Marie Tomeoki is a contemporary visual fine artist born in Tokyo, Japan, currently living and working in Toronto, Canada… and she has a passion for latex!
On Marie’s YouTube Channel you will find her talking about latex fashions, the materials and reviewing different latex garments.
I really like Maire’s down to earth approach to wearing latex and find her positive and sweet way to introduce the viewer to the wonderful world of latex both personal and unique. I really hope we are going to see much more from Marie in the future!
Lüllepop is a young, unique Berlin fashion label. Cathleen Reinheckel and Andre Gawanka are designing latex fashions with clever catchy combinations using textiles and latex in such a way that it’s eye catching and extravagant yet still practical and wearable.
Lüllepop gear is designed to take full advantage of the female form and lure and bedazzle the male of the species. The feminine lines are well brought together using materials such as lace, lycra, fine nappa leather or even knitted materials, all cleverly combined with latex.
Ready for the start of the 15th Erotic Fair in Berlin (Venus) Cathleen and Andre have created a fitting “Desous” collection, which will guarantee to turn some heads, especially among the men.
The “Dolcessa in autunno” collection is in colors spanning from soft Champagne tones, to warm passionate burgundy colors of a deep full bodied red wine. Lüllepop has also used lots of lace to keep the soft feminine touch and combine it with the more raunchy latex fem-dom style. G-strings & triangular bras, and an array of charming panties etc.
Micaela Schäfer models some of the Lüllepop creations on the Venus Berlin Erotic fair poster this year and it is also Lüllepop who designed the garments that Micaela will be wearing at the Venus Berlin Awards. A dream made of latex & lace.

Laser cut latex fashion has been a big thing this year, both for the more established latex designers as well as the DIY latex enthusiasts out there. The latest craze on the laser cut fashion front-line is these amazing Latex Fishnet Stockings from Ego Assassin.
I asked James from Ego Assassin, how they came up with this idea “We got the idea to make latex fishnets because over the years many of our customers have asked us if it was possible to make such a thing. We have always had to say no because we couldn’t think of a way to cut a fine and consistent mesh pattern into latex, and still maintain any semblance of durability. I know that many latex designers — ourselves included — have attempted to solve this problem with a variety of appliqué-based approaches, but the final product was always rather bulky and the look was never quite right.”
He continues “When Kink Engineering announced they would be offering laser-cutting services to the latex industry, one of our first thoughts was that it could be used to finally make a true fishnet latex stocking. We experimented with various laser settings, hole shapes, and mesh densities, until we arrived at a pattern that worked.”
So how the stockings are produced? James explains “The stockings are made by laying a sheet of latex into the laser machine, and cutting the whole stocking in one piece, including thousands of tiny rounded slashes. The piece is then taken out of the machine, the off-cuts are removed, and it is thoroughly cleaned. The stockings are then assembled with one seam up the back and reinforcement around the edges. The end result is a sheer, lightweight, and durable latex fishnet stocking that can be worn on its own, or shined up and paired any latex outfit.”
Check out this video from Ego Assassin on how easy it is to put on the stockings:
Pretty cool, right? The stocking are actually leg sleeves witch is a really good thing, as your tiny toes won’t get stuck in the stockings mesh and is simply much more comfortable to wear. I also believe they would also look fantastic on top of regular pair of latex stockings.
I’m sure that we have just scratched the surface of what is possible with laser cut latex, and we can expect much more on this front in the years to come!
