Murmur Clothing 1Season after season, Murmur Clothing create a collection of lingerie inspired dresses, accessories and separates with a lot of innerwear as out-to-wear potential.  Their signature collection stay faithfully with bodysuits and sleek, ‘body conscious’ dresses designed to enhance the bust, waistline and hip. Femme fatales might be interested in these styles from their Spring Summer collection – the dramatic Dusk Dress (above, left) created in silk with bondage details is a piece truly apt for a twilight entrance; the second-skin like Figure Dress (middle image, left) carries with it a stretch lining designed to mould a flawless silhouette.

Murmur asked me to style a piece from their Spring Summer collection for StyleOnTheCouch. I chose the Tetris Skirt, in black, to show that Murmur’s designs can fit into an everyday wardrobe.  This is a very flattering figure-hugging skirt that even gives petite-moi a little shape. Available in both black and nude, you can view this piece along with the entire Murmur collection, HERE.

My favourite, shown in the third image here, is the white corseted suspender belt.

Romanticism meets Sci-Fi: Murmur Clothing

Back in Paris this January I visited the fabulous Mise En Cage boutique where owner Florence Abelin introduced me to lingerie inspired clothing brand Murmur.  It was love at first sight for me with this Marshmallow Bust Harness in black (also available in praline and white), a dream to wear for a dramatic ‘flounce’ over a simple little black dress or as part of a lingerie set.

The harness part of the bra is made from elastic bands with some well placed leather detail.  The flounces on the shoulders are pleated voile – my friend Kim told me they were like ‘wings’ (they are no less heavenly to wear!)  It is such an aesthetically pleasing shape – framing the bust and grabbing your attention at the shoulders. Florence described this piece to me as a little romanticism mixed with a little Sci-Fi – I’m thinking Barbarella-meets-The-Lady-Of-Shallot, a style I can get behind.

Murmur are a wonderfully fashion-forward brand.  I just received some images of their spring summer collection and will be featuring these on a Friday Lingerie Focus post very soon, Blog Reader.  Alongside their mainline collection they recently launched Murmur Takeaway, a youthful diffusion line I’m also looking forward to sharing with you.  In the meantime please do check out their styles here on Mise En Cage.  Click here for the full Murmur website.

With special thanks to William Williams for the photography.
