Lace up: The corset is back in fashion. Its most striking feature is the lacing by means of a cord pulled through eyelets or holes. However, this element is no longer only used as a closing method; lacing stanchions are placed at all strategically important points of the clothing. In the pleated trousers shown here, the fly serves as a stylish alternative to the zipper.
