Friday Lingerie: Lascivious SS14

Lascivious StyleOnTheCouch

LascivousOne of my most loved and hence written about lingerie brands Lascivious recently released their SS14 collectionReminiscent of 1960s Playboy shoots and the ‘summer of love’, Lascivious have created feminine styles with a vintage feel, yet still in keeping with the brand’s artistic tastes:

“Floral embroidery is combined with signature cut-outs, and powdery pastel, ivory and mint ranges are given weight with classic black and rich purple pairings. Light, flirty shapes are combined with subtle nods to the brand’s more erotic aesthetic, producing a balanced offering of lingerie pieces which allows individual interpretation:

The Liana range (featured above) is my favourite from the new collection:

“This sexy range combines a pop of sea-bright mint jersey overlaid with a delicate black circle lace and finished with a scalloped trim to create a modern, feminine collection of luxury lingerie.”

The provocative Liana suspender, featuring curved cut-outs on the hips, fastens around the neck and extends down the front over the bust to a waist band which highlights your narrowest point.  It is an intricate and alluring shape that works alone or sits beautifully with the rest of the Liana lingerie range.  If you choose just one piece from SS14, this should be top of your list.

The luxe and very pretty Lucy range features a long-line bra, cut-out basque and a gorgeous selection of different brief options. Utilising an unusual embroidered, 60s-style floral lace,

Excitingly, this season Lascivious have collaborated with some Friday Lingerie faithfuls such as Marika Vera in a series of unique departures from their signature styles.  Of these I am more interested in the unique and artisan designs by William Wilde -  a latex pencil skirt, bolero jacket and neck-bow – the skirt being the  ultimate celebration of the female form, hugging and caressing every curve.

Lascivious Flower Skirt

Finally, Lascivious’ Flower skirt is a perfect addition to this summer range.  With its bubble-hem, skater style and delicately embroidered with super pretty aqua coloured flowers and beaded appliquéd floral embellishment, it is heavy enough to offer coverage on a breezy summers day and will make a gorgeous addition to any wardrobe.

Feu De Venus Lingerie

It is, Blog Reader, a delight to bring you Feu de Venus as this week’s Friday Lingerie Lust. A truly lustworthy lingerie collection, Feu de Venus is a celebration of the divine female form.  Styles like the Axelle Waist Clincher allow you to get lost in a fantasy of intensity and intimacy.  Continuing the distinctly sexual and erotic theme, the Ophelie Plunge Bra - crafted in exquisite, deep purple, silk satin with ruching details at the cups and back straps – guarantees you will be the centre of attention. Black satin bows provide punch for the look’s final touch.

With a focus on graphic lines and architectural shapes that serve to highlight the female form, fall / winter 13/14 is a powerful and seductive display of silken splendor.

My favourite from the collection is the Elsa set; a beautiful fish net and scallop lace soft cup bra with matching brief and suspender. The detail on the brief is a lovely touch, with criss-cross ribbon at the back revealing sections of skin.
