Upscale lingerie house Coco de Mer has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2019 line-up, one that takes inspiration from the 1920s era of art deco, theatre and cabaret, and a dash of that decade’s pin-up style.
The fashion brand collaborated with The V&A Museum, the world’s largest repository of art, on the look of the lingerie. Combing through the museum’s paintings, sculptures and historical objects from the 1920s, Coco de Mer’s designers were inspired to come up with 21 pieces of lingerie told in three stories, or groupings: Gilded Palm, Lover’s Arch and Golden Peacock.
“It has been an exciting process to develop another season of decadent designs inspired by the V&A archives, this time focusing our inspiration on one of their current exhibitions,” said Coco de Mer CEO Lucy Litwack. “We believe that the SS19 collection showcases key elements from both the Coco de Mer and the V&A brand including luxury, opulence and glamour. I’m thrilled with how the second collection has materialised and to see the beauty of the designs come to life with our campaign shoot.”
The photographer is John Rankin Waddell, best-known for simply using his middle name Rankin for his photography work. Rankin has photographed Hollywood stars, world-famous models, and captured provocative images that have been compiled in several books.
