How hard can it be to find a simple, tailored triangle bra? One that’s not too sporty or clingy and has adjustable straps? My usual go-to for A-cup bras is American Apparel; their casual triangle bras have served me for years and I love a sporty stripe. But sometimes you want something more grown up, especially if it might be a bit visible under a dressy blouse or top.
My PR friend introduced me to Rossell bras a while ago and I immediately liked the sound of them. Made in Portugal in silk and cotton, with supportive boned seams and elegant old fashioned S-fastenings, they’re so simple yet gently engineered. (more…)
Off anywhere nice on your hols? Of course you are. In which case you’ll be wanting to pack a few personal treats of the luxe, lace variety in your Globe-Trotter luggage. Agent Provocateur’s summer lingerie is big on saccharine sweetness with a side serving of neon in the details. (more…)
There’s a time and a place for logo-waistband cotton smalls… but this isn’t one of them. No, this is the time for sweet nothings, lace fripperies and sheer silk sets, preferably in neon-accented colours or playful floral prints. I scooped up a caseful of Agent Provocateur goodies for my latest Disneyrollergirl editorial shoot, with Chiara Romagnoli behind the lens. If you’re in the mood for bright smalls, I recommend the candy-coloured lace bras, lovely under sheer blouses or summer’s indispensible white boyfriend shirt.
The bodysuits are nothing short of fabulous, whether frilly and bohemian, or gamine in black ruffles. And should you be on the lookout for decadent nightwear-slash-loungewear, then I can highly recommend the signature satin pyjamas – beautifully cut and seductive as hell…
