As latex becomes more popular, attracts increased media attention and expands to the high street through fashion outlets like House of CB and ASOS, the Internet’s assembled fashion bloggers can not help but sit up and take notice. It’s their job! I’ve previously shared videos of Toni Duclottni and Arika Sato trying on latex from House of CB via their fashion channels, here and here. But what of other bloggers?
Vanessa Pur is a German blogger who is keen on bold, striking and sexy materials, so expect lots of leather, vinyl and – of course – a sprinkling of latex from her videos. They’re German language only, but they are largely unspoken ‘lookbooks’ in any case.
What I really like about her channel is how she combines these materials with other fabrics and textures to create an eye-catching yet wearable look. A more subtle use of latex, which shows it can be worn as an everyday item of edgy, fashionable clothing to go alongside the head-to-toe latex dress more suited to that special night out.
Find more latex looks on her channel pureGLAM.tv here. It would certainly be nice to understand her thoughts on wearing these outfits too, so let’s hope she models some latex for her new English-language channel !
