FULL DISCLOSURE RELEASE EPIC VALENTINE’S DAY EDIT!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and I’m not talking about Christmas. The day of lingerie, Valentines Day, is literally just around the corner and of course we’re raring to get into the spirit of things!
So here at For the Love of Lingerie you can expect a ridiculous collection of curated goodies, picks and everything in between. To kick things off? How about a red and black edit only cupid could have dreamt up? The lovely ladies over at Full Disclosure have curated a collection worth spreading. So without further ado, tug on those heart strings a little and add these bad boys to your wishlist!
Loveday London has been on our hitlist for months and months now – and if you haven’t discovered their newest creations as well as their ravishingly red Leandra collection, you’re missing out.
As far as ouverts go, this set frames your bust beautifully and does so in an enticing Scarlet red color. The Leandra Set is made of soft Loveday London’s signature Italian lambskin leather with under wires for a little lift and together with the additional straps on the side the breasts are sculpted for desire.
With a handcrafted embroidered scallop edge made of Swiss tulle, Bordelle’s Magdalena Set takes balconettes to a whole new level of luxury! In a classic seductive shade of black and featuring Bordelle’s signature elastic straps – we died a little when we came across this one!
Another from the Magdalena collection, the longline in this collection is equally as divine as it’s partners in crime. Unlike the balconette, the longline set is handcrafted entirely from luxury delicate Swiss tulle. A perfect under a sheer blouse or, of course, just on it’s own!
Meet Scarlet. Fiery red and lace to boot, it was love at first sight with this one. With lashings of rich red silk and the finest Italian tulle, Scarlett’s one of those treat yo’ self sets.
Beautifully created in glistening, black, beaded lace, Loveday London’s Oncillia Gown is a showstopper to say the least! The gown is floor-length and has a delicate waistband of Italian lambskin leather in patent black. With vintage cuts and a tied in waist, we’ve fallen madly, truly, deeply for this piece.
Three words. Sheer Silk Georgette! With fine silks and incredible laces being the standard over at Fleur of England, their After Dark Babydoll is no exception. Personally involved with the entire process of each individual item, designer Fleur Turner takes luxury lingerie to a whole new level.
Another incredible UK luxury lingerie label is the world renowned Bordelle. Known for their signature Angela bondage dress, Bordelle have been leading the way in innovative design. Their most recent collections, inspired by the whimsicle Frida Kahlo, have stretched beyond their trademarks and into a land of rich color – Minerva included! So strap yourself in for high speed romance with silk, elasticised ribbon and gold plated accents throughout this collection.
Another from the seductive After Dark Collection, the two piece set adorned with luxurious bespoke embroidery which is hand cut and stitched onto sexy sheer fishnet, leaves just enough to the imagination.
Not a gown kind of gal? Well you’re in luck! Loveday London have taken the bewitching beauty which is the Oncillia Gown and created an equally as astounding beaded lace set.
