Linger Awhile with Wundervoll and Isabel Marant

Sometimes I sniff at the NYT Pulse section in the Sunday Styles; sometimes I linger.

Today was a linger(ie) morning, as I happily gazed upon this rather stern but sexy set by Wundervoll, of Berlin. It’s a bit Charlotte Rampling in that Night Porter flick, a bit Madonna in vintage Gaultier, and maybe even a little Barbara Bel Geddes (as the lingerie designer in Vertigo, not as Miss Ellie).

And then there were these boots by French designer Isabel Marant. As I’ve said before, I’m not really into a stacked heel, and would usually raise an eyebrow at chains, but the combination here really works for me.



So my only lingering (ahem) question is this: should one wear the boots with the set?

love your puns, love your finds!

I was intrigued by the undies too. I'm always annoyed that the more interesting your clothes are, the uglier the undies have to be.

I've never really gotten jazzed about lingerie, but as I get jazzed about boots on a daily basis ... YOW. Those are amazing.

The lingerie has a sort of "nautical feel" so I think I would prefer something a little sportier. Well as for the boots, I see some sort of fur, chinchilla & chains.

Why yes!

I loved the look of both the lingerie, and the boots. Ahhhhh.

Hee hee...Yes, I'm alive! :)

I love the boots. They're fierce and I'm trying to incorporate fierce(ness) into my wardrobe.

Why don't you like stacked heels? I love them.
Those boots are fab, very rock and very classy.

That lingerie is simply divine! The bra looks like it may need a little more support, but those pants are too too perfect.
