Secrets In Lace: LFW Runway Show
Posted by Lingerie Talk | October 27, 2014

Part Parisian floor show, part striptease, the runway presentation from iconic American brand Secrets In Lace was the closest thing to pure vintage fashion at Lingerie Fashion Week — an illusion that was spoiled only by the appearance of vivid candy-colored designs from the brand’s SS15 collection.

The Virginia-based distributor of retro undergarments used the LFW stage on Friday to show how far it has come in the 30 years since it began as a supplier of old-fashioned nylons.

It was the liveliest production in Lingerie Fashion Week‘s busy schedule, with SIL offering updated versions of vintage garments that celebrate the classic female figure. There were no coat hangers in this colorful parade, which managed to make nostalgia seem both fresh and relevant.

Here are some of the highlights from Secrets In Lace‘s fashion show, with founder Dan Whitsett appearing for a well-earned bow at the end.

Posted by Lingerie Talk | October 27, 2014

New York newcomer André3 Ciccarelli had not one but two showstopping moments in her Lingerie Fashion Week runway show on Saturday.

But the crystal-and-florets French lace Salar jacket (above) and the gasp-inducing Halite lace lounge pants (below) were just two of the highlights in the exceptionally elegant presentation.

It was an impressive debut for the made-to-order label, which offers couture craftsmanship and luxury French and Italian fabrics to customers at the upper end of the market.

Below are all the looks from André3 Ciccarelli‘s fashion show.

Play Out Underwear: LFW Runway Show
Posted by Lingerie Talk | October 27, 2014

Lingerie Fashion Week always seems to produce some unforseeable headline-grabbing moment that makes people think about their undies in a new way.

This year, that moment belonged to the New York upstart Play Out Underwear, which stormed the runway on skateboard and absolutely demolished gender boundaries with its squad of androgynous models.

The energetic show was a triumph for founders Abby Sugar and Sylvie Lardeux (below), who turned to Kickstarter to raise money to pay for the cost of mounting their runway production.

A highlight for many in the crowd was the skateboard antics of members of All Girl Skate Jam, which may be responsible for a new trend of underwear-clad boarders on the streets of America next summer.

More meaningful, though, was Play Out‘s inspired, multi-racial community of models, who showed off the brand’s new assortment of men’s and women’s “gender-neutral” boxer briefs. This is what pride is all about.

Below is a selection of images from Play Out‘s first runway show. You can learn more about the brand here and shop at their webstore.

You! Lingerie: LFW Runway Show
Posted by Lingerie Talk | October 27, 2014

Maternity specialist label You! Lingerie made headlines last year when it stunned the crowd at Lingerie Fashion Week by sending a parade of pregnant models down the runway.

The Georgia-based brand tried the same approach for the latest LFW show on the weekend, but this time the emphasis was clearly on the company’s increasingly broad range of style options.

Expectant moms in all stages of pregnancy proudly modeled You‘s colorful assortment of fashion maternity undergarments and loungewear — including some strappy styles that are more often targeted at younger consumers who haven’t yet begun to think about starting a family. A liberal dousing of body glitter and some metallic hardware accessories added to the contemporary vibe of the show.

Below we have a gallery of just some of You! Lingerie‘s groundbreaking LFW show and equally progressive fashion range.

Black roses and handcuffs. Whips and chains and silken devil’s tails. What else would you expect to find at a lingerie show?

With fetish touches and a light-hearted approach to bondage garments, New York label Love Cage made a memorable debut on Saturday at Lingerie Fashion Week.

The new RTW collection from Sex Trash designer Stephanie Paterek combines luxury fabric choices with modest restraints and supple leather detailing. As for the dude in the black mask, well he’s not for sale so find your own.

Below are highlights from Love Cage‘s fashion presentation at LFW. Learn more about the new label here or on their webshop.
