The French lingerie label, Les Jupons de Tess, which has only been around a short time (since 2009), is already ﬁnding its beautiful creations are ﬁrmly positioned on many women’s wish lists. Its latest autumn–winter 2011–12 collection is no different, exuding elegance reminiscent of an 18th-century Parisian woman. As an era characterized by female ‘coquetterie’ and the ‘art of dressing’, this collection is set to tempt.
Les Jupons de Tess uses such luxurious fabrics from French dévorée lace, satin and silks in classic nude tones covered in white polka dots, to soft pink satin trimmed sheer black lace ensembles, to completely black lace and silk pieces. There is a quality of innocence mingled with demure seduction as the models playfully pose with ostrich feathers, clad in long stands of pearls and suspenders. Of course, the signature frills and ribbons adorn various styles, and a pair of black, lace trimmed wrist cuffs adds a mischievous ﬂair.
So if you have found yourself tempted, Les Jupons de Tess can be found in stores in France, Italy, Japan, China, the UK and the USA.—Vicki Matias
