As always, we have some lovely new darker floral styles in the Breeze and Della for this season. I loved the SS16 colourway of the Della, and this season’s colourway is a definite winner for me! I adore sets that have matching suspenders, and I think the combination of the bold black detailing over the soft floral is simply gorgeous.

SIL Preview: Panache AW16 (Including Panache Swim & Sport)

If you follow me on social media, you might already know that a few weeks ago, I took a short trip over to Paris! While I did plenty of fun things (like visiting Disneyland and drinking copious amounts of wine), the main reason I visited was to attend Salon de la Lingerie International. The SIL is a lingerie tradeshow, where industry professionals from all over the world come to see and showcase the latest collections – essentially, it’s the same thing as Moda, but way bigger.

So, that means that I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at lots of the new styles coming out in Autumn/Winter! I’ll be sharing previews on here every day for the next few days, starting with one of the biggest of the lot, Panache! The Panache AW16 collection primarily features shades of blue, teal, berry and gold.

One trend we saw heavily this season was gold embroidery over deep blues and blacks, as shown in this new colourway of the Tango, along with the new Oriane style. Oriane is a full-cup style, similar in construction to the older Clara and Andorra styles. Continue reading
