We thought this
choker adorning a bygone Dior advertisement
Bobi found this interesting "face corset"
"...and a matching corset would look good. I like the design of this neck corset, with its under-the-shoulders connection - would be delightfully restrictive, good for the diet too!"
Chris A. submits these
"The neck corset
above is from the design team Schipper/Arques, who also produced these, which are
enlargeable). Below is an extract from their
girl born in a wealthy former planter family is
raised by her Creole nanny in the deep south of the
USA. In her family women are expected to
permanently wear restrictive, body correcting
shoulder braces, strapping back her shoulders to
obtain a slim Victorian silhouette and a stiff
headpiece to keep an upright posture.
The Schipper/Arques collection for fall/winter 2009 was inspired by the welsh myth of ‘Blodeuwedd’: In Welsh mythology Blodeuwedd (‘blodeu’: flowers, blossoms – ‘gwedd’: face) is a woman made from nine different flowers by Mathonwy and Gwydion. After having her husband killed by her lover, she is turned into an owl so she will never show her face to the light of day and all other creatures will be hostile to her. One of the main goals for the collection was to have an understated luxury feel, to capture the spirit of Blodeuwedd, mixing subtle and beautiful with the unpredictable and severe.
The cut is either very dominant to the body or extremely submissive, creating a contrast between ‘clothes that wear ’ and ‘clothes being worn’. Bust and waist cinching corsets, narrow shoulders and shortened sleeves evoke a girlish image counterbalanced by sculpted and architectural shapes. Key colour combinations are black and chestnut
Two rather divergent and interesting neck
The image at left is apparently an artistic piece
Gabriel (June 2013):
"I’m very lucky and
thankful to know the beautiful Daphne
Guinness [artist and vocalist].
Last week she showed me her new music video (which I love! The video and the music are all good ! She rocks!!)
"This new track, called
Fatal Flaw, is
available right here.
"Then, as I was showing this video to a friend, I noticed she’s been wearing a neck piece I did for her.
I guess she likes this little Maison Moginot neck piece then.<g>"
