You might have seen this lovely blue set (above, right) gracing our UK home page last week. It's by Cacharel, the breezy French fashion brand established in the Sixties and enjoying a new lease of life thanks to the efforts of Brit design duo Clements Ribeiro. And the name? A cacharel is a bird from the Camargue region of France, fact fans.
But back to the lingerie, which has just made its debut on figleaves.com. As fresh and modern as the brand's ready-to-wear, Cacharel's pretty, printed bras and briefs are also surprisingly affordable - prices for a bra start at £25.
