Monsieur Gris

Tapping into all things 50 Shades you would expect the latest offerings for AW2015 to be heavy on the leather and lace…body (and bondage) conscious to the extreme;  a femme fatale in all her glory.

Put away your riding crops. Designers tapping into this Cultural zeitgeist have taken female empowerment to the opposite end of the body-con spectrum.
