Not since the introduction of underwear has anyone really solved the age old dilemma of what the Daily Mail calls, “the curse of women throughout the ages - the dreaded VPL (Visible Panty Line)”. The case of “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”, is evident from the advent of the “Show us your Underalls” days.
According to statistics provided by Trend de la Creme, while Debenham’s of the UK’s “invisible knickers”, are selling like hot cakes, some designers just choose to forgo trying to hide what we have been trying to do forever. They’ve chosen to showcase their designs by having models let it all hang out, or at least let it show through. Though it would take a brave soul and a smoking bod to pull it off, some of the designs do somehow work.
Featured in the gallery are designs by Sonia Rykiel, Jaeger, London, Christian Dior, Custo Barcelona, Jasper Conran, Jean Paul Gaultier, Toni Maticevski, Armand Basi One, Zac Posen, Alessandro Dellacqua, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Ann-Sofie Back, Roberto Cavalli, Temperley London, Rock & Republic and Todd Lynn.
