Collection Redirection: Mixing & Matching collections, with the Nina Balcony Bra
Choosing just one collection to add to your ever growing lingerie wardrobe can be hard, we know. We love every single piece we’ve created; we could never choose just one collection. But who says you have to?
Have you ever thought about mixing and matching collections? While each collection has a nuanced theme – the Lexi collection inspired by shibari rope bondage, the Nina full of equestrian influences – by designing consistently with our signature fabrics (our hero fabric being our luxury Japanese plonge leather) pulling your favourite pieces from a variety of collections will still curate a wonderfully wicked aesthetic.
Perhaps you love the simple decadence of the Lexi High Waist Brief combines luxurious leather and alluring mesh to create an equally fascinating-yet-flattering design; still featuring an irresistible peep-hole bum while the leather panelling hugs your curves in all the right places. Or maybe, just like Alexa Von Uber, you want to push the boundaries of underwear as outerwear, and create a lingerie-exposing look, worn to be seen by the masses. Combining the longline, bralette design of the Mia Balcony Bra with the mini-skirt aesthetic that comes in the form of the Montana girdle, this curated look flaunts luxury leather lingerie, but would not be out of place if you’re feeling daring to bare on a night on the town, or the perfect look to make an entrance at a play party, before you strip down.
To show how versatile our pieces really are, we’ve styled together a selection of ensembles pulled from a variety of collections, with one integral piece as the base. As the first post of its kind, we selected the base piece to be one that looks perfect on everyone. The Nina Balcony Bra is a staple silhouette that flatters every frame; understated in design, but not underwhelming in aesthetics. As we’ve highlighted in our linked blog post, giving advice to which bra fits your bust, the Nina Leather Balcony Bra is a style to suit all. For wearers with a larger bust, the wired structure, full cups and sturdy straps provide a great amount of support to ensure you feel secure as well as undeniably sexy. If your chest is on the smaller side, the silhouette will help create the illusion of a larger, fuller bust.
Always classic but eternally kinky, the design made in our signature Japanese plonge leather makes it a truly transferable piece to partner with almost all collections. Wear it through the translucent allure of the Jade Mesh Dress, paired with a perfect high-waisted panty and the Obi belt as a final finishing touch. Alternatively, if you’re after a stripped-nowhere-to-hide look, the Nina Balcony Bra looks equally undeniable with the Montana thong; minimal in coverage but maximum in impact.
If you’re looking for striking and strappy, the Nina Balcony Leather Bra is perfectly paired with the Mia Ouvert Briefs; featuring an irresistible open bum detail and adjustable straps that can sit high or low on the waist. If your waist is looking for a little more loving, it can get hugged by swathes of luxurious leather in the Lexi High Waist Brief. Still boasting a peek-a-boo bum detail, the Lexi High Waisted Briefs hugs your hips and dips in all the right places, providing ample stomach coverage, with the illusion of a high cut silhouette created with panels of mesh and leather.
Another flawlessly flattering high-waisted design, the Ava Leather and Suede high waisted briefs pull you in perfectly, with shaping power-mesh to carve your silhouette. Art Deco inspired geometric shapes in soft suede add a striking design detail, which is emphasised when partnered with the subtle Nina Balcony bra.
If leather is your ultimate lover, partner the Nina Balcony Bra with the Lexi Mini Briefs for the epitome of leather luxury with a hint of curious kink. Triangular swathes of leather shape the front of the brief, and wrap around and reveal a totally open-bum design to display your delicious curves; a true embodiment of business in the front, a party in the back….
Looking for more wearable coverage, the Montana Girdle gives the illusion of a leather mini skirt, with panels of power mesh framing the central section of seductive luxury leather. Perfect for making a head-turning entrance at a play party, it reinvents a classic lingerie piece with a wearable, wonderfully wicked twist.
