You may remember Bijoux Indiscrets from my review of their 12 Sexy Days gift box back in November. I was lucky enough to get to pay the brand a visit last month at their Barcelona office, to chat to the co-founders Marta and Elsa.
Happy new year everyone! I thought I’d kick 2019 off with something a little different – my first ever attempt at predicting the industry’s next big trends.
My final gift guide of the year is here, and it’s one for all of you who really want to treat someone (or yourself!) this year. The majority of the items are made from real silk, and some of the laces are breathtakingly beautiful. From comfy sleepwear to dramatic robes, there’s something here to suit most lifestyles.
With little more than a week left to go until Christmas, it’s time for my second annual gift guide. I love this price range, because it’s within reach for many people but also enough to find something that feels luxurious.
Lately, a desire for visible branding has reached the world of lingerie. Influenced by both the rise of sporty, athleisure-wear and the 90s fashion revival (think Kate Moss in Calvin Klein logo-waistband briefs), logo elastic trims are everywhere right now. But that’s not the trend that this article is about.
What do you do when you can’t find your favourite lingerie brands in your country? Well for one Portugal-based woman named Kia, the answer was to launch her own boutique! The result is Killed In Action, an online store focussed on high-end, high-fashion lingerie.
I know, I know, I said I was going to get my gift guides done nice and early this year, and here I am publishing the first one two weeks before Christmas Eve. But if you still have some present-shopping to do, then this post is for you.
Today’s post is a follow-up to my recent one on gold-coloured lingerie. Because this other classic metallic can be just as beautiful and luxe! And, I would argue, even more perfect for the festive season. There’s just this definite wintery, ice-queen type vibe that comes with silver.
Bijoux Indiscrets is a Barcelona-based brand creating lingerie-adjacent accessories, from pasties to harnesses to delicate body chains. 2018 marks twelve years since they launched, and to celebrate they’ve created 12 Sexy Days, a large and luxurious gift box.
My Christmas tree is up and decorated (yep, I’m one of those people), and this year I’ve gone with a white and gold theme. I love a metallic touch all year round, but it feels especially perfect for the festive season.
