Underwear and lingerie have evolved greatly since the corsets and girdles of centuries past. From the conical shape of torpedo bras to the game-changing pushup, undergarments, and brassieres in particular, have been an essential aspect of women’s dress. Today, underwear has become a more visible part of fashion, with bras, bustiers, and other forms of lingerie being worn as tops and seen as daring sartorial statements. Designers at Paris Fashion Week have adopted this trend, putting a new spin on the revealing style.
Saint Laurent’s runway show was a contrast of sultry, dominatrix energy and classic, timeless style. Anthony Vaccarello’s designs were styled in a way that highlighted this juxtaposition. Latex bodysuits were worn underneath long, wool coats. Skin-tight patent pants were paired with pussy bow blouses and blazers. Micro bras made their way onto the runway as well, in latex or sheer lace. Many were layered under thick, checked blazers with gold buttons, while others were worn on their own.
Virgil Abloh’s latest collection for Off-White was full of cutouts and asymmetry, as well as the full Hadid clan making appearances on the runway. Perfect circles were omitted from skirts and dresses, and slip dresses in both leather and satin were styled effortlessly. The sex appeal was amped for winter, as tiny knit bras with matching pencil skirts came down the runway, creating a modern, sensual take on the “skirt suit.”
At Mugler, Casey Cadwallader’s designs for the Fall/Winter 2020 collection embodied sex appeal and sensuality. Second-skin garments, both in leather and mesh, dominated the collection, and undergarments reigned supreme. Subtle corsetry was included in a multitude of outfits, the boning just barely sticking out beneath the lights. Small, strapless bras fit into the collection perfectly, layered underneath leather coats and jackets.
