Velvet is popping up everywhere this season. Every designer seems to be obsessed with using this luxurious fabric as the cornerstone of their fall collections. A few of the more fashion forward lingerie brands have picked up on the trend and are executing it to absolute perfection. It’s truly amazing to see how each designer takes a different approach to the use of this material. Being such a versatile fabric, velvet can range from timeless and sophisticated to boho and carefree.
Never one to be behind the fashion curve, Only Hearts has produced two collections this fall that feature velvet. The Velvet Rib Collection and the Crane Velvet Devore Collection. Strictly lounge, the Crane Velvet Devore Collection has a timeless art deco 20’s appeal to it. The detail of the print is stunning and has all of the Lille gals drooling! The Velvet Rib Collection is a bit more subtle with it’s striped black on black velvet. The pieces are comfortable, soft, and timeless in their appeal.
Else has produced a Velvet Collection that is truly modern art. With subtle beige fabric lining the bust, these pieces can be used as under or outer wear. Layer these pieces with a pair of high waisted jeans and an amazing jacket for a bold take on this trend.
The Sidney Set by Thistle & Spire beautifully pairs lace with velvet for the ultimate in luxurious undergarments. This open cage bra is certainly sexy but with a mature and sophisticated air about it.
Personally, I can’t wait to incorporate velvet of all forms into my fall wardrobe – head to toe in velvet. It’ll be the most comfortable and extravagant season to date!
