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

Zana Bayne: Beautiful Bondage

Blurring the lines between accessories and clothing, Zana Bayne‘s luxe, artisanal leather goods infuse a haute-couture aesthetic with provocative, bondage-influenced undertones. Known for their defined silhouettes and striking shapes, Bayne’s designs play on the lines of the body, refining and accentuating the wearer’s individual style.

Here, Bayne handcrafts a sleek harness from rich strips of rivet-reinforced leather, in a wickedly playful arrangement inspired by occult symbolism and enneagram formations. Although originally intended to be worn with the design on the back, the harness also effortlessly works reversed. Gleaming silvertone hardware punctuates the look.

The pieces that dievca own are a collaboration with PENDU x Zana Bayne — a collar and cuff in red. she has presented to Master in them with a white Goddess maxi dress and worn them on the street with a black maxi dress.

The “Magnum Opus” Capsule Collection collaboration from PENDV x Zana Bayne 2014 is comprised of a series of leather works conceptually devised by the duo based on a symbol designed by Todd Pendu and then constructed by Zana Bayne. The base image from which all of these products are derived is a stylized re-imagining of the inverted symbol of Sulphur that has been used to signify accomplishment of the “Great Work (Magnum Opus)” in Alchemy and is also connected in shape to the Tarot card known as “The Hanged-Man” or in French as “Le Pendu”
