FW Trend Watch: Layered Bustiers

L-R: Jacquemus; J.W. Anderson; Marni

Bustiers layered over or inlaid in modest tops were a mini trend seen prominently at J.W. Anderson, Yang Li, and Iris van Herpen. Each of the designers matched this pairing with long, bulky, monochromatic skirts for a commanding overall look. At Jacquemus and Marni the layered bustiers and bandeaus were one-offs, but styled in a strikingly similar way with baggy skirts and practical shoes. The  usual vampy sex appeal of corseting details is absorbed by layers of rigid  fabrics in each of the designers’ efforts. Even Jaqcuemus’ more youthful rendition sees a sheer fabric underlay take the form of a billowing turtleneck that does not distract from an overall  minimalist slacker vibe.
