When the styling product at your disposal includes luxury lingerie brands like Bordelle, Nichole de Carle, Obey My Demand and Paul Seville, not to mention a kitty of whips, chains and leather harnesses, you’re inevitably going to go down the sexy and fetishist path. The question is really just how, and for photographer Richard Monsieurs – using product from Netherlands-based boutique Pleasurements – the best way to make the accessories the focus of the shoot was to keep to a slick studio backdrop.
And, in some colour and some crisp black and white, accentuate the accessories Monsieurs’ shoot does. The selection of wares is the type of lingerie that sits between luxurious and mildly unconventional, never without an extra bit of strapping or studding, lacing or leather, some detail that shows the wearer means business.
With strong poses by model Lotte Uvt and beauty looks by Berbe Reugebrink, it’s a shoot striking for both the product and the photography. You can view it in full at the gallery above.
