Black is back: Go back to black this Spring with sultry lingerie sets from Morgan Lane
The sun is finally rearing it’s glorious head at the YCB HQ are suddenly awash with colour and print and of course, a bare leg! But once Summer shows its signs that doesn’t mean we focus on what’s outside and forget what’s underneath. We’re talking lingerie ladies, and lingerie can make or break a look. If you don’t feel comfortable in colour lingerie you won’t feel comfortably in yourself and this can throw a whole outfit off balance. But beautiful lingerie is at it’s very best after hours and thanks to our new favourite brand Morgan Lane you can leave your colour at the door and go back to black. Pretty, sleek, sophisticated and oh so sultry, black lingerie needn’t mean boring basics. With new collections featuring delicate lace and sheer mesh, black is most definitely back.
The daughter of designer Jill Stuart, Morgan has fashion and design in her genes and after honing her skills at Cornell University, Central Saint Martins and, naturally, Jill Stuart, her work evolved and new kid on the block Morgan Lane was founded in 2014 in New York. Developed with a talent for illustration and a love of dolls the seductive yet sweet collection was born. For Morgan, “Lingerie is the most essential piece of fashion because you wear it closest to your body, it’s your special secret underneath it all.” Represented by brand muse Lanie, a natural combination of Morgan’s skills in illustration and lingerie, the Lanie doll is the Morgan Lane girl – she embodies the shy, sultry and playful girl that women identify with the brand. Laine is a whimsical fixture on the unique packaging, embroidered nightwear and even custom lace in the feather light slips, further adding to Morgan Lane’s one-of-a-kind feel.
After a stunning debut in 2014, Morgan Lane is going from strength to strength and the latest range for SS16 is something else. It’s equal parts playful and naughty, with peekaboo lace bras offsetting girly frilled rompers. There’s also a slight sporty feel with the triangle fit bra and high cut panties but still feminine with lace trims or in blush tones. The brand also offer a custom embroidery service, so you can wear your initials on your Tami pyjama top for those weekend getaways.
The collection redefines basic as an essential but also a luxury and nothing feels better than that. Slipping on the Avery bra and the Harlet panty for every day wares will make the most ordinary of outfits feel that little bit more special. For nights where seduction is on the menu one the Eloise bra will do, paid with the Frederikke garter and the Lou thong for something sultry. There are even lush bodysuits if you’re feeling an underwear as outerwear night – Morgan Lane has a piece for every woman because every woman embodies and inspires the Morgan Lane philosophy.
Morgan’s attention to detail, use of modern fabrics and hardware, and love for classic elegance has allowed her to deliver a one of a kind collection. Now stocked worldwide from the US, London Paris and beyond, Morgan Lane is hot on our radar and we are lusting hard after it. We’re ready to be Lanie girls!
