The 2008/09 lingerie collection from luxury label Ellipse is destined to appeal to a far wider audience than its Bridal marque implies. Think stunning silk satins, velvets, brocades and luxurious laces combined with high tech microtactel for perfect fit, figure flattering and enhancing cuts plus South American sensuousness and you start to get the picture.
Introduced in August 2008 this annual collection from Ellipse – South America’s leading lingerie maker – breaks new ground with ruched bandeau style bras, v-cut briefs, laced-up pleated cups, corsets and thongs, ruffle trimmed camisoles and feather light wraps. Sets include bras, briefs, thongs, suspenders, laced corsets, bodys and slips. Details such as plain and patterned ribbing and trims, frills, bows and lacing are key elements make sure this pretty collection stands out from the crowd! 🙂
Inspired by Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ One Hundred Years of Solitude the theme of Victorian Colonial opulence is evident in this collection – sensuous pampered ladies indulging in lace, jewels and perfume in the heat of South American boudoirs come to mind when the lingerie pieces are handled. The unique leaf/paisley patterned and ‘embossed’ lace fabrics, chiffon and lightweight cottons and other luxury fabrics featured come in toasted shades such as vanilla, soft gold and fresh mint as well as smoky greys, subtle silver and black. The dramatic use of white lace over black pieces complements the pure white lingerie, which remains a staple of the Ellipse Bridal collection.
Sizes range from 32, 34, 36 and 38 and in cups A to D for the contour bras. All other pieces are available in S, M, L and XL.
