Surfing around online to see if I could find some cool retro swimwear for this summer season, I came across Signe Tolstrup’s S/S08 collection of ’afterwear’ as she calls it.
I’ve known about her designs for some time now as she is one of the few ‘famous’ Danish lingerie designers.
Last year’s A/W collection had a Frieda Kahlo-sort of theme with strong colours and a mysterious mood. It was lingerie with an attitude of force and sexual desire. The spring collection is more delicate, but still ever so seductive. I’m thinking Marie Antoinette caught in bed with Anaïs Nin – or something.The colours are innocent and girlish, but still tempting and mouth-watering. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for this fall.
