We very recently gushed over Elle Macpherson Intimates’ newest products; we’re not done. No look at the line could be complete without special attention made to the spring/summer Obsidian collection.
There are eight monochromatic, sophisticated must-have pieces in this spring’s collection, created from luxury laces and silks. A hint of Elle’s favorite color, Tibetan blue, makes a special appearance on each item.
The supermodel-turned-creative-director speaks of her inspiration for the line, which was first introduced about a year ago:
“Obsidian is raw and sexy with a sophisticated edge. My intention with the design was to encompass sophistication, style, fashion-forward design with an intense desirability.
The name Obsidian comes from the naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as rock which I found on a recent holiday with friends. It has all the passion and life force of primordial raw energy and seemed a perfect inspiration for this new collection.”
Check out these gems from the spring/summer 2011 collection:
The Frances is sure to be a new favorite. The two-tone French Leavers lace, the demure green ivy shade, and the vintage-inspired shape with a comfortable waistband: what’s not to love?
The Jennifer is textbook Elle. The blush and black lingerie is flattering, dramatic, and glamorous with jewel motifs.
The Eleanor is not for the faint of heart. The sexy sheer number leaves little to the imagination, with its embroidered print strategically positioned on the silk satin set.
The stretch-lace Bea is perfect for everyday wear. Ditch the boring bras and opt for something a little sexier.
The Lizzie’s embroidered lace is so pretty you’ll actually want it to peek out from under your shirt. The Luna’s floral design is a lesson in sensual subtlety. The Nancy, in bamboo cotton and stretch lace is the ultimate in comfort. And the Lillian makes a bold statement with geometric lace; the bodysuit is perfect for fashion-forward lingerie collectors.
The Obsidian collection fits women who wear sizes 32A to 36DD and is available worldwide. Rumor has it that the stock is moving quickly, so don’t hesitate to indulge!
