Lingerie Inspiration

The concept of underwear worn as outerwear is not new to fashion. It has been around for a few seasons – we’ve spotted lingerie elements in various designer collections, promoted by celebrities, sometimes borrowed in streetstyle looks. Yet, for the Spring Summer 2016, lingerie inspiration seems more prominent than ever before.

In a realm which favors oversized volumes, baggy styles and genderless tailoring, I guess there is a need for softer elements. Whether it is more a matter of styling (as seen at Dries Van Noten, Vetements or Saint Laurent) or becomes an inspiration for entirely new constructions (check Balenciaga, Calvin Klein, Celine), lingerie is far from exhausting its power of seduction.

Bringing lingerie into the spotlight could be also regarded as an attempt to revamp and redefine femininity in terms fashion design. Let’s see in which way all those brassiere details, frills, negligees or pajamas will impact the configuration of our wardrobes.

Men – Behind The Scenes

The catwalk show may be the main attraction for every fashion addict. But nothing compares to the backstage images of the show, especially when they ‘re shot by  Sonny Vandevelde – “the fashion photographer trying to give you a glimpse behind the scene”. I mean, you can really get a glimpse of it, but also a fresh perspective on the next season’s fashionable looks. It’s not only about the outfits, it’s about posture, expression, spontaneity. The clothes look more ‘real’ and ‘alive’, because they’re worn by people after all… no stereotypes, no restrictions, just a few guys doing their work and having fun.

It seems that Rick Owens’ monk sobriety gets a sporty twist for the next season men. Which is very nice.

Henrik Vibskov’s oversized outfits are mixing a lot of textiles techniques with some statement head- pieces. Once again, he doesn’t seem to care about anything, breaking the rules and following his own way;

Raf Simons – sober look, bright cuts and a Tilda-like hairdo;

I love this crafted- tribal look at Damir Doma…

and the man-machine from Mugler

and Dries Van Noten – oh yes, he knows how to use color like no one other!

Dior Homme.  Of course, nothing compares with their last Summer collection, but I admit that the sporty couture in black & white looks pretty cool.

Jean Paul Gaultier comes along with his bohemian style, fake tattoos and spirited boys. The brick-outfit is genius!

This one is my favorite, I have to say it! I always loved red & black in bold stripes (and this time, it’s not Yohji Yamamato, but Riccardo Tisci). The Givenchy Collection for the next Fall is really fresh and powerful. Take a look at those nose – accessories, they’re perfect!

Great rush behind the Galliano show… plus a delicious mix of matt and shiny black.
