Friday Lingerie Lust: Blush Fall Winter 2012

I go weak at the knees for Blush.  This is the brand’s third appearance on a lingerie lust post on StyleOnTheCouch and their fall winter campaign for 2012 has me coveting the vast majority of the new styles.  Blush are a wonderfully opulent label within an accessible price range and in this current collection there is a little something for everyone.

Each design is a sensual, voluptuous piece of lingerie so it was incredibly difficult to pick my favourites from the new collection here.  This soft cup bra and high waisted brief (image above) – Covet ties for first place with the beautifully structured corset Etoile, below.  The colour palette for fall mixes different hues of pink and lavender with midnight blue and black.  We also see the introduction of animal prints into the collection for the first time (image far below).

Minx (below) and Closer are guaranteed to bring out the feline in you.

At this point I need to ask if you are still interested in my words, Blog Reader, such are the fabulous editorial images in this post.

No? I thought not.  Well then, I simply direct you to the Blush website to view the entire collection.  All that remains is for me to wish you a fabulous weekend! Until tomorrow, when we have a little #TeamGB on the couch…..

You can purchase Blush from Bloomingdales and Bare Necessities.  You can also shop at Anthropologie and Journelle in New York City.  A full list of stockists is available via the Blush website.

Friday Lingerie Lust: I.D. Sarrieri Autumn / Winter 2012

I go weak at the knees for I.D. Sarrieri and their forthcoming autumn / winter collection is another show-stopping range of lingerie.  Names such as Vixen Chic, Black Temptation, Irresistible and Lady Lovelace conjure up images of wild and sexy nights, with playful editorial images to match.

I introduced you to I.D. Sarrieri back in March, Blog Reader (you can read the earlier feature here) – a label mixing vintage inspiration with modern trends to create beautiful silhouettes for women.  It is sumptuous, luxurious lingerie and their new fall collection is heavy on fine lace, silk satin and mesh fabrics with some bold metallic detail – such aspects are important to I.D Sarrieri and many of their designs can be found decorated with Swarowski accessories.  This boned corset (above) is a favourite of mine, every inch a work of art.

Overall the collection contrasts light and dark.  The commanding ‘Ringmaster’ style uTame stands next to the beautifully adorned Little Mermaid (image below) and Belle du Jour (image directly above).

Special occasion lingerie?  If you owned this surely you’d want to wear it every day.  This collection is so ‘femme fatale’ I adore it.  Who’s with me, Blog Reader??

Have a fabulous weekend – here in NYC I’ll be taking part in a few of the Cinco de Mayo activities (with apologies to my French friends, but you have a fanfare for everything these days….) and meeting up with Lydia for some new blog photos.  I’m excited as we have outfits from Three Floor Fashion and Morgan Carper coming up! xo

StyleOnTheCouch Loves: Herve Leger Fall 2012

This fall at Herve Leger, signature figure-hugging dresses were made yet more seductive with the added thrill of restraint.  Harnesses at the hip, waist and bust and gladiator style corset boots accompanied each piece of the collection down the catwalk.

A little equestrian at times however overall pertaining to a bondage theme, the harnesses seen for fall 2012 seemed to be a development of the details we saw back in spring: back then we saw dresses with bodices, adorned with delicate metal belts.

This collection, inspired by feminine strength, is likely to appeal to those who love to show off their curves.  (Which, naturally, is a pre-requisite for an overall liking of the label.)  The harness details accentuate the feminine shape and certainly add a sense of drama to the proceedings.

I got a bit lost in the dominatrix accents at first – I almost overlooked the fact that different silhouettes punctuated the collection rather than it being bandage dress after bandage dress.  Fringed skirts, long sleeves and even some skinny trousers found their way onto the catwalk this season at Leger.

Much of the collection is just what I have come to expect from Herve Leger – devastatingly sexy pieces, time after time. I’m a fan – are you?
