Luxury lingerie, loungewear and boudoir accessories brand FYI by Dani Read brings us an utterly thrilling new collection for spring summer 2013 entitled ‘The Replicant’. Drawing inspiration from science fiction, Read’s replicant – indistinguishable from a human being (think Battlestar Galactica’s Number Six meets Trinity from The Matrix) and isolated by technology – rebels against her social confinement by embracing her powers of seduction.
It’s an exciting concept for Read’s new line, with the colours and fabrications also channelling the themes of the very technology that binds the replicant. Erotically charged, sinister but functional designs in leathers, silks and micro knits with alluring hardware embodies the femme fatale archetype – as each of Read’s collections indeed do. View autumn winter 2012: ‘The Commander’, here.
“The FYI woman is alluring, powerful, and dangerous. Our message is clear:
Women are weapons.™ Dress yourself as such.”
