Nicole Gill Lingerie will soon be releasing their third collection named ‘A Beautiful Sacrifice’. The collection will be released on the company’s official website www.nicolegill.com on the 3rd of September. The new collection will include a variety of lingerie and nightwear pieces, lovely silhouette enhancing corsets and girdles. The corsets in the collection were adapted from Victorian styles to create a unique and vintage garment which differs from those currently on the market.
‘A Beautiful Sacrifice’ collection combines burgundy and black silks with black lace paneling and detailing. The collection draws inspiration from the story ‘Miss Saigon’, with an emphasis on the character of Kim, who sacrifices her own life in order to improve that of her son. The darker materials used within the collection are inspired by that story. In addition, ‘A Beautiful Sacrifice’ contains more daring and risqué shapes and designs than those in previous collections, yet remains true to the designer’s familiar sweet and feminine style.
Nicole states that ‘The Miss Saigon story has always stuck with me, I thought it was the perfect influence for my A/W collection as it is dramatic, yet romantic.’
Bleding vintage Vietnamese styling with a contemporary twist, Gill creates notable garments such as a luxurious kimono and briefs with ruffle detailing. Nicole Gill’s stunning and sexy designs blur the line between underwear and outerwear, making them an absolute must have in any woman’s wardrobe.
The Nicole Gill Lingerie company was established by Nicole in 2010. The brand has since then released two collections named ‘Welcome to the Tea Party’ and ‘A Parisian Romance’. All pieces from the company are handmade by Nicole using 100% Silk and are available in sizes 8 – 16, bras 32A – 36D. Nicole Gill Lingerie also offers a bespoke service available on the company’s website. Visit Nicole Gill Lingerie here.
Lola Haze is a lingerie/loungewear/outerwear fusion for the playful, confident woman with a bold, whimsical fashion sense.
“Design is molding juxtapositions: elegance and kitsch, innocence and seduction, playfulness and sophistication, and for Lola Haze™, public and private. I love lingerie because it dances between public and private domains. It can be a woman’s own secret that makes her feel special, or something beautiful for display. Lola Haze™ is for a playful, confident woman who loves the transformative power of clothing and dresses for no one but herself. She can wear Lola Haze™ as innerwear, loungewear, or outerwear.” – Laura Mehlinger
Produced with love in New York City’s Garment District, Lola Haze pieces retail from $35.00 – $169.00 at Victoria’s Secret (Designer Collections) and better boutiques throughout the U.S., Canada and the UK, soon to arrive on LolaHaze.com e-commerce (late July).

Kristian Giambi’s BRULEE indulges its clients without much effort. The clever combo of comfort and style, this is the perfect invention for those who do not like to compromise. At the BRULEE Lingerie & Loungewear SS11 Trunk Show at Ajune Day Spa in NYC Upper East side, Giambi featured some of her newest designs that included velvety white bridal wear. One of the pieces that I especially liked was black silk lingerie outlined by thin white borders and highlighted with black Swarovski crystal. All of Giambi’s lingerie is handcrafted in New York City’s Garment District to support the nation’s garment industry. Sexy, simple, but elegant, BRULEE can transform you into the modern goddess you always wanted to be without the frills.
