Spring 2011 Trend: Boob Patches


If fashion seasons are evolutions of one another, it would make sense for breasts to be a focal point of the spring 2011 season. They figured prominently into the fall 2010 season, spilling over hemlines on two of that season's most important runways, Prada and Louis Vuitton. This season, many designers chose to draw attention to breasts, but in a different way — with boob patches: contrasting bits of fabric or patterns placed strategically over the nipple and breast area as though to draw the eye directly to that region. But what woman wants to walk around with her nipples or breasts immortalized on her top or dress in pattern or color form? Click ahead to see some key boob patches of the spring 2011 season.
