With the usual glut of summer movies upon us I have a tendency to not only look at movie trailers and advertisements, but what might tickle my fetish fashion interests as well. God knows Johnny Depp looks as cool as ever in his pirate garb in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and while his lace, scarves and boots are eye-catching, it’s not anything that I would ever consider fetish fashion. If you recall Tron from December and Von Gutenburg #4 built around the theme, I found that movie had more of its share of tight shiny outfits that fit our aesthetic. This summer we might have to mine a little further afield to find outfits or looks that could even be considered even on the edge of kinky.
X-Men: First Class is probably our best bet for skin-tight shiny suits. As with Tron sci-fi/comic book movies often answer our ache for good fetish fashion and this movie, which concerns the early days of the famous mutants, looks like it will deliver for us fetish fashion fans. Green Lantern is another of this summer’s comic book offerings and though the suit Ryan Reynolds wears as the superhero is kind of neat (and green) I’m not sure were going to get a lot of variety here; at least with X-Men there are a bunch of mutants so we can hope for a variation-slight though it might be-on the costumes.
We’ll be seeing the last of ole Harry Potter in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II, a movie always good for some long dark robes and a ripped taffeta dress or two and Transformers: Dark of the Moon, good for all of us into metal-on-metal.
God knows here at VG we personally have enough clothes to keep us happy-have a look around in our store, www.vongutenbergcouture.com you might just find something to your liking-so I don’t really have to rely on the movies. But it is nice from time to time to be entertained by a film as much as be tickled by the outfits the characters wear.
