Friday Lingerie Lust: Eberjey

Eberjey, meaning ‘joy’ is a charming collection of intimates and swimwear.  Co-founders Ali Mejia and Mariela Rovito created their brand with a very soft and feminine aesthetic – using delicate colours and cuts Eberjey produce styles that look very cute and comfortable to wear.

I was recently given Eberjey’s Fanny bralette and boy short to review.  This collection (also image top and below) is my favourite within Eberjey’s current range – soft jersey pieces created in black and French vanilla with ruffles and lace… add in a little retro styling and this collection is perfect for weekend lounging. It’s very soft and the cut of the short is incredibly flattering.

I am often asked for recommendations for loungewear, especially around this time of year as we head towards Christmas gift season.  Eberjey’s have a large collection of chemises (another favourite of mine is the chemise from the Adelaide collection, below) which are absolutely worth a look.  From the number of fashion collections they offer on their website you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Also worth a look is the Eberjey Basics Collection.  I’m putting together some of my favourite basics for a lingerie feature in the near future and the Pima Goddess Bra will be on the list. If you’re looking for a soft cup, uber-flattering cut plunge bra – you need this in your intimate wear wardrobe*.

You can view and purchase Eberjey’s collection of lingerie on their website.  Click this link to view their swimwear.

Thank you to Eberjey and Bollare for my gift!

*because if you’re following my Friday Lingerie Lust posts Blog Reader, you should have more than just a drawer of intimates now.  Yes? Good.

Friday Lingerie Lust: Tatu Couture

This week, Blog Reader, I bring you an exciting new find in directional lingerie.  Luisa Sidoli is the designer behind Tatu Couture, a label integrating tattoos with lingerie design.  The result is an edgy, dramatic collection of graphic, body sculpting pieces – featuring high-waisted knickers, bodysuits and boy shorts.

Now in her second collection, Luisa is providing me with the authenticity of a tattoo minus any potential pain or regret. I’ve always wanted a tattoo (I just need to work out the details, watch this space, Blog Reader) and until then I can happily work with Luisa’s designs.  Images here are largely from Tatu Couture’s second collection: ‘Sweet Surrender’, sitting alongside the previous ‘Illusion‘ range.  I love how Tatu Couture is evolving – for spring summer 2013 we see hints of the 1950s in new shapes and silhouettes such as the Lola Body (image directly above) with its V wiring.

My favourite addition to the collection is the soft cup bra (above).  The introduction of Chantilly lace and ivory as a new colour gives a softness to the otherwise dramatic seductiveness of Luisa’s pieces.

Sweet Surrender oozes an intense sensuality, reflective of a 1950’s Sicily with equal amounts of sex appeal and glamour. It combines a subtle blend of sophistication and rebelliousness with a play on the 50’s silhouettes and the alluring scenes of Baroque Italian culture.” ~ Tatu Couture

Body art meets fashion forward lingerie at Tatu Couture.  I see the bodysuits very much within the underwear as outerwear vein and I have my eye on the ivory Lola body for later in the year….  If you are in NYC you can buy Tatu Couture from Marc and Max on Bleecker Street.  The collection is also available to purchase online (with spring summer 2013 available to buy from November).

So hands up – who has a tattoo? I’d like some inspiration please….

Have a fabulous weekend, Blog Reader! StyleOnTheCouch xo
