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.

Friday Lingerie Lust: Fleur of England AW13

Fleur of England Flirtation balcony bra, suspender and thongAW13, Fleur of England tell us, is all about feeling spoilt, loved and treasured. In accordance with this, they tempt us to learn the art of flirtation with their new luxury lace collection:

“Take a vibrant twist of pink eyelash lace, add a seductive sea of transparent midnight Italian lace and then choose from perfectly crafted playful designer silhouettes. The new Flirtation collection is bursting with personality. With Italian and French lace as fine as the flutter of your eyelashes.”

After this, Blog Reader, one expects you are ready to go and be your mischievous self…

A second collection from Fleur for AW13 (there are five in total, to match the moods of the brand: Romantic, Playful, Fiercely Feminine, Luxurious and Powerful) is named Truffle for its deliciously luxurious colour:

“Hand-cut and appliquéd French eyelash lace and rich silk-satin create a true Fleur of England classic. Rich sensual mink tones are delectable. Truffle features new luxurious shapes in the refined camisole and belted kimono. Signature Fleur of England styles, such as the elegant babydoll gown, create the most beautiful silhouettes.”

My favourite from the Truffle collection is the silk and lace boudoir bra and bow tie brief. I love the element of undressing in the art of seduction and this set is perfect – very lavish, very romantic. Perhaps equally so is the balcony bra, suspender and thong from the Flirtation collection. I like the contrasting lace bright fuchsia against the deep navy Italian lace, very striking.

Another of Fleur’s AW13 collections, Belle de Nuit, deserves a whole post of its own so watch this space.  For more information on the full range click HERE.  You can also purchase Fleur of England from a range of stockists, click HERE for more details.

Happy Friday, Blog Reader! StyleOnTheCouch xo
