At one time it woud have been unheard of: the categories ‘Instruments Of Pleasure’ and ‘Ready-To-Wear’ sitting alongside eachother in the same website menu. But sites like Pleasurements are testament to the fact that all that has changed. You can buy your new season swimwear at the same place you buy your whips and paddles, pick up a couture latex dress along with your regular bras and briefs, all the while getting to decide whether to keep your leather harness for the bedroom or wear it out to a party. Fashion has embraced its erotic side, and
blurred demolished a few boundary lines in the process.
Guilty Pleasure, a new shoot by Liselotte Schuppers for Pleasurements, revels yet again in the blurred space. Ashley Veraart’s styling mixes boudoir and ready to wear, high street and couture, leather, latex and lace, to create that wondrous uncertainty of is it underwear, or outerwear?
With hair and makeup by Maaike Beijer, you can view the full shoot for Pleasurements (pleasurements.com) by clicking on the gallery.
