If anybody thinks that the fashion pieces and the presentation of the tradition of the beer festival Oktoberfest and the annual field parties (Wiesn' Fest) in September and October stay the same hasn't observed the latest collections closely. Fashionoffice reported recently about a campaign which depicted a couple playing with gender roles.
Today, US label Jockey sent some images of this year's special 'Wiesn' collection of underwear pieces for Oktoberfest 2015. For the first time, Jockey presents Wiesn' underwear for women. The design is derived from the classical leather trachten trousers of men.
It's the fifth year that Jockey designs underwear especially for Octoberfest and Wiesn' parties. The first 'Original Jockey Wiesn' Boxer' for men hit the market successfully. In the meanwhile, the special editions are sold across Europe as well as in US and Australia. Since the release of the first women's loungewear in autumn 2014, Jockey delivers also women's underwear in Europe.
