all images via Kiss Me Deadly
It's always fun when a contemporary designer can reinvent vintage lingerie into a fresh, sultry collection. Kiss Me Deadly is one of those brands that brings the 6-strap garter belt back into its full glory and creates figure-flattering pieces that make you a modern-day Ava Gardner! We just got the Vargas chemise and the Jolie bra/panty/garter set (for ourselves) and had a lot of fun playing around with the new pieces. The Vargas chemise is as effective as a Spanx slip, but as beautiful as a vintage pin-up ad. The Jolie bra lives up to its name with some lovely detail in its stitching and its retro cut.
The Jezebel Longline in red is also pretty stunning...something to put on the wish list.
This UK label has built quite a good name for itself (since launching in 2006), and each design is typically modeled by Morgana, the face of the brand who you see in all of the images above.
There are actually quite a few styles to chose from, with only a small selection shown here. To shop the Kiss Me Deadly brand (which is surprisingly well-priced, we were pleased to discover), click here.
