Last year, Mandolina introduced Mint Siren as burlesque inspired lingerie. Mint Siren is back with a gorgeous Spring/Summer 2009 collection. The new collection continues the burlesque tradition, but many of the pieces are so great, I’d be happy to just have some in my knickers drawer.
One the left are super high girdle knickers known as the Uma. They have silk and stretch netting and a single Y-suspender on each leg for 89.50 UK. This is shown with the Celia pasties in simple black for 22.00 UK. On the right, the Lilly Waspie Corset. It is a silk satin piece with crinkled chiffon covering four layers and boning. This is for corset trained waists and is 279.00 UK. It is shown with the halter-top, triangle-cup Isabella bra in pink for 49.50 UK and the Joanna string with crinkled silk for 35.50 UK.
On the left, the Rapunzel play (79.50 UK) suit with two silk bows on the front and a third silk bow in the middle of the back. The latter can be used to gently tie the hands behind the back. This is paired with the Mary string made from a fine lace front panel, small pearl accent, and not much else for 32.50 UK. On the right, a different look at the Emma bra and the Theresa knickers with the bows attached, see below.
On the left, Bunny knickers are gathered silk with a French opening and bow in back for 59.50 UK. Paired with the Mindy bandeau in black silk for 32.50 UK. On the right, the Josephine under bust corset 382.50 UK, with the open cup Emma bra shown with detachable bows for 69.50 UK, shown with the Theresa knickers without the detachable bows for 59.50 UK, and the Anna knee socks with bow accent under the knee for 25.00 UK.
