Angela Friedman ‘Cherub’ corset

This 1 of these rare, special small gems. Angela Friedman is a one-woman, independent label that continually produces brilliant pieces. Normally ranging from sweet pastels and soft sheer tulles to a lot more grown up silk and lace garments in jewel tones or bold, classic shades. You may possibly have not too long ago noticed Rihanna, styled to appear like Marie Antoinette in Carine Roitfeld’s CR Style book, wearing a gorgeous ivory corset? That’s Angela Friedman. This distinct small underbust is a powerful, but comfortable, waist cincher style. It sits at a fantastic height on the waist (on me personally) and the does not dig into my rather protruding bottom ribcage the way nearly all corsets painfully do on me. However, it also comes down low sufficient, in a rounded reduce at the bottom, that it doesn’t lead to my decrease stomach to stick out (once again, some thing most corsets do to me, major to the conclusion, most are not created for my physique variety). It laces at the back and has a gorgeous and detailed cherub image on the front, which I’ve never ever seen anything like ahead of. The fabric is a heavyweight twill and the silhouette it offers is subtle, however firmly cinched and houglassy. This is a very ‘wearable’ corset. At the same time, the heavenly, unique print detail and the color scheme would make it the ideal specific occasion or bridal cincher.

These Couture Knickers Will Take Your Breath Away: A Look Back at Strumpet & Pink

Strumpet and Pink – Mimi Gone Higher and Fluffy

Founded in 2002 by artists Melanie Prober and Lisa Z. Morgan, British label Strumpet &amp Pink captured the lingerie world’s imagination with gloriously provocative knickers made from exquisite materials like silk chiffon, antique lace, and crocheted mohair.

Oftentimes, underwear is viewed through a purely sensible lens. For apparent reasons, men and women want to know how their knickers will stand up to all day wear, machine washing, and the different and assorted indignities of the tumble dryer. However Strumpet &amp Pink’s undergarments were wholly unconcerned with such mundane details. This is fairly actually underwear as art.

Textural, conceptual, and completely sensual, Strumpet &amp Pink’s lingerie was meant to be seen, to even be the centerpiece of an ensemble – an inversion of the norms surrounding lingerie. With fanciful names such as “Pussy Willow,” “Key Lime Pie,” and “Lady Hume’s Blush,” the label also showed that couture doesn’t have to take itself too seriously.

Strumpet and Pink – Private Function

Whilst I in no way managed to acquire a pair for myself (at $ 1470 for the high-waist, antique lace “Private Function” knickers or $ 1350 for the high-waist pink knit “Mimi Gone Higher and Fluffy” pair, I’m afraid they have been permanently out of reach), I do miss Strumpet &amp Pink’s creativity, sense of playfulness, and willingness to push the boundaries of what intimates could be. The world of luxury lingerie is a small less luminous without their presence, and I think about we’ll never ever see one more label like them once again.

Do any readers of The Lingerie Addict remember Strumpet &amp Pink? If so, what did you feel of them? And if any of you in fact managed to get a pair, you absolutely need to leave a review in the comments! I’m begging you.

Bao Tranchi Bodysuits

Exactly where do I even start with these bodysuits by Bao Tranchi? They look like spandex architecture for the physique. I wouldn’t confuse this as merely becoming element of lingerie’s predominant strappy trend, the types are far too complicated. The cut-outs and meticulously angled sections of fabric are far more about wrapping the curved female body in angular shapes, in the manner pioneered by Azzedine Alaia and Thierry Mugler in the early 90′s. No, this is not a daintily placed strap or lace-up detail, this is applied graphics and a clever, artistic contrast created to highlight the best of both ‘garment worn’ and ‘body wearing’.

Tranchi’s type flattering designs are in high demand, with absolutely everyone from Gwen Stefani to Jennifer Lopez to Kylie Jenner jumping on the Bao train. Her pieces are also popping up on Tv, in Taylor Swift videos (yes, ‘Bad Blood’) and red carpets this awards season. A designer that can generate an aesthetic seamlessly applied to each formal gowns and undergarments- the seeming polar opposites of the apparel planet- is rare. I also personally really like any lingerie item that can have a pencil skirt or pair of pants thrown on leading to take it from bedroom to occasion in five seconds (or event to bedroom, if you catch my drift). This tends to make Bao Tranchi designs not only visually spectacular, but versatile statement pieces.

Bones Lingerie Bra and Short. This was a single of these sets I saw…

Bones Lingerie Bra and Brief. This was one of those sets I saw and just HAD to have. The quirky and cool metallic pink fabric, cutesy ‘sci-fi Lolita’ vibe and the comfortable-looking, slightly structured/seamed wire-free cup fuelled the immediate need. I was NOT disappointed- I adore this set and it is my current casual fave. The brief is super low-hipped and cut a little small, so I recommend sizing up if you are taller or have a booty that requires more coverage. I’m usually a Small and ordered a Medium and it’s still a pretty low-rider. This style has a high-waisted, full-brief option too and I’d like to order that too as soon as I can, just for options and the fact I am wearing this set so much (and obviously don’t need to wash the bra as much as the briefs). The bra is stretchy, I ordered a Medium in this too (Usually wear a 10/32d-dd) and it fit perfectly. It has no wire or padding, which is what makes it so comfortable, yet the shaped, seamed cups provide more support and shaping than a bandeau or triangle. I love this set, I love this brand. It’s unique and it’s good quality. Bones Lingerie is HERE and also on INSTAGRAM HERE and TUMBLR HERE

Journelle Collection Classics.

I adore these easy, but luxurious, pieces from the Journelle Collection, which is an exercise in eternal power of classic black lace. These are the sort of garments I usually recommend when females ask me what a very good foundation for a lingerie wardrobe is, or when partners ask what tends to make a in no way-fail gift of the lingerie assortment. Bodysuit, robe, slip or suspender, no what style you pick, timeless, quality black lace is always a winner and this collection by Journelle nails it.
