Naran is an independent Australian lingerie label founded by Caroline Naran, who previously designed for Pleasure State (the brand that made one of my favourite ever lingerie sets). She’s also an artist, creating herself the beautiful prints that are used on some Naran pieces.
This was absolutely one of those love-at-first-sight impulse purchases, and I’m happy to say I don’t regret it. It ticks two of my biggest lingerie style boxes: unusual texture and vibrant green. It was incredibly budget-friendly too, at just $35 (about £26 or 31€).
It’s been quite some time since Agent Provocateur has released either a campaign or collection that piqued my interest enough to write about it. All the way since 2014 in fact. But their Spring/Summer 2019 campaign, titled Pump It Up, has really connected with me.
Studio Pia is something special. I’ve liked every single design they have launched to date, and that’s unusual. And that has only become truer than ever with the new Spring/Summer 2019 collection, which is my favourite yet.
In the UK, I would sometimes leave things hanging in the bathroom to dry, and two days later they would still be damp! Oh, and smelling awful by then too. The bad odour is caused by mildew. So how can you dry your lingerie in a way that protects these delicate garments, but leaves them smelling clean and fresh?
For all my fellow fashionistas who are begrudgingly in need of a nude bra, I thought I’d round up a whole bunch of the prettiest. A lot of these feature lace or embroidery, but there are also a few chic options for those who need (or just prefer) a smooth, moulded cup.
Harlow & Fox is one of those brands I’ve lusted after endlessly, but always assumed I’d never actually own. The label is about as luxurious as lingerie can get, creating utterly indulgent pieces from silk and exquisite laces.
If you’re considering launching your own lingerie line, there’s a lot to think about. How are you going to fund this venture? What’s going to make your brand different and desirable? Where will you be selling? And of course, one of the most practical concerns of all – how are you actually going to make everything?
Femme Aubade is made from a combination of jacquard satin and sheer, geometric Leavers lace that incorporates a hint of metallic thread. Right away, this set looked luxurious. Everywhere you look, there’s a beautiful little detail – the little gold buttons, the delicately scalloped cup edges, the straps…
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.
