Writers and lingerie designers have a lot in common, because both are in the business of telling stories.
That’s why you’ll often hear designers refer to the “stories” in a new collection; as in, “This season we introduce six new stories.” (There’s even a lovely British label called Intimate Stories.)
Brown is the most unloved color in lingerie, and we’ll be damned if we know why.
In the right hands it can create sensuous, earthy garments that hint at old-world decadence and nostalgia.
Still, most brands are loathe to explore the endless possibilities of brunette colorways, yielding instead to a safer, more familiar palette of nudes, naturals and slightly off-color earth tones.
North American fans of the beautiful UK label Fleur of England might not fully appreciate its latest collection, which is a kind of visual tribute to the English seaside town of Brighton.
But it will likely be warmly received by Fleur’s British fans, since almost every Londoner has fond memories of summer holidays spent carousing in the Palace Pier arcades or lounging on swaybacked canvas …
Valentine’s Day awakens the poet in us … or at least it used to, before tablets and tweets zapped the verse out our daily discourse.
This year, though, UK luxury label Fleur of England is hoping to revive the poetry in our souls with a Valentine’s Day contest designed to bring out the Byron in all of us.
It’s awfully hard to keep track of Fleur of England these days.
The independent luxury label releases a steady stream of new lingerie styles — it’s averaging five new mini-collections each season now — and somehow never repeats itself.
