Corsets can be both lovely and functional, but these creations take functional to a new place. I can’t get over the craftsmanship on display in these garments made by Andrew Kanounov. The corsets look like they belong on the set of Lord of the Rings! They appear to be made of exquisitely carved leather, but they also look tough enough to withstand a few hits. Armor corsets. I can get behind this movement.
Though the designer has a Facebook page, he doesn’t have any information available on the materials used in these corsets or how you can purchase them. Yes, they probably would be quite expensive, but wouldn’t it be worth it?
