NYFW 2015: Nudity Trend

Every time there’s a fashion week, I’m eager to see the new trends.  I’m used to being amazed or shocked by the incredible and original designs that grace the runways.  But I was a little bit more surprised than usual today when I researched some new trends from the runway shows.

Nudity.  No, I’m not referring to scandalous cleavage, or extra short dresses.  In fact, it’s not the woman being exposed on the New York runways; it’s the man.

A model’s hand took the place of pants in MT Costello’s runway show.  If this trend is suggesting that full nudity is on the rise, then what will stores sell?  Will pants one day be obsolete?  Realistically no, but nonetheless this nudity trend must mean something.

Not only did we see a full frontal in the MT Costello runway show, we also got a generous backside view.  See exhibit B below.

An article in Cosmopolitan suggests that the future may hold “peekaboo pants.”  Isn’t that an oxymoron?  Aren’t pants meant to cover not reveal? I guess guys wearing pants that fall below their butt and reveal their boxers, was just not enough.  I love that we live in a time when everyone is trying to come up with the next best thing, but who knew that perhaps less is more…

I’d love to hear what you think about this runway trend.  Share in the comments below!
