Lascivious Lingerie for AW13

Lascivious FW13 LingerieBack to the regular schedule of Friday Lingerie Lust, Blog Reader.  First up, a brand close to my heart and hence never too far from this Friday page: the incredible Lascivious.  For AW13 they collaborated with photographer Szymon Brodziak, whose images are often compared with Helmut Newton, for a sultry campaign filled with fantasy and desire. The new lines:

Jade: sensual cut-outs and a combination of contemporary mesh and decadent silk in a seductive jade colour-way with contrast copper components. Modern and effortlessly sexy.

Mai: a beautiful, feminine range that features a perfect pairing of nude fabric overlain with softly textured black tulle, given a modern edge with leatherette detailing and contrast copper components.

Isa: my favourite from the collection, a bodysuit made with a combination of black, sparkle mesh and faux leather, also available with dramatic crystal embellishment. Perfect to combine with a harness or jewellery piece as outerwear or for the bedroom.

Whilst Lascivious create new and unique collections season after season, they continue to sell their classics year round which includes a lovely luxury basics range.  For more information on Lascivious click HERE.

Karolina Laskowska Lingerie StyleOnTheCouchI get very excited when lingerie-loving friends let me know about their new finds! My friend and fellow blogger Lindsay, who you may recognise from her guest posts before on StyleOnTheCouch, told me about Karolina Laskowska earlier this year.  A wonderful synergy between fashion and lingerie, Laskowska told me this about her brand:

“I adore blending concepts of eroticism, luxury and lingerie as outerwear.  Most of my pieces can add an edge to outerwear, whether worn on top of a vest top or visible under a sheer blouse.  They’re equally as stylish but a lot more naughty in the bedroom!  I adore bespoke work too – designing one-off pieces for individual customers, using the finest French couture laces and silks. I’d like to introduce those sorts of materials and more colour into my ‘ready-to-wear’ line and I’m planning to develop that this Summer”

What I particularly admire about Laskowska’s designs are the way in which they blend elements of the fetish with feminine accents and materials.  For example, the soft ribbon on the Wiktoria harness and the ivory lace trim on the Kaja leather cuffs.

Laskowska’s collection includes a playsuit and accessories (cuffs and garters). You can view more images and read more about the brand HERE.

Friday Lingerie Lust: Fraulein Kink

Since I am travelling this week, I asked my friend Lindsay of thatjenesaisquoi.com to take over the reins* for this Friday’s lingerie feature.  Lindsay couldn’t be more perfect for the role.  Her personal blog details her crush on underthings – the things that make her feel beautiful, like she has that je ne sais quoi.  So without further ado I hand you over to Lindsay, who introduces you, Blog Reader, to Fraulein Kink.

Crossing “digital paths” with StyleOnTheCouch, in hindsight, was entirely inevitable. Our personal styles overlap as does our affinity for lingerie and Sarah’s style in particular is just SMASHING. But of course, you know this already. I was so flattered when she asked me to write a guest post.

One of the things I admire most about Sarah is her courage to be tastefully directional on her blog. Specifically, she is one of the first I’ve witnessed to wear a harness as outerwear, a feat I think is both brave and undeniably stylish. So, it was only appropriate to write about Fraulein Kink, a luxury erotic accessories brand that mixes boudoir allure with a downtown chic vibe for a stunning effect.

My favorite range from the Fraulein Kink label is the Lascivious x Fraulein Kink playsuit (image, second on page). Three main pieces compose the suit: a collar, set of handcuffs and belt. They are made of patent leather lined with faux fur and are accented with delicate, adjustable (!) small-link chains. Because they can be worn together or separately, the pieces are perfect for styling over outerwear and would really work for any season. The belt would be a great summer statement piece when worn over a white sleeveless but form-fitting dress, but would also be just as edgy and chic when paired with black for fall. Along the same lines, the Tease Me playsuit (third image) and full-of-fringe Justine belt (image below) are both perfect for spicing up an ensemble that needs a little something extra.

Thank you Lindsay!  You can find Lindsay on Twitter here and follow her blog here.  I’m flying back to NYC this weekend so usual posting resumes next week.  I have in the works two collections close to my heart and since we’re on a roll with peplum, another outfit in this vein. Have a great weekend!
