The Lucile Brand, once one of the most iconic and revered fashion houses of the early 20th Century, has been revived by Camilla Blois in a most stunning manner. Lucile Lingerie has recently debuted two collections of lingerie and luxury nightwear, ushering into the world garments that are both instantly classic and unforgettably timeless. The exquisitely beautiful lingerie whispers of another era when women were awakening to a new world where they could be bold, audacious, seductive and daring.

“Inspired by Lady Duff Gordon’s revolutionary and stunning lingerie designs of the early 20th Century, Lucile represents femininity, elegance and romance. Combining sumptuous fabrics, rich colours and delicate drapery, each piece is crafted to celebrate and enhance the female form.

When buying a Lucile product, you are buying into a piece of history, a celebration of femininity, sensuality and romance. Lady Duff Gordon’s signature style will run through every lingerie item, making it unmistakably recognizable as Lucile.”   ~ Lucile Lingerie Philosophy

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!

Panty of the Day: Sequined Siren

21 Jan

My birthday approaches rapidly, my pretties.  I have no qualms about admitting my age (33), and I’m not afraid of getting older, but for some reason…this year I just want to skip it!  But that’s no way to have fun and celebrate!  Perhaps I need something sparkly to brighten up my humors.

Enter…La Lilouche!

The sequined high-waisted knickers come with detachable suspenders. I love this SO MUCH. I always go a bit weak for suspender briefs! ♥ ♥ ♥

Dang the UK!  All the best lingerie in the world lives there, and I live here…in America!  Shucks.

Perhaps a pair of sparkly panties will find their way to me.  ; )
