Blush_Lingerie-AFTERMIDNIGHT_1From the look and style of the editorials that Blush Lingerie produce, you would never think that this brand is so reasonably priced. That’s one of the main reasons I love Blush, they have a wonderfully down to earth attitude to creating beautiful, accessible designs; styles that can bring a woman confidence and inspiration. I previously wrote about the brand HERE, highlighting their super sexy secret agent styled campaign back in 2011, a series of sultry bra and brief sets, lace camisoles, dresses and bodysuits.  Their mission back then was “to provide flirtatious and affordable luxury to women worldwide with the creation of sensual, voluptuous and urbane intimates”.  I’d say they have succeeded and built upon this statement; with current collections Paramour, Sinfully Yours, After Midnight and Victory proving that Blush’s new mission is to help women find a new source of feminine strength through their lingerie.

My favourite of the new collections is After Midnight, a black and white / blue and black lace and modal series that works just as well under daytime clothes as it might worn to impress in the evening.  A close second comes Paramour, with its poetic scalloped lace and retro styling.

Blush is a huge amount of luxe for less.  For those of you already planning your Christmas lingerie shopping or looking for that special gift, be sure to check out the full range on their website HERE. They ship worldwide, so there is no excuse not to have the perfect lingerie sent right to your door (alternatively, ask Santa).

I also have an exciting giveaway with Blush coming up over the next few weeks, so keep checking back!

Friday Lingerie Lust: Reckless Wolf (Part I)

RecklessWolf_Lingerie1When Reckless Wolf launched last year, designer Jade Little handed us a dynamic fusion of underwear and outerwear inspired by independent, rebellious girls. 

Still provocative and style-led, the brand have added several lines of white lingerie to their now largely monochrome-themed collection and included new designs that nicely extend each individual range. Part II of this Reckless Wolf series will introduce you, Blog Reader, to ‘Raw’, ‘Prowl’ and ‘Wild’, new for 2014.

Prey has always been one of my favourites, now with a longline bra and high-waisted knickers.  In ‘Caged‘ you have one of the most perfect inner-wear/out-to-wear bodysuits; combing translucent and opaque fabrics and with a low back, the chevron pattern and cheeky cutouts (a Reckless Wolf signature) are super flattering.

I love this editorial from the brand, featuring their Cage white crop top and white leg strap brief. Shot in LA with a heavy dose of British attitude, this pretty much sums up the confident, fearless attitudes of the woman who wears Reckless Wolf.

Lingerie Lust: Hatsumi’s Laundry

I recently stumbled across Hatsumi’s Laundry on instagram – a delightful and highly covetable Australian lingerie label selling a capsule collection of soft cup bras and briefs.  In an interview with Kester Black blog, designer Jemma Aickin described how she turned her hand to lingerie when she was quite simply; ‘bored’ and having trouble finding undergarments that she really loved:

“I love soft cup bras but they can be hard to come by. So one day when I had nothing better to do I started making some of my own things and it just went from there! I am basically self-taught, I have never studied, but learnt how to sew when I was young and have done a few short courses along the way. I have a patternmaker & a local manufacturer working for me now, but I still do as much as I can myself.”

As with another designer I have much love and respect for, Gabrielle of Hopeless Lingerie, who instagrams her design inspirations on a daily basis, Hatsumi’s Laundry’s tumblr is a veritable feast of Aickin’s influences, from muses such as Kate Moss to everything in monochrome (you can see why this brand is right up my street) along with inspiring aesthetics.  With collections FlowerBed Blackout and Cloud Chamber – many pieces from which are already sold out – you have designs that are delicately soft as well as chic.

Check out the entire collection over at Hatsumi’s Laundry.
