Fetish wear in the 1920s looked a hell of a lot like fetish wear now

These photos show the designs of Yva Richard, the foremost purveyors of fetish gear and BDSM accoutrements in France from the 1920s through to the early 1940s.

Originally founded simply as a lingerie company, the husband and wife team behind Yva Richard first branched out into erotic photography in 1923.

Nativa modelled their increasingly daring designs, while her husband L. Richard was behind her camera.

By the 1930s they stocked a range of products that wouldn’t look out of place at a modern fetish event, including handcuffs, dog collars with leads and “bizarre dominatrix ensembles made of leather, rubber, and even metal”.

Yva Richard’s one major commercial rival, Diana Slip, was also based in Paris. The only significant retailer of fetish wear and photography in the US at the time, Charles Guyette, imported many of his products from France.

Yva Richard was forced to close up shop in 1943 due to the Nazi occupation of France, but its significant influence is clearly visible in modern day fetish fashion and photography.

Turning down a scene or kinky proposition isn’t a sign of weakness, but its opposite—strength. It means you know yourself, your desires, and needs enough to stand up for them—and I daresay that will make you a better top, bottom, dom, sub, and/or lover.

Louise & Sally, Udo Bar by Emilie Jouvet

Men who are progressive, profeminist, or allies to women — we have to constantly check ourselves. We have to be open and listen to women and sometimes respond by taking a backseat and not encroaching on female space in ways that are kind of natural to us. It’s so integrated into who we are as men: to take center stage, to lead, to be out front, to not really understand the power dynamic that’s at play. I think it’s really important for all of us men who are progressive and who are working to eradicate sexism and all the other social ills out there to be a lot more cognizant of our presence in these circles and spaces.

- Byron Hurt in an interview with Bitch Magazine being an actual ally (via misandry-mermaid)
