At first glance, my outfit to the left seems pretty innocuous, right? Right! I’m all about good, clean fun, but a little bit of tongue-in-chic raunch can do no harm. So if you look closer (second pic) and you can see that my skirt is, upon further inspection, PG-13 worthy. Yep, nude art nouveau ladies galore here, and I’m darn proud of it.
It seems like nudity-on-clothing is an obscure but growing trend in fashion today. A look to the runway confirms it. Miuccia Prada, patron saint of envelope-pushing fashion sent models clad in ensembles chock-full of naked ladies down the Miu Miu’s S/S 10 runway amongst tamer kitties and birds.
And of course, we’ve also seen the fine stylings of Susie Bubble, who managed to convince us of the wearability of even penis-printed tights . The same goes for her Luxirare trompe l’oeil nipple jacket, which is the perfect alternative to going out in your birthday suit.
However, every trend has its dark side, this one being a certain ($500) Agent Provocateur penis-sweater complete with a logo in your favorite male bodily fluid that was provocative enough (in a negative way, mind you) to appear as a topic in the Chictopia forums and The Cut. Needless to say, I will NOT be running out to buy that particular garment for too many reasons to list.
So what do you think? Great new trend or pray it will end? Regardless, I’m amused by the idea of printing nudity on the very objects that keep us from it.
