Synopsis: Get intimately acquainted with the V&A?s world-renowned collection of undergarments in this eye-opening visual history. From camisoles to corsets, basques to boudoir caps, Underwear: Fashion in Detail traces the peculiar evolution of underwear. Revealing photographs highlight close-up details in the garments, while intricate line drawings show their masterly construction. A wide range of designs is represented, from rare 16th-century examples to Dior?s curvaceous New Look, to Calvin Klein?s notorious briefs.

About the Author: Eleri Lynn is a fashion curator at the V&A and was the assistant curator of the V&A?s major exhibition The Golden Age of Couture (V&A 2007). She contributed to the accompanying book of that title.
