The Black Leather Armour Boots

Like a knight getting ready for battle, Helena Barquilla, Spanish supermodel, is helped into a pair of Vivienne Westwood, black leather armour boots for the
AW92/93 ‘Dressing Up’ fashion show…& looks pretty sexy.
Being privy to the shows backstage I had a great opportunity to follow my fetishtic nature & snap away with my camera at the lovely views to be found there.
The show was taking place at the Azzedine Alaia showroom in Paris, one of two successive collections shown at this venue.

Only one pair of boots was ever made & they were an extension of the armour waistcoats (as worn by 80′s boy band, Bros ) & armour rings developed through Vivienne’s visits to the armour rooms in the Wallace Collection here in London.

It was about this time that I also started to get professional with my own fetish photography & so I borrowed the boots, the newly opened Davies St shop & Westwood model, Suzanne Mizzi, to take some shots that I felt would justify the subject.

It’s lucky that I did take these shots because in the process of the publicity of the collection, the boots were lent out for a fashion shoot & never came back! :-)
Who’s got them??!

  1. I remember seeing these boots in a color photograph in the fashion magazine SKY… the model wore large sunglasses and the boots were priced at that time at £600… I loved them.. I even phoned Worlds End to see if a pair could be made in a UK size 11 but it would have been too expensive to create the mould…
