Leather Harness

Spring 2011 - Photography: Char Alfonzo / Styling: Cameron Cooper / Hair: Wesley O'Meara / Makeup: Aya Komatsu 

All strapped up, but she ain't no Catwoman. When non-superheros look to spruce up an outfit, I would assume they may reach for a belt, a scarf or pile upon pile of jewellery pieces perhaps. But methinks changes are a-coming. Changes in form of Zana Bayne's leather harnesses. Squash the images of rock climbing, and refrain from thinking about dog leashes and restrained horses for a moment.  With  a specific focus on lines and shapes, her pieces easily transform an entire silhouette. Take a look at the collarless shirt in the first photo. Now a collared button down with the addition of the harness. And how about those shoes? Unrecognizable boots with a little twist of hands and snap of some buttons.  

Zana's designs had me looking back through the Spring 2011 collection and recalling the leather harnesses sent down the runway by the likes of Michael Kors, Lanvin and Hermes. What do you think? Leather harnesses a pass, or would the world look back and go...to err is human?

I love Zana's harnesses. I hope to own one one day. I've been seeing them all over the runways recently so I think she should be getting excellent business this year. I don't really know anyone else by name that makes cool harnesses.

Gorgeous outfit; your skirt is so pretty and works great in contrast with the structured coat and the genius use of a cinhed in waist - oh how I envy your style! ;)
