Back in November, Mandolina welcomed you to the world of Kiki De Montparnasse with exquisite photos of their Satin Corselet. This week, I was able to view this, among other extraordinary pieces, in the flesh at the Rites of Spring Salon.
Kiki De Monparnasse transcends being just a lingerie brand in just a lingerie shop. It is an all encompassing intimacy experience whose flagship store, in the Soho area of New York City, feels like it could be your own bedroom â€“ except with a few juicy extras!
When you enter the space, you are immediately swept away into an oasis of seduction. With its high ceilings, sophisticated color palette, and extensive collection of intriguing art, Kiki De Montparnasse is a comfortable place to explore your sensuality. I was impressed by the great attention to attend to every detail of creating a unique and indulgent boudoir experience from the ample selection of music to â€œmake love toâ€ to the eclectic library of books to help you â€œkeep it interesting.â€
For as daring as you are or as daring as you want to be, there is a little something for everyone. For the more tame, perhaps start with the â€œFrench Lesson Pantyâ€ in â€œLove Me.â€ For the more risquÃ©, perhaps the “Tie Me Up.”
One feature I liked about a number of the pieces were that they could not only be worn in the bedroom, but also thrown over tights or jeans and worn out of the bedroom as well. Featured below is the Cashmere Crochet Tunic.
If you are in the New York area and looking to spice things up, I recommend stopping by to experience the high end luxury for yourself. See the website for hours. In the meantime, sign up for the mailing list and stay posted on upcoming salon events.
Canâ€™t make it New York? Lucky for you the website does an excellent job of recreating the sensuous feel of the store, so you can peruse the provocative pieces and decadent accessories 24/7.
