Stella Tennant channels Ethel Granger (Guiness Book world record holder for the smallest waist) for this shoot by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia. I would also like to give props to  Animal New York for publishing this under the heading “High Fashion Planking”. More after the beep.

Hubert Barrere’s “Corset”

Pretty things from french corsetmaker Hubert Barrere and art critic Charles-Arthur Boyer’s “Corset ” (French edition only available at Amazon as far as I can see), a new history of the ubiquitous undergarments featuring plenty of photos of Barrere’s signature pieces.

Corset Update

I found this look over on Lookbook.nu. What a genius way to incorporate your favorite corset with the season’s drapey, layered tops!

Looking Sharp

This Gwar-worthy corset is from from New York’s The Blonds (you may remember them for the syringe corset they designed for the SAW blood drive). The photo is from this month’s i-D magazine.


Anthracite uses the words “decadence, hedonism, foul language, chrome & junk, disposable boys, exoskeletons, and colossal coil springs” to describe themselves, just to name a few, and that sits well with me. Their shop is full of corsets, utility belts, and ponytails, so get your Black Friday on.

Foxy Man

Nadia from The Foxy Man recently posted images of her designs, as shot by Saskia Wilson.  I believe the pieces were designed for her university finals, and I do hope to see more of her work in her future.
