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.”
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….
