They are worn next to the skin. We say “underwear” for men and “lingerie” for women… When did the underwear appear? Why did they impose themselves? How did they evolve?
A social story is looming: the undersides tell a lot about fashions and the changes that accompany them. Crinoline, bustle, corset, jumpsuit, panties, garter … So many words that conceal mysteries carefully hidden for centuries!
The Château et musée de Valangin is pleased to lift the veil on a small part of its textile collections. Through more than two centuries and fifty underwear, it is an invitation to discover the underside of history that promises to make children and adults smile!
