Fleur of England Forever balcony bra, suspender and thongJust when I think that I am top of Fleur of England‘s ever evolving lingerie range, I spy something of theirs on social media that makes my most-coveted list in a flash.  Pure, romantic white – the Forever collection is inspired by coral beaches and dreamy getaways, created from bespoke in-house embroidered tulle and silk satin.

All your favourite Fleur signatures are here; the boudoir bra and the bow tie brief, and there is a wonderful standout piece, the modern sleek fishtail skirt.  The skirt reminds me of some of the mesh styles that Milly NY sent down the runway last summer when inner wear/outerwear was in full force along the catwalks.  With a nude slip underneath I think this skirt has a wonderful dual functionality.

There is also a balcony style bra and baby doll dress which would make a lovely honeymoon or holiday item. This is feel-good-look-great lingerie.  To view the entire Forever collection, click HERE.

Lingerie Lust: Base Range

The first of these posts brings us Base Range, from Denmark and France.  Base is all about a Basic Aesthetic for Sustainable  Easywear, with a focus on clean, easy and accessible garments that exist somewhere between modern culture and the natural world.

Currently on sale at Net A Porter, Base Range holds the philosophy that sustainable products should not be a luxury, and as such they have priced their garments very reasonably.  Created from natural fibers such as bamboo and organic cotton, and using only natural dyes (no chemical or bleaching products) a series of beautifully basic soft cup bras, bodysuits and briefs make up the underwear collection.

This is a brand of minimalist separates and sporty yet feminine lingerie.  Visit the Base Range website HERE.

Madame Supertrash swimA combined this Friday post for lingerie and swimwear, prior to everyone jet-setting off on their summer holidays.  My attention has turned to Madame Supertrash - a vintage inspired collection of intimates paired this season with a swim line to match.

A 40s- and 50s- style collection in electric blue and pastel hues, Madame Supertrash’s current lingerie range is body sculpting at its very best. Sheer bodysuits, high waisted briefs and cleavage enhancing bras a la Joan Holloway all vie for your attention.  Some well placed cut outs and metal fastenings update the collection for the modern lingerie connoisseur.

The swim collection, aligned with the current Madame Supertrash lingerie aesthetic, is a beautiful monochrome and vintage rose print mix of bikinis, retro one-pieces and cover ups.  Zou bisous bisous indeed.

You can purchase Madame Supertrash from Beautifully UndressedJournelle, Petit Bisous, Figleaves and Prohibido. With thanks to The BodyWear Office.
