Ponystep1 So the Boombox maestro has launched Ponystep.com and I was gutted that I missed the launch party on Sunday…   Just as I predicted, the site conveys a different and unique point of view on the fashion talent in London and despite only being about two days old, there‚Äôs a fair few fashion features up already.  Some names are comfortingly familiar, others not so, which means I‚Äôll have to add another URL to the favourites list…

I know Fleet Ilya‚Äôs work but not the name so it‚Äôs good that Ponystep have highlighted the man behind the sex-inspired leather totes, accessories, headgear and outfit ‚Äòprops‚Äô that have graced the bods of Kylie Minogue and Roisin Murphy (is it a little insane that I‚Äôve dreamt about emailing Roisin‚Äôs record company with a gushing list of designers that I think Roisin should pull in for a 40-outfit change gig and then going to the gig itself to witness the splendour…yes, I think so…).  I‚Äôve thought about harnessing up several times if I found the right structure because over something floaty and soft, it‚Äôs a useful prop to have.  I think Fleet does a few different ranges that are available in shops or via private bespoke order, but a few of his pieces are available to buy online at Coco de Mer.  His later collections will be full of patent and brass, two things that of course get my vote so we‚Äôll see whether there will be some Susie Bubble harness action going on…

    i wanted the harness for so long but it cost like 200 over quid which i think is waaaaaaay ridiculous. 🙁 Any cheaper substitutes around?

  2. Really amazing : I love whan fashion meets art like that !

  4. Sabrina says:

    This is so much cooler than a wide belt!

  5. miss woo says:

    The first belt looks surprisngly easy to wear, on the side of fetish gear, but not overtly so.

  6. N says:

    God, that model is thin.
    Not my thing, but interesting!

  7. headmistress says:

    I love the bondagey feel of these… the harness is gorgeous. their snout masky thing too is intriguing. woe for my penniless pockets!

    i went, you missed nothing. it was terrible despite the copious free alcohol on offer. empty with no atmosphere.

    Very…ummm…bondage?
    Seriously tho’ Susie, I totally loved the post with your own photo’s where you wrote the tag labels. Your writing on the tags was poetic and very, very hip…but mainly poetic. I would love to see more posts like that from you. You have a talent with words that really came out on the tags. The tags were short…but special…dunno, I think there’s something there. Keep up the fabulous work, you are simply lovely….and extremely talented.

    Susie: Have you seen this great photo of you on Cafe Mode: http://blogs.lexpress.fr/cafe-mode/2008/04/sur_la_plage_de_hyeres.html

    I immediately pictured these harnesses over a ridiculously pouffy dress, just holding it all down. Lovely.

  14. i am a fan. a fan. a fan.

  15. Angela says:

    I don’t like them. The model is so thin and a little bit ugly.

  16. fashiontoast says:

    Love how the first one looks like such a continuation of the dress.

  17. susie_bubble says:

    Hmm…mixed opinions…and yes, the model is skinny. A pity that the products have to be photographed this way…

  18. Lorraine Williams says:

    great stuff! i have seen his other lines too, does amazing bags and belts.

  19. lady coveted says:

    i think rosilin murphy would be delighted to see your list…
    these pics are insane! i’m just amazed how they fit so well around this model…

  20. Sarah says:

    They look less clich√©d “fetish” to me and more like antique medical devices – of course some people find *those* a turn-on too…
