Disclosure: this set was purchased by The Lingerie Addict for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own. Department Of Curiosities is a lingerie and loungewear brand founded by two fashion industry veterans: corsetiere Gerry Quinton of Morúa, and Jamie Hayes of Production Mode. The label specialises in luscious, vintage inspired loungewear, glamorous without sacrificing comfort. Many of the silhouettes directly reference the decadence of the 1920s and 30s. […]
I first met one of the founders of Department of Curiosities at the Oxford Conference of Corsetry. Gerry Quinton, under the label Morua Corsetry & Couture, actually designed one of my favorite pieces – a cream overbust corset with golden stars made of fragmented glass. I was honestly delighted when I first heard the news of her new lingerie label. Corsetry is a bit of niche area, inaccessible and intimidating to many. Loungewear on the other hand…well, who doesn’t want some of that?
