During my recent trip to Paris I had the fantastic opportunity to visit lingerie and boudoir accessories boutique Mise En Cage, the only one of its kind in the city. Amidst a beautifully chic Parisian apartment filled with antique furniture and retro modern leather chairs and sofas, founder and owner Florence Abelin and her team offer visitors a targeted and private shopping experience. This intimate space gives prospective buyers the opportunity to explore the excellent range of products Florence has curated – couture lingerie collections, ready-to-wear inspired lingerie and boudoir accessories are displayed temptingly throughout the salon.
You can find some of my favourite brands at Mise En Cage. Bordelle, Lascivious, Paul Seville (famous corset maker to Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood) and Tamzin Lillywhite (whose Pony Ear Bridle, exclusive to Mise En Cage, I am wearing in this post.)
I also come across some delightful new finds during my visit! Tania Zekkout is an accessories designer whose creations fashionably blur the line between fetish and stylish. I love her collars, made from a mix of leather and muslin. Murmur are a brand who I will feature on StyleOnTheCouch soon. Attracted to their beautiful bodysuits and bras, Murmur creates daywear and eveningwear for women, viewed through the lens of a powerful eroticism.
You can also find some wonderful gifts at Mise En Cage, perfect for Valentine’s Day.
