Autumn/Winter 2007 looks like being the most decadent What Katie Did season yet. They’ve looked to 1930s Berlin for inspiration with luxurious fabrics including velvet and organza — resulting in beautiful vintage corsets that will pretty much dazzle any warm-blooded creature. All the “What Katie Did”-corsets are handmade by one corsetier from start to finish, are spiral steel boned and designed to skim up to 4 inches from the waistline. Retail prices are to be between Â£125 and Â£200 (that’s $250/$400).
What Katie Did haven’t designed an underwired bra before as they were very rare in the 1940s and 1950s, however, Katie Halford found a couture sample dating back to the 1950s and couldn’t help but be inspired… The extremely burlesque-like (I’m saying this in a good way) pieces we’re seeing today are called Cabaret Lingerie by Katie. I can see why. 😉
Very classy, very retro — I’m sure the vintage lovers will eat the What Katie Did AW07 alive. Make sure to check out the What Katie Did website — and the What Katie Did products on our shopping backend (we’ll soon have the AW07 pieces added, I’m sure!)
