Mimi, It’s Always A Holliday

Mimi Holliday 3 Mimi, Its Always A Holliday
Mimi Holliday’s fresh take on intimates reminds us of how wonderful and refreshing it is to slip into a great pair of delicate undies. Fashion forward designs, feminine silhouettes and intricate detail allow the collection to make us feel sexy and comfortable in our second skin.

Falling in love with their collection a few seasons ago while scouring for lingerie that was tasteful, well designed yet still comfortable and youthful. Mimi Holliday’s brilliant upstaging of other lingerie brands minus the boring or stuffy, creates the perfect spin on sexy meets subtle.

There’s nothing like putting on a well cut bra and panty set to make you feel like a lady and they spare no detail. Stretch silk meets sensual embellishments, the British brand makes one swoon with adoration.

Not your mother’s bra and panties, youthful and fun yet sophisticated and sweet. Mimi Holliday draws you in to their fairytale with carefully constructed silhouettes and beautiful palettes of harmonious hues.

Always forward, this fashion house leaves no element behind. Serving as a great resource for larger busted women wanting designer intimates without having to go the traditional route. With size ranges from 28AA-40GG in bras, and a number of different styles in bottoms to accompany: including knickers, bikinis, and a number of thongs–we’re impressed with their assortment. Not only do they design for a broad range of sizes, they consider every body type when creating their pieces.

We’re celebrating Mimi Holliday Lingerie–making every moment worn, an affair to remember.

Remembering Oscar de la Renta | Telegraph.co.uk

Screen Shot 2014 10 25 at 9.16.28 AM 583x632 Remembering Oscar de la Renta | Telegraph.co.uk

“My role as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best” – Oscar de la Renta. 1932 – 2014

To mark the passing of the master of elegance who dressed every First Lady since Jackie Kennedy, we take a look back to when Oscar de la Renta met Lisa Armstrong:

Anna Wintour telephoned Oscar de la Renta twice during our interview: the two are old friends and, it seems, as thick as thieves. Yet perhaps wisely, America’s master of elegance declined to be drawn on whether the editor of US Vogue was, as rumoured, instrumental in his decision to hire Dior’s fallen designer John Galliano.

The announcement that Galliano was joining the house, albeit initially only for three weeks, came last Friday. There are plenty who consider it a little soon for the disgraced designer to be publicly resurrected (see panel below). But de la Renta doesn’t give a hoot what the plenty think. He will be 81 this year and has had a brush with cancer, but has a posture worthy of Baryshnikov in tailoring worthy of Savile Row (in fact, the impeccable three-piece he is wearing when we meet comes, as do all his suits, from Spain). He looks as fit as a flea. READ MORE HERE

Luxury Posh Glamping! Enjoy

luxury camping Luxury Posh Glamping! Enjoy

Luxury camping kits and glamping, are all the rage right now (especially for love birds). Hey if it was good enough for Matthew McConaughey’s wedding guests, it’s good enough for the rest of us! Long are the days when Keith Chegwin may have caught you on “Down Your Doorstep“, looking rough in your unmentionables at Glastonbury.

Some people (not us here at POSHGLAM) prefer to take a ‘back-to-basics’ approach when they glamp, which makes sense if you are hiking and traveling light (er not with my wardrobe!) However, if you do have a car  and prefer something a bit more up market, why shouldn’t you set up a veritable mini-hotel (or yurt) in the wild? Camping purists have complained that this somewhat misses the point of getting back to nature. To them I say, “well if Mother Nature really wanted us back, she would have given us fur, hooves, and a much stronger immune system, now wouldn’t she?” Instead, she developed grey matter which enables us to invent such fabulous outdoorsy things as portable generators, camping stoves, and king-size inflatable mattresses – in other words,  all the camping equipment you’ll ever need!

You could also argue, that sleeping on a hard surface is better for your back. So is good posture and exercise, but a nice soft place to land is a natural afrodisiac: I’m not ashamed to admit I WANT a nice, big, comfy bed, even in the great outdoors. So, if you fancy a change too, here’s where the inflatable mattresses come in. The best ones are self-inflating (so you don’t have to use your lungs), with a battery that eventually will need to be recharged. You can get cheaper ones that have external air pumps, but that wouldn’t be very romantic or cache now would it?  I personally like mine with a built-in electrical heater. Alternatively, you can get air beds that can be pumped manually by stamping on it repeatedly – a time and calorie-consuming exercise that should be avoided at most costs.

There’s also nothing less satisfying than waking up on a dewy morning and munching on a cereal bar. It’s this type of (so-called) meal that puts people off outdoor activities for life, but it’s actually possible to enjoy a hot, bang up British breakfast, without gathering firewood and rubbing sticks together. Just pack yourself a dual-burner gas stove, and you too could be enjoying a good old fashioned fry-up in no time.

Another particularly unappealing aspect of getting back to nature– especially for women – is popping to the loo. As ‘popping‘ implies that you have somewhere to ‘pop‘, other than behind a tree. However, help is at hand, in the form of collapsible ‘privacy shelters’. Which really makes the whole experience a lot more comfortable and a lot less embarrassing. These can also be fitted with shower attachments, so you can maintain some vestige of cleanliness on your trip.

Finally, what romantic holiday would be complete without our favourite consumer electronics, the laptop, stereo, a portable telly for the foot? Although these can be run on battery power, the batteries don’t tend to last very long, which is why you need a portable generator. Just put a little petrol into the tank, fire up the engine, plug in a four-way, and you’ll feel like you’re back in civilization in no time! Luxury Camping, done that…Now, on to something more insurmountable, check!

Super Fly | Vivienne Westwood For Virgin Atlantic

VA VW Uniform5 e1404593890755 Super Fly | Vivienne Westwood For Virgin Atlantic

Vivienne Westwood has always been fashion forward, but she’s taking her cutting edge design style to new fashion heights–literally. The Brit icon launched her much anticipated red hot uniform collection for Virgin Atlantic on Tues, July 1st, without a Union Jack or safety pin in sight.

Following the announcement of the partnership last year, Sir Richard Branson and Dame Vivienne Westwood, joined a host of other famous faces (Blondie, Naomi Harris, Goldie, Mark Ronson, Matt Smith and Dominic Cooper amongst others) at the Village Underground, London, for the uniforms unveiling. Unfortunately regular folks and passengers alike will have to wait till September 1st to be able to see the uniforms at airports and onboard the Virgin Atlantic flights.

The quintessential Brit known for her maverick punk spirit and ability to challenge the status quo in style (Pharrell’s hat has it’s own Twitter account now), was of course the perfect choice for Branson to reimagine Virgin’s (over a) decade old red uniforms. Their 7,500 staff including cabin crew, pilots, Clubhouse staff and Virgin Holidays employees, will be outfitted in the new uniform consisting of 22-pieces in total.

Inspired by 40s jet-set lifestyle and French couture cutting, the designer and her team created an ultra-feminine silhouette for the female crew. Westwood has often admitted her love of womanly curves and the female form, she has always been a fan of creating a more “glamorous look for the modern woman.” With many of her fashions known for being ‘body conscious’ and ‘cheeky.’ The ladies will be kitted out in a bright red, homage to her own ‘Bettina’ jacket–first seen in the early 90s–with a matching red pencil skirt. Virgin Atlantic’s female crew, will enviously also get an updated pair of her iconic hourglass heels (one of Westwood’s signature designs), in red… obviously. Finishing off their uniforms in a double breasted ‘drape coat’ with cinched waist. Which is absolutely stunning!

After 40 years in the business, her eye for tailoring and detail are impeccable, so the gents in the cabin will look equally sharp. Sporting a Savile Row inspired three-piece suit with a contemporary twist, in a deep burgundy Oxford weave wool. For male employees, I think it’s safe to say the skies will be looking much friendlier in a well- tailored Westwood.

The new addition of bags for ground staff has also been introduced by the Ethical Fashion Initiative in Nairobi, in collaboration with the International Trade Centre, United Nations. Made using recycled canvas, reused roadside banners, unused leather off-cuts, and recycled brass, produced in the Kibera slum, Nairobi. Which was an equally important factor to the eco-friendly fashion designer.

Original design and sustainability are top of the priority list for both Westwood and Branson in this long term partnership, with many of the items made with polyester yarn made from recycled plastic bottles, and a nano finish to extend the garments life and retain colour. “I am always trying to find fabrics that are more friendly to the environment – working with Virgin Atlantic they managed to research into this and find more eco fabrics,” said Westwood.

One can only imagine the joy of being paid to wear Westwood’s designs, as part of your daily work uniform, as you flit effortlessly between London, New York and Paris. This Autumn, I predict a sudden surge in Virgin Atlantic applications amongst fashionistas.
