I’ve recently been watching a lot of Steven Universe, and a dear friend and I got to discussing the Crystal Gems’ individual styles. I thought it could be fun to put together some sets of lingerie inspired by the Crystal Gems, and as my friend (Lorna) is an illustrator, she thought it would be fun to do her own lingerie designs and illustrate the Crystal Gems in them. So, we decided to collaborate!
Let’s start with Pearl! Pearl’s style is elegant, floaty and ballerina-esque, using shades of duck egg blue, peachy pink, apple green and sunny yellow.
Clockwise from top left: Pearl; Fortnight Luna Soft-Cup (Blue, 2013); Lilipiache Happy Blue Underwire Bra; Myla Isabella in Menthol; ASOS Fuller Bust Natalie Lace Underwire Bra; Veil of Visions Star Nipple Pasties; Gossard Phoebe; Claudette Paloma High Waist Brief in Cayenne Red. Centre: What Katie Did Clarice Bra & 1940s Tap Pants in Blue (discontinued).
Next up, Rose Quartz! As the original leader of the Crystal gems, Rose Quartz’s style is grandiose, classic, and unabashedly feminine, featuring voluminous hair and ruffles, little adornments, and an abundance of pink.
Clockwise from top left: Rose Quartz; Fifi Chachnil Babylove Set; Dottie’s Delights Short Sheer Frou Frou Robe; White Wedding Angels Bridal Garter (via Etsy); Vintage Opulence Pink Ruffled Girdle (via Etsy); Madame Sher Corsets ‘Beautiful Darlings’ Collection (Louise Brooks and Ingrid Bergman designs); Curvy Kate Soda Pop Set; Lalilouche Barbara Tie Belt Garter. Centre: Torrid Rumba Briefs in Pink/Fuschia.
Garnet’s style is bold, minimal and sporty, with her original outfit featuring shades of navy blue, bright pink, and berry purple.
Clockwise from top left: Garnet; Wonderbra Glamour Make Up Gel Bra; American Apparel Bikini & High-Waist Brief in Cobalt; Bi-colour tights in Blue/Pink; Nike Pro Bra Printed in Atomic Purple/Grand Purple/Electric Yellow; VPL Neo Insertion Bra in Plum; Panache Sport in Purple.
Amethyst’s style is rebellious, bold and carefree, layering contrasting pieces in shades of black, grey and purple.
Clockwise from top left: Amethyst; H&M Shaping Seamless Body in Dark Grey; Parfait Charlotte Padded Bra in Purple in Wine; House of Holland Superstar Tights; Hopeless Charlotte Top in Grey; Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette and Brief in Wild Iris; Lavish Alice Star Mesh Crossover Bralet and Brief; Freya Deco Honey in Purple; BlondeBlonde Garter Leggings (via Etsy). Centre: ASOS Star Chiffon High Waisted Pant.
Not all of these items will be available anymore, so my apologies if you spotted something you loved that’s been discontinued or already sold! That aside, I’m so pleased with these sets, and I love Lorna’s designs/illustrations! If you’d like to see more of Lorna’s work, you can find her over on her illustration website, her tumblr and facebook, and she’s also selling these illustrations as prints in her store (which I might have to get a few of myself)!
What do you think? Are there any other pieces you would have picked? Which set would you be most likely to wear? Let me know any thoughts in the comments!
