OF CORSET MATTERS
Corset-lacing gained momentum in recent Fall collections. The decorative yet functional detail conjures both foundation garments and sport details (like the lacing on footballs or boxing gloves), making it perfect for this moment when both lingerie and athletic influences permeate ready-to-wear. The lacing appears on torsos, necklines, pant-legs & sleeves, highlighting construction while performing as a shaper or closure. Cords can be simply pushed through buttonholes or loops for a softer look, but most are threaded through metal or powder-coated grommets.
