Underwear as outerwear

Ahhh, I've always loved lingerie SO much. My first bra was a horrible white 30AAA thing and I was gutted that I had to wear this monstrosity instead of the fancy lacy numbers i'd seen in my mums magazines. Now i'm a real grown up and things have (thankfully) moved on since my 30AAA days I get to wear the underwear I once pined over which means I can welcome the S/S10 trend I am so excited about with open arms. GETTING YOUR PANTS OUT.

It was Bottega Veneta that I first noticed. Inspired by a group of karate kids, his collection is a bunch of stuff with clean lines in a crisp white you can only get by using daz washing powder.



Christopher Kane's collection subtly suggests underwear with a kind of young, innocent feel. Sort of 'Lolita' with its gingham fabric and slits right up the thighs. Daisy Lowe can be seen in one of his pieces teamed with American Apparel socks in The Sunday Times suppliment, eep cute.



Jean Paul Gaultier was bound to appear, what with the whole Madonna pointy bra thing. His 'G-spot' collection was about as in your face as his usual collections with bold colour and fabric choices. The look was kind of denim gangster/ militry inspired and wouldn't have looked amiss on Salt'n'Pepa.




Other designers that have done something pretty special are; Mark Fast, Dolce & Gabbana, Louise Goldin and Dior with their grown up hollywood glamour.

I'm probably going to excessively embrace this trend and wear nothing but leotards, fancy bra's, see through tops and a cheeky suspender belt for a few months.
