Mixing a bit of bondage into your Friday night outfit is nothing new for many of us, but a new crop of female designers are bringing the dungeon-inspired trend straight to everyday wear. Creating collections that are femme positive but still edgy enough to feel risqué, they’re reworking latex, pony saddles, and collars for the every woman, making wearing BDSM to brunch a thing.

ZANA BAYNE

 Zana Bayne started making custom leather harnesses for the New York club scene before creating exclusive pieces for Dover Street Market and outfitting Queen Bey for her Formation tour. This fall, her S&M inspired pieces hit the mainstream, with a custom line for H&M darling & Other Stories.

Inspired by ’80s Madonna and Nobuyoshi Araki, Creepyyeha re-imagines fetish underwear in baby pink, models them on her Instagram, and counts FKA twigs as a fan.

Former designer for Coco De Mer and Agent Provocateur,  Lulu Loveday mixes leather with French lace in her lingerie designs. The brands ‘Boudoir’ line takes ‘matching underwear’ to the next level with coordinating bedspreads, pillow cases, kimonos, and blindfolds for every look.

Berlin-based store DSTM, is a must visit for Berghain-appropriate sheer body stockings and PVC bra-tops. The designers, Canadian-born Jen Gilpin and her photographer husband Maxime Ballesteros, embody the brand’s sexy-but-cool aesthetic. We love the hand-woven leather strap harness worn over a simple white tee.
