Honour Celebrates the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by Looking Back at how the Fetish Industry has Changed during her Reign
It’s almost time to raise our glasses to the Queen of our nation, celebrating 60 years on the British throne. But with just a week to go before the predictable flag waving, tea time celebrations begin, take a trip down memory lane and see how the sex industry has changed during her majesty’s time on the throne.
The US X Factor, Simon Cowell’s attempt to take the US for everything they have, pretty much the same way he dominates the UK twice year. Now, after the supposed success of the first series, the second series is already in the pipeline; however with a few noticeable absences. First up, Steve Jones was axed from his presenting duties, Paula Abdul vacated her position as a judge and then Nicole Scherzinger was unceremoniously dumped. So with two positions available on the judging panel, now according to The Sun, one Britney Spears is putting herself forward for a role.
Yes, the girl who made red PVC catsuits and shaving your head cool, ok, maybe not the latter, but the ex pop princess is looking to branch out into a more mature arena. She is 30 now after all; she can’t really get away with prancing around on stage in bra and panties with a snake wrapped around her shoulders.
On her behalf, a friend said, “She’s a huge fan of The X Factor and thinks it’s the perfect time for her to be a judge. She wants to show her fans she is back to her best and where better to do that than on national TV every week? She knows all about the ups and downs of pop fame. And with her schedule relatively clear she has the time to dedicate to a different project.”
Though it isn’t set in stone, could you imagine Britney sandwiched between Cowell and producer L.A. Reid? Well Britney can, but at this stage there are a few more in candidates in the running including Pink, Fergie, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey, Cowell is still in talks with the shows producers and the network over the replacements.
When Charles Visited Honour…
On a recent visit to Waterloo, the future King of England reigned over Honour’s flagship store as he perhaps was on the look out for something to tickle his and Camilla’s fancy this coming Valentine’s Day. Did he have his eye on a PVC Mini Dress for Camilla and maybe some Rubber Military Trousers for himself?
There he was clear as day, but unfortunately Honour cannot confirm or deny Charles’ presence in their store. From the photo, for Charles anyway, the heaving mob of people trying to get a glimpse of our future King may have possibly prevented him from purchasing anything, but then there is always the website when he gets home.
But what did Honour’s Store Manager Ella make of the royal visit? All in a days work for her by the sounds of things, “Many a famous face has passed our shop door way.” Tactful to the end, so perhaps he did make an appearance in store after all?
“At times like Xmas and Valentines we are very busy selling our clothing, lingerie and toys.” Ella said, “Whilst the high street shops and supermarkets stock up with fun, inexpensive gifts people come to us for something different… We have even sent goods to the other side of the world for customers.”
So maybe Charles did get something in the end???
At the Golden Globes party earlier this week Jessica Alba wore a cute but kinky PVC dress.
The mother-of-two gave the demure LBD a twist by choosing PVC fabric as the base for the outfit.
The 30-year-old actress looked incredibly svelte for someone who only recently gave birth to her second child.
Although the style was conservative, Jessica used the sexy fabric to ensure she still stood out from the crowd when attending the Golden Globe Awards Event at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
We approve of Miss Alba’s style, very much so.
January may be a more conservative month than frivolous December, but that is no reason to leave the kink out of our wardrobes. Our PVC Penelope Pencil Dress is a perfect example of an elegant evening dress, with significant kink.
Don’t follow the high-street crowd, keep it sexy, shiny and simple with PVC.

Our clothes were used to dress the dancers for Kitty’s spectacle of a performance on Saturday. Last week saw X Factor contestants embrace the Lady Gaga v Queen theme, with Lady Gaga herself performing and Kitty belting out Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now. Her song choice was somewhat of a statement after she ended up in the bottom two last week. But former stripper, Kitty Brucknell, received praise from the judges after her performance, of what was perhaps her most outrageous of the series yet.
Stepping out onto the stage dressed all in black with huge hair and glittery make-up, feisty Kitty danced around on a podium surrounded by leather clad dancers, courtesy of us, who gyrated their way through her performance. The dancer’s costumes were chariot horse inspired and featured our popular leather bondage harnesses and PVC trousers and shirts.
Unfortunately Kitty found herself in the bottom two again and was axed on Sunday’s results show when the judges voted her off following a sing-off with Misha B.
But as their verdict sank in, sobbing Kitty snatched the microphone from host Dermot O’Leary and sang an unaccompanied chorus of Gaga’s hit Born This Way.
A show insider said: ‘Gaga couldn’t believe Kitty had been axed and thought she was one of the most talented and exciting acts in the competition. She thought that Kitty had been misunderstood and it reminded her of her own struggles to be accepted.’
Gaga then stunned the show’s judges by leading Kitty back to her dressing room to give her a cup of tea and some advice on how to launch her career.
Regardless of Kitty’s earlier exit she has a huge following that includes none other than Queen guitarist Brian May, who gave her performance of Who Wants To Live Forever in week one the thumbs-up, saying: ‘Thank you, Kitty, for putting your heart into it in such an individual way. Go Kitty!’ His loyalty to Kitty’s unique talent continued with him blogging of the 26 year-old eccentric: ‘Kitty, try looking at what they said about Freddie Mercury when we started out. Jealousy is a powerful emotion – it turns people into beasts. They are all wishing they were you.’
We are very proud to have our products involved in such high drama and quality showmanship. To view just how striking our attire is and what fantastic support it gave to Kitty’s fetish inspired performance, click on the link below.
Former Honour model Esme Bianco has perfectly brandished a whole range of seductive outfits for us in promotional and instructional films, from our naughty Latex Rubber Schoolgirl Uniform to our provocative PVC Discipline Dress. Browse the hot video links below, all expertly produced by esteemed UK horror director Jake West.
From Honour’s catwalk Esme went on to become a unique and tantalising burlesque and cabaret perfomer, appearing in a number of high-profile music videos and performing live at the Brit Awards.
Now the ravishing redhead is mixing with the A-Listers in LA and is frequently being snapped on the arm of leather and PVC lover Marilyn Manson. Esme joins the elite pool of Manson vixens, comprising of the infamous burlesqe queen Dita Von Teese and striking actress Evan Rachel Wood.
Miss Bianco, originally from Hertfordshire, has also hit our TV screens, starring as fiery red-haired harlot Ros in a number of episodes for HBO’s epic fantasy drama Game of Thrones.
No wonder Manson has got his claws into this delectable being.
Despite taking a back-seat from the limelight this year, Marilyn Manson is still regarded as a seminal goth-rock performer, attracting religious, sexual and political controversy everywhere he goes. His brutally raw and dark music videos, many the work of director and photographer Floria Sigismondi, remain potent to this day.
Our Company Director, Mandy Xereb, expresses her delight at the sensational ascendary of Esme Bianco, saying; ‘I’m over the moon to see that our former model Esme is catwalking down the streets of Hollywood and rubbing shoulders with the stars along the way. We are sure that the sexy seductress will continue her rise to stardom!’
We hope to continue to pave the way to Hollywood for our models.
Ladies who are of a larger size are more likely to have sex with someone on a first date, according to research from FreeDating.co.uk.
Cited by Opposingviews.com, the research found that women with a bigger frame are more inclined than their skinny counterparts to give it up on the first night.
Furthermore, tall women are more likely to whip out the PVC clothing on the first night than short women are. Married men who are dating on the side are also quite inclined to get a bit of action on the initial meeting – as are males who are in good physical shape.
Mail Online also reported on the interesting figures, adding: “In women, declining education levels lead to increased willingness to first-date sex, while in men, the better educated were more willing to have sex on the first date, the survey found.
“Perhaps unsurprisingly, the women who said they were medium drinkers, had an interest in cars and spent time in bars were more inclined to have first-date sex. Whereas, those who said they were teetotal and bizarrely, had an interest [in] cycling would say ‘not tonight chaps’.”
The results were collated after 10,000 people were surveyed about their sexual habits; each of whom are members on the Free Dating website.
New found bravery is being found on our catwalks this season.
Plastic and rubber may offer a diverse and varied range of qualities extremely suitable for the bedroom, but these unique materials are now proving to be quite the star attraction on the fashion runways too. These exotic materials are to be housebound no more.
With leggings and mackintoshes made of PVC and latex, stiletto-heeled shoes of recycled hardware and other unexpected fashion plunges, many designers are finding success in risqué trends that haven’t taken off in previous years.
Critics and columnists continue the debate as to what the success of these daring fashions can be attributed to. Perhaps it’s the current state of the world, a new severity of uncertainty in the future that needs to be decorated with fun and frolics, which has finally opened the door for fashion to go where it’s never dared to go before.
The dark-futurism of what has been dubbed ‘cyber-punk’ is hard not to be intrigued by. The ‘cyber-punk’ style is bold and seamlessly pulled off by respected designers such as Thierry Mugler, Louis Vuitton and Burberry.
Laga Gaga’s stylist Nicola Formechetti, creative director for Thierry Mugler, constructed a rubber range for his 2011 Autumn/Winter collection that included such items as latex leggings, skirts and bodysuits. Gaga herself appeared in a latex get-up, accessorised with a tricorn hat and pearls.
The materials being showcased are mainly PVC and latex, with the ‘wet look’ being paraded by a variety of A-listers. A fabulous style statement that looks so much more interesting than regular leggings or tights. The definition of where fashion ends and fetishism starts. Step out of the bedroom and onto the street, your moment has come.
