Love, trust and erotic leatherwear: Stevie Mackenzie-Smith meets the married couple behind Fleet Ilya.

It is late summer in London, which is to say that hot buses are full of wet necks and upper lips, corner shop ice-cream freezers are low on the good stuff, and the intermittent rain showers still call for the carrying of an umbrella. It’s the perfect time to get away. Resha Sharma and Ilya Fleet are just back from France, and have the laid-back, contemplative air of two people who’ve been spared negotiating a hot city in the summer.
