If you've not been following the Lingerie Secret Santa on social media, you have most certainly been missing out! Organised by the very talented Karolina Laskowska, it's a group of independent lingerie and loungewear designers and brands, who are each sending another designer a gift from their own range, and letting you know all about it. You get to find out some great new gift ideas from brands you might not have heard of, and we all get to have a present, so it's a win-win for everyone! Our designer and founder Leanna has picked out our gift ready to send, and here's why....
I have chosen the Eleanor Mink full cup bra and classic brief from the classic range as our Secret Santa gift to send.
The designer I'll be gifting has a definite vintage feel to a lot of her pieces so I'm sure she'll appreciate the aesthetic, not to mention being a fellow silk lover. Her newer styles have a much punchier edge though; it got me thinking how she might work one of our styles into her wardrobe. The Eleanor Mink immediately stood out, as it echoes some of the colours in her newest collection, which is my absolute favourite so far of her styles, and has such a strong colour story.
I can just picture her pairing the Eleanor with some of her gorgeous loungewear pieces as a full set, or wearing the bra with some of her own brand's new season French knickers as a great mix-and-match set, combining colours whilst bringing vintage style right bang up to date.
Everything will be carefully wrapped up in black tissue, and is being sent out with some of our specialist silk washing liquid in a beautiful Harlow & Fox gift box with hand-crafted gold wax seal. There's nothing quite like having nice packaging to unwrap as well!
There's some fantastic designers taking part - can you guess who might be unwrapping the Eleanor Mink from Santa this year?
I can't wait to see what everyone else is getting - Angela Friedman has already shown us her present, from none other than Karolina herself, and Ayten Gasson has told us what she's sending, but not who to.. And obviously I can't wait for some new lingerie myself!
Keep following #LingerieSecretSanta on social media to see more gifts being unwrapped, and join in the conversation yourself to share what you'd love Santa to bring you!
