Gunfire, treason, plotting; all this general Bonfire talk has put us in the mood to channel our inner revolutionist. And, no, not in a hands dirty kind of way. We’re talking about a Vivienne Westwood punky twist, or bit of gender-swapping androgyny a la Jean Paul Gaultier. In other words: causing an absolute bang.
There’s nothing more fun (or sexy) than taking something ‘nice’ and toughening it up. Yet whilst the pirate/rebel look has always been popular in mainstream fashion, in the realm of lingerie this has often fallen into the bracket of trashy. Which is why, here at figleaves.com, we have fought your ground to find underwear that pushes conventional boundaries.
For example, one of our favourite new brands, Yes Master combines the luxury of pure silk with mischievous PVC embellishments. Meanwhile more and more designers are transforming traditional satin looks with a modern navy colour scheme, making it just all the more seductive. Check out these just-ins from 6ixty 8ight to see what we mean.
From an oversized ruffle trim to a cheeky keyhole detailing or an unexpected tassel; this is one lingerie look we’re totally loving. Mixing creative integrity with sexiness is indeed the new black. So be it Dita Von Teese's irresistibly provocative collection for Wonderbra, or haute pieces such as the Lecon De Seduction thong from Aubade, we hope you'll be inspired too.
Viva la revolution!
