January SALE picks

It is the time of year again when we need to make room for the coming collection and can offer past season beauties at a price you can’t resist.

Ribbed jersey Wings collection – these are the stars of our January sale. Usually we don’t offer discounts on our signature items such as the Wings top, so this is a rare chance to get them 30% off. Only a few pieces left!

EDIT: Wings wrap just sold out 😉

Nude/Orange Lace and sexy Snakeskin – the delicate French lace lingerie set and Polina top have been the favourites of fashion editors throughout last year. Check out the recent Vogue.com feature with Nude/Orange Alison knickers.

The Snakeskin range is classic and unexpected at the same time. It is see-through in all the right places and fits like second skin. Get the last pieces with -30% before they’re gone forever.

Lime Green Lace and Grey Ribbed Jersey – we’ve brought back our cutest line from AW14 featuring soft fabrics and fluffy Marabou puffs. These make a perfect treat, especially with half price 😉

Happy shopping!

Nude + Orange

A long time ago when I designed our SS15 collection I knew there comes a day when we’d have a nice tan and we’d love to wear something to show it off. That’s how the Nude+Orange range was born into the collection. The subtle nude colour complements the skin while touch of orange adds a warm glow. Continuing with the underwear as outerwear theme the stand-out piece of the line is definitely the Polina Top which can be worn as a babydoll or as a summer blouse. Don’t forget to check out the How to Wear story we did on Polina.

Trending Summer!

Summer is just around the corner and that makes it the perfect time to take a look at our favourite SS15 trends. With head-to-toe white, strategical yet sexy cut-out details or sporty polo shirts, you can spice up your wardrobe immediately!

WHITE HOT

No surprise here. What is a summer trend list without some kind of a feature by this particular colour? This season fresh, clean white will be worn head-to-toe. We personally will be rocking the Wings Top and Kirki Shorts combo all summer long. It is as appropriate on the beach as it is on the city streets and around the house. Oh and did we mention that white is great for showing off that sun-kissed skin?

CUT IT OUT

From Erdem to Stella McCartney – just to name a few, one of the most visible trends from this season’s shows was cut-out detailing. Slices, cuts and slits added sexiness and drama to the simple silhouettes that swept the runways and featured on everything from dresses and skirts, to tops and tuxedo-style jackets. We couldn’t resist experimenting with these details that are also featured on our Snakeskin Trousers and the Splash! Swimsuit.

GAME, SET, POLO!

Get ready to pop that collar and channel your inner prep with a polo shirt! Designers like Tory Burch, Polo Ralph Lauren and Alexander Wang all agree that this sporty shirt should be a part of every stylish outfit. Our Kristel Polo Top is just the thing to get you through any occasion this summer. Pearl buttons add glamour whilst the suspenders keep it fun and sporty. And just the right amount of sexy.

3 Ways to Wear: Polina Top

Polina Top is a classic, which we have recently re-launched due to the popular demand. This time it comes in gorgeous nude & orange French lace to make it a must have for summer. As well as being absolutely adorable Polina is every bit as versatile, it comes with a belt which can be worn in 2 different ways –- tightly around the body or leaving the sides floating. Here are some outfit ideas from our stylist. No doubt we all be rocking Polina this summer!

DayLookPolina

For a cute summer office outfit pair Polina with a skirt and flats. Keep the belt tight to emphasize the waist. Finish the look off with gold jewellery to compliment the nude & orange colour combination of the top. Switch the flats for heels to make it a day to night look.

Easy breezy evening look. Wear Polina with a pair of matching nude silk trousers and heels for a night out. These nude tones will really compliment any kind of skin tone.

Inject a bit of glamour to your weekend look by pairing Polina with cool, distressed pair of jeans. Extra points for going full on denim look adding a jacket. Make sure to wear Polina with one our Silvia Bras underneath – beige one for a nude look or perhaps Electric Blue or Shocking Pink to add a splash of colour.

Shed Your Skin

Introducing one of the new ranges for SS15Snakeskin. Don´t worry, there´s no need to complain to PETA. It´s actually a snakeskin-print mesh we are so thrilled about. No real snakes were harmed during the process.

How this range came alive? It was easy – when I saw the material at our French manufacturer´s stand at the Paris fabric show, I fell in love. Of course, at that stage I had no idea what exactly I would design out of the material but I had a positive feeling inside. And now I am really pleased with the results. I think it looks tough yet elegant, sexy yet subtle. It´s cool and modern.

My very favourites from the 5-item range are the Snakeskin Trousers. I know I designed them and I am biased but I can´t stop running around in them. Every time I catch a glimpse in the mirror I see how wicked they are. They basically are harem pants with hip cutouts. They have our signature wide elastic in the waistband and are embellished with The Cat logo metal label. Why I love them so much is that they are comfy yet seductive. They don´t reveal much but what they do reveal is enough to feel sexy. Match them with the Snakeskin Top and you´ll get a cool lounge outfit for the Springtime.

I also can´t write this post without mentioning the Snakeskin Bra because of its invisible silicone straps. A long time ago when I was a teenager and see-through straps were all the hype, I loved them and found them very functional. But then at some point when brands started decorating them with shiny flowers and glitter, I lost contact with them. Let´s say I started hating them. But years passed and there came a moment when I got obsessed with the see-through possibility. So as a result the Snakeskin Bra got the invisible straps that can be worn 2 ways – straight and crossed on the back. Very practical.

I think now´s definitely the time to shed your Winter skin and crawl into something fresh for Spring.

Behind the Scenes: SS15 Moodboard

New year, new collection. Here are some of the things that influenced the Spring Summer 2015 collection.

Dancing
SS15 collection has been inspired by the duality of ballet – the softness of the dancers outfits and the perceived easiness of the movements vs the powerful technical precision of the dance.

Snakeskin
Our favourite of the season is the new Snakeskin mesh lingerie and loungewear in Black. The “it” item being the Snakeskin Trousers with cutout details on the hips – just the right amount of sexy.

White Wedding
I designed the collection while organising my wedding, so of course I had a massive white phase. It definitely influenced the SS15 collection as well. White Ribbed Jersey and Fishnet ranges will launch in March for all blushing brides.

Naughty vs Nice
It’s all about playing with extremes. Dainty beige-orange French Lace injects a pop of colour, black Snakeskin Mesh brings on a strong play with texture whilst Ribbed Jersey & Fishnet in white add a bridal touch to the collection. Balancing the cute with sexy is kind of our thing.
