Latex corsets and dresses have long spread widely beyond the fetish section. A proof for that fact is given by the dutch fashion label Lady Oops, whose designer Mariette Hendriks sets value on detailed-decorated designs. Moreover, the latest issue of latex-fashion-magazine MARQUIS talks about the designer, who even brought up her ideas in Berlin. Unfortunately I had to wait with the article until the latest photos of photographer Peter Czernich were taken, even though I was so curious about it, because Lady Oops latex fashion contains the classical elements of the fifties. Pin-up, Rockabilliy and Neo Burlesque are the inspirational resources, that have been connected with the love for the shining material since 1997. Cute bows, quillings, polka dots, chequerboard patterns and printed lace decorations are the characteristics of the latest collection of Lady Oops Fashion. Combined with skintight cuts, the knee-length or boldly-short pieces caress the femininity of the women wearing them – and become the perfect eye catcher.
After searching through the website, one can clearly see the development oft he idea, that lies behind the label. As usual, the beginning of such an idea is shows rudimental traces, which does not mean, that I don’t like the earlier pieces. But the fine difference lies in the details and in the fact, that all dresses, skirts and tops are handmade and of course tailor made. Realizing that, the current prices for the couture of Lady Oops are justified and compared to those of any any cheap piece from China they even seem relatively low. However, I soon will present you a label from China to put an end to some prejudices. You should be excited for that.. I am 🙂
And then, there is a sparkling detail, that has to be mentioned. I have already presented some latex designers who combined lace with latex and some, that involved tulle in their creations, but I’ve never seen Swarovski stones on such a piece. Of course, I don’t really know about the fragility of the small stones. Often enough, I’ve lost some of them, but the idea of combining that shining material with the sparkling gems is just brilliant.
