The British lingerie label Mint Siren is brand new to us, but seeing as Faire Frou Frou just stocked them as the first boutique in the US — we can’t wait to introduce you all to the pure divinity of these pieces — hold on to your horses!
The official Mint Siren website introduces the brand as follows: “Mint Siren was created in 2005 by the Swedish designer Josefine Wing, and quickly became a favorite for many vixens around the world. Using high quality fabrics like silk satins and chiffon, deep pile cotton velvets, rich wools and power stretch netting Mint Siren has created a style that marries romantic retro flavor with modern fashion. There are obvious ties with traditions of burlesque, but Mint Siren offers styles that invite to be used with your regular wardrobe.”
When we look at the high resolution photos we’ve gotten, we can only be amazed. The pure luxury of these pieces is so obvious. They’re not cheap — but seeing as you’re clearly getting value for money that’s not even a bad thing. You’re getting a total package; quality and the x-factor. I can only agree with Faire Frou Frou’s Alison Rubke when she says: “Her [Josefine Wing] philosophy is to create flattering, sensual clothing with a retro flavor for the modern woman. Her brand is described as being lavish and provocative; designed for ladies with a passion for extravagance. It’s about having fun with your femininity.”
I’m pretty much convinced. The label isn’t limited to lingerie though, so their website is well worth a visit. Check ‘m out — and if you end up buying something, tell us how much you liked it on the TLP forums! 🙂
