Blush Intimates: Friday Lingerie Lust

Blush_Lingerie-AFTERMIDNIGHT_1From the look and style of the editorials that Blush Lingerie produce, you would never think that this brand is so reasonably priced. That’s one of the main reasons I love Blush, they have a wonderfully down to earth attitude to creating beautiful, accessible designs; styles that can bring a woman confidence and inspiration. I previously wrote about the brand HERE, highlighting their super sexy secret agent styled campaign back in 2011, a series of sultry bra and brief sets, lace camisoles, dresses and bodysuits.  Their mission back then was “to provide flirtatious and affordable luxury to women worldwide with the creation of sensual, voluptuous and urbane intimates”.  I’d say they have succeeded and built upon this statement; with current collections Paramour, Sinfully Yours, After Midnight and Victory proving that Blush’s new mission is to help women find a new source of feminine strength through their lingerie.

My favourite of the new collections is After Midnight, a black and white / blue and black lace and modal series that works just as well under daytime clothes as it might worn to impress in the evening.  A close second comes Paramour, with its poetic scalloped lace and retro styling.

Blush is a huge amount of luxe for less.  For those of you already planning your Christmas lingerie shopping or looking for that special gift, be sure to check out the full range on their website HERE. They ship worldwide, so there is no excuse not to have the perfect lingerie sent right to your door (alternatively, ask Santa).

I also have an exciting giveaway with Blush coming up over the next few weeks, so keep checking back!

Friday Lingerie Lust: Kriss Soonik Loungerie SS14








coolbrands_bookIf you are a regular reader of my Friday Lingerie series then Kriss Soonik will need no introduction.  A beautiful mix of lingerie and luxe loungewear, Soonik’s collections mix her Nordic minimalism with a hefty dose of New York cool and Parisian chic.  Signatures from the brand include her suspender top and triangle lace bra – the latter has been brought back a rainbow of colours for 2014; all seven colours of lace Soonik has worked with over the years - to celebrate the brand turning five years old.

For SS14 Soonik uses electric blue, cream and white for her line of bodysuits, cover ups, and lace bra and brief sets with signature bows and ruffles all perfectly placed.  My favourites from the new line are the Elva bodysuit (image two, right) – I never found a halterneck design I didn’t like because it accentuates the shoulders in a super sexy way – and the Susan lace knickers (image four, left) which are just too beautifully frilly to cover up.

Named as one of Britain’s ‘Cool Brands‘ for 2013/14 and featuring in countless fashion magazines, you can’t be a true lingerie affectionado without some Kriss Soonik in your closet.

For Love & Lemons Skivvies lingerie

Skivvies by For Love And Lemons LingerieFor Love & Lemons recently launched their new passion project: Skivvies. Their debut intimates collection combines lace and sportswear fabrics with a high fashion design so the styles move with your body:

“Skivvies was born from the desire to design one-of-a-kind lingerie with the intention to be shown off and worn under all types of garments. The spirit of Skivvies is to be sexy, playful, and as unique as the woman who wears it.”

Most of the Skivvies pieces are intended to be worn under sheer garments or outfits that you have difficulty finding the right undergarments for. Basically, this is innerwear as out-to-wear, Blog Reader – Skivvies intimates are meant to be shown off while covering your body in all the right places.

My favourites from the collection are the lace dress (image two) and bodysuit (image six).  There is a wonderfully 70s vibe to their editorial; a slightly disco feel in places, the sunglasses and the retro leather sofa…

You can buy Skivvies from Revolve Clothing and Planet Blue.  Click HERE for the For Love & Lemons main site. For more images of the collection, click HERE to be directed to the For Love & Lemons blog.
