ID Sarrieri - Fall 2009






images via ID Sarrieri

Ahh, ID Sarrieri, what a beautiful lingerie brand. We often compare this label to La Perla in terms of its classic, elegant and upscale style...and perhaps it's even more high-end (that's open to debate). In any event, it is one of the world's top lingerie lines that is simply striking.
We have carried the brand at Faire Frou Frou in the past (see some sale items here), and we wish we were selling the new Fall collection as shown above (but issues with our temporary boutique closure aren't helping matters). Not only are the pieces so beautiful, but the photographs are amazing as well. Nothing but the best from this Romanian lingerie line.
You can shop the current collection here!

Sonia Rykiel pour H&M

On December 5th, the official Sonia Rykiel pour H&M capsule collection launches in approximately 1,500 H&M stores worldwide. This is the first holiday collaboration for Sonia Rykiel (who we have carried at Faire Frou Frou) and the first designer lingerie collection for H&M. We're curious if this will be as big as the H&M Jimmy Choo launch...but then again the masses seem to be much more devoted to their designer shoes (and we completely understand that, being shoe lovers as well as lingerie lovers).
We're most excited to see the footage from the runway show that will take place at the Grand Palais in Paris on December 1st. Just looking at the sneak peek in the video below has us very excited to see the end result!
According to the Sonia Rykiel pour H&M press release that was sent to us:

Seduction starts at home with pieces in fluid velvet, silk and satin, offering a luxurious approach to loungewear, while separates feature Rykiel’s signature multi-stripes and strass. Playful accessories including brooches, headbands, pillows and slippers complete the collection. (we love that!)
“The Rykiel style is more than fashion, it’s a lifestyle,” says Nathalie Rykiel, president and artistic director of Sonia Rykiel. “It represents the ultimate in French elegance. It is very Parisian, very Left Bank, and the incarnation of the Saint-Germain-des-PrĂ©s woman With this lingerie collection, the house’s signature chic and seductive style is available to all women,”

This post is inspired entirely by the What Katie Did bullet bra that Claudia Schiffer is wearing in Vogue Russia. Not only are we so happy to see the continued press from this amazing brand, but we were also so excited to discover this gorgeous editorial as a result! Aren't the colors just amazing?
Granted, What Katie Did is the only lingerie credit in these images, but they were so pretty we had to share most of them. And yes, we love sharing Claudia Schiffer pictures!

Lingerie-Inspired by Karl Lagerfeld



Elle Italy, October 2009
photos:Karl Lagerfeld, Model: Iekeliene Stange


This shoot, by Karl Lagerfeld for ELLE Italy, was inspired by the works of surrealists artists Man Ray and Salvador Dali. Of course we spotted some lovely intimates, such as a tulle bustier by Nina Ricci, a fashionably retro girdle by Christian Dior and a lilac satin guepiere by Gaultier Paris. The images are sophisticated with just the right touch of quirkiness. We love how the shoot was accessorized, from the opera-length gloves to the fun headpieces. For more images from this editorial, click here.

Andres Sarda - Runway for Spring 2010

Andres Sarda is always a fun brand for us to keep an eye on because of their semi-annual runway shows. In the lingerie world there aren't too many Fashion Week runway shows (we're talking large-scale like Chanel, Christian Dior, etc.), so when we see a designer like this pull out all the stops, we're excited! Andres Sarda debuted its Spring 2010 collection, consisting mainly of swimwear, at Madrid Fashion Week back in September. The pieces are inspired by the French Riviera during the 1970s, which we definitely see in those navy/white striped swimsuits!
Some of the lingerie pieces reminded us of Christian Dior...not a bad comparison! See the rest of the collection here.

Romantica, Dolce & Provocante

We love the header for this Vanity Fair Italy editorial, "Romantica, Sexy, Dolce & Provocante" - doesn't everything sound better in Italian? These images, by photographer Daniela Federici, capture a seemingly innocent but flirty Cintia Dicker. The lingerie you see is by Dolce & Gabbana, Chantelle, Kristina Ti, Benetton and Intimissimi.

Bullets & Ruffles



images via here

This has to be one of the cutest sets we've seen in a while! The lingerie in this post is actually a limited edition set created for the 70th Anniversary of British lingerie label Rigby & Peller. Inspired by pieces in their lingerie archive, this adorable frilly hi-waist panty and bullet bra are among only 150 'Platinum Range' sets created by Rigby & Peller. That might explain why only sizes 30C-34DD are available...but the panty is still available in S, M & L. Naturally a company with 70 years experience would create something so adorable, eye-catching and reminiscent of the past. Luckily for Rigby & Peller, this style is exactly what so many customers are buying today!

We finally posted part of the new Fifi Chachnil Fall 2009 collection to our website! This collection, called Sortir en Culotte, is really the perfect assortment in terms of luxury essentials. You have silk, lace and the color black; pretty much a combination everyone loves!
We actually have plenty more Fifi Chachnil items to post, but this is the complete group from Sortir en Culotte. Don't you just want every piece?! We're in love.
We will post on the remaining new Fifi items next week (expect to see pink, white & lilac).
