ChristieNicole_lngerie5There are some truly fabulous Australian lingerie designers around at the moment, with Christie Trowbridge of Christie Nicole being one of them.  Creating handmade lingerie from her Sydney base since just last year, Trowbridge’s current ‘Great Escape‘ collection features a series of beautiful bras and bralettes in lace and satin, in summer-fresh colours of white, mint, mauve and polka dot print.  Previously Trowbridge utilized leather and suede fabrics for her lingerie designs which is when I first noticed her – happily she is continuing to experiment with unique fabrics and textures for example the stunning yet delicate showpiece, the limited edition Blaire metal-chain bra which is available for pre-order now.

Alongside the underwear collection sit some fabulous leather and silk daywear styles: the Dakota shortsthe Courtney crop top and the Xana leather biker jacket which I have been coveting for some time.  I’m excited to see Trowbridge grow and develop her collection, mixing inner and outerwear with the ease in which she has begun to shape her brand.

RecklessWolf_Lingerie1When Reckless Wolf launched last year, designer Jade Little handed us a dynamic fusion of underwear and outerwear inspired by independent, rebellious girls. 

Still provocative and style-led, the brand have added several lines of white lingerie to their now largely monochrome-themed collection and included new designs that nicely extend each individual range. Part II of this Reckless Wolf series will introduce you, Blog Reader, to ‘Raw’, ‘Prowl’ and ‘Wild’, new for 2014.

Prey has always been one of my favourites, now with a longline bra and high-waisted knickers.  In ‘Caged‘ you have one of the most perfect inner-wear/out-to-wear bodysuits; combing translucent and opaque fabrics and with a low back, the chevron pattern and cheeky cutouts (a Reckless Wolf signature) are super flattering.

I love this editorial from the brand, featuring their Cage white crop top and white leg strap brief. Shot in LA with a heavy dose of British attitude, this pretty much sums up the confident, fearless attitudes of the woman who wears Reckless Wolf.

Friday Lingerie Lust: I.D. Sarrieri Fleur Couture Collection

FLEUR couture collection - D6067, part of D6062

FLEUR couture collection - D6055Lingerie as couture, and embracing intimates as high fashion has always been a priority in my Friday Lingerie features. This Friday I am happy to (re)introduce you to the couture collection for AW14/15 from I.D. Sarrieri, beginning with their voluminous ‘Fleur‘ line, inspired by the golden era of haute couture.

Each style within ‘Fleur’ features an in-built foam layer, concealed with stretch-silk fine satin, that results in a unique, minimalist design with  feminine volumes. To be worn and surely enjoyed as both inner and outerwear, this is the epitome of dramatic and beautiful lingerie that I love to showcase on StyleOnTheCouch.

Renowned for its creativity, craftsmanship, sophisticated designs and use of precious fabrics; most of which are created by the French artisans for the haute couture fashion designers, I.D. Sarrieri hones in on feminine strength. Founder Iulia Dobrin designs her lingerie with a “powerful and refined” woman in mind – the pagoda style shoulders on the Fleur brathough detachable, are not for the faint hearted.

Now available to purchase on Net-a-porter, so you can get a next day delivery of these specimens of seduction – see more of I.D. Sarrieri’s new couture line by clicking HERE.
