Alexander Wang & Phillip Lim Launch Lingerie Lines
The underwear as outerwear trend is about to get a whole lot more exciting thanks to Alexander Wang and Phillip Lim. While each of the designers’ respective namesake houses going strong, Wang and Lim have decided get into undergarments. Lim’s new bra, panty and camisoles line is appropriate titled ‘initials’ (as in the first layer of fabric to hit the body). According to W, Lim is keeping the line simple, and unadulterated with embellishment or over-the-top styles. “What we love about it is that it’s something a girl can wear without feeling like she’s trying too hard.”
Meanwhile, Wang is following suit. As part of an expansion of his lower-priced line T by Alexander Wang, the designer is introducing a few select bras on his eponymous website. “The pieces are ‘definitely intended to be seen’ and run from $48 to $72,” says Fashionologie. The bottom line: exposed undergarments isn’t a trend that’s likely to go into hiding anytime soon.
