The world of fashion goes retro to flower power when the times are harsh. The world of lingerie is reflecting SM in our time when we look at Agent Provocateur. Beauty as power. Sign of the time too. Very contradicting but expression for what we wish for and what we see as real. Truth hurts…? The whole underwear issue is so difficult because of Love Sex and Money. Who can tell it apart? Trendy fashionista give loud statements that are totally different from the world of hints and anticipation that makes a woman a riddle and erotic in an old fashioned way. I have now clue how modernistic designs can help to sell traditional lace. Your writing reflect about the dazed and confused. That is how it is but I don’t know if they discuss this in Triumphs marketing department.
