Bare Necessities

Models of all shapes, sizes, colors and even genders kept crowds buzzing and cheering on the weekend as Lingerie Fashion Week returned to New York with two days of runway shows and fashion presentations.

Held for the first time outside of womenswear fashion week, the latest version of LFW was a cliché-busting triumph of diversity and (sometimes unexpected) style.

Models hit the stage on skateboards, posed with BDSM accessories and performed mini-burlesque stripteases. There were brides in bloomers, two brands sent men down the fashion runway and one newcomer, the fetish-themed Love Cage, brought along its own dungeonmaster. That is what he was there for, right?

This edition of Lingerie Fashion Week showcased styles from the participating brands’ upcoming SS15 collection, and included stand-alone previews from a host of emerging designers and British labels that are new to North America.

And the event was not without some social commentary. The most poignant, and relevant, moment was offered by gay-friendly brand Play Out, which sent one of its male models down the runway inked with a tattoo that read “No Pain Is Forever”.

Below is a sample of highlights from the event. Individual galleries for the participating brands will follow.
