The New-York leather accessories designer is teaming up with the cult Swedish brand on a capsule collection launching this autumn.
Bondage style leather accessories may seem like an unusual choice from Scandi brand & Other Stories, but this autumn that’s exactly what they plan to launch, collaborating with renowned accessory designer Zana Bayne on a range of S&M inspired products.
If you haven’t heard of Zana Bayne then she should definitely be on your radar – remember Beyonce’s half time Superbowl? Or how about her Lemonade video? Bayne designed the artisanal harnesses. She also has collections for Prabal Gurung and Marc Jacobs under her beautiful hand-crafted leather belt.
The designer took to Instagram to announce news of the collaboration with a photo of herself and Co-Creative Director Todd Pendu picking out samples. The image was accompanied with a caption that explained how the pair have been secretly meeting in Stockholm for the last eight months whilst they work on the project.
The collection will include 30 key pieces crafted in Bayne’s signature leather ranging from $29 for a leather chocker and $245 for a bustier. & Other Stories shared a photo on their Instagram of said bustier in sumptuous burgundy leather and adorned with a silver buckle.
"We set out to create a leather collection for modern women, juxtaposing the hard and soft throughout; taking pieces such as the leather harness out of its connotations and making it an elegant accessory for layering over any wardrobe in all types of occasions," said Bayne.
In addition, the & Other Stories design team created a complementary ready-to-wear collection, with Bayne's and Pendu's input, to debut alongside the leather accessories.
The collection will debut online and in & Other Stories stores this autumn.
