SLOANE & TATE
Jonesing for Marky Mark and Kate Moss (or perhaps Justin Bieber) in their Calvins? You are not alone. This LA based, and produced, brand looks to mens underwear for inspiration (and comfort).
Sofia Coppola and Michelle Williams are fans of the New York based label, which features soft constructions, Italian fabrics, and designs which are more demure than risqué.
The ulta feminine line shares the over the top vava-voom aesthetic of big sister brand, Agent Provocateur.
FLEUR DU MAL
Fleur du Mal (the flowers of evil) takes its name from the work of French poet Charles Baudelaire. The name largely sums up the dark pretty aesthetic of this New York based brand.
