When talking to Vogue via email, Gaguech said she does like bare underwear The visual beauty. But she worried that such an expression might cause all kinds of complicated reactions. “I’d love to wear it outside, but even with a coat, I don’t know if I’ll be 100 100 percent comfortable,” she says.
Still, she thinks there are already more conservative or hedged versions of getting up in the wild. “Sportshorts, thermals and sneakers are not too far from the Miu Miu look,” Gaguech said. “But will we end up on the streets in underwear? I don’t think so. But I do think skirts and shorts will be shorter.” In short, the line between underwear and outerwear—at least from a tailoring standpoint— — will be more blurred.
This works in both womenswear and menswear. On the female side, the corset, historically considered the most intimate form of intimate clothing, has become a versatile piece of clothing today. They can be spotted on Saturday nights at the sold-out stages of Blackpink, Dua Lipa and others inside clubs, or even at brunch one or two if the style is right. While menswear is increasingly embracing shorts, Paul Mescal and Donald Glover were notable early adopters, and various menswear labels are now effectively launching pieces that are even shorter than standard boxer shorts.
We may not literally peel off to skivvies like Lil Nas X and Julie Fox, but we’re testing the limits together.
