There are a few times a year when the breast really gets her time to shine. Couture week is undoubtedly one of them, as is pretty much any fashion week (but I digress).
This fashion week brings up a lot of particularly memorable moments. This is obviously the first season since Raf Simmons resigned from Dior, and subsequently we're seeing an interesting yet youthfully awesome pop of RTW on a couture runway. We’re also seeing upstart designers like Aouadi make their obvious nods to greats (ahem, Chanel), but still completely nail craft, construction, and originality. Then in Chanel fashion, Karl Lagerfeld outdoes every show every time.
However, we’re here to discuss the true most important thing that has graced our vision so far on the S’16 couture runway. Yes, that thing is the boob tutu by Giambattista Valli.
There is something striking yet subtly palatable about a boob tutu. Much like a ballerina, the breasts get to wear something that is demure and feminine. They’re revealing themselves, but differently. Like a dancer on stage, the boob tutu allows the breasts to command their path down the runway. To dance their dance.
The tutu and ruffled breast details didn’t end at Giambattista Valli. It is imperative that we mention that all boob couture is created equal. Lest we forget all of the other crucial breast accoutrements, we have the boob sparkle from Dior, the boob tassle from Chanel, and the tiered boob skirt from Armani Privé respectively.
Does all this boob detailing mean that breasts are the new hips?
We’re not sure about this, but we’re compelled to at least ask the question. Nonetheless, we are now on the hunt for our non-couture version (read: high street version) of boob tutus.
