Friday Lingerie Lust: Marika Vera

Marika Vera‘s strapline ‘Better Than Naked’ is truth*.  The moment I saw their forthcoming autumn winter 2012 collection Queen Of The Galaxy I knew our Friday was made, Blog Reader:

“While the United States had Wonder Woman, Europe had Barbarella, a secret agent who would go on missions to other planets to protect Earth – all the while surviving the deadly Orgasmatron and using the power of seduction to control men and keep the world at peace….”

Tapping into all my our superheroine fantasies, Marika Vera’s series of bodysuits, kimono wraps and lingerie sets have been designed in stretch velvet, chiffon, silk and tulle fabrics which have a wonderful feel against the skin.  A palette of rich purples; amethyst, fuchsia and violet – are the psychedelic shades that bring the collection to life.

I have two favourites from this collection.  First of all, the June Culotte (second image and below) a stretch silk satin brief in high waist, retro style with stretch tulle details and some delightfully placed cut-outs. Second is the Sue Catsuit, a marvellous stretch tulle design with satin elastic binder and some very ‘discrete’ yet practical cut outs.

“Marika Vera exists to empower women, to inspire them to live sensually in a pleasing and sophisticated way for themselves and others.”

Is there anything I need to add to this?  Happy Friday Lingerie Lust, Blog Reader!  You can buy Marika Vera from Faire Frou Frou, Assiere and Bella Bella Boutique.  Stay tuned for the release of Queen Of The Galaxy this summer.

*To be distinguished from my gym‘s strapline “Look Better Naked”, which always gets me working out, pronto.
