The lacy underwear

By spotogspindel | December 7, 2014

What is this, you say? Lacy underwear? Where? All I can see are two men! Two men? What are they doing here?


No, there are more! Many more!


Freestyle machine-embroidered faces. Some with beards, some with glasses, some with mustaches, some bald, all men.


Why, it´s a bra! From a distance it may look like your ordinary black, lace bra. But up close you see all the male faces. They´ve all been embroidered freestyle on water-soluble fabric, pieced together into this delicate piece of underwear.


Even the straps are all male faces, one on top of the other.


What are all the men doing on a piece of female underwear, you ask? Well. My initial question was: who is all this so called sexy underwear for? Is it primarily a practical clothing for the wearer, or is it first and foremost a temptation for the admirers of the wearer? (I guess you can tell what my answer would be!)


Making lace by working with freestyle machine embroidery on water-soluble fabric was the self-chosen theme at the Textile Culture course. This undergarment is the final project in my experimentation, and also my exam.
