La Perla - Lingerie & Desire

La-Perla-Lingerie-And-Desire-lingerie-la-femme-books-for-lingerie-lovers-christmas-gift-guide-01

A gorgeously illustrated book showcasing the exquisite high-end lingerie from the world-renowned Italian brand La Perla. La Perla is celebrated for its sophisticated, sexy, and beautifully designed and crafted lingerie. The company was founded by Ada Masotti, an artisan skilled in the tradition of handcrafted Italian corsetry, in 1954 when she opened a small lingerie boutique in Bologna. She combined her impeccable craftsmanship and understanding of women’s bodies to fulfil their growing desire to possess undergarments that were not only functional but also beautiful and alluring. This is the only book ever published on the glamorous and delicate lingerie produced by La Perla throughout its history. The book first pays homage to the Italian craftsmanship, including the use of fine Italian fabrics, that helped to establish La Perla as the maker of sophisticated couture lingerie, and that continues with today’s collections to set the company apart from other brands. Then it showcases the exceptional intimate garments the company has created throughout the years with gorgeous archival images as well as sexy, sumptuous photographs of the latest collections.

Lillian Bassman - Lingerie

Lillian-Bassman-lingerie-la-femme-books-for-lingerie-lovers-christmas-gift-guide-03(2)

Through the 1950s and the early 1960s, working with that era’s supermodels, fashion photographer Lillian Bassman created the quintessential modern feminine image of women in their lingerie. As Ginia Bellafante put it in the New York Times recently, “In place of heavyset women constraining themselves in what was essentially equipment, Ms. Bassman deployed immeasurably lithe models, conveying a world in which women seemed to linger in the pleasures of their own sensuality.” Fifty years later, these images have lost none of their allure, and the enormous cultural impact of the TV show Mad Men has given them new currency. This book provides a collection of sensual images from Lillian Bassman.Lillian-Bassman-lingerie-la-femme-books-for-lingerie-lovers-christmas-gift-guide-01 Lillian-Bassman-lingerie-la-femme-books-for-lingerie-lovers-christmas-gift-guide-02

LA VIE EN LINGERIE: ANNA CLOUGH

Life-in-lingerie-real-beauty-model-anna-clough-first-model-management.jpg

Anna is a lingerie and fitness model who has worked with a variety of brands from the much coveted Gilda & Pearl to the world renowned Rigby & Peller. An ex-swimmer turned lingerie model, Anna has also launched her own swimwear label Beach Heart.

 

Here Anna discusses her life, her style and her swimwear obsession...

 

Hi Anna, tell me about yourself:

Hi, I'm a full time model signed to First Model Management. Over the past two years I've worked with a number of lingerie brands from Gilda & Pearl to Rigby & Peller. I'm originally from the Lake District and I didn't always plan to get into modelling. I have a degree in english so I went into marketing for a couple of years before I got scouted. Now I love my job, everyday is different! and one day I'd like to progress into presenting and acting too.

1103webHow would you describe your style?

My style is basic, uncomplicated. I wear a lot of denim and black, a pair of jeans and a shirt - that kind of thing. In the summer I love wearing playsuits as you can just throw them on and go.  My favourite high street shops are Zara, Reiss and Whistles and Calvin Klein is my favourite designer, he epitomizes my aesthetic.

 

Would you say your lingerie fits into that style or do you like to express yourself differently underneath?

Its a little sexier but not too much. I don't anything with a lot of padding but I do like silk and lace lingerie. A lacy triangle bra or comfortable silk balconette bra are the sorts of underwear I go for.

174webAnd how about your swimwear?

My swimwear is a lot more playful! I love prints and colourful bikinis, I'm pretty obsessed with swimwear. My favourite piece is a red plunging halter neck swimsuit that I designed myself, along with my sister Heather, for our own swimwear label Beach Heart. It's simple, not padded and really flattering. We design our own prints and incorporate all out favourite elements into our swimwear such as tie side knickers, cut outs and halter necks etc... I love going to Ibiza and also hope to go back to the Maldives, where I spent my honeymoon. Me and Heather both love travelling and holidays so it seemed natural for us to go into launching our own swimwear label.

 

Do you have a favourite set of lingerie?

It really depends on my mood. I change my mind a lot! I guess if I had to pick one I would choose my Victoria's Secret nude strapless bra, its comfortable and I seem to be wearing it a lot at the moment.

175web

How do you feel about your body image?

I'm happy with my figure. As a model you really have to be comfortable with yourself. You'll go to one job and they'll say you're too small and then you'll go to another and they'll say your too big. You can't please everybody! It's better to just be happy, look after yourself and don't give in to the pressure of people wanting you to look a certain way. I have sweet tooth and don't deny myself treats when I want them. I do a lot of fitness modelling which involves exercising for a long time under bright lights, and I run mosts days, so my lifestyle it keeps me fit.

1721web

What do you think makes a woman sexy? 

A sense of humour is sexy on anybody, man or woman. It's great when somebody doesn't take themselves too seriously.
