Every once in a while, a piece of handcrafted luxury comes along that you can’t pass up. Something that’s gorgeous and impractical and completely indulgent.
Hopeless Lingerie consistently offers jaw-dropping works of lingerie-art that fit such a description. Will you layer everyday T-shirts over their bras? Not likely. Will you feel like a screen siren in the privacy of your boudoir? Without a doubt.
Case in point: the Cheryl Silk Bra.
This wire-free pure-silk bra is from a new collection dubbed “The Haunted.” If you’ve ever wanted a sexy piece referencing a horror film, this Evil Dead-inspired item will have you channeling an irresistible villainess.
That’s the Cheryl bra with matching coral silk bow garters in the photo above. The picture below offers another view which, admittedly, looks like an outtake from Evil Dead II.
Hopeless co-founder Gabrielle Adamidis explains the vision she and her sister shared for the collection:
“I took inspiration from the evil force that races through the forest, the wood grain of the haunted log cabin and of buckets of blood featured in the films. These ideas were subtly woven into every piece to create a collection that was both haunting and beautiful.”
And as all good things should come wrapped in a bow, this black bra is topped off with just that. Since Hopeless Lingerie hand-makes each of their items to order, you can request the bow in any color. So if blood red is more your style, don’t hesitate to further personalize this one-of-a-kind treasure.
Pair the silk bra with silk knickers and transform into a vintage pinup girl. This Aussie line won’t let you settle for boring lingerie. Special occasions will never be the same.
