Grace Waking

Grace Waking


Sara touched on the timeless charm of the new Stella pieces a few days ago, but I just had to elaborate on the glory of the "Grace Waking" bra and boyshort. Made from the most ephemeral shade of pale grey silk, the set is at once romantic and delicate in sensibility, yet still modern in form and function. It calls to mind Jane Austen novels and wind-swept moors, but would perhaps be more timely on Audrey Tautou in a new French rom-com. The low cut of the triangle bra is not unlike that of the Princesse Tam Tam Delicate which Sara waxed rhapsodic about yesterday. The juxtaposition of that incredible silk with a delicate but resilient lace is a match made in heaven, particularly on the boyshort where it sits just so on the derriere (see above.) To me, the most interesting thing about Stella's lingerie is her ability to make such lovely and elegant pieces that still manage to be incredibly sexy. Many designers attempt this, but few execute the marriage so perfectly.
