Arabel Lingerie Spring/Summer 2014

Emily Lace Bra, knickers and garter

This is only my second time featuring Arabel Lingerie on TLA, but my word... what a difference a season makes! I already thought Sarah Lister, the designer behind Arabel Lingerie, was on to something cool. Her debut collection, though still a bit raw (as is typical for new designers), very definitely had a point of view and a unique aesthetic. I also liked that Sarah chose to focus on small busts and vegan-friendly undergarments, two categories that don't receive a lot of press and attention in the lingerie industry.

With this second collection, I think Sarah has absolutely delivered on her potential. Not only does the new range include underwired bras, there are some exquisite details here --- from the lace insets on that high-waisted panty to the delicate, gossamer butterflies on the hem and sleeves of one of the robes below (talk about dreamy). Plus, I'm happy to see the return of two of her stronger pieces from last season, the lace cami and ruffled garter panty. It's really delightful when a new designer make such a dramatic leap forward in only her second collection, and I genuinely can't wait to see the third.

What do you think of Arabel Lingerie's latest range? I'm having a hard time picking a favorite, but it'd probably be the lace bra and brief below, though that pleated white robe further down is really taking my breath away.

    Was such a pleasure shooting this collection for Sarah, I fell in love with every set! It’s also really lovely to know that these fit the petite, as I always struggle finding bra’s that fit!

    I love the first set, the camisole set and the grey robe. The detailing on the white robe is beautiful, but white is just not a colour that appeals to me in lingerie. The same design in a pale pink/oyster kind of colour would be incredible. I’m unfortunately not in the target market though – I think this is more aimed at the slim/athletic than the slim and curvy!

      Oh my goodness…you’re right, that robe in a blush pink would be divine! You’re also right that this line is targeted for smaller busts, but since everything is custom-made, you could always talk directly to the designer and get something to fit you. :-)

    Exquisite. I love how delicate and sexy these pieces are. My husband loves me in the sweet/sexy look. Perfect, even for woman who is…ahem…a bit older. Lovely.

    Gorgeous! I really love the blue frilly cami set. It looks so comfy but it’s so feminine and flirty, too!

    Gorgeous! So light and delicate. I love the soft look and the fact that these items look like they’d fit and flatter me.

    Such beautiful details. That first set, in the lovely delicate sheers with the high waist knicker, is definitely my favourite.
