The Electric Leather Bra
Sometimes we see beautiful things and want them so much! I had my eyes for a while in this beautiful electronic leather bra. They sell it at the amazing shop RA 13 in Antwerp. And now has a 50% discount! But even with the discount it retails at a steep €1275. Louise Goldin is a Danish London-based womens-wear designer whose exquisite knitwear garments present the cutting edge in technological knitwear in form-fitting, sculptured designs. Louise is pioneering in new techniques and yarns in knitwear, fusing lurex and cashmere for the most precise structures, ribbing, boning & paneling in her body-contouring designs. Her aesthetic has been described as 'aggressively Utopian'. Positive clothes with inspiration in biological and chemical science, mechanics and anatomy, with both corsetry & sportswear details evident in her work. The bra in question belongs to the current in store Autumn Winter collection. A futuristic military collection that was in the usual Goldin style of very structured and padded silhouettes. It slots in neatly with our first collection called Female Warriors.

They communicate a woman "that carries a conscious affirmation of power both in the physical and intellectual aspects of life". What Goldin suggests with this collection is that in an increasingly tough society, a woman needs to protect herself. She presented this notion with armorial chest plates, don’t mess with me leather accents and accentuated hip and necklines in her signature knits and technologically developed materials like Lurex. Louise is redefining power dressing in radical and forward thinking way. Maybe we like her creations so much because at Miista we like to see our woman quite in the same way as Louse Goldin sees hers. But even at that reduced price, a young designer starting up a her own label, would think a 100 times before decideding to spend that sum of money. :) Something like this would have been an amazing Christmas present, but also I did not get it! Nudge nudge, wink wink!
