The evolv­ing con­cept of un­der­wear as out­er­wear. Fash­ion has re­turned to this idea againanda­gainsincethe18th­cen­tury,an­dit­no­longer­tend­sto­havethe­p­ow­er­toshock. I think that could be a very ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ment – to rein ect that spark of the un­ex­pected by merg­ing rather than con­trast­ing un­der and out­er­wear. I think we are tired of over­ex­po­sure – what works now are de­signs which give you ust a glimpse of some­thing you did not ex­pect to see. Un­dressed: A Brief His­tory of Un­der­wear spon­sored by Agent Provo­ca­teur and Revlon runs from 16 April 2016 to 12 March 2017 at the V&A Mu­seum in Lon­don.
