Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Inspired by the romance of the 1970’s, Agent Provocateur’s new Spring/Summer collection (featuring French actress Mylène Jampanoï) is all romance, lace, and flowers. Agent Provocateur has found their formula and they’re sticking with it; the Fifi and Daena pieces in particular strongly resemble lines from previous collections. Of the four sets, I believe the Mercy corset is the strongest piece, especially when paired with […]

Since I’m […]

For all my corsetieres reading this, Sidney Eileen has a tutorial on how to floss a corset. I love flossing on corsets. It’s such a beautiful decorative touch, and probably a bit practical too since I’ve heard it helps keep the bones within the corset. Speaking of corsets, fashion historian Valerie Steele breaks down many of the myths surrounding corsets. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Dr. Steele wrote […]
