The Underpinnings Museum: Lingerie For Your Hair: Can Hats Be Underwear?
A printed catalogue for The Underpinnings Museum’s exhibition, ‘Lingerie For Your Hair: Can Hats Be Underwear?’.
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
‘Lingerie For Your Hair’ examines the boudoir cap, an oft-neglected piece of lingerie with immense historical significance. The garment saw immense popularity in the 1910s and 1920s, a time of great social change: as women navigated changing attitudes towards sex, class and social status, the cap became an invaluable accessory. This exhibition charts the evolution of the cap, and explores notions of sex appeal and the concept of ‘the boudoir’.

This 90-page catalogue is full of exquisite imagery of both beautiful contemporary design and the historical lingerie that influenced it, photographed by Tigz Rice.
‘Lingerie For Your Hair: Can Hats Be Underwear?’ also includes feature essays by Sophie Grapentin examining the evolution and social significance of the boudoir cap.
Combining our exquisite collection images with fascinating extended essays, our A5 catalogues are printed in full colour on 130gsm silk finish paper. A must-have addition to the digital library of any lingerie or fashion history enthusiast.
60% of the profits from this sale will be reinvested directly into The Underpinnings Museum, allowing this incredible resource to remain 100% free to access online, as well as to develop new projects and exhibitions.
All catalogues are also available in a downloadable PDF format directly from The Underpinnings Museum’s digital store.
