DKNY and Donna Karan Intimates Does ’50s Glam

Loyal to glam garments from eras past, we here at V.S. are equally enthralled when contemporary lines manage to capture a bit of vintage essence. The latest lacy underpinnings from DKNY and Donna Karan Intimates pay homage to ‘50s lingerie, upping the line’s allure and differentiating them from a sea of ubiquitous cotton whites.

While you won’t find any sharply-defined bullet bras or elaborate corsets among this set, we’re keen on the high-waisted (and conveniently waist-nipping) bottoms and simple, yet elegant, curve-hugging one pieces. If you’re not quite ready to don cabaret knickers yet, this line could be a good stepping stone as you build up the gall to give saucy vintage wares a whirl. Plus, they’re not overtly constrictive, which is always a huge plus so as to not spend an evening tugging and squirming beneath your body-con dress. (Trust us; we’ve been there, and it’s not very becoming.)

In London, you can find these throwback pieces of lingerie at:
