At Cavalli: Seeing London and France In Milan
Many a street-wear trend has made it to the runway—military jackets, slashed jeans, sweatpants. But somehow the idea of visible boxer-brief waistbands over low-slung pants is one that’s never really been embraced. Go figure. That is, until Roberto Cavalli’s softly pretty, vintage-inspired show earlier today, where the designer showed loose-waisted palazzo pants with pretty floral underpants that had fine elastic edging peeping overtop. It’s certainly a new way to do the old underwear-as-outerwear thing. And now it seems that Ms. Prada has some company in the Milan chapter of the I Like Knickers fan club.
