This photo spread by Koray Parlak for Marie Claire Turkey is yet another example of the fetish fad that has dominated the fashion industry with whips, bondage and other sexualized tools of the trade. Instead of the typical gritty and dark shots, this editorial is rich with color (though there is still a dark element to each image).

Starring models Nina Reijnders and Victoria Lipatova, the editorial by Koray Parlak for Marie Claire Turkey was styled by Hakan Ozturk. Ozturk has somehow managed to take the shock value away from the taboo subject matter and focus on highlighting the fashion on display. From dramatic corsets to billowing sleeves and leather-meets-lace details, he has created looks that are fit for risque aristocrats and daring fashionistas.
