With some of the world’s strongest labels in store, award-winning Sydney retailer Max Black has established a reputation for being Australia’s best place to shop for latex and fetish fashion.
The Rubber Room, a large dedicated stand-alone space inside Max Black, now holds the country’s leading latex fashion collection with Honour, Libidex, Rubber55, Skin Two & Vivishine in store. Owner Bruce Duncan recently returned from a European tour that will see other labels join the retailer in 2014 for their first installations in Australia – including Something Wicked, Lascivious and latex impresarios DeMask.
It’s not just fetishists shopping here either – local stylists are always asking for pieces. Last year saw their stock appear regularly on mainstream TV (The X-Factor), in print and even dressing pop stars like Tina Arena for her latest video.
Max also invites small designers and emerging labels to showcase or launch their work in Sydney. “With big plans for the future, the range in store never rests” MB Buyer Sonya Sirny is excited about what’s coming. “The collection is fully curated so each designer or label has their own space, and customers love that we change things up regularly. By staying loyal to both large and small labels and working closely with them to create the in-store range, both the designer and the customer benefits”.
