VICTORIA AND ALBERT’S UNDRESSED

As yesterday was dedicated to light art, today is dedicated to lingerie. First we learned the Naomi Campbell had launched her first and very exclusive capsule collection with Italian underwear company Yamamay and now we are told that the Victoria and Albert Museum in London is planning a very “undressed” exhibition. Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear is set to launch April 16, 2016 as reported by WWD.

The exhibition, curated by Edwina Ehrman and sponsored by Agent Provocateur and Revlon, will address the practicalities of underwear and its role in the fashionable wardrobe whilst highlighting its sensual, sexual appeal.The exhibition will explore dress reformers and designers who argued for the beauty of the natural body, as well as entrepreneurs, inventors and innovators who have played a critical role in the development of increasingly more effective and comfortable underwear.
