I recently launched the new Eustratia latex/chainmail fusion collection, Chimera. The collection was produced in collaboration with chainmail and metal jewellery designer, Richard Ayres. The name was chosen to reflect the combination of two, very different materials.
The theme of the collection revolves around medieval military and knights while still adhering to aspects of current silhouettes and trends.

models: Victoria B, Biomechanina and Elle Beth
MUA: Mercedes and Sarah Jane Ellis
We also did a bit of a concept shoot before we got kicked off our chosen location!
Items from this collection are now available to purchase on the online store!
All chainmail components were hand made down to each individual link by my partner, Richard Ayres. He is also happy to take on orders for custom and bespoke items so feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas or questions. His collection of metal jewellery and accessories will also be added to the online store very soon.
It was a bit of a rush to get the whole collection made and shot before I left for clothes show live and I ended up waiting to launch till I got back and was able to add items to the shop. I’m quite happy with the way everything turned out given the circumstance, special thanks to David for all his help and support!
Close up shots of the accessories coming soon, along with some more perspex.
