Since you may be feeling deprived of my Friday Lingerie features Blog Reader (this will resume this week!) I wanted to share some images from a recent shoot with all my favourites from Lasvicious Lingerie and Tamzin Lillywhite.

You can read more about the new spring summer collection from Lascivious here on StyleOnTheCouch, but in this photo set I love how the hot coral Helena collection in particular comes to life – a gorgeous gift to self or other for sure.  A stand-out piece here is the Tyra cropped tee with harness detailing, worn in the third image with Tamzin Lillywhite’s fabulous pony ear bridle.

More fabulous lingerie collections to come, Blog Reader! Hope you had a lovely weekend..

Tamzin Lillywhite, Blog Reader, is one of the most intriguing leather accessories designers I know of.  Her accessories have graced countless fashion publications – handmade from start to finish in England they boast a fabulous design quality.

For autumn winter 2012 Lillywhite’s collection showed a Joan of Arc, Statue of Liberty-esque theme.  Leather corsets, spiked crowns and cross body bags (akin to a quiver for holding arrows) denote a tough yet feminine armour for the wearer.  Actually Tamzin’s bags are some of my favourite pieces from her collections overall, beginning with her very first range in 2011.

This skirt-harness from Tamzin Lillywhite was a piece I noticed in the HPR London showroom at their Press preview day.  I love the drama of the design and how the back of it sits over a style like this fishtail-like dress from BCBG Max Azria. As an introduction to the designer I hope these images encourage you to check her out in more detail – her chokers and cuffs especially make lovely gifts for anyone who leans towards this particular style.

Happy Sunday, Blog Reader.  Today I have to get my warrior-woman on for the gym (it’s always a struggle to get active at weekends…) there may be some St Patrick’s day celebrations after – happy St Paddy’s Day everyone!

Lingerie Focus: Lascivious SS13

I’m super excited to bring you my first Friday lingerie feature for 2013, with a focus on one of the most fashion forward lingerie brands in the UK, Lascivious.  Usually a label to stick to monochrome for their deeply sexy designs, for spring summer Lascivious have a strong focus on colour: vibrant yellows (Heidi, the very essence of summer), hot corals (Nenah and Helena) and cyan blue (Alicia).  It is indeed a riot of brights with a 90s-inspired feel – the Tyra Cropped Tee being top of my lingerie-wish-list right now.

Along with colour, the eye-catching elements of the collection stem from the new shapes incorporated within the designs.  Inspired by geometric patterns and basket weaving techniques, Lascivious present a very modern collection with teasing cut outs, contrasting binding and weave applique detail.

A collaboration with leather wear designer Tamzin Lillywhite completes this fiercely contemporary jump into 2013.  This collection is deserving of a lingerie feature of its own at a later date, so watch this space, Blog Reader!

You can browse and purchase Lascivious online via their website and at Selfridges department store. JournelleTeddies for Bettys and Red Box Lingerie also stock the brand.
