Friday Lingerie Lust: Christie Nicole ‘The Great Escape’





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.

Lingerie Lust: Christie Nicole



Christie Nicole 1

Christie Nicole 2Continuing last week’s theme of beautiful undergarments you just won’t want to cover up, designer Christie Trowbridge of Christie Nicole has produced a range of simple yet stunning monochrome lingerie designs in lace, leather and suede fabrics.  With names like ‘A Blissful Fantasy’, ‘Black Rose’ and ‘A World of Her Own’, Christie Nicole’s collections create a world of secret luxury, quiet confidence and modern femininity.

The brand began with a focus on the bralette,  a lingerie wardrobe staple:

“I think every woman should have a bralette because they are not like your normal bra you never see underneath clothing. I see them as a staple piece because you are able to show off a bralette, if you have a sheer top on or a loose baggy singlet or even wear the thicker bralettes as a top with a pair of high waisted jeans.” – Christie Trowbridge

Whilst the bralette is still a signature design within the collections, recent developments include this wonderful Xana soft leather jacket to wear with your bralettes - high on my wish list.

For her AW14 collection, Trowbridge was inspired by a quote from Alice in Wonderland – “In a world of my own”.

“It’s about all the feelings and emotions that one could be hiding. The inspiration being one’s self. With the look book expressing the way someone can let loose, being free, off in a world of their own. A big inspiration is also Fete Champetre, I love their images.” – Interview with OysterMag

I love the aesthetics within these collections.  Click HERE to browse and purchase Christie Nicole lingerie. To see more inspirations, visit the brand’s Tumblr and Facebook Page.
