As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I believe the current Dita von Teese Lingerie Collection (I dont think theyre calling it Von Follies anymore) is her best yet. Theres a great balance of risque and retro inspired (the Madame X and Her Sexcellency sets specifically) with modern and wearable (think Mancatcher, Savoir Faire, and Marlene). Its notoriously difficult for new lingerie brands, even those with celebrity backing, to take off now so Im very happy Dita von Teese was able to stick around for enough seasons to really show what her line could become.
If youve avoided anything from Dita von Teeses collection due to price, I highly recommend checking ASOS right now. Theyve got several pieces from her latest collection on sale, and while theyre all beautiful, the definite standout to me is the Parisienne set. The pale blush color and the lace accents are wonderful, but what really makes this set special is the quilted details. Thats very much the sort of thing youll only see on vintage (and vintage-inspired) lingerie, the overwhelming popularity of foam domed t-shirt bras makes this kind of texture a no-go for most brands.
While youre there, also check out the Marlene and the Tulip sets (shown below), which are on sale too. Theyre not quite as glamorous and intricate as the Parisienne, but theyre still very nice in their own right.
What are your thoughts on these DvT sets? Would you be willing to try one on sale?
