Trichophilia: A Celebration of Body Hair by Mandy Roos

trichophilia-designboom-02

Designer Mandy Roos  has created a series called, “Trichophilia”, a fashion collection that celebrates body hair on the female body. Her series suggests leaving armpit hair, and pubic hair, and other areas unkempt to break the taboo about the natural state of the body. The series of underwear and bras were named after Trichophilia, a term used to describe the fetishism of hair. The “hair” on each piece is actually yarn, and it’s knitted and woven to simulate public, armpit and chest hair. The series was created for her graduate project at the  Design Academy Eindhoven, and includes: the Golden Rainbow Hairy High-waist Panties, Short Fizzy Hair Booty Briefs, Curly Armpit Hair Bra, and more. Check out more from the series below.
