The centuries-old sport of fox hunting has taken quite a thrashing in Britain over the past few years, but that doesn’t mean all you foxes and hounds out there can’t find other ways to keep yourselves busy.
Modern Courtesan, the UK lingerie label that specializes in amusing and stylish ‘themed’ costume sets, has produced a new range called Hunt that salutes the hunt club crowd in a way that the average country gentleman probably never imagined. If you go into the woods today wearing one of these little numbers … well, you know what comes next.
“All of the Modern Courtesan collections are themed and with Hunt we loved the idea of playing on the equestrian theme in a stylishly seductive manner,” MC founder Kelly Isaac told us.
The emerald-green-and-black Hunt range includes four pieces — the silk body (above), a silk-and-lace bra and thong, and a gorgeous waspie with quilted panels. The set combines silk satin, chiffon and French lace and is also available in an all-black colorway.
And the Hunt set is suddenly very hot, thanks in part to its appearance on the cover of this month’s Cosmo UK, modeled by British TV presenter Fearne Cotton (right). (The same Cosmo issue also features a shot of singer and X-Factor judge Kelly Rowland in a bra from Modern Courtesan’s loungewear line, MC Lounge.)
Pieces in the Hunt collection range top out at £190 for the bodysuit, although MC is offering a £30 off promotion for orders over £150 during October. And for those who really want the full look, the collection includes a Swarovski leather riding crop embellished with crystals for £125.
Modern Courtesan offers international shipping for order placed through its online shop.
This might not be a suitable gift suggestion for the PETA-lover in your life, but it would be a fun outfit for all you would-be country squires who relish the thrill of the chase!
