MadebyNoemi_classic1In the second of my ‘where I shop’ lingerie features, I bring you the wonderfully simple but beautifully crafted ‘Classic’ collection from Made by Noemi, driven by the belief that classic means timeless; always in fashion.

There are some lingerie styles that really should be an investment in the same way that your closet contains the perfect white shirt; the wear-everywhere leather jacket and those well-fitting pair of jeans.  Designer Noemi Ivanova has an aesthetic lean towards both basic and thematic collections, but the Classic collection is my new favourite as it excels in both simple beauty and function.

Produced in cotton and lace (there is also new beachwear collection, which I shall spoil you with another time):

“A key factor in the Classic collection is the fabric: it has to be perfect. The collection is produced in cotton and in lace. I wanted, and finally found, a thin cotton fabric and a lace fabric that met my requirements for quality, lightness and comfort.” - Noemi Ivanova

My favourites are the cotton soft cup bras - which have cross back straps and front fixture which I feel is a great detail for comfort – and the black lace panties.

Noemi continues:

“The Classic collection is at the core of the Made by Noemi brand. My aim is to create well-fitting and beautiful garments, and I have come up with a few styles that I believe should be in every woman’s lingerie closet. Having done this for over ten years I know what works and what doesn’t. But this doesn’t mean that things don’t evolve. Over the years, the styles have been modified and the details refined, but the core vision has remained the same: to enable women to feel comfortably, as well as a bit more luxuriously, dressed – every day.”

Lingerie Lust: Base Range

base range lingerie 4I get more questions about where to buy lingerie essentials than where to find the more ‘special’ intimates.  I secretly love this, as it tells me that my readers are equally as interested in function and form when it comes to lingerie as what to ‘show’ off and wear for beauty and impact.  My next two Friday lingerie posts will therefore focus on my favourites for perfectly lovely and essential undergarments.

The first of these posts brings us Base Range, from Denmark and France.  Base is all about a Basic Aesthetic for Sustainable  Easywear, with a focus on clean, easy and accessible garments that exist somewhere between modern culture and the natural world.

Currently on sale at Net A Porter, Base Range holds the philosophy that sustainable products should not be a luxury, and as such they have priced their garments very reasonably.  Created from natural fibers such as bamboo and organic cotton, and using only natural dyes (no chemical or bleaching products) a series of beautifully basic soft cup bras, bodysuits and briefs make up the underwear collection.

This is a brand of minimalist separates and sporty yet feminine lingerie.  Visit the Base Range website HERE.

Madame Supertrash swimA combined this Friday post for lingerie and swimwear, prior to everyone jet-setting off on their summer holidays.  My attention has turned to Madame Supertrash - a vintage inspired collection of intimates paired this season with a swim line to match.

A 40s- and 50s- style collection in electric blue and pastel hues, Madame Supertrash’s current lingerie range is body sculpting at its very best. Sheer bodysuits, high waisted briefs and cleavage enhancing bras a la Joan Holloway all vie for your attention.  Some well placed cut outs and metal fastenings update the collection for the modern lingerie connoisseur.

The swim collection, aligned with the current Madame Supertrash lingerie aesthetic, is a beautiful monochrome and vintage rose print mix of bikinis, retro one-pieces and cover ups.  Zou bisous bisous indeed.

You can purchase Madame Supertrash from Beautifully UndressedJournelle, Petit Bisous, Figleaves and Prohibido. With thanks to The BodyWear Office.
