Lulu Tout Coco Lace GreyLast month I was the privileged guest of Figleaves at their blogger dinner, a wonderfully indulgent night of wine, supper, and lingerie (a perfect combination in my book).  It was one of my first lingerie blogging events in London, giving me the fantastic opportunity to not only browse the new intimates at Figleaves, but also meet some fellow blog writers I have followed for a long time but had never met in person.  These include Glamazon Blog, Undercover Lingerista and Bunnipunch (we did call each other by our real names at dinner, but I admire these ladies so much I want you to visit their blogs, so blog names it is).

Lulu Tout is a brand new lingerie collection exclusive to Figleaves.com – pretty separates, French inspired, made from soft lace with stylish details such as embroidery and mesh.  Lulu Tout will appeal to those who like classic, seductive silhouettes from their lingerie – Amelie features bead inspired embroidery in aqua and black colourways; Fleur Rose possesses an elegant flower pattern with pleated satin straps. Finally, Coco Lace has a pretty scalloped edge with lace and embroidered pinstripes; available in rich emerald green and charcoal grey.

All styles are available in a range of sizes starting from a 30 inch back up to a H cup. And with prices ranging from the oh-so-reasonable 15.00 GBP for a short; 24.00 GBP for a bra, this raises Lulu Tout to the status of ultimate go to brand for beautifully feminine lingerie with a stylish twist.

Stay tuned for part two of my Figleaves post – because they do swimwear too, don’tcha know….

With thanks to Wingfield PR for a lovely dinner.

IDSarrieri-Lingerie-SS14I.D. Sarrieri is couture lingerie with a vintage feel, an opulent mix of silk satin, silk mousseline and Chantilly lace.  For SS14 they bring us another wonderfully glittering (Swarovski elements provide that additional dash of glamour) and seductive collection of gowns and short dresses, bra and brief sets and my favourite I.D. Sarrieri signature piece, the peplum bustier.

For the woman who appreciates the finer things in life, and for the man who wants to fulfill her dreams, I.D. Sarrieri  designs are also amongst the most glamorous and luxurious in the world. With tremendous attention to detail, the brand mixes traditional lingerie contour techniques to achieve modern couture status.

My favourites from SS14: Audrey moulded padded bodysuit; high waist maxi brief and Dominatrice set.

Now available to purchase via their online shop, visit I.D. Sarrieri to see more from SS14 couture.

A&VD_lingerie_5Arsenic et Vieilles Dentelles is lingerie as second skin. A lovely email from A&VD designer Laure Hurlet found its way to me earlier this month, and I am very pleased to show her debut collection, released in July 2013, on StyleOnTheCouch.

Let us be clear, Blog Reader, when A&VD say ‘lingerie is arsenic’ you know you are in for a collection with deadly appeal.  A small but perfectly formed capsule range of sheer and soft cup bras, briefs and thongs is for women who want to wear beautiful lingerie everyday.  Hurlet believes that through lingerie women can compose, have fun, expressed their personalities and be able to reveal their own sensuality. A perfect match with the ethos of my Friday Lingerie features, A&VD comes complete with a manifesto declaring allegiance to Slow Fashion, based on the principles of sustainable fashion – celebrating unique style and encouraging the education and promotion of responsible consumption.

My favourite piece from the collection is the Dixie Lee Pea brief - a beautiful high waist style made from sheer fabric with button up detail at the back. The collection also includes a cheeky rope tie – a perfect accessory for a wickedly seductive line.
