If they produced nothing else all year besides their annual calendar, the good people at French lingerie label Aubade would still have countless fans among fashion and art lovers everywhere.
The 2012 Aubade calendar — the company’s 14th annual keepsake — is as exquisite as always, and an unequaled collection of tastefully seductive images in polished black-and-white. With the exception of the exclusive Pirelli calendar, it’s hard to think of anything similar that rivals Aubade’s annual showcase.
Printed versions of the calendar are gifted to Aubade customers at their European shops, and can be downloaded from the company website later this fall.
Shot this time by photographer Thomas Paquet, the calendar features the most alluring and inventive styles from Aubade’s Fall-Winter 2011-12 lingerie collection (plus one swimwear shot). It also includes the most recent set of the label’s legendary “Lessons in Seduction” (example: No. 118 — ‘Let the hunt begin’).
