Next up in my Moda previews, Parfait! Parfait generally cover 30-40 D-G, but there are a few styles going up to a K cup, which is always good news for me. Note that the below doesn’t include any continuity pieces, of which there are quite a few! This season from Parfait features lots of blues, bright pinks, and bridal whites.
The Charlotte Padded Bra is one of Parfait’s bras going to a K cup, and will be released for SS15 in this striking Ice Blue/Black colourway. I personally love this colourway! It’s probably one of my favourite Charlottes so far, and I will be very tempted to get it myself. This is the only K cup fashion piece – the other K cup pieces are the continuity Alexis babydoll and Sophia unpadded bra. Unfortunately, while this used to be available in 28-40 D-K, Parfait seem to have excluded 28 bands this season. I am very disappointed about this, and I’m sure I won’t be the only one. Padded bra available in 30-40 D-K, balconet bra available in 30-40 D-G.
The Casey unlined wired bra, a new cut to join the Casey collection (which currently comprises a moulded bra and matching separates). Both the moulded and unpadded styles will be released in this Blue colourway, a muted cornflower blue similar to the new Charlotte. Available in 30-40 D-G.
This is a new style, the Elena. This will be released as a moulded contour bra and an unpadded bra, both available in a French Blue and a Raspberry colourway. This style features brightly coloured lace overlaying a pale base, which is very eyecatching – the French Blue is definitely one of my favourites. This style in Raspberry actually reminded me a lot of the Elomi Bijou Soiree, and a bit of the Curvy Kate Temptress, so it seems to me that this sort of look is quite popular for SS15. Both styles available in 30-40 D-G.
The Jeanie moulded plunge in Ibis Rose. The colour came out slightly oddly on my camera, but in person this is a vibrant deep pink. Available in 30-40 D-G.
The Delphine in Spring Print. This is available in two cuts – a half-padded balconette (first picture), and an unpadded side support bra (second picture). The bright pink lace isn’t my favourite, but I like the contrast with the softer floral base, and I’m sure it will have its fans. Both styles available in 30-40 D-G.
Another new style for SS15, this is the Tess in Ivory, an unpadded wire bra. This bra definitely intrigues me – the wavy horizontal seam across the apex is both attractive and unusual, and I’d be interested in seeing whether this affects the fit. This is also available in a moulded contour bra, which I (unfortunately) didn’t get a picture of, though I will say it is essentially a moulded white bra with lace overlay on the upper cup. Both styles available in 30-40 D-G.
Parfait also seems to be launching something of a bridal collection for SS15, the Elissa in Pearl White. This collection comprises an unpadded babydoll, an unpadded longline, and multi-way/strapless moulded contour bra, which I think gives a nice range of options. All styles available in 30-40 D-G.
Finally, the last new style of the season is the Leigh in Cream Pink. This appears to be an unpadded full-cup style, featuring a pale pink lace for the base, with contrasting black detailing. This is quite possibly my favourite piece of the collection! I adore blush and black lingerie, and I adore piping, so this is so very me. This is one piece I am definitely hoping Parfait consider expanding to a K cup! Available in 30-40 D-G.
Overall I think this is a great season from Parfait. The colours are cohesive, and they are introducing quite a few new cuts and styles this season, which I am very pleased to see. I am sure their bridal Elissa collection will be very popular (particularly the longline), and I adore the Charlotte and Leigh.
What do you think of the collection? Do you have any favourite pieces? Any not-so-favourite pieces? Let me know any thoughts in the comments below!
