Lingerie + Fashion: For Love & Lemons

for love and lemons balmy nights dress 2

Every once in awhile, I like to talk about lingerie-inspired fashion on TLA. I did so most recently with Murmur, and now I feel compelled to visit the subject again taking a look at For Love & Lemons' latest RTW collection. (If the name sounds vaguely familiar, that may be because we also talked about For Love & Lemons lingerie collection in this blog post from last fall).

As you all well know, I love lace and I love mesh. Fashion that hints at skin through the schema of lingerie is very exciting to me. In all of these pieces, For Love & Lemons plays with both lace and the illusion of nudity to create something that's very close to, but not quite, lingerie. I admit, this is a design label I haven't paid as much attention to as I should, but they are very much back on my mind again.

What do you think of these pieces? Any that you would wear?

    As much as I hate to write this down (been trying to do the ‘rise above’ thing) – their Love You Knot Bondage Bralette is nearly identical my Hopeless Suzy Bralette (from the front at least). And it got onto the cover of Marie Claire >_<

    • Cora says:

      I’m sorry, Gaby, but I’m seeing strappy bras from a lot of designers right now, including bras that appear similar to Hopeless’ “Love You Knot” style at a glance. While I definitely saw how the lace overlay on the white mesh bralette echoed Fleur of England’s ‘Jasmine’ design (which I haven’t seen in any other incarnation anywhere), I can’t stay the same about strappy or harness style bras. It’s a design aesthetic that’s appearing in multiple places right now, and that has been for a few seasons. If anything, I’m getting more of a Sofia Sokoloff or La Lilouche vibe from this particular piece.

    The third picture: I need that dress! Preferably in black. Really loving a lot of the clothing from this brand.

  3. Honestly, the fact that they ripped off one of their main bralettes from last season ( basically EXACTLY from Fleur of England’s Jasmine bra means it’s hard for me to really want to give them the time of day. I can’t really admire an indie brand who has no issues with taking their design straight from another one.

    I cannot express how much I love their fashions! Design-wise, most are not built for my shape but if I could I would wear a good portion of their designs. They are so gorgeous! I do wish their size chart gave more information though :/ The enchanted dress is nearly sold out already and I understand why <3

      Yeah, I’m not sure how these pieces would look on me either (they also skew a bit “festival” which is not really my style), but I can still admire them anyway. And I agree, the “Sizing” section is very, very not helpful.
