

The term “Post-Fetish” was coined by Todd Pendu as “decontextualizing traditional fetish gear into aesthetic accessories to be incorporated into everyday wear”.

Originally, dievca was focused on the person in the co-collaboration whose name was on the worked leather, Zana Bayne. But, she starting looking deeper into the gorgeous work of co-Creative Director, Todd Pendu after viewing some of his photographs.

I am a self-described ‘Duchampian Punk’ and a proponent for Libertine Culture. I work independently outside the Establishment. My art doesn’t always fit in to convenient aesthetic categories. I’m interested in personal freedom and expression. I do what I want. I create for those outside society – for those who live by their own rules – not for everyone, but for everyone else.” – Todd Pendu

A Collar for Christmas: Eddie Borgo

dievca’s first post: “Eddie Borgo creates beauty for the submissive” was offering a cuff as an elegant solution for a submissive to wear in the pre- 50 Shades of Grey World. Wearing something symbolizing BDSM was an edgy choice and trying to find something subtle, yet elegant was hard.

Times have changed in the 5+ years and now BDSM clothing and jewelry options have expanded. The BDSM flavor has been on many runways and in various collections. Now, it is easier to find elegant BDSM pieces and easier to wear leather collars, o-rings, chains, etc. in public.

That doesn’t mean an elegant, yet direct BDSM reference jewelry piece is no longer sought out. One of the first jewelry designers offering a BDSM edge was Eddie Borgo and this thicker collar came out in 2015. The collar is still gorgeous to wear, either symbolizing your submission – or not.

And helping the Homeless of NYC via an auction is not a bad thing, too.

scratching my head

What do you think?
This phrase on a T-shirt or Sweater really doesn’t make dievca feel comfortable…..the translation is slang – “I don’t really give a f*ck.”  Both from Zadig & Voltaire.
Both a relatively expensive…hmmm~

And something similar in English from Ashley Williams….

Are they statements that someone wants to wear on their chests?  What does it mean when you state that you don’t care? What don’t you care about?
Humanity, the World, Life?

dievca is just confused…

 


And sometimes you run across…..weird Lingerie


Not sure there are Words~


You have me tied up in….knots

dievca was fascinated by this Gucci Rope Knot Bracelet – Gold on Sterling Silver:

Which brought on a fun internet viewing session:

Georg Jensen Loveknot Cuff Sterling Silver $295


Manon Knot Rings in 14K White or Yellow Gold

JC Penney 18K over Sterling Silver delicate knot bangles – three

J.W. Anderson F/W 2018 knot earrings

And dievca went with:

Sterling Silver Knot Cuff Bracelet – Housing Works

Why does she feel like knots are a Summer or beachy piece? Maybe because Master isn’t in to Shibari/Ropework and it seems like a “boating” thing. Hmmm~

If I tell you, YOUR fantasies
will you tell me, MINE?

 


Looking for “office risqué”….


dievca is interpreting that as beautiful suiting cut in a sexually suggestive way.
Your take?
