Feu De Venus Lingerie

It is, Blog Reader, a delight to bring you Feu de Venus as this week’s Friday Lingerie Lust. A truly lustworthy lingerie collection, Feu de Venus is a celebration of the divine female form.  Styles like the Axelle Waist Clincher allow you to get lost in a fantasy of intensity and intimacy.  Continuing the distinctly sexual and erotic theme, the Ophelie Plunge Bra - crafted in exquisite, deep purple, silk satin with ruching details at the cups and back straps – guarantees you will be the centre of attention. Black satin bows provide punch for the look’s final touch.

With a focus on graphic lines and architectural shapes that serve to highlight the female form, fall / winter 13/14 is a powerful and seductive display of silken splendor.

My favourite from the collection is the Elsa set; a beautiful fish net and scallop lace soft cup bra with matching brief and suspender. The detail on the brief is a lovely touch, with criss-cross ribbon at the back revealing sections of skin.

Friday Lingerie Lust: Bordelle Bridal

As we enter wedding season, this is my first Friday feature dedicated to bridal lingerie.  One of my favourite labels, the UK based team at Bordelle have produced a wonderful new collection of bridal designs in keeping with their provocative and sexy aesthetic.

I was very lucky to see some of the pieces from this collection back in February when I visited the Bordelle team in London.  Sticking with signatures such as the cage dress, waspie and open cup bra, Bordelle work with a stark white, creamy champagne and blush colour scheme and play with some delightful new fabric textures.  Tulle and hand crafted lace bring a softer, lighter touch to their classics.

My favourite pieces from the new collection are the Confetti Lace Angela Dress (top image, third along) and the Gia Shelf Bra and Bettie High Waist Brief (below, left).

What shouldn’t go unnoticed about the new line however are the wonderful accessories that compliment the lingerie.  A series of bracelets, pearl garters and nipplets have also been produced.

So there you have it. Get thee to the altar……!

Select pieces from Bordelle’s new bridal collection are now available at Mis En Cage - a place I really need to visit in Paris – and will be launching soon on the Bordelle Website.  Images: Bordelle, Mis En Cage, Petite Coquette.

Note: Bordelle recently collaborated with the charity Oxfam and supermodel Daphne Self on ‘The Big Bra Hunt‘, re-working a Jean Paul Gaultier classic. Their Daphne Conical Body is available to buy online, with 15% of proceeds donated to Oxfam’s campaign in aid of Senegalese women living in poverty.  Congrats Bordelle for both your amazing design and working so hard for this cause!
