Panache’s Masquerade collection never fails to turn up the glamour, but after a sneaky peek at their AW11 collection I think this season might just be their hottest yet.
Notably this season promises more vintage Hollywood glamour then ever before, and the sort of vintage styles that a: I’m a complete sucker for anyway, and b: convince me that by wearing them I too could be the sort of effortlessly stylish and capable woman I’ve always dreamed of becoming, possibly with a satin housecoat.
Immediately, I fell in love with this 50′s inspired Capella (D-G, above). It’s a beautifully classic set, and I love how understated it is: it’s a sophisticated and subtle slice of boudoir sexiness, perfect for warming up those long winter nights. And for those who want to turn the temperature up from warm to scorching, this Delphi basque (D-H, below) reveals a tantalising trail of stomach behind gorgeous lace detailing.
The unstoppably popular Lula-Mae (D-H, below) will return mid-August with a flourish, reworked in to this beautiful olive colour for the autumn. Favourite Rhea is also due to make a comeback too, in a luscious mulberry colour with slate detailing.
It would be nice to see Masquerade expand in to J cups, (perhaps next season…) but it’s a cracking collection to warm us through the cold nights. I’m already looking forward to celebrating their release with an indulgent lingerie spree. And a satin housecoat. And possibly some kind of beehive…
