Discover the evolution of fetish wear in Amsterdam's nightlife through owner Jouke's interview with Het Parool.

"Fetish Wear makes its way into Nightlife"

That 'fetish wear' – clothing inspired by BDSM – no longer has solely a sexual connotation, these designers knew for a long time. But now, the Amsterdam nightlife is also beginning to embrace the trend. Going to the club in harness, that's just normal! 'Today's youth are more focused on self-expression, discovering who you are. Many young people dare to do what I didn't dare to do at that age.

"A second coming out? When I told my mother about the brand I wanted to start, it felt like that. Fortunately, she reacted very relaxed when I said that I also wore such things myself." - Jouke Halma
