The Bridgerton Chroniclesthe Netflix series that influences fashion trends

Seasonal recurrence obliges, summer trends are starting to blossom. All in all, although several ready-to-wear brands have not yet taken into account the return of The Bridgerton Chroniclesthis should not take long, given the inevitable excitement that this third chapter of the novels of Julia Quinn.

Indeed, although it is rarely on sale in stores, this dress, directly inspired by Regencycore, promises to reappear by summer. Very soon, the ABC of dresses will even devote a specific page to this tendency directly from the stylistic archives: the corset dress.

The corset dress will dethrone all other dresses this summer 2024

Despite the reluctance of some fashionistas, the style of the English Regency will fascinate viewers of the series which highlights the outfits of London’s high society, during the reign of King George III and Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Although it is well known that series inspire the next trends, The Bridgerton Chronicles does not break this rule, quite the contrary, as proven by the return of corseted dress which we see several times on actresses.

Alongside the empire dress, which appeared in France at the end of the 18th century under the aegis of Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, the corseted dress, for its part, is adorned, as its name suggests, with a corset, a signature element of its aesthetic. An anachronistic dress, which luxury houses, high-end brands, small designers and fast fashion labels are reissuing for summer 2024.

My favorite corset dresses as a fashion journalist

Appearing in Antiquity, the corset really took the form we know in the Middle Ages. Popularized from the Renaissance in Western Europe, it was ultimately during the English Regency (1811-1820), the era during which the Netflix series takes place, the corset gained notoriety. After reaching its peak during the Victorian era in the 19th century, the corset subtly metamorphosed until it was eventually forgotten.

We owe the paternity of this disinterestedness of the corset mainly to Paul Poiret (1879-1944) who had given up on incorporating it into his collections, having the idea of ​​modifying the support points and hoisting the belt of dresses under the chest by freeing it, which was usually stifled in restrictive corsets . Fortunately, nowadays, corsets and corseted dressesare pleasant to wear, as evidenced by the models currently flourishing at Reformation, Phème Paris, Sézane, House of Cb and Abercrombie & Fitch.
