Luxury lingerie designer Ayten Gasson has collaborated with Burlesque performer Luna De Lovely to create a limited edition collection. Capturing the gothic feel of the Victorian period on beautifully designed vintage-inspired silk lingerie, each piece is a wearable work of art. The print is delicate yet dark, and has been digitally illustrated as a salute to the heroes of print and pattern of that era, such as William Morris.
Each piece has been hand screen printed in the designer’s studio in Brighton, England. Luna De Lovely, aka Amanda Chapman-Bruce, is a surface pattern designer based in London. She has had commissions for illustrative drawings, corporate logos, and print and pattern work for fashion, accessories, and beauty.
By day, Amanda works as a Homewards designer creating quirky, fun and beautiful product and pattern, by evening she becomes Luna De Lovely, and can be found on the Burlesque circuit singing her sultry tones.
Thanks for speaking to us, Ms De Lovely! Are you the matriarch when it comes to matching underwear?
Definitely always matching! Anything else is just lazy.
VPL or barely there?
These days you can have beautifully big knickers that look hardly there, so I’ll cheat and say both depending on my mood!
Lacy and racy or sweet and seductive?
I’m afraid my lingerie draw may be a very close equivalent to Imelda Marcos and her shoes, so I’ll take racy and lacy, sweet and seductive, and add sophisticated and understated, sporty but naughty, flirty and pretty, and vintage vamp…what can I say, I’m greedy!
The seductively cheeky collection consists of an Eye Mask, High Waisted Knicker and Nipple Pasties, and is available exclusively at www.aytengasson.com. Go and have a look now – your underwear drawer will thank you!
