IDSarrieri-Lingerie-SS14I.D. Sarrieri is couture lingerie with a vintage feel, an opulent mix of silk satin, silk mousseline and Chantilly lace.  For SS14 they bring us another wonderfully glittering (Swarovski elements provide that additional dash of glamour) and seductive collection of gowns and short dresses, bra and brief sets and my favourite I.D. Sarrieri signature piece, the peplum bustier.

For the woman who appreciates the finer things in life, and for the man who wants to fulfill her dreams, I.D. Sarrieri  designs are also amongst the most glamorous and luxurious in the world. With tremendous attention to detail, the brand mixes traditional lingerie contour techniques to achieve modern couture status.

My favourites from SS14: Audrey moulded padded bodysuit; high waist maxi brief and Dominatrice set.

Now available to purchase via their online shop, visit I.D. Sarrieri to see more from SS14 couture.

WoodWood The Shop At BlueBird Opening StyleOnTheCouch

It is, Blog Reader, a week of much activity as I’m currently in London to attend some of the shows and events surrounding London Fashion Week.  Hence there is no lingerie focus today and instead I’m posting a few snapshots of the things I’ve been up to since I arrived.  It is beautiful weather here in the city for the first day of LFW – Zoe Jordan opened with her autumn winter collection for 2013/14 in the Courtyard Space at Somerset House, a delightful mix of bold bright colours, structured separates and metallics which were my favourites.  I particularly liked the bodice style tops, a little warrior princess, a little androgynous too.

I also had the opportunity to visit the new space within The Shop at Bluebird dedicated to Scandinavian clothing brand Wood Wood with my friend Anna from South Molton St Style, as well as previewing the new I.D. Sarrieri lingerie collection at Cafe Royal, a fitting location for this luxury brand to show their new designs.  I.D Sarrieri’s pieces seem so much more beautiful in reality than they appear in their lookbook, something I would have thought impossible yet the styles embellished with Swarovski elements really dazzle…!

A visit to the new Cambridge Satchel Company store in Covent Garden, a browse in one of my favourite high street retailers Reiss and previewing designs from Kzeniya, Christopher Waller and Muriee means I already have plenty to write about when this week is over. Waller in particular is a great new find for me.

I’ve missed attending the New York shows and events this year, but I’m enjoying exploring London’s talent again.  You can check out the full London Fashion Week line up here.

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
