Kristina: Lucky me! I am officially the proud owner of this beautiful Chantelle bra set from their Paris Paris collection. This exquisite group features an intricate jacquard pattern which creates a convincing tromp l’oeil effect of delicate leavers lace.

The event was Lingerie London and it brought together two powerhouses in the lingerie industry – Agent Provocateur and Atsuko Kudo, for a good cause – the microfinance non-profit The Seven Bar Foundation. I had the opportunity to interview Renata Black, chairwoman of Seven Bar, the day […]

Our final guest post for this week features the work of Israel Freeland, who photographs under the name of A Reflection of Light. I confess that I’m no artist, much less a photographer, but I really love Israel’s work and I have ever since I first saw it many, many months ago. His work feels intimate, yet approachable, and just a little bit imperfect in a way that makes it […]

Unsurprisingly, this point of view caused a lot of ripples in the lingerie community, most of them negative. I reached out to Linda […]
