We’re always excited to introduce you to new designers who come on board at Fox and Rose and this time we’ve not just got one for you to enjoy, but two. We would like to welcome to Fox and Rose, Ayten Gasson and Les Jupons De Tess.
Independent lingerie brand, Ayten Gasson, are based in the UK and are renowned for their ethical sourcing of fabrics and trimmings, as well as their traditional manufacturing techniques. Designer Ayten Roberts, who comes from a long line of seamstresses, launched her label with the help of the Prince’s Trust and uses peace silk, recycled vintage fabrics and lace trims from the old lace mills in Nottingham. Her designs are truly luxurious, with a nod to times gone by, and each piece has a real handcrafted feel about it.
The Stephanie Silk Slip is a stunning piece of nightwear created with a circle skirt body section that drapes perfectly over your curves. Designed in the finest rose pink silk, and black English made lace for the triangle cups, it fastens loosely at the back with two black ribbon ties.
The matching Stephanie Silk Soft Bra is more supportive than it looks, even without any wiring. Designed in the same rose pink silk, it features soft cups of black English made lace which can stretch to accommodate a slightly larger bust. The Stephanie Silk Knickers are a classic style brief which feature an appliqué of black lace on the back and the same oversize ribbon which appear on all of the Stephanie pieces at the front.
For the ultimate indulgence in luxurious nightwear this beautiful Ann Long Silk Nighty makes the perfect gift for any age range. The fine navy silk is trimmed with hand dyed vintage Nottingham lace to create a unique and special garment. It is finished at the back with black ribbon ties and the adjustable straps have delicate gold detailing to them. This can be worn with the matching Ann Knickers to complete the look.
Based on the Stephanie Slip, the Julia Silk Babydoll features the same style circle skirt body section which then falls to the hip and is left open at the front. This creates a seductive front fastening that ties just underneath the bust with a single ribbon tie. Made from the finest black silk and English made lace, it is worn here with the Ayten Gasson classic Julia Silk Ruffle Knickers.
These sexy Julia Open Back Knicker are a more risqué version of the Ayten Gasson classic brief. Designed in opaque black silk at the front, the back reveals a little more with its matching black English lace panels and open section to tantalisingly reveal your ‘bum cleavage’! This can be matched with the Julia Silk Babydoll, as well as any of the Stephanie range pieces.
Les Jupons De Tess
Parisian based label Les Jupons de Tess has become a symbol of luxury lingerie in France. Combining inspiration from boudoirs of the 18th century to the cabarets of the 1920s, it is both seductive and romantic. Using materials such as Chantilly Leavers lace and draped silk tulle, each piece has a twist of modernity as well as sensual softness that creates something truly unique. Designer Caroline Tannous, the granddaughter of Lebanese painter Georges Guv, is very much influenced by her artisan upbringing and invokes the feeling of bohemian frivolity into all her designs.
Made entirely from fine mesh, the Privee Chemise is both sexy and feminine. It features wide panels of black down both the centre front and back and is complimented with dusky pink rouching on either side. The pink cups feature a black Chantilly lace trim which follows the contours of their triangular shape and the same trim also finishes the seams between the body panels.
The sheer Privee Underwired Bra features cups of black and pink panelled mesh and are trimmed across the bust with a delicate matching ruffle. The underband is made from two layers of pink on top of black, created for extra support as well an unusual colour feature at the front. The matching Privee High Waisted Brief is styled exactly the same as the Privee Chemise with panels of black mesh at the front and back and ruched pink mesh to the sides. The joining seams are trimmed with black Chantilly lace and feature plastic boning to help mould the garment to your figure.
The Privee Thong can be matched with both the Privee Underwired Bra and Privee Chemise. It features small triangles of pink mesh overlaid with a layer of black at the front and back which are held in place with a band of dusky pink ruffles that sit around the hips.
Looking like it has survived from the Parisian nightclubs of the 1920s, the Les Extravagantes Chemise is an exquisite example of fine French lingerie at its best. Styled in horizontal panels of luxurious fine pink chiffon, wide French pink lace and black silk, it creates an effortless shape that can be worn full length or pulled up onto the hips to create a blouson style top section. It is finished with fine black velvet adjustable shoulder straps.
Cut similarly to the Ayten Gasson open back knicker, the Pink and Black Les Extravagantes Open Back Briefs add a little bit of risqué to the collection. Featuring an opaque black silk front, the back is made in wide panels of French pink lace that create a triangular opening across the top of the derriere which is held together with a wide black elastic waistband. They’re styled with a string of diamanté and pearl decoration to the centre front to give a truly luxurious finish and are also available completely in black.
So, what do think of our new designers? Which is your favourite piece?
