Sex Is Back In Fashion – But This Time, It’s On Our Terms
Marta Jakubowski’s confident, carefree beach babes (inspired by the designer’s trips to Ibiza this summer) had a more casual vibe: easy tonal day dresses slashed in horizontal sections to flash glimpses of skin, and slinky black evening gowns built from modular sections held loosely in place by spaghetti straps and crossed fingers. There was a lazy-day sensuality to the collection, but Jakubowski had women’s practical needs in mind, too. Teaming up with lingerie brand Chantelle, the models wore their ‘soft stretch’ line as a comfortable base layer, and one model, who is a mother,
walked wearing an Elvie Pump, the world’s first silent wearable breast pump. “A lot of women around me have changed the way they’re dressing,” Jakubowski tells Refinery29. “They seem to be more confident and celebrate their body, which I think is a great movement. Women dress for themselves these days…I think it’s a new way of power dressing.”
