Inspiration: Pina

Slips figure prominently in the inspiring work of modern dance master Pina Bausch.

In search of inspiration? For design, for lingerie, for life: Head to your nearest indie movie theater and watch the documentary/performance film Pina 3D. Wim Wenders’ posthumous homage to masterful modern dancer Pina Bausch, the film features exhilarating, edge-of-your-seat performances of the choreographer’s most iconic works. All in stunning 3D.

Pina is a series of arresting, often surreal images (this is Wenders + Bausch, after all) that linger long after the film is over. Costumes play a major role in the dazzling aesthetics, as well as the emotional pull of the movie and Bausch’s work, in general. The major centerpiece? The slip. Who knew such a a spare, minimalist undergarment could create such sinuous movement and airy decadence? Ranging from sun-baked nudes to dusty pastels, in floor-grazing bias cuts and buoyant trapezes, the slip proves its functional elegance and timeless beauty yet again.
