At the end of each month of catwalk shows in February/March and September/October I come home and immediately closet myself in the study to create an enormous and comprehensive trend report. It helps focus the mind on what I’ve been doing for the previous few weeks. And when intensely using Chris Moore’s brilliant catwalking.com you see what you missed in the flash and rush of a runway show. I love Chris.
Yesterday afternoon, while scrolling through my opus to SS10 it occurred to me that I could now serialise my trend report on FEAL. So I welcome you to the very first Trends Thursday!
I’m kicking-off with the mega-trend for lingerie, corsetry, and visible underwear. So many designers picked up on this visible/invisble, body-contouring, uber-feminine trend; each in their own unique way. Likewise we can also adopt it in our own unique way.
So here is my personal edit. Let the pictures talk to you.
high fashion super gorge lingerie fashion inspirations for ss10
Sophia Kokosalaki – love the way she has created the corset top with bra detail underneath. SO beautiful.
Loewe – Stuart Vevers mixed orange lace with khaki, a colour blend to take note of, methinks
Just Cavalli – who knew putting a satin bra over a tank could look so sexy.
YSL – this is demure, yet sensible and you don’t need to share your midriff with the world
Ferretti – how pretty is this? The lingerie trend can be as sexy or innocent as you want it to be
Dolce Gabbana – I have seen Stefano and Domenico’s corsetry up-close, and the workmanship is flawless
Justin and Thea of Preen are superb designers – I love their dresses, and this blends the corsetry theme with a light touch
Jean-Paul Gaultier – hmm. Love this shot. If I was 22 again I would wear this clubbing
The brilliant Giles Deacon corset dress – his SS10 show was my favourite EVER Giles collection. Can’t wait to wear it!
Louis Vuitton – just drink in this outfit for a while….The tassled shoes, the duffel, the denim corset. It’s brilliant!
I was lucky enough to have Antonio Berardi talk me through the making of this corset on Grazia Daily
. It was created by hand and then built into the the dress. His work is exquisite and totally contemporary
Bottega Veneta – this is how I will be wearing the lingerie trend. So chic! To me it looks like a new beginning.
Christian Dior – for me John Galliano was on total form for SS10. When I saw this in the showroom, it was actually an all-in-one.
Christian Dior – another one from John. This is a dress, and when I got up-close to it, it looked like a silken treasure from the trousseau of a forties Hollywood starlet that had been re-shaped for the 21st century
Fendi – a modern way of showing the underwear trend.
Dolce Gabbana – love the way they did this play of sheer/opaque goodgirl/badgirl. Modest sexiness is where it’s at
After viewing this you should be an expert, and when you see the trend highlighted in print media you can nod sagely and say “Oh yes, I know all about the lingerie trend for SS10!”.
Blogging is all about comments, so don’t be shy, tell Fashion Editor at Large what you think about all this….
