Sheer Elements

HARKING BACK TO THE DELIGHTFUL DAYS OF SUMMER WHERE YOUR WARDROBE WAS SET TO LURE ANY PASSING SUMMER BREEZE TO RIPPLE THROUGH LIGHT AND SHEER MATERIALS, DESIGNERS HAVE SUMMONED UP TRANSPARENT FABRICS FOR FALL AND WINTER AS WELL, INVITING YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN A GAME OF TEMPERATURE DEFYING PEEK-A-BOO.

Just as Marie Antoinette set all of Paris on fire with her sheer Chemise a la Reine dress in 1783, incorporating a bit of barely covered nudity in your look these days will still definitely add a certain level furore to your appearance. Marc Jacobs’ use of transparent fabric enhanced with just the slightest touch of embroidery leaves little to the imagination. Valentino is slightly more contained, showcasing a beautiful bright-red flowing gown fired-up with a sheer top. Presented to us on the runway, these dresses are definitely sexy but also delicate, encasing waiflike bodies as if they were figurines in a delicate display case of lucent fabric.

If you would like to play the transparency game but not show all your prized possessions in one go, you might want to look towards Rodarte, Isabel Marant or Ann Demeulemeester, all of whom incorporate sheer elements in their collections this season creating dresses that are enticing, delicate and playful.
