As thematic trends dip in and out from season to season, one of the most fascinating things is seeing how different creative minds go about interpreting them. With a rookery of strict black and white outfits from various designers turning the fetish-in-fashion trend from spiked and studded to Helmet Newton-esque, this season it’s all about the balance of liberation and restraint.
A new take on the theme is brought to us by photographer Koray Parlak, shooting models Nina Reijnders and Victoria Lipatova for the December 2011 issue of Marie Claire Turkey. While the styling by Hakan Ozturk adheres, with brilliant effect, to the gasping corsetry, structured forms, and leather-meets-lace ideals of fetish as fashion sees it right now, Parlak’s photography doesn’t comply with the draw to be dark and shadowy. Instead, Parlak’s shots are as vibrant and sumptuous as the surrounding locations.
