It’s not hyperbole when I state that Louis Vuitton’s spring 2007 lingerie is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
My very favorite is not this set in pale pink Liberty fabric—it’s the same set in Liberty blues, oranges, and reds. You can see an image if you go to Tabitha Simmons’ “Runway to Reality” archives and click through the slide show.
You’ll know the set when you see it: quilted cups in a red rose Liberty print, the rest in a vibrant blue/orange Tatum Liberty print. It takes my breath away every time. Here’s a muted version, produced by scanning a printout.
As the set costs some $580 (it’s probably no longer available), I did the next best thing: I purchased enough Liberty fabric to make my own mini version, purely for display. I haven’t begun cutting the fabric yet, but I have the sketch completed, the cunningly tiny buttons, and, of course, the glory of the Liberty fabric.
And now that I’ve announced my intentions publicly, I’ll be sure to follow through!
