Lingerie is the stuff of fantasy. This book is an exploration into the elements required to turn a piece of fragile fabric into an erotic design.
Understanding how a designer moves from material to a creation that is a seductive work of art is almost impossible to define; this is fashion at its most intimate and sensual best...designed to heighten the senses and play with the imagination.
The designers in this book, some of the best lingerie artists in the world, are incredibly skilled at translating a sense of inner desire into an external expression in satin and silk, combining luxury and longing, strength and vulnerability.
Featured are collected works from: Andres SardA, AngA(c)lique DeVil, Blush, Capricine, Damaris, Eternal Spirits, Fred&Ginger, French Cancan, Guia La Bruna, HMS Latex, Hopeless, I.D.
