Rooted in THE ORDER’s overlapping territory of vulnerability and empowerment, the SS 2017 collection of lingerie, sportswear and ready-to-wear unifies opposites within strong, timeless feminine statements that are both sexy and quintessentially bold. Restrained to an all-black chromatic scheme, each piece embraces classic silhouettes that are merged with a sexy, provocative use of material. Mesh, semi-sheer and structured paneling are compositional elements that bring moments of exposure to the collection’s line of bodysuits, slips, bralettes, knickers and tops. Each piece balances this sense of provocation with elegance,seen in the collection’s expert detailing that uses suede, satin, ribbon ties and knit paneling to complement the fit on the female body. Designed and produced in the U.S., the durability and construction of each piece is a further aspect of the strength and empowerment channeled into the collection’s conception of intimate womenswear. Just as THE ORDER is about the strength and elegance of the female form, the SS 17 collection is further testament to balancing restraint with revelation.
