Astrological-inspired lingerie continues to be a trend, and Love & Swans’ latest set takes the theme to a luxurious new level. Named Cygnus, the set is made from midnight-blue mesh that is lavishly embellished with a celestial array of stars and clustered constellations.
The Glycine long nightdress is made from 100% silk satin, which is cut on the bias (a fabric-intensive and therefore more expensive technique) for a better drape on the body. It’s trimmed with guipure, which is one of the primary reasons I chose this piece in particular.
SADA by Sarah is a relatively new brand to come to my attention, but that I hope to see featured a lot more in the years to come. Designer Sarah Dawson creates her signature pieces in Brooklyn, New York, after realising her passion for designing intimate apparel while studying the city’s Fashion Institute of Technology.
Have you ever been so excited to receive a parcel that instead of tearing into it the moment it arrived, you actually waited a day or two, because you wanted to savour the anticipation of knowing you were about to unwrap something truly special? That’s how I felt when my Love & Swans package arrived.
Created by Karolina Kobets, JTM Noir Lingerie focusses primarily on satin robes, though they also offer nightgowns and pyjamas and have a small range of linen pieces. Some designs tend towards a fairly minimal look, but it’s the swishy, lace-trimmed garments where the brand’s decadent vision truly shines.
I first featured Apilat on the blog in my 2017 round-up of brands making incredible robes, and they’ve only gotten better since. Couture techniques and luxury fabrics are central to their design process, and how could they not be when this label got its start designing wedding dresses?
You may recall Keòsme from my earlier review of their Bersèra swimsuit, or my review of the Hermiona bra set by their sister brand loveJilty. Both Keòsme and loveJilty are produced by yesUndress, a Ukrainian retailer with an ever-growing number of brands under its umbrella.
Luxury lingerie brand Prelude has been on the outskirts of my radar for a while, for designing some incredibly beautiful pieces. It’s hard to pick a favourite from the Noir Fatal collection, but I’m definitely swooning over the high-neck bra (subtly decked out in Swarovski crystals) and high-waist knicker combination.
Three years ago I wrote a post rounding up seven brands making some of the most stunning luxury robes available to buy online. And since many of us are set to spend the foreseeable future indoors, now seemed like a good time to do a follow-up post with seven more.
The second I stumbled across Dorshelle Guillaume, I fell in love. The designs are simply breathtaking, every single one of them an ornate and unique showstopper. There’s a level of decadence and attention to detail here that is rare even amongst luxury lingerie brands, from lusciously-embellished fabrics to beaded fringing.
