Showing skin

Garments that show midriff are banned at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup.

This season it’s probably one of two of the 11 strict dress regulations that could trip fashionistas up.

The other banned item that is currently fashionable is a playsuit, which we argue could be delightfully chic.

We’re on the side of Victoria Racing Club when it comes to midriff baring tops. Crop tops are mostly not chic nor appropriate though there are, of course, always exceptions to the rule.

Skin revealing garments proliferated the catwalks during the recent spring/summer 2015 collections showings in New York, London, Milan and Paris.

And, as many demonstrated, baring a little bit of skin can be sophisticated as well as sexy.

Issey Miyake SS15 – Paris Fashion Week

Issey Miyake Spring Summer 2015 show bought a unique blend of innovation, colour and technical excellence to the runway at the Place de la Concorde in the centre of Paris. Models floated like coloured clouds  in a show entitled WINDSCAPE, that showcased the creative power of wind.

Artist Ei Wada, a member of the Open Reel Ensemble, used helium balloons attached to the ends of magnetic tape, similar to those found old-style tape recorders and created a fun sense of play as models strolled down the catwalk in multiple numbers.

The ‘stream-stretch’ technology, developed by Issey Myake, and born from the tradition of pleats and A-POC,  is neither knitwear nor pleats but starts with a single piece of cloth into which ‘creases’ have been incorporated in a fine detailed design process.

As wafts of colours streamed down the runway, some models with hats looked as though the wind had grabbed them and wanted to take off.

The new season with Issey Miyake is fun and confident with truly beautiful silhouettes and must have pieces for the new season.
