You may be shocked to learn that Fausto Puglisi is a man. He also seems to be somewhat unfamiliar with the concept of breasts. Like for example, this “harness bra” (LOL) may have been manufactured by Tuscan saddlemakers, but that doesn’t mean it’s very well-designed as an item of boob regalia. Don’t get me wrong! It looks pretty cool, in a bondage/punk kinda way. But there are some things that are just so uncomfortable-looking that, even as a fashion nerd, I have to take a step back and say, “Steady on, pal.”
First of all, only a tiny fraction of the female population are flat-chested enough for this whole harness bra idea to be a remotely plausible life choice. Secondly, why would you put a tight leather buckle strap directly over your nipples? I guess it would be slightly better if worn over a shirt, but I’m pretty sure that would be the socks-and-sandles of the bra world, and therefore kind of a faux pas. — Spring 2014 Fashion Week: Victoria Beckham, Fausto Puglisi, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, and Chris Kane at HelloTailor.
