One of my most loved and hence written about lingerie brands Lascivious recently released their SS14 collection. Reminiscent 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.
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.
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.
