Leather might not be your first choice for tackling SXSW in Austin’s subtropical humidity this week, but NYC design house Zana Bayne makes a strong case for the sexy material with a new “Road Trip” capsule collection. True to Bayne’s sophisticated, subversive aesthetic, her spring lineup features star-studded bags, chokers, harnesses and thoughtful accessories for your shoes—all perfect for elevating music festival style.
The campaign was shot by longtime collaborator, Todd Pendu, and stars BULLETT’s own “Grips of Love” star, Sita Abellan, who’s an ideal muse for Bayne’s S&M-imbued brand—a favorite of major stars from Beyoncé to Lady Gaga, Ciara to Katy Perry. Regardless of whether you’re migrating south for SXSW, Bayne’s four-step guide to wearing pieces from “Road Trip” is applicable to anyone craving adventure this spring:
1. Jump into the car with your crew
2. Roll down the windows and let the wind run through your hair
3. Turn up the radio to the highest decibel
4. Adventure off into the sunset
