I love love LOVE Dita’s new “Von Follies” lingerie line!
These beautiful 50s-inspired underthings will debut at Target Australia in February of 2012 and then in other countries later next year.
I love that the collection will also feature overwire bras (a quirky and very authentic vintage touch) as well as corselettes, garter belts, and high-waisted panties, all with gorgeous ribbon and lace detailing. As Dita puts it, this is underwear that is “meant to be seen”.
I couldn’t agree more.

If you want a vintage 1950s silhouette, a bullet bra is a must.
This was a classic look during the era of the 1940s and 50s. In fact, many legendary movie stars like Lana Turner and Jayne Mansfield sported them often. These bras are perfect for chests large and small, managing to provide maximum lift and extreme shaping without the need for an underwire. You can’t pull off a classic “sweater girl” look without one!

All that was old is new again, as the saying goes. And that certainly rings true in today’s world of high-fashion lingerie.
Throughout the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, peach was the color of choice for the boudoir. Closer to flesh tones than white, but not at all drab (as “nude” fabrics always tend to be) peach silks and laces were elegant yet subtle…And thankfully, after disappearing for several decades, they’re now experiencing a comeback in a big way.
Whites and ivories are much lighter than any skin tone, leaving telltale outlines that can be seen through thin tops or dresses; yet peach is picture-perfect under clothes. Peach colored satin also lends a bit of a romantic vintage flair to otherwise tame underthings.
So what do you think? Is this a trend you can get behind? Or is it too subtle to really sex up a wardrobe?
