Figure hugging cut out dresses and high-waist pants all scream scuba diving even extreme sports. Sportive lacing was cleverly used as adornments while the weight belt, a must of scuba diving was re-imagined to be corset of sorts.

In all this tightness and use of straps, there is also the subliminal message of S&M, though it was never front and center. It was subtle, almost non-existent at times but it is definitely there.
