Grazia Magazine; Sexy Vintage

photos by Nelson Simoneau, stylist Santa Bevacqua, images via Grazia

Thanks to Catherine, the designer for the UK lingerie label Kiss Me Deadly, we discovered these gorgeous photographs from Grazia magazine.  Kiss Me Deadly (whose Candybox Knickers are shown in the 4th pic from the top) happens to be featured among some of fashion's top designers, including Carine Gilson, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel & Prada in this spread by Nelson Simoneau entitled "Sex and Vintage".  As you can see, there's a definite vintage vibe to each image with a hint of lingerie here and there...whether it's a bit of a bra showing or a pretty pair of stockings or thigh highs.  We are really impressed by the beauty of the hosiery, which happens to be provided by an Italian label called Transparenze - those lilac thigh highs are so beautiful!  Once again we are so pleased to see hosiery as a featured trend this season, much more so than previous years (since it inevitably becomes more popular as the weather gets cooler). 
Do you have a favorite look?  Do you think that 1960's bouffant will ever become a trend again?!

I am crazy about look 1. I love everything about it! p.s. I would wear a bouffant & with the Betty Draper craze I wouldn't count it out.

These images are indeed gorgeous. I love the touch of vintage. It makes it less seductive and more subtly flirty feminine. (if that even makes sense). Regardless - gorgeous finding. :)

it is a trend! in fact, it has been for a while, esp. in london, i rocked it all last summer with amy winehouse-esque eyeliner and little denim dresses and rose-print playsuits. Looks just as good with this season's ladylike trend as well.
