It seems indie designers aren’t the only ones giving up on traditional fashion seasons. As even the very largest fashion houses begin to adopt a more ‘seasonless’ approach, Agent Provocateur is leading the way in some respects by releasing a new collection, complete with brand new lookbook, every few months. Their latest range is a collaboration with famed shoes, handbags, and accessories designer Charlotte Olympia, who is perhaps most well-known […]

Over the last few years they have taken a fashion oriented approach to lingerie, knocking out impeccably photographed collections of stylized looks that merge their lingerie and loungewear pieces. It is this seamless integration of innerwear and outerwear, of the intimate and the exposed, that has positioned La Perla […]

I’ve been feeling a little out of it lately. A combination of moving and fatigue and not having really taken a vacation since my honeymoon, all seem to have caught up to me at once and for the first time in years, I’m finding myself struggling a bit. I still love lingerie, and I still love The Lingerie Addict, and I still love doing this, but as I realize that […]

Disclosure: This lingerie was purchased for the purpose of review by The Lingerie Addict. All opinions are my own. Bordelle is one of those lingerie brands who now arguably has a ‘cult’ status; its bandage style creations are instantly recognisable. Celebrities across the globe have sported its signature ‘Angela’ dress whilst its designs can be spotted throughout major fashion press. Indeed, when I first began my forays into the lingerie […]

Before the “Fifty Shades of Grey” phenomenon had the lingerie industry referencing psuedo-bondage in the form of strappy harnesses and cage bras, there was Fräulein Kink. Their playful fringed blindfolds were reminiscent of coquettish eyelashes, and helped earn the brand a spot on The Lingerie Addict Awards in 2012. These early collections introduced the idea that erotic boudoir wear didn’t have to be intimidating. Delicately fashioned in luxe materials, these […]

While there are relatively few networking and professionalization events in the lingerie industry, one of the most revered is also one of the newest — The Oxford Conference of Corsetry, held over the summer at Oxford College. For those unfamiliar, The Oxford Conference of Corsetry (otherwise known as OCOC) is a three-year-old event, created by corsetmakers, for corsetmakers, and dedicated to the study of corsetry. People fly in from all […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie to review free of charge. All opinions are my own. Helen Valk Varavin is one of those names I’ve seen pop up fairly often in the online lingerie world, particularly in the realm of Etsy designers. I must admit, however, that I never really made much effort to actively seek out her designs; the majority of what I’d seen was soft silk pieces which, […]

Disclosure: I was sent this lingerie to review free of charge. All opinions are my own. I’m one of those people that absolutely despises wearing tights; to me, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than those pinching waistbands and baggy crotches. Discovering stockings and suspenders in my early teens was somewhat of a revelation: all of the comfort that I’d been missing in tights but with added glamour. Consequently, after all these […]

While this is very much the season for comfy, cozy, fuzzy robes, it’s also the season for beach vacations and much-needed escapes to warmer climes. I first saw this robe at Lingerie Market back in February, and I’ve been waiting patiently until it was available for sale. Aesethetically, what I like most about Underprotection’s Anika Robe (apart from the loose, unstructured style), is its painterly abstract print. It reminds me […]

Disclosure: This lingerie was purchased with my own money. All opinions are my own. La Perla is one of those brand names that is more or less synonymous with luxury lingerie. Founded in the 1950s, it’s now firmly established as one of the most coveted lingerie labels in the world; open any high-end Fashion magazine and you’re near guaranteed to see its designs scattered through the editorials. This isn’t to […]
