Cold Comfort

Does your heart flutter when new fashions appear on the Jane’s Vanity website? Do you spend your Sundays attending to your lingerie collection? Do you feel that you need just one more bra? If the answers are yes, yes, and yes, then make friends with Mrs. Smiling, a delightful character in the novel Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons:

“Mrs. Smiling’s second interest was her collection of brassieres, and her search for a perfect one. She was reputed to have the largest and finest collection of these garments in the world, it was hoped that on her death it would be left to the nation.

She was an authority on the cut, fit, colour, construction and proper functioning of brassieres: and her friends had learned that her interest, even in moments of extreme emotional or physical distress, could be aroused and her composure restored by the hasty utterance of the phrase:

‘I saw a brassiere today, Mary, that would have interested you…’ ”

Although British actress Joanna Lumley is a brilliant Mrs. Smiling in the 1995 movie version of this story, you might cast yourself in her role, instead. And, JV has some new pieces that would interest you…

From Voiment: JV welcomes two young Chinese designers whose remarkable work incorporates a variety of asymmetrical shapes, clashing colors and fabrics, color blocks and eco-friendly materials. 

From Studio Pia: In scintillating gold stretch silk, the Thara Lingerie Set offers a sleek silhouette that plays peekaboo with scallops of exquisite jewel-inspired tulle. 

From Taryn Winters: So collectible, so sexy, the Pilar Beaded Lingerie Set alternates between sensuous light blue transparent mesh and opulent hand-beaded Solstiss lace. Fresh, festive, unforgettable.

From Ritratti: Brighten up your lingerie life with the Michelle Cobalt Balconette Set. Happy and bold, it is a tribute to Italian design and engineering.

Enjoy your connoisseur moment in the most intriguing lingerie from Jane’s Vanity!
