laurabrooks.JPGI love buying underwear because it's just for me, I don't show all and sundry my pants so I can pick whatever colour or style I want. Laura Brooks, a London based designer, makes underwear primarily for the wearer with a tiny bow hidden on the inside and pretty linings. She uses gorgeous fabrics such as luxurious leavers lace, pure silk ribbons, georgette and velvet. Luckily for us she is producing an affordable range of her designs for Topshop, with the same commitment to quality materials. The new range which is being produced in the UK is inspired by French maids and uses white cottons, broderie anglaise, and uniform checks with accent of deep red and green. Each style in the collection has its own name, so from mid-April you can choose from millie, molly, florence, polly and ooh la la…In the meantime you can buy Laura Brooks' main range from from Lady Barbarella.
