In July, we showed you Dior’s Fall 2009 couture runway show, which incorporated lingerie and lingerie-inspired clothing. The theme is back for the Spring/Summer 2010 ready-to-wear line – just look at these great photos! Designer John Galliano sent gorgeous lingerie down his runway – chemises peeking out of the bottom of trench coats; bras, knickers, and stockings visible through transparent top layers; and bustiers incorporated into tops and gowns.
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.
Here’s a video interview of Galliano discussing his inspirations and how he thinks his fans will react to wearing the pieces, as well as some runway footage:
