Friday Lingerie Lust: Lascivious AW12/13

It is with great excitement, Blog Reader, that I bring you the new autumn winter 2012 collection by Lascivious for this week’s Friday Lingerie Lust.  One of my most lust-worthy features to date, this season Lascivious treat us to three new amazing and sexually explosive collections inspired by ‘love’ – Lola, Isla and Cara – whilst retaining their signature classics for us to enjoy all year round, such as Lila (below) and Kitty (final image, below – and yes, MIAOW).

“Our autumn winter 12 collection is inspired by the notion of love as a binding entity – something you want to be chained to; lustful, base and raw. This mood and idea has been deconstructed to draw inspiration literally from flesh and bone – from our Lola collection, with its sinuous flowing design lines, through to Cara, which features an ivory bone colour over which a luxe gunmetal chain is digitally printed.
There is also a circular theme running through the ranges, with eyelets, circular cut outs, mesh and components. The Isla collection features a patent leather playsuit that can be laced in any way the wearer chooses – the ultimate in restrictive freedom; and a new collaborative collar and cuffs with Fraulein Kink, available for wholesale for the first time. Highlights of leather and [faux] fur are included to stimulate the senses; the juxtoposition of hard and soft (heart and bone) echoing the central themes for all AW12 ranges” ~ Lascivious

Regular Blog Readers might already have spotted my favourite piece from the new collection – image top shows the Isla Long Body Piece and thong, the body garment being a striking show-piece made from eyelet tape which can be fastened and tied in many different ways to harness the body.  I’m already envisaging this as both inner and outerwear and I’m really impressed with the styling of this piece in the editorial.  Lascivious, this is just why I love you…!

My joint favourite has to be the Lola Basque (above).  A beautifully dramatic body with pleated fins at the hips and contrasting cut outs and panelling, the removable suspender attachments allow this piece to be worn as inner or outerwear too.  It’s a very modern interpretation of the traditional basque and one done very well.

The classics from Lascivious include some fabulous ivory pieces, and at this point I have to give them a shout out for naming one of their collections after me.  Above: Sarah-Lou - delicate French hand-beaded lace, silk and an oyster satin bow.

Finally, Cara (above), created in-house by the Lascivious team.  Subversive and provocative, Cara is a limited edition range of bra and briefs/string, suspender and vest – get in there quick if it takes your fancy, I can guarantee it will not be around long.

I salute you, Lascivious for your continued effort at being fashion forward, directional lingerie.  You can catch the brand at Curve in New York City this year too.

Have a wonderful weekend, Blog Reader! It looks like being great weather in NYC and I’m hoping to enjoy the outdoors, humidity permitting. I’m also planning a trip to Charleston next weekend, so if anyone has any suggestions of things to do or places to go please leave me a comment below.  I think it’s going to be an exciting trip!

    Goodness, very must lustful, base and raw! Agreed on your top pick, it is definitely mine as well. Very fashion forward but also very demur and a bit old world with the lace at the same time, it is an interesting juxtaposition! Happy weekend lady!

    Every week I think I’ve seen the best of your Lingerie Lust posts… and then you come up with something new! When it comes to lingerie, Mary Green is about as adventurous as I ever get, but I must admit that I am impressed (and enticed!) by the most fashion aspects of the Lascivious collection, particularly the chain print on the pieces in the Cara collection. Happy weekend, my dear!
    xox,
    Cee

      I’m glad we’re expanding your lingerie horizon’s Cee! With the lingerie features I try to balance the innovative with the functional (though I do think there are labels that do both very well) but I’m always excited to find collections like these x

    Very sexy! And if you were headed to Savannah, I’d have suggestions. I say go, ask a local off the beaten path, and do what they would do. Oh – and have a great time!

        Spend time on Tybee, go on the ghost tours, walk off of River Street, visit every single square you can, go to the Mansion on Forsyth, eat at the Crab Shack (it’s not classy, but it’s great fun, fresh food and “where the elite eat in their bare feet”), enjoy SCAD and the hipster art students; asking hubs – he says the most important is to just walk around. Bring lots of flats and prepare to sweat – just go outside, walk around and check it out. Oh, and do *not* forget your camera charger. And maybe an extra memory card. Have so much fun! Enjoy the heck out of the hospitality.
