Pushing the boundaries of fashion is something Zana Bayne clearly excels at. Founded by herself and Co-Creative Director Todd Pendu, Zana’s eponymous brand quickly gained attention with its fetish-inspired accessories, highlighting the key relationship between sex, leather and skin. Since its launch in 2010, the brand has attracted famous musicians, actors, artists and private clients alike, who quickly became fans of Zana’s handcrafted harnesses, belts, chokers and bags. I caught up with her and Todd to discuss the evolution of their brand, why fashion still loves fetish and how being copied is ultimately unavoidable. Interview by Philippe Pourhashemi

This year’s ANDAM Prize winner has several reasons to be happy. In a few years, Glenn Martens has turned Y/Project into one of the buzziest and most sought-after brands in Paris, doubling stockists each season and gaining recognition from the press. Martens can simultaneously dress Rihanna, his best friends and beloved grandmother in Y/Project, because his clothes have a deeply human quality. Interview by Philippe Pourhashemi.
