Victoria’s Secret Designer Collection Spring/Summer 2015
Victoria's Secret was founded in 1972, but the company didn't really hit its stride until the 1990's when it began to use hot supermodels to show off its sexy line of lingerie.Today, Victoria's Secret is a pop culture phenomenon that has given American women permission to strut, look sexy, and still retain their wholesome "naughty but nice girl" image.
Wrong are those who believe that underwear can be the simplest. The love for yourself begin with the desire to acquire new and beautiful bras. Once you find a need to buy not only fancy dresses, but also other wardrobe items, your self-esteem will grow significantly, and the surrounding will instantly observe the changes that would be difficult to hide.
Most of what sets this collection apart is the use of Swarovski crystal elements to provide a bit of sparkle, shine, and textural interest. A heavily-beaded detachable halter strap gives new life to a lace balconette bra. Pale pink panties glitter with girlish charm. And a light blue lace bodysuit has ice-like gems along the cups.
There are a few pieces in the collection that stand out. The red chiffon teddy has a daring plunge front crafted of sheer tulle that is dotted with Swarovski crystals. It ties in a halter at the base of the neck for a completely open back. The attached briefs have corded Chantilly lace with a sheer panel at the front.The delicate lace and chiffon slip has an unstructured cut that skims the body. Lace curves around the bodice and hips with the scalloped edge forming an attractive neckline. The below-the-knee length has a lace-trimmed slit on one thigh for ease of movement. A barely-there, deeply scooped back is topped with narrow ties that give the appearance of one little tug and the slip is gone (which is fun).
Lastly, the ice blue teddy is quite texturally interesting, with Chantilly lace darted cups and center panel edged with floral guipure lace. Swarovski crystals hug the outer edges of the cups and decorate the floral applique at the bra’s center. There is a waist-defining ribbon band that ties in the back above a V-string bottom. This is a pretty take on “something blue” for brides to be.
