Leather designers at London's Whitaker Malem are having a moment, thanks to the striking body armor worn by Wonder Woman and her band of gorgeous Amazons in this summer's blockbuster movie. When design school grads Paddy Whitaker and Keir Malem got the commission from the film's costume designer, "We were allowed to go close to the body and do sexy armor, which is unusual. A lot of armor is massive," explains Malem to the New York Times. The team is currently at work designing more leather armor for the sequel, Aquaman.
