Lingerie-Inspired Runway

A film noir-inspired runway is such a clever idea, and naturally suggests a collection of glamorous pieces! Christian Dior, through the direction of John Galliano, presented the Spring/Summer 2010 collection in Paris last week.

Galliano turned the skimpies—French lace-trimmed cami-knickers and satin teddies—into a contemporary version of this summer's shorts and playsuits, following through with a trousseau's worth of pretty boudoir baby dolls and tiny, fragile flowered chiffon dresses. Cleverly, the transparencies—such as a purple satin bra-and-knicker set, apparently seen through black tulle—were an illusion created by stretch, paneled underlayers, so that the pieces are actually slipped on in one. Stocking tops seen through the sheer panels in a copper lamé dress, and bras and panties glimpsed under a semitransparent tiered blue gown, were actually shadows stitched into underslips. via Sarah Mower
