Well, well, well… if you were to be caught in a sexy web… it would look just like this.
Absolute no secret I love Charlotte Olympia. Everything the woman does, I am sold.
This collection for Agent Provocateur, launching today (18 Jan) at Charlotte Olympia and Agent Provocateur shops and online, as well as at Net-a-Porter, is no different.
“I almost have more lingerie than shoes! Both brands share similar sensibilities – we’re feminine, playful and love glamour” , says Olympia. And it shows. The pieces are sexy and flirtatious.
Obviously vintage inspired, modelled by Julia Restoin-Roitfeld and inspired on the likes of Anne Bancroft in The Graduate, the plays with Charlotte’s signature themes: cats, spider webs and leopard.
Somehow, it makes £95 for three cat knickers worth the money…. They are, after all, Purrrfect!
Here are my favourites.
Caught in Charlotte’s Web Bra, £295, and Brief, £345
Wild Teddy, £395
Wild Cat Nap set, £395
More is More boots, £445
When I heard my beloved V&A was going to open an exhibition called “Shoes: Pleasure and Pain” I was filled with excitement, after all, it focuses around my magic word: shoes.
Not only that, it looks at footwear extremes, a subject, in fact, I am particularly fascinated by. On top of it, these 250 pairs, spanning 2,000 years, 20 countries and 70 designers, chart cultural, sociological and historical significance of shoes, as well as their power of transformation, which I can personally vouch for. And obsession.
You can read my squees of excitement here when I found out about the exhibition – so you can only imagine the extra loud squee for me being at the preview and seeing it all three days before it opened to the public.
Lingerie – all of us girls wear it. And it is (most of the time) a behind-closed-doors thing – and that is the name of Agent Provocateur campaign for SS14. And it is shot by no one less than Miles Aldridge, the master of glam in the common, ordinary place photography.
