"Elle Macpherson Intimates releases a Moroccan-inspired collection for Summer 2013.
The 2013 Elle Macpherson Intimates Summer collection takes you on a journey through Morocco, from the souks of Casablanca to the medinas of Marrakech and the riads of Fes.
Creative director Elle Macpherson elaborates on her design influences; “Exploring Morocco revealed a rich culture steeped in diverse civilisations, where tradition and modernity flourish. We combined the sights, scenes and feelings we experienced to create one of our most feminine, luxurious and captivating collections to date.”
An eclectic mix of strong colours in jewelled tones and spicy hues is enriched by muted greys, blush pinks and neutral shades. Prints are given a contemporary twist and influenced by mosaic, tiles and ceramics, the sharpness of geometry softened by romantic rose florals.
Highlights from the collection include:
The vintage inspired “Duo” features lace, with contrast edging, pintuck detailing and satin inserts. This silver and cream range is available as an Underwire bra, Contour bra, Bikini brief, Thong brief and Chemise
“Exotic Plume” combines delicate floral lace and satin keyhole detailing, and features a contrasting trim. Coloured in Bordeaux red and Sunkiss the range features an Underwire bra, Contour Balconnet bra, Midi brief, Thong brief and Chemise.
“Lush Bloom” is a satin story with a floral lace edge. This Insignia Blue and Cameo Rose range is available as a Plunge Boost bra, Midi brief, Thong brief and Chemise.
“Moroccan Rose” features a vibrant floral print on sheer chiffon with ruffled edges and rouleau straps. The range features a Contour Balconnet bra, Bikini brief, Thong brief and Chemise.
“Oasis” combines rich two-tone lace with a scallop edge along the neckline. This Dove Grey and Silver range includes an Underwire bra, Contour Plunge bra, Bikini brief, Thong brief, and a Chemise in a soft modal fabric.
THE BASIC COLLECTION DEBUTS A NEW RANGE
The Moroccan theme does not extend to the Basic collection, which has introduced a new range that could give your bust the most comfortable uplift ever!
It’s called The Body, and is available in two colour ranges; the Grey and Retro Cream Sweat Shirt, and the Little Black Bra, specifically designed for your Little Black Dress. Each range features three bra styles (Contour Plunge, Strapless and Underwire) and two briefs (Boyleg and Thong).
The seamless bras feature innovative foam cups with a soft suede-like lining for comfortable all day wear, and give you a smooth, invisible finish under clothing. Their most significant benefit however, is giving your bust customised uplift with precision push-up padding built-in to the cups! The bras work with your body; the fuller your bust the thinner the padding.
The matching boyleg and thong briefs are also seamless and elastic-free so they won’t dig-in at your waist or reveal signs of VPL. Luxurious to the touch and soft on your skin, The Body is the ultimate in comfort and the epitome of casual luxe.
Both the Moroccan collection and The Body range will be available from June 2013."
