As a burlesque performer my lingerie collection inevitably skews towards showgirl styles, whether part of my onstage outfits or my personal collection, so I was definitely excited to hear about new British brand Mariesa Mae.
My first encounter with Dora Larsen was at a Dessous London event back in January of this year, where their rainbow spectrum of lacy delights had all of the lingerie bloggers ooh-ing and aah-ing as we toured the trunk show.
VienneMilano is a hosiery brand that I first discovered many moons ago, when I fell in love with a pair of their sparkly silver hold-ups (sadly no longer available). The new AW18 collection has just dropped, including the launch of the brand’s first ever plus-sized range.
Myla’s back! After more than a year of radio silence on social media and no new product releases, the brand has deleted everything and announced an “all new Myla, coming soon”. Though their website is currently just a holding page, the new AW18 collection is already available to buy at Selfridges.
With the fashion industry being the second largest contributor to global pollution, it’s comforting to know that brands are taking steps towards reducing their carbon footprint. One of the biggest recommendations is to buy second hand or vintage clothing, but this isn’t always ideal when it comes to underwear.
I’ve decided that it’s definitely time to add some new members to my team. So if you have a passion for lingerie and love to write too, read on! I’m looking for two new writers to take on slightly different roles. First up, I’m looking for a features writer to cover lookbooks, interviews and brand news.
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…
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.
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…
MariLupa launched in November last year, the result of a years-long labour of love by designer Rachel Kenyon. And though you may not have heard her name before, you’ve almost certainly seen her lingerie.
