My previous blog post was all about ColieCo, so now seemed like a good time to review the set I bought from this brand earlier in the year. An independent label that I’ve been following for a couple of years, it’s headed up by designer Nicole Neaber and is sustainably-handmade in Portugal.
I’ve always had a thing for sumptuous, ruffly knickers (they are excellent for creating the illusion of bigger curves) but these ones are especially gorgeous. The rows of leaf-shaped cut-outs make them feel like something out of a fairytale – lingerie for a pixie or a wood elf.
Chances are you’ve heard that singer and fashion icon Rihanna is launching a lingerie lingerie, and now it’s here! Savage X Fenty went live today, currently only available through that website and a Brooklyn-based pop-up ending tomorrow…
It’s no secret that I adore bows. I’m also a sucker for anything with fancy metal hardware on it. So when I saw Mimi Holliday’s Hide and Seek set, with its gold metal bow detailing, I knew it had to be mine.
I’ve been researching swimsuits and bikinis with the intention of buying a couple for the summer ahead, and thought I’d share my favourites with you here.
LIVY is a brand I came across very recently, and which instantly caught my eye. Based in France, it was founded last year by Lisa Chavy, Head of Design at high-street lingerie brand Undiz and a previous lingerie designer for luxury brands such as Dior and Cacharel.
I’m going through something of a sheer mesh phase right now. I’m late to the trend, I know. But there’s something particularly entrancing to me about this barely-there fabric – especially when it forms a backdrop for stunning embroidery work.
We recently, finally moved into our own place here in Spain, after many months of living with my in-laws. I’m still busy unpacking suitcases, but of course, one of the first things I did was pick out a place to put my lingerie collection. I realised there’s a rather a lot of it that I haven’t worn for quite some time…
My move to Barcelona got off to a serendipitous start last year when I was contacted by Sofía Luzón, a local designer who had at the time just debuted her brand. I instantly fell in love with the 12-piece collection, which focusses on elegant, simple shapes crafted from silk satin and luxurious, European-made laces.
After the gloominess of the winter months, spring always makes me want to put on my boldest and brightest clothing. The sky is blue, the sun is shining… why shouldn’t your lingerie match up? I always find that a colourful bra set lifts my mood too – it’s the perfect way to kick off each day, and the new season ahead!
