These aren’t grainy stills from a steamy 1960s French movie, but you’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise.

It’s actually a new campaign for erotic lingerie brand Kiki de Montparnasse‘s collaboration with model-designer Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, which goes on sale today at Kiki DM’s boutiques and webshop.

The collection is hotly anticipated by many fashion lovers given Julia’s style pedigree (her mother is former French Vogue editor Carine and Julia herself has had an A-list career as a muse for Tom Ford, Lancome and more) and the rarity of a new Kiki DM lingerie collection.

And yes, that’s Julia modeling her own collection.

This set marks also her debut as a fashion designer. Julia has a renowned passion for vintage fashion and she has said her style inspirations are two classic 60s’ goddesses, Liz Taylor and Brigitte Bardot. This campaign seems designed to channel both screen icons, with its evocative mix of smoldering sensuality and playful self-infatuation … not to mention all that tousled, morning-after hair.

Although you can’t see many details of the garments in these stylized images, expect to find comfortable, classic French silhouettes intended for more curvaceous figures. And, being as this is Kiki DM, these are bound to become boudoir must-haves for all the grown-up sex kittens out there.

Look for product details and prices on the Kiki DM website later today. But act fast — this one will make waves.

Fall In Love With Amour From Kiki De Montparnasse

If you read about my obsession with nude shades (see my post on Stella McCartney for a refresher), then it comes as no surprise that I am in love with Kiki de Montparnasse’s Amour loungewear and lingerie collection – and you will be too!

Kiki de Montparnasse, a luxury fashion brand, is known for celebrating intimacy and inspiring the romantic imagination. Named after a sexually liberated French muse of the 1920s, their lingerie and loungewear collections and styles range from ‘daring to darling’. Kiki de Montparnasse strives to create lingerie that combines modern materials, innovative design as well as functionality.

Not only does KikiDM sell lingerie, but they also feature gifts such as jewelry, bath, beauty and body products as well as intimate accessories to enhance romance and indulge in fantasy. Seriously, it’s a one-stop shopping destination for lingerie, accessories and then some…

The new Amour collection consists of pieces created from sensual silks, chiffon and lace. The sumptuous styling evokes a mood of elegant ease; and is it ever sumptuous because I want everything! From sweet, nude bloomers and ruffled babydoll tops, to the sexy corset panty and sensual wrap teddy (my favorite), there is something to suit everyone’s taste. The pieces are offered in black, white, nude and deep rose, and are glamorous to lounge in, but sexy enough to model for that special someone.

Check out some of my favorite pieces of the beautiful collection below. Ah, the French know effortless sex appeal, don’t they?
