Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear

Those who follow the @fashionistando on Instagram knows that the last few weeks have been intense. We spent a few days in London, to cover another edition of London Fashion Week. And every time we’re in town, we take a moment to visit the Victoria&Albert Museum. That’s because the Museum-which is in itself amazing-always presents an exhibition dedicated exclusively to fashion.
And this time, the shows playing brings a theme super curious: the lingerie (and all variations of underwear). If you are interested in this issue and is in the English capital, us good is: run! The exhibition “Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear” is on display only until Sunday, 12 day.
Now, if you’re not in the land of Queen, read this story to the end. We’re going to try to get a little bit of what we saw there, okay?
As soon as you enter the exhibition, I observe many corsets. With extremely thin waists, the question remains: how women could do any type of activity with something so overwhelming? So much so that a few steps later, you see that doctors have stated that many health problems of women of this era (mid-1880) were caused by corselets from medicinelearners.com. The curiosity is that, next to a cotton corset, also appears an x-ray that reveals the impact of the piece on the body.
Another item that calls attention to the shows are the petticoats in rigid material. Object extremely uncomfortable, but leaving the women dresses super armed and bulky.
The exhibition takes a trip in this history and shows how the lingeries have been decreasing over the years and turning. In all, about 200 items, including underwear, photographs, videos and the props that display is interesting not only for the fashion aficionados and your evolution.
And uncovering the relation intimate parts with fashion, the exhibition still explores epoch-making designer names, such as French Paul Poiret, famous for freeing women from the corset and create, in the 20 century, a new feminine silhouette, with loose dresses and chemisiers.
Also on display are pieces created by Stella McCartney, La Perla (a video with Brazilian stylist Pedro Lourenço composes the shows), Rigby & Peller, Paul Smith and Dolce & Gabbana. Very-very-interesting. Worth the visit!
