Happy New Year, everyone! Please join me in welcoming a new year and a new lingerie season, and also join me in salivating over this complete thing of beauty:
This is the Attrape-Coeur (“heart-catcher” in English) collection from Elixir by Maison Lejaby, and the more I look at it the more I love it. It’s been offered in beige and red before, and as cute/kitschy as the red was, I think it looks unbelievably wonderful in black.
Oh my gosh, it’s just gorgeous. I’m a new Maison Lejaby convert, and while this lovely set doesn’t come in my size (it runs up to an F cup in European sizes, and based on my experience I’d compare it to UK cup sizes F, FF, or G, depending on band size), it’s already one of my favorite sets I’ve seen this year. I love the almost baroque swags and opulent heart embroidery, and how rendering them in delicate sheer mesh makes the whole set feel light and decadent at the same time.
Lejaby bras are on the expensive side (the bra alone retails for $114 at Figleaves), but having tried both the Idole and Theodora styles, I can confirm that the quality is outstanding. Also there’s that holiday coming up in February that people associate with lingerie, so if you have a partner who is looking for a gift idea, maybe point them this way?
Oh and also there’s a babydoll.
That felt important to share.
