Versace's Black Leather Derbys are designed with inspiration drawn from BDSM and kink culture. The fashion house has been referencing fetish in their fashion designs as early as the 90s. It notes that "menswear has its own history of borrowing from kink culture… [i]t began in the realm of the submissive in BDSM culture and became an aesthetic in and of itself.”
The exterior of the shoe and lining composition is constructed from 100% leather materials -- the shape boasts a rounded toe with an open lacing system at the front. The shoelaces are on top of the vamp and as a nod to the sexual culture, there are harness straps over the lateral side of the shoe over the front. Additional details include the silver tonal hardware that references the punk rock double grommet leather belt.
