Dottie's Delights A/W 2014, A Collaboration with Miss Mosh

Miss_Mosh_FW14_Look 9_204r

With so many gorgeous lovelies saturating the lingerie market, it is rare that an entire collection will literally make me swoon. Sure, there are usually one or two individual pieces in a collection, particularly amongst independent brands, that will really sing. Never, and I mean never, have I wanted to buy every single thing from the line AND could imagine every one of my friends (from all walks of life) loving at least a few items as well. Such is the delightful charm of the vintage-inspired, handmade label, Dottie's Delights.

TLA has been in love with all things' Dottie's Delights since her early days. Designer Stephanie Kuhr has an incredibly focused point of view, translating authentically vintage referenced styles from girdles to 6-strap garter belts into pieces that are equal parts refreshingly modern and lusciously theatrical. And the quality! I've been lucky enough to see Stephanie's work in person was incredibly impressed by her commitment to utilizing period specific materials (often deadstock fabrics and trims) and exceptional construction techniques. These are pieces that are meant to go the mile.

Dottie's Delights' A/W 2014 collection is a provocative collaboration with burlesque performer Miss Mosh. Stephanie and Mosh began their design collaboration a few seasons ago with what has become one of Dottie's Delight's best-selling pieces, the Mosh playsuit. Designed with one of Mosh's fetish photoshoots in mind, this decadently sheer mesh bodysuit was designed to be playfully naughty. The Mosh playsuit works on a wide variety of body types and is surprisingly supportive for such a see-through little number. Holly did a wonderful review awhile back from a full bust perspective and was pleased with both the fit and the boost of confidence it gave her.

With the success of the playsuit, Stephanie and Mosh have collaborated on a full fledged collection titled Sheer Show. Named after one of Mosh's burlesque performances, these pieces are the perfect peep show, designed to accentuate, tease, and showcase the body. Using the finest period-appropriate materials and fabrics, this collection utilizes the softest mesh that clings to every curve. The main inspiration for the line came from the garments and imagery of 1930s and 40s boudoir and fetish scenes. In fact, even the most risque of items like the ouvert tap pant is based on an item from Mosh's personal vintage collection.

This collection is an incredibly smart move for Dottie's Delights. These mesh pieces have a "naughtiness" that is a fetching combination of sweet and saucy that will appeal to a large audience. There is definite vintage flair to the collection without being too derivative that makes Dottie's Delights truly unique. And with the full body pieces starting at just $76, the Sheer Show collection is a whole lot of drama at a very accessible price point.

Since I am smitten with every single piece in the collection, I couldn't possibly begin to tell you my favorites. The strongest pieces are the ones I imagine will be her biggest sellers, the full body pieces. The Mosh playsuit is back with a darling appliqued bow that adds a sweet charm and titillatingly covers the breast (just barely!). There is another playsuit in a sheer stretch lace that has striking lines that offset the delicate lace. The straight neckline, the dip in the back, the wide waist band, the halter bow... all working harmoniously together to draw dramatic lines across the body. And then there's the pantsuit. Being covered up has never looked so flirtatiously sexy. Layering it over other pieces (as shown) makes it even sexier, don't you think?

    I already own a zig zag mosh playsuit that was custom made to my measurements from her. Fits perfectly! I am thinking I need to add that lace one to my collection and I also like that bottom nightie. I also quite like the tap pants!

  4. Irene says:

    I love everything in this collection, it’s so cheeky, playful, and sweet! And I’m really wondering about those gloves, they’re so beautiful. Vintage, maybe?

  5. Priya says:

    Love, Love the ‘Show-off’ playsuite…and the entire line, actually. Will keep an eye out for Dottie’s!

  6. Avigayil says:

    Incredible. I certainly agree about the styling of the shoot – not all pieces appeal to me but the styling is amazing!

  7. Tracy says:

    That tap pant? I need it in my life like nobody’s business.

  8. Evija says:

    Best collaboration I’ve seen in ages. And a definite major respect to whoever is behind the styling of the shoot – I love the idea of the white background and the pale, platinum blonde, red-lipped model (is that Mosh herself?). Not typically boudoir but much more true show!
