the aesthetik for the ultra stylish dark individual

MARQUIS AMERICA recommends The Aesthetik, an awesome corsetry, simply beautiful.

Continuing our “Steampunk Goes Fetish” coverage, we feature some very special corsets from alt goth designer The Aesthetik.

The Reversible corset allows you to choose two fabrics, in keeping with the utilitarian Steampunk ethic: you can have pinstripe on one side and the wonderful Alexander Henry tattoo print on the other.

Another Steamy style is the V-Rivit corset, seen below;

vcorsetd1

 

The Men’s Corset is sharp and stylish, perfect for a night at the Gentleman’s Club.

 

corsetvestd1

 

The Peplum Corset Coat is the steamiest style of all, with potential to please both a uniform fetishist and a Neo-Victorian looking for a riding habit to wear on her Penny Farthing.

 

wcorsetcoatd4wcorsetcoatd3 

 

From the atelier of the Aesthetik comes this design philosophy:

I love my Goth roots, my black weeping willow.  As with my cultural heritage I am not strictly bound by those social rules.  There are only so many “Romantic Goth” or tight PVC club outfits one can design before it all looks alike.  The gothic wardrobe is not just club wear.  I design for the Epicurean Goth, to them it is a lifestyle.  My customer requires a broader range of options as a goth or alt. lifestyle individual.  There will not be the need to run home and change because three other people are wearing the same outfit. What one liked as a “baby bat” – the nylon Halloween cape with red lining – may not be what you wear now – floor sweeping opera coat with feather delecatage.  The Aesthetik offers an evolution of gothic design from the “Gothling” in high school, wearing Hot Topic, to the  “Sophisto-Goth”.  Welcome home you ultra stylish dark individual; we embrace you.

corsetry asylum 7 does not follow the pack

birdcage_by_p3t3r_kurt3n_groupi3MARQUIS AMERICA recommends Asylum 7 corsetry. Fabulous design, highest quality and lots of love in design and manufacturing.

 

 

 

Since its launch in Australia back in 1998, ASYLUM 7 has been committed to providing exciting, unique, and most importantly affordable corsetry.
Owner Suzanne McRae has been involved with both theatre costume production and clothing design for many years, and the result of these experiences is ASYLUM 7.
Many of the designs created by ASYLUM 7 will not be seen anywhere else, and they are proud to say that they do not follow the pack!  smiles
The materials used in ASYLUM 7 clothing are of high quality, with the items themselves constructed to withstand long-term wear. All nickel plated boot eyelets and studs are reinforced with metal washers to prevent damage of fabric. The corset boning used is strong heavyweight plastic, which is extremely supportive and durable. We do not use thin, lightweight, easily bent plastic in any designs. All corset lining is soft satin, which can also be customised in any colour upon request. To interface our corsets we use the heaviest cotton drill we can find in double layers for strength, plus gauze interfacing on eyelet panels. You can request extra interfacing for weight at an additional charge.
A bird-cage and bustle-cage have enough similarities to naturally fall in together as ingredients in an image, which is what they did by coincidence. This shoot was done inside a kindling room within an abandoned Victorian asylum, and the derelict state of the walls and interior helped with perfect textures and mood.
 
where_did_i_put_my_lunch__by_electric_ice1The underbust cotton corset is simply a central point of focus between the bustle skirt and stained blouse which both hold all the visual impact of the outfit.

 

Fashion is quite unimportant in the scheme of things. The bigger picture doesn’t need trends and new sleeves every season. If a person loses a parent or has to bury their dog, they don’t give a brass razoo what colour the new black is.
In general, Asylum 7 doesn’t care either.

It gets a bit excited about an accidental placing of garnet velvet against a scrap of old leather… or a few pearls settling near some shredded lace…. but that shiver of thrill is a selfish thing and who can be bothered with whatever the look is this year?

There’s so much more to see when you watch tiny things for a long time.

We are just caretakers of stuff, and it will long outlive us and our bumbling around. In the meantime, we love to love the things that might be overlooked.
