Lingerie Wishlist: Carine Gilson Printed Silk Satin & Lace Lingerie Set

Of all the lingerie brands I have yet to try, Carine Gilson is the one I most covet. In a world where the phrase "luxury lingerie" is thrown around all too often to refer to definitively average products, Carine Gilson is a reminder of what true luxury lingerie can be.

The brand's attention to detail is world-renowned; their fabrics and laces legendary. The reputation they've built in the world of intimate apparel is unparalleled, with our columnists describing the label as "100% luxury," "the crème de la crème," "the epitome of luxury in the lingerie world," and "the reigning queen of luxury lingerie." One doesn't acquire that sort of prestige by accident. One earns it by being the very best.

While I'd ideally like to own one of Carine Gilson's robes or camisoles one day, this bra and panty set is what's caught my eye for now. At $760 for both pieces, this is by no means an affordable indulgence for the average consumer, but it is the chance to own, what is in effect, heirloom lingerie. So much lingerie (like most items of clothing nowadays) is made with the assumption that it will eventually end up in the landfill. But this set is meant to be treasured, and, with the proper care and attention, could likely last for years, if not decades. And while I don't know if this will be the year I make Carine Gilson a part of my personal collection, I do know it will be a defining moment in my lingerie addiction when it happens.

    How lovely to read such things! (Full disclosure here, I am the manager of the London boutique) Please do come and see us on your visit next month. But you should know we are having our annual summer holidays/closure Aug 2-16….I hope that’s not a disappointing clash… Paula x

    All I can say is don’t try it on if you don’t want to lust after it….once you try it you can understand why it is so expensive and highly coveted. I don’t own anything from Carine Gilson but it’s not because I don’t want it!! The print is stunning and the lace is such high quality. I love this set too! Sometimes Barney’s marks her collection down quite a bit at the end of the season, so it’s worth keeping a watch on.

      I believe you. Our columnist Karolina has had nothing but amazing things to say about Carine Gilson, and she knows how luxury lingerie is supposed to feel (and be made…apparently, the construction is impeccable). I hope to try on a few pieces when I go to London next month. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. :-)

        Anytime! I just can’t say enough good things about the fit and quality, even though I haven’t been able to afford to purchase anything myself. It looks so basic and classic but then when you try it on….the fit is a dream and the silk feels like nothing else I’ve ever tried on. It’s so soft and luxurious….Hope you are able to try on (and maybe buy) something from the collection when you’re in London!
