London-based leather fashion and bondage accessory label Fleet Ilya is the brainchild of husband and wife Resha Sharma and Ilya Fleet.They have three ranges: "a Classic range, a Concept range of daredevil styles for women, and Restraint." Fleet Ilya's popularity catapulted in 2006 when the couple launched their "kinky stuff." Celebrities who have been spotted sporting Fleet Ilyas are Rihanna and Sienna Miller.
The worked leather and its design is equine, I was thinking. No wonder! It turns out that Resha Sharma is a trained saddlemaker.

I am still at shock. I just learned that Alexander McQueen passed away. The news says he committed suicide.
British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has been found dead after taking his own life.
The 40-year-old committed suicide just days after the death of his mother, Joyce.
His death also comes just three years after his close friend, Isabella Blow - who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star - killed herself.
McQueen was found at his luxury flat in Green Park, central London. An ambulance was called to the address at 10.20am. It is believed he hanged himself.
A source at McQueen’s office this afternoon confirmed his death, saying: ‘It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.’
His death comes just days before the start of London Fashion Week and weeks before he was due to unveil his new collection at Paris Fashion Week on March 9.
