Undies Mondays: DKNY Intimates Spring / Summer 2012
If the lingerie choices in previous Undies Mondays installments has been a bit too fussy for your tastes, this week we may just have the perfect brand for you.
DKNY Intimates' Spring / Summer 2012 collection is all about simplicity. There's no fussy lace or VPL here, instead attention is paid to quality and fit rather than embellishment, with super-simple pieces that gently shape and streamline the figure for the perfect fit. Above is the Signature Lace set (bra £34 and knickers £16), a good example of what the brand has to offer; simple, chic and likely to become a frequently-worn set very quickly!
But perhaps most exciting is the Fusion range, which is DKNY Intimates' take on shapewear. Instead of squeezing everything tightly like heavier alternatives, hidden compression panels in these sleek garments gently shape without digging in, and flat seams ensure a smooth finish. They're almost like Summer thermals; everything in the range is made from moisture wicking microfibre to keep you cool and dry, and can be layered as outwear as well as worn as undies.
Prices for the Fusion range start at £34 for the boyleg briefs, up to £52 for the all-in-one 'bodybriefer'.
