Maison Close, the lingerie label that hit The Lingerie Post with a huge splash last september is back with two absolutely breathtaking new collections that were first introduced to the lingerie world at the Salon de la Lingerie in Paris earlier this year. The two collections are both absolutely amazing – even though they sort of contradict each other. Villa Caprice is extremely extravagant and looks very geometrical, whereas Bel-Ami is much more intimate, a beautiful and seductive retro collection…
Dynamic, modern and beautiful. The Villa Caprice collection, like passion itself, has no time for moderation. Maison Close shows this with beautiful accessories (belt, hold-ups and bodices) along with pulse-increasing undergarments to dress a bare arm, wrap around the waist or enhance the curve of a heel. To give free rein to your fancy and to ensure a variety of pleasures, the collection has been designed so that the various items (shorty, G-string, suspenders, etc.) can be worn on top of one another, playing with all the possible combinations to give you the ability to create your own look.
Like I said before, a much more intimate and vintage-styled collection. When I saw the first photos I was extremely impressed, and taking a closer look at some of these pieces I am just in love with them.
The items have kept the girdling properties which made them such a hit while at the same time releasing the body from its constraints thanks to flexible and stretch materials such as mesh or voile fabric. The mousseline suspender belt body suit makes the structure of the garment visible while highlighting the curves of the body. The classically inspired pieces are redesigned to create outfits which are original and yet seem so familiar. An example is the jaw-dropping traditional waspie to which a G-string is attached (see pic below!). Absolutely gorgeous – judge for yourself!
I was so impressed with Maison Close last time I mentioned them on TLP – and it looks like they did it again! They still have a very pretty website at maison-close.com, check it out for more photos, more information and info on where to buy!
