It would appear lingerie is a bit of a theme for me at the moment, as are anniversaries in the fashion world, with Mulberry being the latest to celebrate with 40 years. A few weeks ago I was invited to the '10 years young' party for the sophisticatedÂ luxury underwear label Damaris. They also have the second line, Mimi Hollidays, which is just a delicious but perhaps with a more youthful approach. 33Â Portland Place (of Kings Speech fame) was transformed into a playful exhibit of underwear and balloons. The pastel blue case stacked perilously high and covered in reams of ribbon were too tempting not to have a sneeky peek inside. (if only IÂ was 7 foot tall)
The beautiful cases and party bagsÂ all lined up.
The collections had been shown to press in the day and below are some of my favourite pieces, although you can see the details close up the elegance is perhaps only fully appreciated wen they are seen on the model, such as the opening picture, and below my snaps.
It was lucky it was a warm night and the rooms full because the models wandering the rooms had very little else to keep them warm.
