Lingerie of the Week: Asceno by Beautiful Bottoms 'Apia' Romper

One of my goals for this year is to feature more lingerie sets on TLA as they become available to buy. What I mean by that is, every season, we talk about upcoming trends and styles for market, and then, very often, those sets and ranges never appear on the blog again. Which means if there's something you really loved, you may miss it. I want for there to be a stronger connection between market previews and actual features here on The Lingerie Addict this year. While the market is general is tending towards the boring, there are absolutely some standout pieces from several designers that deserve your support.
Last year, the company formerly known as Beautiful Bottoms undertook an extensive rebranding campaign into Asceno. I spoke informally with the designers about the name change last year, and they said Beautiful Bottoms was beginning to feel a little too restrictive; they had high hopes for the brand and the name was taking away from that. I admit to feeling apprehensive at first (changing your name after several seasons is a huge deal), but Asceno has grown on me, and I'm looking forward to this newer, more sophisticated direction for the brand.
Asceno's prismatic "Apia" print was a definite highlight of the market season for me last year. There's something just a little out there about this geometric, almost crystalline pattern, but the soft colors help keep it firmly in the realm of wearability. Blush and rose tones are beautiful for spring/summer, and I love how this delicate silk romper feels so seasonally appropriate without resorting to florals.
There's also a coordinating pajama set I quite fancy. While I've become a dedicated loungewear addict over the past few years, I have yet to acquire many pajamas (and I own exactly zero silk pajamas). This might be just the thing to splurge on for an upcoming anniversary.
What do you think of Asceno's look? And do any of you own silk pajamas?
