In various shapes and sizes, quite a few menswear collections showed off a V shaped waistline for ss2011, revealing the abs beneath... Is this the start of a trend similar to the 90s teenage-girl short tops?
Probably not, but I love how it plays with the shape of the clothing, how the focus goes from the face to the centre of the figure (the tummy button!). That small patch of bare skin just changes how the entire outfit works. Even Armani, just with a shirtless model and an unbuttoned jacket sports the feature. It makes any menswear more enticing and interesting - at least taken in opposition to a straight cut waistline!
