  • Hungry for Libidex

    A nice selection of Libidex latex was paraded over the pages of Hunger magazine this month, showing us in dark and hard mode for once! It's the first time we've appeared in Hunger - a biannual  fashion magazine from photographer and publisher Rankin, which was launched in November 2011. Hunger is undoubtedly one of the most culturally challenging magazines around today, and photographer Rankin successfully blends fashion, lifestyle and art with a unique creative vision. Just the place we need to be seen in!

    Photography is by Dilma Hohlov and the Fashion Editor is Kimi O'Neill.

  • National Portrait Gallery Acquires Carlos Clarke Pictures

    bob-carlos-clarke.jpg

    Works by fetish and celebrity photographer (and Libidex collaborator) Bob Carlos Clarke have been presented to the National Portrait Gallery in London by the Bob Carlos Clarke Foundation.

     

    The 10 portraits include subjects such as celebrity chef Marco Pierre White; a tousle-headed Rachael Weisz (another Libidex fan); Stones member Ronnie Wood reflecting on (and in) his guitar; an open-topped Mick Jagger photographed during performance at The Marquee in 1971; and an almost baby-faced study of Elton John.  

    Bob Carlos Clarke

    Before his suicide in 2006, Bob collaborated with Libidex’s Simon Rose on a number of projects, famously shooting our Goddess Catsuit as a chocoholic, decadently spilling a glassful of molten chocolate, which seems a favourite Carlos Clarke motif (Bob once considered shooting the model for his picture ‘Sticky Fingers’ dripping with chocolate, but finally settled on molasses).

     

    Simon was in the midst of planning a photo shoot with Bob when he heard of Bob’s death. “It was a great shock at the time, but I decided to go ahead and finish the shoot in the style that Bob and I had planned, with Emma Delves-Brougton behind the lens”, says Simon. “The results can be seen in some of the pictures on our website. It was, in a way, his last work – at any rate, it was greatly inspired by him.”
