Mert & Marcus Bring Bondage to Interview

Something we have seen a lot of recently in fashion editorials is bondage style. Here, Mert & Marcus give their own take on the controversial creative direction, with this editorial for the September issue of Interview Magazine. The shoot stars a ensemble cast of top models, Candice Swanepoel, Saskia de Brauw, Anais Pouliot, Zuzanna Bijoch and Emily Baker. Each model is dressed by top stylist Karl Templer in black leather outfits from labels that include Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Salvatore Ferragamo and Azzedine Alaia.

We really love this black and white portrait series, and we feel it is Mert & Marcus doing what they do best. The quirky and innovative fashion styling by Karl Templer really makes this editorial stand out, and we feel each photograph is as strong as the next. These images are all buckles, studs, leather straps and masks, and we cannot get enough of the strictly sexy aesthetic.
