Inspired by the haute couture collections, lingerie designers offer for 2010 a variety of hot and extremely flattering styles in the fetish vein, and have a new take on the vintage style, which, as we know, is never getting old.

Fetish Chic

The fetish elements have trickled to the new lingerie collection from the haute couture catwalks: the most reputable designers took to provocative styles for inspiration to reinterpret the fetish chic in their creations. As it turned out, abundant metal detail, plenty of leather and latex are good both in fashion clothing and lingerie. For example, Agent Provocateur's latest lingerie collection is based around the interplay of seductive and delicate lace and blatantly erotic detail suggestive of fetish style: sumptuous satin bustiers, delicate lace trim, and stockings and garter belts. Moreover, bringing the fetish chic to the utmost, bustiers from the new Soiree line by Agent Provocateur are embellished with metal studs. Another British brand, Bordelle, used fetish chic motives to turn its lingerie into pieces of art: Bordelle lingerie collection included intricately cut black bustiers with decorative zippers and metal accents.

Vintage Look

Although vintage style as such is never obsolete, vintage-inspired look is especially hot for 2010. Many lingerie collections, from Stella McCartney to La Perla, from Kate Moss (Topshop collection) anf Dita Von Teese (Wonderbra collection) include vintage elements. Stella McCartney's lingerie line featured best specimens of retro style: lightweight slips, comfortable silk panties with lace trim, all distinguished by recognizable vintage cut. As McCartney's said, her collection was inspired by 1920's and 1950's fashion trends. Her lingerie collection challenges the widespread belief that comfy underwear cannot be sexy and tempting.

British supermodel Kate Moss, a known vintage junkie, added a line of retro-styled lingerie pieces to her collection for Topshop, while Dita Von Teese, the famous burlesque dancer, chose vintage glamour of 1940' and 1950' as a main source of inspiration for her collection for Wonderbra.

Underwear as Outerwear

A noteworthy trend, present in many designer collections, is «underwear as outerwear» look. For instance, a bustier is coming into limelight as one of this season's wardrobe staples, making a transition from lingerie to outerwear. Dolce & Gabbana and Bottega Veneta combine simple bustiers in neutral shades with skirts and pants, while John Galliano whose collection for Christian Dior is all about elegance and seduction, presented a line of chic bustiers with delicate lace trim in contrasting colors, combining them with satin skirts. Underwear as outerwear trend is really going to blow up this spring, lingerie inspired looks have been all over the catwalk from Dior to Proenza Schouler.

Bold Colors

Along with timeless colors - black, white and nude - many lingerie collections for 2010 included pieces in rainbow shades. The hottest colors include rich jewel tones - ruby, emerald, and amethyst. Victoria's Secret's collection included lingerie pieces in fuchsia pink and chocolate browns, and lace panties and matching bra with leopard print which will make you feel sexy, no matter how many layers you are wearing.
