So I’ve been sick all day & decided to do research on one of my favorite items, thought I’d share with y’all. 🤷🏽♂️ Issey Miyake bustier made of enamel from his Autumn Winter 1980 collection “Plastic Body” (part of a collection of work titled “Body Series” made between 1980-85). This particular piece has been worn by Grace Jones, Lisa Lyon (female bodybuilder pioneer), & Kylie Jenner for various shoots and performances over the years. There’s a TV interview wherein Grace Jones tries to sit down while wearing a blue Issey bustier and she has to pop it off because she can’t bend, it’s hilarious.
However, finding one of these is damn near impossible, the last bustier sold at auction in 2014 for a cool $48,000 USD. This piece and McQueen’s Armadillo shoes from SS10 will haunt me till the day I die. 📚 🌈 ⭐️ #pechugavintage#themoreyouknow
This is so cool! My Vivienne Westwood corset from AW 1992 “Always on Camera” seen in @iamkelseylu’s newest music video, “Due West”. Styled and co-directed by @mindy_le_brock (thank you, Mindy!) & @carastricker . This corset was another one of those “gotcha” moments for me (and yes it’s already sold- 🙈). #pechugavintage
