The delicate fabrics, soft colours and feminine lace offers a really romantic and seductive selection of vintage boudoir lingerie for a modern bride who is looking for a selection of nightwear and underwear for her wedding night or, perhaps for a surprising boudoir shoot.
Fantastic collaboration between some of the Norfolk’s finest showcasing the beautiful Lingerie Parlour selection!
Leah Loverich started ‘The Lingerie Parlour’ blog in 2011 and opened the online Etsy store in November 2013. She says ” ‘The Lingerie Parlour’ began as an online blog dedicated to showcasing beautifully made and photographed lingerie. The blogs aim was to inspire those of us who adore purchasing and wearing feminine undergarments. As the following grew, the potential for an online boutique also grew and that is how today we have TLP Boutique. The Lingerie Parlour is feminine and timeless with a gentle touch of frou frou as it offers fabulously original Vintage boudoir wear, ranging from lace detailed slips and negligees to satin robes and pastel night gowns, all of which are entirely one off pieces.”
As a fashion stylist I was asked to arrange and style the first Lingerie Parlour look book shoot last year and I was thrilled when Leah asked me to organise this years shoot too. The mood board Leah had put together featured lots of colour and flowers and I was excited to start putting a team together. I had admired Tatum’s work for several years so was delighted when she said she was keen to be on board. I had stayed at Stratton’s hotel in Swaffham for my wedding anniversary in May and I just knew that their eclectic and individually decorated rooms would make a fantastic backdrop for this shoot. On the day we had the use of three of their rooms, each more stunning than the last. We used a range of artificial and real flowers (as many as we could get our hands on) and lots of floaty, sheer fabrics to decorate the, already beautiful, rooms.
For the hair I wanted something sexy and feminine, bed hair, and Cherrie created the looks with waves and twists. For the makeup we wanted something with colour that would stand out, but not be too over the top, so Claire used colour on the cheekbones as well as the eyelids which created a beautiful, striking look.
Leah says of her inspiration for the shoot “for this photo shoot I really wanted to capture how delicate these items are, yet how freshly modern and seductive they can be, and that is something that I truly feel Tatum and Abi fulfilled for me. With both their keen eyes for detail and use of colour they created a large collection of photographs which within it display a range of moods and atmospheres, from ultimately delicate and youthful (such as those of Georgia in a vintage 1930s style pale pink slip and bridal veil) to seductively dark and mysterious (such as those of Hannah in a vintage dusky pink night dress surrounded by violet flowers), all whilst capturing the charming details of the vintage items that The Lingerie Parlour offers.”
