Another big trend from the Spring/Summer 2015 catwalk which always seems to be very popular around this time year, mainly due to summer balls and events like Ascot, is black & white. Monochrome is such an easy and very chic style to wear and it’s not surprising it creeps into lingerie trends year after year. Here at Fox and Rose we have a great choice of monochrome intimate pieces, including the newly added Maison Close Cabaret range.
Dentelle Etc’s Opal Plunge Bra and High Waisted Short Briefs are made in the softest ivory stretch fabric which feels amazing next to your skin. Trimmed with black stitching, semi sheer edging trim and cute little buttons, they’re both versatile and comfortable enough to become a favourite everyday set.
The Black and Cream Lace La Vintage Plunge Bra and Brief by Rosy will add a touch of vintage glamour to your lingerie collection with their jet black silk satin fabric and ivory eyelash trim detailing. However, they offer all the benefits of modern day undies with fully padded cups, and a little extra for added uplift, adjustable straps and low, slim centre front for wearing with low cut necklines.
The Cookies and Cream Plunge Bra and Boy Short by Mimi Holliday feature a white silk satin base which is entirely overlaid with a beautiful black eyelash lace. The only section left just as white silk are the shoulder straps. The boy shorts are styled with a thong back, a cheeky peep hole at the rear and semi sheer areas for a truly seductive look.
Talking of seductive, the Cabaret Smoking Thong Body from our latest Maison Close collection is just about as alluring as you can get. Styled with a pleated black tulle halter neck front and white crepe thong brief section, it also features a black satin underbust band that teasingly ties around the back. Removable wide black and white suspender clips finish this elegant piece off beautifully.
The Blossom Noir Padded Shoulder Bra and Hipster Knicker by Mimi Holliday feature ice pink and black eyelash lace in overlaid section across the front of both pieces. The low V shape created by the wide shoulder straps of the bra is perfect for wearing under a variety of necklines, making it very versatile. The knickers are finished at the back with black silk chiffon and stretch silk satin bands at the side.
The retro look of Playful Promises’ Brigitte Fan Lace Push-Up Bra and Brief is very popular right now and the combination of a soft nude cotton and black fan shaped lace overlaid on top create a truly nostalgic design. The curved padded cups help to create a fabulous cleavage and the sheer back section to the knickers help to keep the 60s free love spirit alive.
And, of course the black and white trend isn’t just limited to the lingerie pieces, there are plenty of accessories available too like the “Good Night My Sweetheart” Ivory and Black Eye Mask also by Playful Promises. Styled in a silky ivory satin it features a delicate black lace trim, a black embroidered slogan, black elastic to keep it secure and oversize black satin bows.
Maison Close have also produced these stunning Opaque Back Seamed & Curled Stockings to compliment the rest of their Cabaret collection pieces. Designed in a 70 denier opaque black and contrasting white seam, they feature Maison Close’s signature cut and curled tops which don’t have the usual modern-day welt.
