Holiday Lingerie Gift Guide Inspired by Persephone

The juxtaposition of light and darkness in the Persephone myth opens up some great opportunities for interpretation via your lingerie drawer. In compiling this gift guide I pulled designs in keeping with a few different themes: light surrounded by darkness (or darkness interrupted by light), traditionally sweet styles with unexpectedly more hardcore elements, and of course, nature-inspired prints like florals. You might see lace or embroidery used in unexpected ways, bondage or strappy elements on otherwise traditional styles, unusual mixes of soft and hard textures and fibers, or flowers rendered in dark or vaguely menacing colors.
