I love Catherine! She does owe me a lingerie set but I still love her. Her energy is what makes Kiss Me Deadly such a success. I met her at my first ever London Fashion Week when we were positioned next to each other. Of course, that was also the most “eventful” trade show I´ve ever had, so being next to Catherine was probably the best thing that could have happened to me. She knows what I´m talking about. We ended up in vogue.com after all!
I love their Van Doren bralet and the Cerise Jezebel Knicker. I think I know what to ask for from Catherine…
Today you have the chance to win a fabulous Fifi set! Read all the details here.
Today I wish I had bigger boobs… Because today it´s all about Miss Mandalay – the lingerie brand for every fashion conscious woman with big boobs who’s always wanted to wear sexy & luxurious lingerie that actually fits.
I remember the first times I saw Miss Mandalay, I always looked at their banners and thought to myself “Finally a brand that has images of bras for big breasted women that don´t look like boring air balloons”. I love the colours and the models they use, the brand is fun and fabulous. I especially loved the Paige Limeade bra for their fresh cuts and colours.
To enter Miss Mandalay´s giveaway today, refer a friend to Miss Mandalay at their website. Once you refer you are automatically entered into the giveaway and in doing so will be signing up to Miss Mandalay´s mailing list.
All the lovely brands of our Valentines Love Bomb are just spoiling us with glamour! Today we introduce Candy Baker – the designer bringing the spirit of 1920´s back with her dazzling hosiery. Inspired by the “birth of fashion” and the creations of “Le Magnifique” Paul Poiret. The ‘Roaring Twenties’ in all their glory. The glitz and the glamour of the Broadway shows.
I especially look forward to Candy´s Deco collection that´s launching on their website on the 12th February. When I first saw the Gallium Gold Foil print tights at The Lingerie Collective, I knew they were made for me to spice up my collection of LBDs.
Today you have a chance to win Candy Baker Classic Crystal Backseam tights in 50 Den, 3D Lycra and all made in UK. Visit their facebook page or website to find out all the details.
The first Love Bomb will be dropped on the fantastic What Katie Did (WKD). I think Katie is a role model for all young, aspiring lingerie designers as her brand was already founded in 1999 and it has gone from strength to strength, growing into a world’s leading brand of faux vintage lingerie.
Beginning of every year I promise myself to start dressing more ladylike. High heels, corsets, make-up etc. Of course that promise fades fast as I am quite lazy but thanks to WKD this year it might become reality. Browsing their website I felt I needed many of the pieces to make me feel exactly as I would like to, a bit more Marilyn for a change.
The Cabaret Torsolette(right on the above image) that will be presented to a lucky winner who signs up to WKD newsletter today was just one of the many styles that caught my eye. Still being torn between the black and peach options, I soon found myself lusting after the Fonda Bullet Bra. And then with all the Valentines commotion I thought that the Cabaret Velvet Sophia Corset was just something to die for!
Even by just looking at the pieces I felt more ladylike – all the irresistible silver screen glamour … Where´s my gin&tonic?
With Valentines approaching fast Kriss Soonik has teamed up with 9 other amazing independent lingerie brands to shower you with love and gifts. If you think independent brands are in competition with each other then guess again. Seeing all the designers at every season´s trade show is like meeting your family after six months of separation. We keep lusting after each other’s designs and talking knickers all day long. So when Catherine from Kiss Me Deadly approached us with the idea of joining for the Independent Lingerie Brands Big Love-In for this Valentine´s, we were more than thrilled to jump on board.
So what really are independent or boutique brands? Boutique brands are usually the quirky designer brands that you find in small boutiques and department stores rather than mainstream shopping centres. We are not afraid to take risks and experiment with new ideas, many of which are picked up by the mainstream once sales figures are proved. Indie lingerie brands can be anything from one person companies making their own items up to companies that have quite a few employees but have grown up all on their own. The brands don´t have a massive corporation bankrolling them or the huge corporate megastructure that exists behind mainstream brands. We love our customers and it´s genuinely important to us to know what you think, as we´ll then create our new designs and tweak old ones based on your feedback. When for the big corporate brands dealing with customers has become quite automatic and lifeless then you´ll often speak directly to the designers at independent brands.
Starting on Monday 30th January, each day one independent lingerie brand will be offering a giveaway or competition, while the other 9 brands will explain exactly what they adore about the featured brand, and which item they would love to receive as a Valentines gift. We even put together a sumptuous photoshoot which you can already see on The Lingerie Addict´s blog and below.
Watch this space, follow our adventures on facebook and set your twitter hashtags firmly to #lingerielovebomb from the 30th of January until the 10th of February in celebration of our favourite fellow lingeristas!
