We are SO excited to announce that Chantal Thomass lingerie will be arriving at Faire Frou Frou this Spring! This classic French line has long been sought out by our boutique, but Chantal was only selling a 'difusion' (or lower pricepoint) line at Victoria's Secret flagship stores in the U.S. (in addition to Europe). Now the brand is expanding to specialty lingerie boutiques in the U.S., which includes Faire Frou Frou! We have a strong feeling that not too many stores will be carrying this collection...in fact, we only know of one other shop in the country that picked it up! Nonetheless, we ordered the Spring 2007 collection this week and saw plenty of frou-frou, frilly, and sexy pieces. Quite a few groups included polka dot patterns which we LOVE, and certainly ordered. We are unable to post the pictures of the new collections just yet, but just take our word that you will love it. Other than the polka dots, we also loved the high-waisted cincher briefs...what that means is that the brief covers you almost up to your waist, with a cinching or corset type of effect of slimming your waistline.
10 new groups will come out this Spring, along with their lovely hosiery line and accessories. We love exciting lines like this that define the look of Faire Frou Frou. Expect to see the new group in our store around late February/March 2007. (all photos courtesy of Chantal Thomass & Ellen von Unwerth).

The new must-have line arriving at Faire Frou Frou, and launching in the U.S., is Madame V. This brand is all about frou-frou, frilly, sexy lingerie that's quite fun and unique. For example, Madame V is launching its "Fantasy Gift Case" which is beautiful black box tied in ribbon that contains a themed dress-up outfit, accessories and instructions! Attached are images of the 3 themes you can purchase; naughty office worker, french maid and burlesque siren. The boxes are packaged beautifully in one of Madame V's black logo cases. We will be carrying these cases in Faire Frou Frou for the holiday season and know it will be a huge success...and the price is just right!
The ladies pictured in this post are the faces behind Madame V. The lady in the red dress is the London-based designer, who I met and initially thought was the lingerie model for the event they were hosting! The ladies hosted a suite at the lovely Chateau Marmont in LA and served glasses of pink champagne and huge pink cupcakes from Sweet Lady Jane bakery. Their room was decorated like a 1940s boudoir and had rolling racks filled with the Spring 2007 collection. I learned of their growing celebrity clientele, which includes Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice)...and Posh is shown wearing one of their gorgeous kimono robes in her book "That Extra Half an Inch". We will be stocking that kimono in our store for the Holiday season as well.
Madame V was recently honored as one of the top names in style in the U.K. along with Agent Provocateur.
The bulk of goods for Faire Frou Frou will be delivered to the store in February 2007. It includes designs that are both girly, youthful & fun as well as sophisticated & glamourous. We can't wait for you to see it too! Keep checking back with us!

We have received our Fall shipment from Myla and love, love, love it! This collection really is the most fun (or outrageous) of the brands we currently carry...and if you like what you see with this group you will really enjoy our Madame V collection arriving in 2007 (a separate brand, also from England).
The new Myla group is cheeky, fun and chic...just as lovely as ever! Straight from the U.K., this luxe line pulls out all of the bells and whistles - from feather trims, sheer mousseline silks to open (or crotchless) panties. We know it will be a hit this holiday season, especially with our male clientele, who typically prefer more daring ensembles for their ladies. The full collection is available at our Studio City store, but we are continuously adding items to our online shop as well.
Looking for a cute gift idea...that's less than $30? The 'Smart Ass' thongs have received quite a response at our store - each of the thongs sporting a sassy little saying across the back. These silky, second-skin thongs come in a variety of categories ranging from bridal and mother-to-be, to witty and sarcastic. They are packaged just as you see in the photos, and are sized S/M and M/L.
Since we last posted, another Faire Frou Frou ensemble has been seen on Desperate Housewives! It's the Fifi Chachnil padded bra, garter belt and brief that's pink with a "Dentelle Anglaise" (English lace) overlay. Eva Longoria's character wore this look for one of her scenes.
Of course you can purchase this look at Faire Frou Frou.
