Fleur T - Powder Puff collection

Now that we have reached mid-January, the new Spring/Summer 2009 lingerie collections will start rolling in. Last week we told you about new arrivals from The Lake & Stars, and today we are pleased to announce the new arrivals from Fleur T.
The first Spring collection from Fleur T is called Powder Puff - a sweet concoction of powder pink silk georgette and satin. The palette for this group is subtle and refined, and overall the collection is sweet and feminine. Of course you will see signature Fleur T details, from the back bow-tie on the Ruffle Babydoll, to the back rouching on the adorable Shortie. All of the pieces have gathered georgette silk detailing with the exception of the Georgette Cover (our personal favorite!!).
We think the collection speaks for itself - check it out! The new arrivals are also available here for purchase!

Lingerie & Photography; David Schulze

We recently discovered the photography of David Schulze, and of course wanted to share a few of our favorite pictures including lingerie. The top image includes a bodysuit from Stella McCartney - from the Eve Giggling collection that we have at our store! It's possible that the 3rd picture from the top also shows a Stella bra...it looks like Daisy Dreaming, but we're not positive. In any event, enjoy the latest 'lingerie & photography' post!

Spring 2009 Arrivals - The Lake & Stars

We have received the first of our new Spring 2009 arrivals, and we are happy to announce that we kick-off the new season with The Lake & Stars.
The Lake & Stars (TLS) is introducing new collections every month through May 2009 (including swimwear), and the first groups we received are Chastity and Wild West.
The first collection, Chastity, is already quite popular...and we've just had it a few days! These pieces are made from stretch silk chiffon, which is a very new and romantic choice for TLS. We think the success of this group is attributed to the combination of its contemporary style and feminine romantic material. Also, the color combinations are pretty attractive; steel/ivory, orchid/emerald, and emerald/lime (shown). The signature TLS quirky accent is included on the Chastity Bikini which has a keyhole embroidery detail. We bet this is the first chastity panty you've seen!
The second collection is called Wild West, and includes pieces made from micro-mesh with metallic lace detailing. These pieces are reminiscent of previous collections by TLS, but with a new 'wild west' twist...for instance the bralette and the teddy have an antique crystal collar end detailing the front straps. The good thing is that the western influence is very subtle, and does not take away from the collection's edgy urban fashion appeal. We believe that the must-have piece in this group is the Teddy - we love it!
Unfortunately the garter belts in both collections will not be available...such a shame because they are so cute!
In a few weeks we will be introducing the new swimwear pieces, but in the meantime enjoy the new arrivals! Shop the new collection here.

Dita, Lingerie...Need We Say More?

Here's yet another beautiful photo spread with Dita von Teese, as shot by Mariano Vivanco for Express Styles France. It looks like she's modeling lingerie from her exclusive line with Wonderbra in almost every picture, though it's hard to know for sure (the credits are too small to read!). In any event, we think she does an amazing job layering the beautiful bras with her outerwear. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all dress like this!
