“I buy lingerie for myself, not even for my boyfriend. I think it is really important for a woman to feel good about herself and buying lingerie that makes you feel good is a great way to start. Even if it’s just for yourself—even if no one else sees it—you know it, you feel it, and I believe it gives you that extra confidence.” ~ Julia Restoin-Roitfeld in Elle Magazine
Julia Restoin-Roitfeld’s collaboration with Kiki de Montparnasse is a vintage inspired capsule collection for the ‘femme fatale’. The campaign images make me want to be Ms Restoin-Roitfeld if I can wake up looking so glamorous in the mornings, as for the lingerie well it’s hard to tell the detail in the sepia-style photos – I feel these are more of a teaser campaign to get me interested. For me that is working!
What I can see, a mixture of satin, lace and bows is appealing. The black basque reminds me of Lascivious’s Josephine which has been on my wish list for some time now.
The launch of the range at the NYC Kiki boutique was a star studded event attended by Carine, Leigh Lezark, Derek Blasberg and Natalie Joos, amongst others. I am hoping this collection lives up to it’s hype, so we can all find the femme fatale within us…
