Our Mimi Holliday has just been delivered and it’s always with a sense of anticipation that we at Fox & Rose open the boxes and see each glorious piece in the flesh. Mimi Holliday has that unique charm that is coquettish, fun and somewhat irreverent. It is the kind of bra and knicker set that you put on and feel instantly uplifted. It denotes fun times, girlish fancies and wanton frivolity and the beauty of lingerie is that it can be worn underneath the most somber of attire, a sensual secret just for yourself or your lucky other half.
Polka dots are so ‘Mimi’ and this seasons Joie De Vivre collection truly captures the spirit of this label. Working a 1950’s trend yet with a strong Bardot influence we personally adore the bold navy polka dot set against a backdrop of white silk chiffon. It just wouldn’t be Mimi without the addition of the joyfully twee navy grosgrain ribbons. An utter delight. Sigh!
For something with more of a strong fashion edge look no further than the Piece De Resistance Line. In a strong monochromatic color palette it has a nod to the elegance of Chanel yet with a distinctly naughty French maid feel. The comfort bra is a fabulous everyday bra that serves as the perfect underpinning for this seasons fashions.
Menage a Trois as it name denotes is decidedly saucy (pictured first image on the right). There is always something a little ‘out there’ about leopard print lingerie, it has the propensity to descend into the vulgar, yet with Mimi’s Holliday’s skilled touch this set denotes a young, playful vibe. The balcony style, padded bra gives a little oomph where needed and teamed with equally resplendent hipster knicker this set has instant cool girl appeal.
Lastly we offer something a little more restrained yet ethereal and decidedly ‘Rose’ like in mood. Drawing on the ballerina look immortalized in the fantastic ‘Black Swan’, movie the Rosetti line captures an elegant and ladylike spirit. The fully padded oyster silk cups sit underneath a delicate white floral lace and are offset by dainty oyster pink silk bows. A dreamy creation that works beautifully when teamed with the matching boy short.
So there you have it this seasons Mimi, Holliday we know it’s going to be a fabulous success amongst all you die hard Mimi fans.
