Olivia Pistols

Olivia Pistols Bikini

If you want to stand out from the crowd in St Tropez this summer, you would be advised to check it out. They feature a gorgeous collection of bikinis, one piece swimsuits, kaftans and coverups from brands such as ; Pistol Panties, Olga Olsson, Mouille, Paolita and Sea Sirens. Throw in Lotus London and Tallulah & Hope and you have a pretty impressive line up. The Olivia Pistols set from Pistols Panties is our personal favourite: for the chic look. In a classic navy and white Breton stripe with cute heart detail on the spacer and on the sides of the dainty hipster briefs.

For the classic tie side look, the Riby and Peller collection should increase the temperature by the pool by a couple of degrees.

Kate Middleton Bridal Lingerie and Stockings

April 18th, 2011

Kate Middleton will be wearing Aristoc stockings on the Royal Wedding day, according to sources.

aristoc

Kate Middleton´s Stockings?

The British hosiery brand has been picked by Kate Middleton to wear on her wedding day to Prince William. The company has a long and distinguished history and has been supplying ladies with stockings since the 1920s, and it has since styled itself as “The Aristocrat of Silk Stockings”.
The company’s only blip in production was during the war when all silk production in the UK was switched into parachute manufacture.

The company is based in Derbyshire, and if the Kate Middleton rumour is true, Aristoc can expect a massive surge in sales of its  luxury hosiery.

Aristoc stockings are on sale in hundreds of UK shops including John Lewis and Debenhams.

And her lingerie choice for the big day? Well, that´s still a secret, but we are reliably told it´s NOT Theo Paphitis´ new brand Boux Avenue, although we´d have to say, his new range looks great & it´s certainly fantastic value for money.

This lingerie house crafts pieces that have been inspired by 18th century opulence and style, an era characterised by frills and ribbons.
Les Jupons de Tess have clearly been inspired by this period´s “Boudoir” collections : and the end result is an über glamorous range of corsetry and lingerie for women looking to be a teeny bit flirtatious, seductive & mischievous.

The Spring/Summer collection 2011 is a delicate collection, made with finely worked, elegant and luxurious fabrics…..fantastic bodices with fitted corsets, plenty of silk, high-waisted chiffon gowns all feature.

Absolutely stunning…..


Agent Provoacateur Launches iPhone / iPod Touch App: Shake Me, Tilt Me, Undress Me

January 31st, 2011

Well, it was only a matter of time…

Agent Provocateur, the luxury lingerie brand, had launched their first free iPhone app (which also works on the iPod Touch), called:

“Shake Me, Tilt Me, Undress ME”. The App was developed by Grape Digital, and is available for adults to download in the App Store.
When we tried this out, we were a little underwhelmed. The app instructs you to “Shake to Start”. That didn´t work.

Eventually a picture of a model comes up in a little black dress, and the app instructs you to “Touch ME!”. You are then redirected to the Agent Provocateur website which isn´t optimised for iPhones. We weren´t sure how you browse around.

Hmmmmmm. Nice idea but poor execution.

The French designer is a dab hand at creating risqué underwear for women.
He has developed an exclusive 23-piece collection for the Italian luxury lingerie house featuring several examples of his infamous “rocket cone” bras that come in pale ‘boudoir pink’ and jet-black. Madonna first made them a hit 20 years ago during her ‘Blonde Ambition’ world tour of 1990.

Bra skirt by Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla

Each design, says the designer, is a “a celebration of the female body” – good for underneath or even better out on show as party or club-wear.

The collection is full of delicate satins, stretch, lace and tulle, and will be launched in the UK on Monday, January 17, at Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, La Perla’s Sloane Street shop, and on Net-a-porter.com, which is already reporting huge demand.

Bras will set you back from £270 to £855, and knickers will cost between £135 and £450.
Standout pieces from the collection include a rich red, stretch-satin, ‘bra-dress’ with metal clasps and a multi-strap ‘bondage’ back (following on the current fetish craze); a black guipure ace bra, corset, suspenders and knickers set; a vintage-style bra with double-straps and satin shoulder-pads; a suspender-belt that accentuates your curves and bustiers to maximise your cleavage.

“Lingerie is part of my DNA ,” Gaultier said. “It is almost 30 years now since I designed my first corset dress.”


Valentine´s Day Lingerie From Fox & Rose

January 6th, 2011

Well, Christmas is just over and we are just getting over our New Year champagne hangover (no hangover actually. Veuve Clicquot, of course, darling). We were wondering how long it was going to take before Lingerieland got around to Valentine´s Day.

Answer: not long!

Fox and Rose, an online luxury lingerie shop, gets the “First Out of The Blocks” prize with the launch of a special range of Valentine´s Day knickers and bras.

Do you fancy yourself as a “racy temptress” or a “timeless beauty” (their words not ours!),

Fox and Rose is a UK based site with UK and international lingerie designers- it´s pretty good actually, for all of our digs.

The site is easy to navigate, they offer free returns and their posh undies will arrive beautifully packed- perfect for a present or a s a treat for yourself.

They are going big on French label Rosy with its sultry Parisienne (plenty of boudoir here if you want to get on the latest burlesque trend). Try the gorgeous Romanesque Bra: scalloped lace on a muted gold underlay for the opulent look.

Lascivious

Lascivious Undies

Fleur of England is also a designer worth checking out at the site:  luxurious fabrics and exquisite detailing. Try on their Crush Lace Bra that boasts a double lined cup for great support and wide silk straps – VERY comfy!

And if you are looking to be a bit more risqué, try the  uber-hip label Lascivious with their fetish and bondage inspired Milla numbers: exquisite silk satin with their signature powernet that sculpts and clings to your curves.
