it was a total surprise to the reader who was clicking on shiny things on FB and brought up a designer they'd never heard of based out of Ukraine. yes they do use UK based latex suppliers 4D and Radical Rubber. they specialise in latex, pvc and lycra and do know the difference (unlike a lot of fashion/newspaper press).
a reader who i didn't know was a reader just released this on their DA page.
While window shopping in a nondescript shoe store, the shopkeeper approached two customers Xafina and AsudemLatex
. "Would you ladies be interested in 80% discounts of any items? In
return, you have to model the item you have bought afterwards." They
nodded in unison. "I like these boots, was considering to buy them on
the next payday. But since we're talking 80%..." Xafina said as she
signed an agreement on the cashier's counter. Asudem has already slipped
her own choice of boots on, and her agreement was signed just moments
after she paid for her new footwear. "Alright then!" the shopkeeper
clasps her hands. "Let the modeling begin." Instantly, they felt warm
sensations course through their bodies...
Xafina and Asudem did
not move a muscle as they were now frozen as mannequins. Their clothes
were removed, supposedly not to take away any attention from the modeled
footwear. To add insult to the injury, the promotion was a month-long
her page is here on deviant art. and its the second page by an known artist so this is where all the weirder items go.
the next generation of remade Acquo boots are now on sale and comes with bonus handbag. you can get a pair or more in their shop page here.
for those of you not familiar with Atomage magazine from the UK in the 60'70's these were not a niche fashion oriented soft rubber boot available in Sweden. in their pages they also tended to be matched with heavy rubber rain wear. due to their ratity they became somewhat of a cultish item for rubber fetishists. the are very soft rubber - no where near what the fashionista's and royality wear at Glastonbury in those muddy fields.
the closest thing i found but never in my size as they've come and gone are Sigerson Morrison 'Rain or Shine' boots. again fabric lined and soft rubber. very tall narrow shaft which will collapse under their own weight - unlike Hunters or Riding Boots. i just looked but there's none on ebay.com...
