Friday Lingerie Lust: Strumpet & Pink

A slightly different lingerie feature this week Blog Reader, as we have a particular focus on the derriere.  Or, at least the type of derriere I imagine Marie Antoinette to have should she be alive in 2011 and searching for her perfect brand.

She would have to travel to England, naturellement, to Strumpet & Pink, to capture these amazing designs (rather, works of art) created by Lisa Morgan and Melanie Probert. Each of their pieces is individually named, for example “Rosette Cheeks” and “Lady Chatterley’s Lover”* and are almost, I fear, too pretty to wear….

I’m rather fond of any collections that are laden with contradictions, so no surprise that I love these hand made pieces from Strumpet & Pink.  They are soft and feminine, designed with a certain fragility and sensuality, yet they are also far too much fun to be taken seriously.

The fabrics used for the designs are a celebration of fashion and frills: satin, chiffon, ribbon, silk….. one of my favourite lingerie boutiques Faire Frou Frou describe the knickers as “wearable art, kind of like a couture gown.”

I may just have found the McQueen of the lingerie world.

Now, these designs are not cheap, but if you’re thinking of a serious splurge then you can purchase from Faire Frou Frou and GlamAm.  Or, like me, you can just admire these gorgeous designs here.

Would love to hear your thoughts on these pieces…. Happy weekend all! xo

*in case you are wondering – image top: name = “Pussy Willow”. These two designers have a cheeky sense of humour….
