And some more Websites/Blogs that wrote about YVY @ CH-Talents Depicting Fashion:
-On the British council website it says "eye-catching work by leather accessories designer YVY in which the leather is hand-crafted into bold yet feminine pieces. These are more like works of art than garments but all are made to measure to ensure the customer of their comfort and wearability."
-Katie-Rose writes "These two leather body pieces were my personal favourite discoveries of London Fashion Week. Handmade and designed by Yvonne Reichmuth for Swiss brand YVY, they epitomise raw sexiness or even elegance depending on how you style it."

CH talents: Depicting Fashion presents key looks by a selection of Swiss fashion designers including menswear label Laend Phuengkit, womenswear designer Yvy and design duo Portenier Roth.

Several magazines and blogs wrote about YVY's new collection SKIN. Here are some of my favourites (click on magazine name to see more) :
- Treats! , a LA-based magazine about high fashion and sensuality, writes "These body harnesses from Swiss collection YVY by Yvonne Reichmuth has us all abuzz here at the TREATS! office. (...)"
- Fashionising, english/australian fashion platform described it very well ""YVY’s ‘Skin’ collection (the nude edition in particular) is one that plays in that space of elegance with attitude. (...) In the look book the ‘Nude’ collection really is worn nude, but like all good leather harnesses there’s a multitude of ways you could style each piece."
- Not Just A Label, featured YVY in their newsletter, on FB & Twitter and in their "black sheep" (most promising & fashion-forward designers) directory
- TrendHunter, "... From waist hugging corsets and cropped bras to belted harness pieces, these highly suggestive lingerie staples exude a strong sense of allure and sensuality. (...)
The edgy custom accessories are powerful and provocative whether worn in public or private."
- Faces, swiss magazine writes about the showroom and SKIN
-Hope Hope, swiss online magazin and blog
- The Fashion Fraction, visited the showroom and blogged: "I was pretty impressed by the leather accessories from the brand YVY. I love nearly every single piece because every piece is so outstanding and so eye catching."

After several months experimenting with leather crafting I am very happy to show you the first part of my new collection.
"SKIN" is a unique line of provocative handmade leather accessories.
Exquisitely hand-crafted, only using the finest leather, combined with delicate rivets, to create timeless art-pieces that never go out of style.
I created two new editions inspired from medieval armor from centuries past mixed with a kinky fetish twist.
The following pictures are showing the elegant and classic Black Edition - Made from high quality black calf leather, with a subtle shine and silver hardware.
