The poor models at Louis Vuitton.

Update (07/11/14): This blew up and there were a lot of comments on the post and people messaging me to ask what happened. Since I’m not a runway model, I decided to ask one. I asked Kayley Chabot (whose résumé includes more than 100 shows in the four fashion capitals) if she had ever had to deal with uncomfortable shoes during fashion month, and here’s what she told me:

"The shoes are undoubtedly the worst part of fashion month. I’ve gone down the runway as my feet have been bleeding and torn apart from ridiculously small shoes. Almost every show I’ve ever done, the shoes have been much too small, either cutting off circulation and molding your foot to the shoe, or blisters and blood everywhere. Generally at the end of fashion month, I don’t recognize my own feet. They’re covered in blisters, cuts, everything. So yes, all of our feet look like that by the end of the month! (If a girl’s eyes look rather glossy during a show, she’s probably holding back tears.)”

So there you have it. Runway modeling may seem like a walk in the park, but it sounds like it can be a pretty excruciating, blister-filled walk.

literally cannot wait for the day when society advances to the point where women are no longer obligated to wear bras in public

this was the case in the 70s for quite a while (any movie from that time will show you braless actresses), but the conservative backlash took all that away from us.

…which is a shame because my tits are my most fashionable accessory

also Jennifer Aniston tried to bring it back in the 90s and looked good doing it, but it didn’t stick.

yes please 

since middle school i’ve been ashamed of having boobs but i hate wearing bras so much. especially in the summer

lets bring back the braless look. free the boobiadoos 2014, the future starts now

ya’ll tiny-titted folk can keep your braless movement… I’m not walking around with my 44H boobs unsupported

n_n;

Nah I’m not feeling it. Unsupported DD’s are not what I’m about

YOU GUYS ARE MISSING THE POINT its not like. lets never wear bras ever, my main point was let’s not make bra-wearing something that a woman has to do in order to be deemed ~acceptable to be seen in public

agree. the point is “bras optional”, not “bras forbidden” or “bras required”. “bras optional” periods in recent american fashion history can be said to coincide with the status of women, and particularly the popularity of women’s movements. at the turn of the century a lot of suffragettes rejected the corset and skirt and went for bloomers and loose blouses, a trend which was ridiculed in the popular press. in the 1920s and 30s (flappers were liberated women) there were a lot of braless looks and braless fashion, then post-world wars, things got conservative again, and the famous and uncomfortable bras and girdles of the 40s-50s became de facto. in the 60s and 70s the women’s and sexual liberation movements shocked all the buttoned-down old folks with bringing back the visible nipple, and this lasted into the early 80s, when conservatism snapped back and we ended up in a whole new generation of consumeristic, de rigeur underwear.  

prior to this, the 1700s in Europe boasted a lot of Visible Breasts, often in conjunction with the corsets of the day, and sometimes in a more Greco-Roman “loose” style.  and this likewise was a comparatively progressive era in terms of the very earliest proto-feminist ideas.

the whole point is that we should have the option. the fact that we dont, unless we are intent on “transgressing” and being met with negative attention, reflects the societal status of women and the broad feelings of our current culture towards feminism and women’s issues.

my official prediction is that bralessness is about to come back, and early fashion adopters are already pushing that envelope, notably Rihanna and Beyonce.

By the 1960s, Carnaby Street proved popular for followers of both the mod and hippie styles. Many independent fashion boutiques, and designers such as Mary Quant, Marion Foale and Sally Tuffin, Lord John, Merc, Take Six, and Irvine Sellars were located in Carnaby Street as well as various underground music bars such as the Roaring Twenties in the surrounding streets. With bands such as Small Faces, The Who, and The Rolling Stones appearing in the area to work (with the legendary Marquee Club located round the corner in Wardour Street), shop, and socialize, it became one of the coolest destinations associated with the Swinging London of the 1960s.

The Carnaby Street contingent of Swinging London stormed into North American and international awareness with the April 15, 1966 publication of Time magazine’s cover and article that extolled this street’s role:

Perhaps nothing illustrates the new swinging London better than narrow, three-block-long Carnaby Street, which is crammed with a cluster of the ‘gear’ boutiques where the girls and boys buy each other clothing…

Shades (could have a lanyard attached but probably not… by Dean Martin)

These shades can hide the teardrops crying.
But not the way I feel inside.
These shades can only do their part oh yeah.
But these shades can’t hide the broken heart.

These shades can hide my red red eyes.
But not the hurt left by your lies.
These shades can only do their part oh yeah.
But these shades can’t hide the broken heart.

Dark shades i keep on wearin’
as long as I’m still caryin’
for you and I still love you
so oh why did you go now.

These shades can hide my eyes away.
But not the pain I feel each day.
These shades can only do their part oh yeah.
But these shades can’t hide the broken heart.
But these shades can’t hide the broken heart…..(fading)

"Baby girl doesn’t it seem —- everything now has an eighties theme?" The 1980s were (in some ways a) glorious time, especially for sunglasses and that is most likely the era which L’Avvocato’s shades are from. The side shields and lanyard really bring that unmistakable geriatric chic that every old man style aficionado loves so much. Now I very much doubt that a philandering bastard like Gianni Agnelli would have ever worn shades to hide a broken heart but he did for sea sailing and other aquatic activities and that is when side shields, those sports temples (the old fashioned ones that wraparound the ear) and the lanyard actually serve a purpose. 

The lanyard in particular appeals to me, I’ve been paying attention to the damn things ever since Lucas Ossendrijver of Lanvin attempted to bring them back for spring/summer ‘08. It didn’t catch on, but that does not stop me fantisizing about the fuckers. I am afraid I don’t do much sea sailing or other type of extreme sports that could possibly justify attaching a stupid string to my sunglasses, but ever since it became acceptable to own and wear wax coats even when don’t even know what the countryside looks or smells like… I figure I’d probably get away with it anyway. Who needs a proper reason when you can do things for affect?

Try to imagine the silly strap attached to an oversized and overpriced piece of acetate, with mirrors for lenses and an once aspirational (now mostly forgotten) logo on the sides. One that yuppie and preppy scum used to adore, ‘t was a skiing thing. Do you picture a pair of (unisex) Vuarnet 002? The ones from that Ingrid Boulting picture from 1985? Worn perhaps with some type of double breasted blazer combination or maybe a grossly outmoded and hopelessly inappropriate pinstriped powersuit. You do? And you kinda-sorta like it? Congratulations, you just might be another degenerate - just like me.

Day Dress

Adrian

1944

After working very successfully in Hollywood for MGM, Gilbert Adrian created his ready to wear and custom labels starting in 1942 (Beverly Hills). For the next ten years Adrian often referenced his best known film designs into his ready to wear and custom couture. This two tone black and red cotton gingham afternoon dress (photographed and published by Vogue, 1944) draws heavily from the iconic gingham dress worn by Judy Garland as “Dorothy” from The Wizard of Oz.

Exposed: A History of Lingerie charts how designers responded to feminist demands for better underwear over 300 years of ill-fitting, freeform, and racy lingerie. 

“Burn up the corsets!” clothing reform activist Elizabeth Stuart Phelps wrote in 1873. “Make a bonfire of the cruel steel that has lorded it over the contents of the abdomen and thorax for so many years and heave a sigh of relief: for your ‘emancipation,’ I assure you, has from this moment begun.”

We have feminism to thank for making our underwear more comfortable, a truth that’s clearly reflected in Exposed: A History of Lingerie, now on view at the Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). The more than 70 pieces on view, from the 18th century to today—from girdles to the “no-bra” bras of the ‘60s—track the social and sexual mores of different eras through the lingerie that women wore. The show also reveals how designers (thank goodness) responded in very tactile ways to feminist demands for less oppressive underwear.
