idsarrieri collection 2016

Figleaves US

ID Sarrieri is 16 years old this year – founded in Paris, the brand stands out through its use of sensual shapes, hand-made details, and beautiful fabrics. Their use of chantilly lace, silk mousseline, jacquard, and embroidered laces are what luxury and couture lingerie are all about.

If you’ve been following my instagram account, you’ll know that the Fall/Winter collection is pretty much all firmly on my wishlist. Here are my favourite designs.

I have to admit that I get a little over-excited by Harlow and Fox – the photography is stunning, their choice of models means that I can actually see what the lingerie would look like on something closer to my body shape, and of course the lingerie is just sumptuous. The choice of materials and cut means that it’s actual luxury, not just luxury because of the price tag.

I’ve been in love with La Perla silks and styling for years. Unfortunately the maximum cup size they offer is a D, so I have to enjoy that part vicariously through friends who can buy their bra sets there and make the most of the occasional cami or gown that fits.

The latest collections at La Perla are predictably gorgeous – some of the styles have been inspired by Oscar Niemeyer – a Brazilian architect. The strict sculptural style is beautiful on the runway, but it’s always a little too stiff for me.

Last year two of my absolute favourite brands worked together to produce a seductive video – X.

Just in case you didn’t have a chance to see it, here it is in all its mouthwatering glory:

I love everything about it – the soundtrack, lingerie, the choice of models, and the slightly uneasy feeling you get from some of the frames. It’s perfectly erotic without being too explicit – exactly what I’d expect from Coco De Mer.

Now they’re teaming up again to show off the AW16 collection, including the Angelica halter bra with wet look lace and silk accents, the Ranelagh basque with lurex and silk georgette, and the Alyssa babydoll.

Here are some behind the scenes peaks. I can’t wait to see the finished thing.
