Going Hell-For-Leather.

November 16, 2009
I know it may seem like this blog is re-defining itself as an online haven for fetishwear what with all the mentions and desiring of leather but it’s actually just the way the wardrobe’s gone these past few weeks (leather…not fetishwear, sorry to disappoint Lynn & Horst lovers…). Just recently I’ve extended my collection with the aid of exceedingly chic vodka purveyors, Absolut, and the homme section of Zara.
Me and gloves haven’t ever really hit it off. Either I’m too cheap/just not that into them, or the ones I like play hard to get by being stocked exclusively online. Whatever. This season’s offering is not only better-looking but much moreer…affordable. They fit well, are 100%, and at the approx. price of €25 they’re not going to leave your wallet as empty as Vlada Roslyakova’s stomach.

Just in case (and granted, this is very probable) you’re thinking this is all a little obsessive to be healthy, as Calvin Harris crooned, I’m not alone, since Absolut have gone all leathery (in the best possible sense) this season. To celebrate the launch of their new limited edition vodka, Absolut Rock, they v. sweetly forwarded a biker-jacket-bedecked bottle my way. Know this, as a student blogger this is without doubt the most prized freebie I’ve ever received. The encasing-design is by La Cambre-grad and acclaimed jewelry designer Natalia Brilli. The vodka is superb and guarantees unadulterated elation – see below…

Note: If the casing looks empty then that’s because it is. Vodka’s gone, bottle’s gone – we had a good night overall.

    HAHA I got a little worried when I saw the pics…Ann Summers much?! I love the Absolute bottles – i prefer Stoli but they win hands down on design : ) x

    gotta love the studded black leather, and the fact that it has vodka inside is fantastically brilliant! i need to get my hands on a bottle of the sort!
