Everyone Is Talking About These Denim Bustiers in Paris

It seems like everything Virgil Abloh does garners a buzz, and perhaps the buzziest look from his Off-White show in Paris was a bustier top and matching mini shorts dreamed up in pale blue tapestry denim that Bella Hadid wore to open the show. With a crisp white button-down top tucked underneath the bustier, it’s a styling trick we’re sure to see repeated everywhere soon. And the theme of the show? “West Village,” which Virgil Abloh attributes to Sex and the City and a present-day version of Carrie Bradshaw as his muse. And we can certainly envision Bradshaw walking down Bleecker Street in the very bustier, short shorts, and button-down top Hadid wore—perhaps with the boots swapped out for heels.
