Amuse-Bouche Winter 2012

27 Feb

I’ve had my eye on Amuse-Bouche for quite some time; the intriguing Scotland-based brand is most certainly a personal favorite. You know me, I go in for sweet details, special fabrics, and the little touches that make a garment so unique and alluring. I love the old-world take on romantic style; tradition meets mysterious and coy.

Each piece of lingerie designed by Marie Lauchlan is uniquely crafted with some pieces being very limited edition, so this is truly a bespoke lingerie brand. Amuse-Bouche specializes in designs created from ethically sourced fabrics, vintage trims, trinkets and hand-embellished lace.

Beware My Lovely

Amuse-Bouche began as something so sweet and kind, a designer creating special lingerie for her friends to wear on their wedding day. Frilly garter belts, luxurious ivory satin, delicate lace, silver and pearl ornaments, all lovely and so darling! What a wonderful way to begin!

The Winter Collection – inspired by the classic era of film noir – is theatrical, elegant, and special. Each garment is intricately detailed and resplendent with trinkets and ribbons. This is lingerie that a blushing bride can wear long after the wedding bells fade, or anytime a bit of romance and intrigue is needed.

I know it seems as if I favor only UK designers, and I do have a penchant for English Lace, admittedly! I suppose it’s more accurate to say that I respect and admire England’s textile industry, so any designer that pays homage to such a treasured legacy gets high marks from me! Marie’s philosophy is represented beautifully throughout both her Winter and Summer collections; she’s even used appliques “rescued from a 1960’s wedding gown”, vintage silver and pearl brooches, hand-embellished lace, ruffles, and satin bows.

A selection of garments are available on Etsy, Folksy, and directly from Marie at Amuse-Bouche. Enjoy!
