This editorial depicts what men probably fantasize about how women look when they get together to dress and put on their lingerie. In some respects it's pretty accurate, but the photos also have a dreamy fantasy quality that even we ladies aspire to create in real life!
We personally love these images because they capture intimate moments shared by women. Some of the best bonding times are times like these, almost like photos of a bride getting ready with her maidens before the wedding.
As for the lingerie we're seeing, the stockings are Wolford and Fogal, and the bras/undies are La Perla, Valisere, Madame Sher, and Dior.

House of Holland - Runway

We're not sure if these pieces by House of Holland are lingerie-inspired or just lingerie. But we suppose if you pair anything with a great pair of shoes and perhaps a clutch it becomes ready-to-wear! The vibrant-colored lace from the Spring 2010 collection caught our eye - our favorite colors being the purple, orange and green. The rest of the runway pieces can be seen here, though the images that we posted are pretty much the best of the bunch.
Now that we think of it, these pieces remind us of Deborah Marquit lingerie...the lace, the neon bright colors. Deborah Marquit is the go-to brand for upscale neon lingerie, with pieces handmade in her NYC studio. You can see one of her signature sets below (paired with a Victor & Rolf top). This post has us wanting one of her fluorescent pink sets...that would be amazing with a fluorescent pink pair of Christian Louboutins we've been wanting!

Natalia Vodianova for Etam

The beautiful Natalia Vodianova is the ambassador for the French lingerie company Etam. This being the second year of her three-year term (yes, it sounds so official like she's the head of a government), she is quite stunning in the latest campaign for the Spring 2010 collection. She also happens to be a part of the brand's design process...a sexy girl creating sexy lingerie!
These pieces are exclusively available on Etam's website, and the prices range between $20-$80. Typically items at that price point look amazing in the professional photo shoot, but not quite as amazing in person (sorry, but it's true...we're sticklers for those beautiful, and often times expensive details). That being said, we are happy to share the lovely results of the 2010 Spring/Summer catalogue. These designs and pictures remind of us Princesse Tam-Tam; a French lingerie brand that we used to carry and dearly miss. Do any of you see that as well?

Who's Your Valentine's Crush?

These beautiful images are from the new Crush collection by Fleur of England (formerly known as Fleur T). They are also the latest of the New Arrivals at Faire Frou Frou!
These are the perfect pieces for Valentine's Day...the red is a gorgeous deep ruby red that's wonderfully classic (in contrast, you know how some reds can look so cheap?). The lace trim is a deep fuchsia. Each style is a best-selling shape by Fleur of England, particularly the lace balcony bra (which small-busted to large-busted customers love). Our favorite is the silk kimono...every season its our favorite style.
We suppose you know who our Valentine's Day Crush is...you're looking at it!
You can shop this collection (and read about the details) here.

Coy and Sexy; Calla

images via here

These images are from the Spring/Summer 2010 Calla collection; a French label designed by Calla Haynes. The brand is primarily known for its prints/patterns, but what caught our eye is the interpretation of the bustier in these ready-to-wear looks. The lingerie-inspired look of these pieces is subtle and meanwhile creates a classic look. Perhaps even more eye-catching is the beautiful way in which these pieces were photographed. That top image is just gorgeous, don't you agree?

Damaris, the Movie!

thanks to Miss Narcissus for sharing

Leave it to lingerie designer Damaris to take part in such a fun project! The above images are stills from the short film called "Chore" showing exclusively at Vogue.com. Damaris teamed up with director Justin Anderson and a group of talented people to create this avant-garde video.
The woman in the film does mundane chores in the most exquisite lingerie...something we have admittedly never done. So many people save their fabulous intimates for a special occasion, so it's an interesting concept to see lingerie worn for such common activity.
For Justin's explanation of this project, click here.
The video is semi-NSFW, so please be advised accordingly. It is also quirky and eye-catching...enjoy!

images via Intenzioni

It's Intenzioni week here at Frou Frou Fashionista! We just received a few more images from the lovely Elizabeth Paddock who's the driving force behind the brand. These pictures are perfect for posting (kind of an artsy feel to them), and they showcase Intenzioni's Spring 2010 Innamorata collection. Simply beautiful!
We said it in our last post, but you can become a fan of the brand on Facebook by clicking here (their official website is under construction).

Kylie Minogue in Ibiza

Vogue Spain, Photographed by Vincent Peters

Kylie Minogue graces the pages of Vogue Spain for the February 2010 issue, and she does so as a steamy lingerie vixen! We don't know about you, but Kylie looks a bit different here than what we're used to...anyone else agree?
Nonetheless, we were intent on discovering 'who' she was wearing, and it's pretty much Dolce & Gabbana. Based on the high volume of lingerie looks we've seen from the brand in recent weeks, we're not surprised!
We are particularly enjoying the black & white images; they have an old-fashioned sex kitten appeal. Of course with photographer Vincent Peters there's no going wrong!
