40 Posh Peplum Designs

From Modern Pin-Up Couture to Elegant Eastern Styles

— October 5, 2012 — Pop Culture
This collection of posh peplum designs point to the fashion world's growing infatuation with the current cut. The gathering in and subsequent jutting out of fabric at the waist has a remarkable slimming effect, and is also pleasing to the eye.

The benefits that abound the peplum fit account for its rampant spread within the houses of Christian Dior, Kenzo and Mary Katrantzou. These couture brands have responded to heady demands and to their own artistic teams, releasing modern pin-up couture pieces and elegant Eastern styles in turn.

While dresses and skirts have long been the primary targets, posh peplum pants, suits and accessories have been for the most part ignored, leaving a wealth of patterns and textiles to still be explored.
