Moschino’s SS17 show takes a satirical approach to the lingerie trend.

With the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this past week, it feels like lingerie has taken center stage in the fashion industry. Perhaps it’s due to the assumption “sex sells,” or maybe it’s symbolic of a sexual emancipation. Either way, it’s undeniable lingerie is taken a subtle-- or not-so-subtle-- form in top designers’ Spring/Summer 2017 lines.

Bust(ier)ing a Move: Some shows, like Alexander McQueen’s, took an obvious approach to incorporating the bustier. Others, such as the Christian Dior collection, incorporated the bustier into the overall look-- new head designer (and shameless feminist) Maria Grazia included lingerie elements in many of the Dior dresses.
Breaking out the Bralettes: The trendy bralette makes a return for the SS17 runway. It was seen incorporated into both casualwear (Alberta Ferretti and Alexander Wang) and more formal attire (Giambattista and Galliano).
Tailored to Taylor: With lingerie having its moment on the fashion scene, is it coincidence newly acquired Victoria’s Secret Angel Taylor Hill was chosen to model many risqué looks?
Lingerie on Top: Alas, another 90s trend makes a comeback. Lingerie is no longer meant to be worn underneath apparel, but on top. Why wait to undress to show off your designer bra?
