‘Fuck Me’ – Karlie Kloss (video)

There aren’t too many ways of being polite in this post. So if you’re offended by the four-letter F word, apologies for the title and a recommendation to move along are coming your way. For everyone else, comes the fashion fetish film Fuck Me featuring model Karlie Kloss and directed by Ruth Hogben.

The Sapphic romance: no longer taboo

This is the place where fashion and erotica meet. A place that’s become more nebulous in its definition, more open in it’s acceptance of new ideas. An independent magazine like Bambi is most at home in these blurry places, places where rules only decide what’s good enough to make the cut; not what’s acceptable enough for society to see. Pino Leone’s shoot for Bambi’s latest…

Agent Provocateur channel vintage erotica

Gone is the dark high-gloss imagery: for their latest campaign, Agent Provocateur are channelling the ’70s. With sensual French actress Mylene Jampanoi in the starring role, the campaign takes its inspiration from the erotic imagery of David Hamilton as well as erotic films Emmanuelle and The Story of O. Hence the soft, hazy light, the retro cane chairs, the sapphic innuendo.

For the love of shoes

The theme of dominant/submissive – whether Sapphic or otherwise – is commonplace enough that it doesn’t shock or create controversy. But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a good shoe fetish shoot when we see one. Featuring Anne Vyalitsyna, this editorial by Giampaolo Sgura is all about the kind of statement heels that don’t just compliment an outfit but positively make it.

Girl as boy, girl as girl

Some common threads of themes can be revisited and reinvented time and again: if done right, we’ll always be drawn to take notice. Here’s one you know: girl as boy seduces girl as girl. It’s the intrigue of a Sapphic theme magnified by the alluring confusion of androgyny. Akiss Paraskevopoulos‘ new take on the timeless plot forgoes the lingerie and lace stockings that are often…

Amber Heard: weekend distraction

So typical is this shoot of Ellen von Unwerth’s style that at first I was unsure if I’d seen it before. Apparently not: apparently this exploration of sapphic fetishism is a new editorial from the fall 2011 issue of Vs Magazine. In many ways, it’s a successful formula for von Unwerth so why break it? Titled Amber vs Amber, the titular model is Amber Heard,…

Lingerie and deadly kisses: weekend watch

A film made for fashion doesn’t necessarily have to follow a linear story. It can be about mood and visuals and general intrigue – as this one is. Made by Daniel Deville for Kiss Me Deadly lingerie, it’s the kind of video that’s enigmatic enough to draw you in and keep you watching, even though the themes of ritual, domination and sapphic sensuality come in…

Selling perfume with sex

You can’t help but recognise that this is a path Tom Ford paved. Who else has been so successful at building an association between a humble perfume bottle and pure, unadulterated sex? Like Ford’s strategically placed fragrance bottles, which have found themselves intimately close to the most private parts of the female body, this shoot from LOVESEXDANCE solves the problem of selling fragrance without the…

The return of the sapphic

There was a period a few years ago where all things sapphic seemed to consume. It’s hard to say what drove it, but if I had to wager I’d say it was driven by the vocal young as opposed to the money-spinning media, with plenty a girl willing to comment how they’d turn for a particular model in much the same way that a desire…

Going on a Tangent

It’s a man’s world. Or so says Tangent Magazine by way of the headline and masculine styling of one of their seventh edition’s photo shoots. As new media titles are wont to do, it’s a photo shoot that draws heavily from the nudity and fashion fusion, offering up much of the raw edge that has largely been replaced by emotive erotica elsewhere.
