Runway Intimate Update: Milan
By Anna Glassman

Milan’s leading designers showcased sophisticated lingerie looks on the runway over the weekend.

Feb 27, 2012


The Fall/Winter season is normally not conducive to baring one’s skivvies, but some leading designers in Milan showed us over the weekend how to do it with style and sophistication to spare. From left to right: Raf Simons took his final bow at Jil Sander with an incredibly moving collection that went against the grain of typical winter dressing, yet looked fresher and more forward than anything else this season. Filled with pretty pastels, buoyant peignoir-like coats, engineered knit corsets and liquid-silk slips that slinked around the body, Simons’ collection was at once demure and entirely seductive. Marni designer Consuelo Castigilioni presented a charming take on the pajama set in the way only she can do with girlish proportions and playful doodles. And finally, Dolce & Gabbana refreshed their usual retro-inspired underpinnings with ornate needlework florals, built-out hips and luxurious Spanish laces. And did we mention the socks? Gold passementerie appliqu├ęs, black lace ankle socks and semi-sheer ribbed thigh-highs amped the glamour factor in the collection well past 11.
