Raine and Bea, the luxe lingerie label mixes military shades with pouting pin-ups in their new collection “Officer’s Mess”.
Fast becoming a favourite of burlesque lovers and vintage vixens, Raine & Bea has unveiled a new collection of stunning pieces in silk, satin and net. Named “Officer’s Mess,” it’s a naughty-but-nice take on military shades, in homage to the centenary of WWI and the pin-up girls beloved by WWII soldiers.
Fashion lovers and celebrity stylists, take note! Stand-out pieces include cross-body bras, high-waisted mesh waspies and half-cup lace slips.
Raine & Bea’s signature looks (wide cross-over straps, top stitch detailing and ostrich feathers) remain, while the Officer’s Mess collection also
features satin bras and bralettes, knickers, thongs, suspender belts, girdles, half-cup slips, corsets and a stunning ostrich feather micro-mini
skirt with braces.
With the attention to detail that characterises Raine & Bea, the construction of garments is vital to ensure they’re both ultra-flattering and comfortable to wear – fashionistas will note that pieces are meticulously made from silk satin, lace fabric, woven gold net, steel boning, ostrich feathers, powernet, gold metal fittings (bra rings, D-rings, suspender clips) and wide plush elastic, with hand-sewn detailing and glittering Swarovski crystals to finish them off.
This season’s colour palette uses burgundy, nude, black, brown/gold and ochre, with trims of black ostrich feathers – and everything in the collection is designed and made in the UK. Raine & Bea’s lingerie is conceived to be shown off, not hidden away – it can be enjoyed for boudoir
dressing, stage wear or even a feature piece for a show-stopping evening outfit. Quick, march to Raine & Bea for this gorgeous collection – guaranteed to leave any onlooker standing to attention.
