Charli XCX is another performer with a liking for latex, but with a difference.
Forget the figure hugging and often revealing low-cut dresses favoured at the parties and red carpets: Charli eschews the glamorous gowns and adopts a style of her own when it comes to latex, wearing a looser, urban style befitting her pop-with-attitude identity.

The above photos feature Charli in clothing by Hanger Inc. Hanger’s designs specialise in an oversized style of latex that can be mixed and matched with other fabrics. Being one of the recipients of the ASOS fashion discovery award, you can expect to hear more about this up and coming designer.

The two looks above are courtesy of Meat Clothing. The style of this brand is gritty and rebellious, making no attempt to occupy the same niche as the luxuriant latex couturiers. Even the brand name ‘Meat’ is like a middle finger in your face. There is much talk of latex spreading into the fashion domain where previously it belonged uniquely to fetish. But fashion itself contains a myriad of styles, and it’s great to see latex brands like Hanger and Meat showing the versatility and variety offered by the material.
