Canadian women are accustomed to being inundated with foreign fashion brands, so it’s always noteworthy when one of our own starts making inroads abroad.
With Love specializes in small collections of exquisitely romantic lounging pieces, nightwear and corsets. Its designer/founder Carrie Russell is known for drawing some of her inspiration from English literary classics, so her creations should find a receptive market in Britain.
Love’s Lingerie is stocking pieces from With Love’s holiday collection called Greta, a vintage-inspired throwback to classic Hollywood glamour. The collection includes a kimono-style robe, a corset and garter, and the gorgeous boudoir-worthy Greta sheer mesh gown (above) with its deep neckline and crystal embellishments.
“It was just by chance that we discovered With Love Lingerie when we investigated an unusual pattern of searches on our site,” said Love’s Lingerie manager Gillian Fernandez. “The moment we saw the garments we knew the styles would appeal to our customers.”
Love’s Lingerie is also stocking a new black version of With Love’s Beatrice babydoll from last summer’s collection — an art deco beauty in sheer mesh with a satin collar and belt and mother of pearl floral trim.
You can also find these and other pieces from With Love Lingerie on their Etsy shop.
