Gilda & Pearl SS13 and Classic Collections
We here at The Lingerie Journal are always impressed by the impeccable design that comes from the UK; so when we received images from Gilda & Pearl’s SS13 and Classic Collections, it wasn’t too much of a shock to see that the pieces incited envy and had our eyes sparkling green.
Gilda & Pearl is a lingerie brand designed by Diane Houston. All the pieces are made and hand finished in the UK. The name ‘Gilda & Pearl’ represents the designer’s truest inspirations: the bold femme fetale film character played by Rita Hayworth in the 1946 film Gilda and Pearl, an encapsulation of the meaning of unique luxury.
Made to empower and embolden, Gilda & Pearl is the perfect brand for the woman who wants to feel like a Greek goddess, burlesque beauty, or sassy siren.
The collections featured below are born from a desire to play dress up, inspired from the innate glamour of classic film, and motivated from a passion for close attention to detail.
The Classic Collection
The Harlow line within the Classic Collection is a true embodiment of luxury. Fine details and extravagant fabrics are meshed together to create pieces that make the wearer feel opulent. The Harlow Bra and Classic Knicker are made with 100% silk satin and antique-gold French leavers lace. By combining gold, champagne, and green stitching, the pieces look fit for a forest sprite. The sheer bralet and silky knicker project a feeling of airy lavishness.
The Harlow Babydoll uses the same gold and champagne pure silk satin and French leavers lace to produce a piece that is quite simply otherworldly. The eyelash lace edging coupled with the exquisite fit of the garment makes it one surely to be desired. We also can’t help but think of fair folk of The Lord of Rings when we look at the model wearing this piece.
The Bardot Ruffle Babydoll and Ruffle Skirted Knicer combine 100% silk georgette and satin to create a light, feminine set perfect for a honeymoon getaway or romantic summer evening. The translucent ivory fabric sheaths the body in a graceful fashion while the scooped ruffle neckline is just dainty enough that it makes us think of prancing about a sunwashed room on a Sunday morning, coffee brewing and music wafting from the stereo.
The Marylin Dreaming Front Pleated Babydoll with Pleated Hem and Silk Covered Buttons and Silk and Lace Short French Knicker set blends elements of traditional pj’s with hints of French maid style. The blush and black color combination makes the pieces feel classic and timeless. Ruffle detailing along the edge of the knickers creates a beautiful accentuating effect on the body.
The Bonbon Silk Chiffon and French Levers Lace Babydoll mixes ivory lace with sky chiffon to producing a piece that pops vividly. The color combination along with the materials used have us thinking about Marie Antoinette and French decadence.
The Bonbon Chiffon and Satin Coral Kimono is a breath of fresh air. The color of the piece compliments all skin tones, bringing forth rosy undertones making the wearer glow radiantly. We can’t help but be obsessed with how classically beautiful this piece is, even just the way it hangs from the body so lightly but femininely.
