Sale Lingerie of the Week: Made by Niki String Fringe Bra
When Made by Niki released their very first string collection in 2011, it caused a sensation. Like Fleur of England's lace appliqué Boudoir Bra, I consider Made by Niki's string bra and skirt to be one of today's great modern lingerie stories. When I'm thinking of pieces that may eventually be part of a 21st century lingerie exhibition, this is one undoubtedly one.
For reasons unknown, everything on Made by Niki's website - including this season's current collection - is on sale for 50% off or more. While I hope this massive clearance simply means the brand is going in a different direction (and thus wants to get rid of old stock), I can't help but wonder if it's a bad sign of things to come. Sometimes a sale can mean something more.
Regardless of the future, this is a great opportunity to pick up one of the most innovative collections in recent memory for an almost obscene price. While I recommend the original string bra and skirt pictured above and below (what can I say? I'm a little nostalgic.), every iteration of the string collection (including a brilliant black & grey version at the bottom of this post) is included in the sale.
What do you think of Made by Niki's String Collection? Do you believe it's innovative or interesting? And if you've been able to try it in person, how did it fit?
