Evolutionary Corsets
The Hubert Barrere Corset Collection Tells the Story of the Undergarment

By: Corinne Guirgis (Star) Jul 2, 11

Over time, the corset has evolved from a mandatory staple in every woman’s wardrobe to a decorative undergarment and finally to a hot-ticket outdoor fashion, and the Hubert Barrere Corset collection tracks this evolution with a series of iconically artistic corset designs. Barrere has teamed up with art critic Charles-Arthur Boyer to tell this story using photographs of the famed French designer’s signature pieces. Barrere is a respected designer whose artful designs have earned him collaborations with fashion houses like Dior, Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana.

Corsets make regular appearances on high-fashion runways across the world and have been showing up even more frequently in designer collections; they’re famously used in the costumes designed by the likes of Alexander McQueen, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Stella McCartnery and John Galliano.
