New Direction- Corset is!

The catwalks have been full of it and we have seen many Lady GaGa-a-likes strutting around town in not much more than a leotard, so underwear as outerwear is firmly back on the fashion map. The basque or corset has followed the ‘body’ by making the break into the high street arena as these shots show. Its about body con, its very 80s a la Madonna, its sexy but somehow not smutty- which we think has much to do with the vintage vibe of the styling. The beautifully detailed Sonia Rykiel collection for H&M has had a strong hand in bringing this look into the collective consciousness.

Unleash your inner Betty Page and embrace lace for a look that we think has legs into 2010 and beyond…
