Leather corsets, cuffs, graceful Amazonian warrior curves and elegant femininity – this is the work of Alexandra Fuks.
Combining leather and couture in ways that highlight the feminine form while showcasing its strength, pieces are at times catwalk and at other times everyday – for those of us who dare.
With her new online store making creations available to all of us drooling fans, some elements of her work breathe a similar breath to leather experts Seville & Aman– although their masculinity shines apparent when held up to compare against the sleek catlike curves of Alexandra Fuks creations.
Inspired by greek mythology and the warrior woman, all pieces are perfect for photoshoots and for those in creative industries they are truly great impact and styling items with huge versatility (especially the demi-cup! Can you imagine?)
In fun colours similar to Creepy Yeha‘s pastel blues and pinks, there is a feeling of the softness of roses and the sublime softness of feminine skin amongst the leather. Fluffy skirts adorn the leather bodices of couture dresses, or there are stand alone corsets that can be worn as tops or over a singlet or simple white blouse for the perfect alternative to a leather autumn/winter waistcoat.
With the online shops recent launch and a whole collection of multi-coloured cuffs, collars and other easy mix and match accessories available to purchase online, it will be exciting to see what creative directions and offerings lay in store for the year ahead.
I for one will be keeping a close eye on their delightful designs to see what new adventures Alexandra Fuks gets up to. Stay tuned!
