The corset

October 15, 2010

For centuries, stays and corsets moulded the female torso into the current fashionable shape.

By the 1880s the corset had become a very elegant and desirable object in a woman’s wardrobe and much attention paid to its design and execution.

Visíveis Virtudes has found two reasons to have the corset as its first collection’s masterpiece. One is because, from cage crinolines to bustles and body-hugging corsets, it was often the structures worn under clothes which gave Victorian fashion its form. Second, corsets were seen all over the catwalks for the last two years. Have a taste of its sweet transgression.

O corset

Por séculos, os corsets moldaram o corpo feminino na forma da moda da época.

A partir da década de 1880, tornaram-se um elegante objeto de desejo no guarda-roupa feminino, recebendo maior valorização no design e criação.

Visíveis Virtudes encontrou duas razões para eleger o corset como obra-prima dessa primeira coleção. Uma porque era a estrutura oculta que deu à moda vitoriana sua forma. Em segundo lugar, corsets foram vistos na maioria dos desfiles dos últmos dois anos. Prove da sua doce transgressão.
