Curve ~ What I Saw & What I Learned

August 22, 2017

Silent Arrow

Seasonal trends, as we know them, are over.  That is not to say, that there are not design messages. It’s simply that these messages overlap, moving fluidly between key intimate and RTW classifications; blurring boundaries.  Leggings become pants, Robes become jackets, Bodysuits and bras become blouses. And Pajamas go everywhere. Concepts Paris calls this Hybrid dressing.  It is a perfect definition of the evolution (revolution) occurring in a woman’s wardrobe. Mixing design elements, once a noisy fashion statement, is now “The Trend”.  It makes perfect sense. We are living in a culture of Collective Chaos where social media has commandeered the retail space and changed the state of our nation

Envie & Else

Having culled through 700 + photos, certain directional messages emerged, but they merge in many of the styles I saw, making it difficult to assign one particular moniker to any of them.  The fusion of lingerie and swim design is prevalent at many of the brands I reviewed. Is it a bodysuit, a bathing suit, a cover-up, loungewear….I could go on. Concepts Paris has aptly named this influence Swimtimates.

Skin Swim

If I have to highlight design intention from this particular show previewing Spring 18 collections, I would cite the following effects: Embroidery, Architectural laces, Blue – all shades, Pinks to Red, Always Black. Desert Pales. Stripes, Retro-graphics, Floral Prints, Asian impact, Pajamas, Pajamas, Pajamas, the Bandeau, Sport influenced lounge, Light fabrics, Sustainable fabrics, Dip Dye, Body Dressing,  Casual bras, Casual anything. And a bit of kitsch. Of course, there were other color stories, shapes, fabrics. But these were prevalent.

As usual, I haven’t seen the entire market yet. I guarantee that there are more examples. No favoritism here: Just the images that were the best examples given the poor lighting and my non-professional hand.

One Legging at A Time

August 20, 2017

By TINA WILSON

Tina Wilson Fashion Illustrations on Lingerie Briefs

I ADORE LEGGINGS! They can be a dresses’ best friend or a t-shirt’s worst nightmare.  When I first started wearing leggings way back in the day when hair was poufy and high; they came in one length, they had no tummy control, they couldn’t heat you up or cool you down and they had no pockets.  The only holes in them were caused by your thighs rubbing together and they mostly came in Black.  Leggings were supposedly not worn by the ‘fashionable’ crowd and mocking someone for wearing them outside of the gym was not uncommon.

Fast forward to today and you have a 500+ person wait list for Bandier’s Ultracor Star Legging. I must admit while I think they are fun, I am a bit baffled, especially at a price tag of just under 200$.  I love all things Stella McCartney and her Adidas collection is no exception but the influx of luxe legging competitors must be having an impact on sales. Even the European couture collections are have legging fever.  Perusing The Cut app on my IPad, I spied the most amazing Versace beaded legging paired with a jacket, talk about a hybrid! Speaking of hybrids (you may get sick of me mentioning this word over the coming months), Balmain has a boot so sexy and so crotch grazing high that seen from the right angle it appears to be a legging… a BootlegJ?…. sorry I couldn’t help myself.

Of course most of us cannot or will not spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a pair of leggings but that does not mean we must settle.  I recently acquired a pair of Commando Faux Leather leggings and while in the past I would have sworn not be caught dead in a pair of leather pants, these are very different…and when the weather cools down a bit, you will find me living in them.

Spanx now has a shrine to leggings in some major department stores and I must admit the Camouflage printed pair tempted me but the rack that held them in Bloomingdales was thinning out and my size was gone; it was the subtle darkness of the print that made them wearable, desirable and every day.

Tina Wilson Fashion Illustrations on Lingerie Briefs

Where do we legging lovers go from here?  I recently bought a pair of flared leggings in Zara, and I love them but I have come to the conclusion they are not right for my body type; but I see potential in treating leggings like other apparel, by giving them different proportions like wide flares and combining them more with other garments…I love my legging skirts, and hope to find more like them, can you hear me Athleta?

Tina Wilson Fashion Illustrations on Lingerie Briefs

In conclusion I want to explore why leggings are so loved, it is because, they grow when your body grows? They shrink when you do? They can be worn with just about everything? They pack well? They are season-less? They make us look athletic? They make us feel athletic? All of the above perhaps? Figuring this out is the key to evolving this retail gem. Whatever the reason for their popularity I am grateful and I have only one request, can someone please come up with a nicer name?  I am working on it, stay tuned!
