MA Practice Two - Fleet Iyla


Sourced From: http://www.fleetilya.com

Fleet Ilya are a high end luxury leather accessories brand, their most recent collection is heavily structured. The bags are a usual shape although leather cut outs are added over the top of the shape almost like a cage to add depth and an element of weight and luxury.

The way the bags are constructed are very neat and the structures are flush to the surface of the bags, they frame and contain each piece perfectly. Some of the accessories have elements that are far more structural and almost like armour, similarly to Una Burkes forms.

These pieces are almost like a bag with an added accessory. Perhaps this is something I could consider to incorporate more structure and texture within my designs. By using hardware and studs, each piece is cleverly jointed together without using stitching.

The collection of accessories moves quickly into fetish wear and garments with similar structures and inspirations as the bags. I noticed that the structures make the bags are very bold, strong and 'amour-like', although the way that some of the lingerie is photographed it appears very intimate, delicate and innocent. For example the way this campaign is shot, there is a contrasting 'submissive' mood, in comparison to the concept for the garments and lingerie. Perhaps I could consider my designs and the way they will fit on the body, not to create garments but to integrate the shapes into a successful wearable piece of artwork.
