Sometimes we need a little romance. A movie might provide it. And we’ve found a good one. We’ve also discovered a new romantic lingerie line at Jane’s Vanity: Emma Harris arrives with a splash of retro glamour and lace. Welcome. Perhaps we could watch the movie while wearing Emma Harris lingerie for a perfect evening at home. Join us:
Ladies in Black is a film that has been adapted from a musical that was adapted from a novel, all from Australia. Set in the late 50s, these ladies in black work in a toney department store In Sydney. And each lady has a story to tell. The movie sparkles with nostalgia and with smart individual performances. It focuses especially upon the changes occurring in Australia after World War II as European immigrants settled there. If you like the movie, which is readily available, try the book too.* They could suit your romantic mood.
Emma Harris definitely will. Picture a small lingerie atelier based in Derbyshire, “the historical heart of the UK’s textile industry.” Here, in a former lace mill, every step of the production process, from design concept through to finished garment, is carried out in-house. Designer Claire Emma Harris is dedicated to reintroducing artisan sewing techniques to lingerie, and she teaches them to her staff herself. Such attention results in exquisite garments to spark your romantic imagination. The designs have a vintage feel, often inspired by Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements. See what we mean with two of Emma Harris’s newest collections that are studies in the art of appliqued lace.
The Amelie Collection features classic black silk decorated with French sparkle lace. The Amelie Shaped Plunge Bra Set shows off its lace appliques at bra cups and front of panty. The Amelie Black Silk Robe is lavishly decorated with lace at collar, cuffs, and belt.
The Elsa Collection adorns navy silk with French Leavers lace. Its Elsa Navy Silk Pajama Set is crafted of stretch silk satin.The racerback camisole displays its lace on sheer insets at bust. The trousers feature lace-decorated pockets. Wrap it all in the elegant Elsa Navy Silk Robe with lace appliques at the wrists of its traditional Kimono-style sleeves.The lavish embellishment brings to mind a flurry of cherry blossoms.
Thus adorned, we are ready to lie back and reach for the remote control. Restorative romance courtesy of Jane’s Vanity.
