Friday Lingerie Lust: Lascivious AW12/13
26th July 2012
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!
