I was in Paris a couple of weeks ago for a lingerie exhibition and discovered this beautiful brand while I was there. Gilda & Pearl is a gorgeous UK brand that was created in 2008 by lingerie designer Diane Houston. She named it Gilda & Pearl after taking inspiration from some of her favourite passions. Gilda is the Rita Hayworth character from the 1946 film of the same name, and pearl refers to "something which is exquisitely beautiful to look at, never mass produced". The result is stunning.
The brand has the right balance of old school glamour combined with what every modern lingerie-loving girl would want from her smalls. Personally I am a big lover of eyelash lace and it's here in abundance in the Gilda & Pearl collection.
The brand is also available as made-to-order so no mass-manufactured knickers here!
The website is stunning too with some truly gorgeous photographs to accompany each style as you can see from the ones I've posted here.
Enjoy the photos and perhaps get some inspiration for Valentine's day....?
