These designer lingerie pieces provide the ultimate foundations of any capsule collection.
When creating a capsule wardrobe, it is important to start at the very foundations, the underpinnings of the whole look. Luxury lingerie can really make a difference to not only the outfit itself but to your confidence, which arguably is the most important part of any look.
Lingerie is often the forgotten part of any capsule wardrobe, we at Fleur of England are here to guide you in the investment pieces you need to build that perfect closet.
The balcony bra:
The most dependable of lingerie essentials, the balcony bra is designed for support and uplift. It flatters all cup sizes and makes the perfect base for most fashion looks. This season finds this classic silhouette reimagined in shades of cool blue, ranging from ice tones to navy. Or opt for timeless essentials with the signature range designed in blush, white and black.
In 2 different classic styles, the thong is a non-negotiable for every lingerie collection. A styling essential, the thong is discreet under most fashion looks.
Whether you opt for the sexier silk side strap style or the romantic lace style, it is inevitable that a thong plays a key part in a lingerie capsule wardrobe.
We are firm believers that lingerie shouldn’t be boring. Ouvert briefs are a playful addition to a capsule wardrobe, much like a standard brief they are designed in a hipster fit crafted in lace or tulle, however, the party is in the back with a cheeky peephole detail exposing the perfect amount of derrière.
From summer day dresses to evening gowns, a strapless bra is a regular go-to in most women’s wardrobes but gone are the days where this just means an uncomfortable nude wired option. Fleur of England has introduced beautiful strapless options adorned in intricate embroidery or lace, designed with silk under band and light boning, this bra is where beauty and practicality meet.
The style that Bridget Jones made oh so famous, and every woman loves. Fleur of England’s answer to the brief is designed with total luxury in mind. Crafted in French lace or sheer Italian tulle and adorned in exquisite embroidery, they are the ultimate choice if you prefer a fuller brief style and ones, we think Bridget would be proud to wear!
How to ensure your lingerie collection lasts:
Taking care of your lingerie is not only great news for you, because they last longer, but is thought to significantly reduce the carbon and water footprint of each piece. Here are our tips to make your lingerie take you the extra mile.
- Wash correctly:
All of our lingerie pieces are intricately crafted and for that reason, we always recommend hand washing when it comes to delicates and silks. Not only does your lingerie love it, but it is also much better for the environment and more cost-effective!
Washing machines and especially tumble dryers can be extremely damaging, from the excessive movement being abrasive and causing tears or stretching, to the heat breaking down elastic and dulling the surface of the fabrics.
- Store correctly:
We always recommend drying and keeping your underwired and padded bras flat so that they retain their shape. Keep away from any harsh lighting sources so that there is no fading to the silk, and our lingerie should be guaranteed to stand the test of time.
