The autumn/winter 09 haute couture shows have been taking place in Paris this week, so here's a pic of the Georges Chakra catwalk to get us in the mood. What's news? The Christian Lacroix show - possibly his last - was an emotional affair, says the Wall Street Journal; and of interest to all us lingerie fans was the Christian Dior runway. It was a riot of lingerie influences, reports the Daily Telegraph, with suspender-style straps adorning even the shoes.
If all this has given you a yen for some vintage-style lingerie, then fear not; figleaves.com has plenty. Check out our suspenders; or treat yourself to this rather couture-like Aubade set, complete with retro waist cincher.
