Rebecca Ansah London is a British lingerie and bodywear brand that launched in 2011, and the AW13 collection is a striking blend of ballet influences and bondage elements.
Called Lace and Ballet, the collection combines soft detailing and hard edges, with harnesses trimmed with eyelash lace and sheer bodies studded with Swarovski crystals.
The collection is inspired by ballet, with some designs having the feel of performance showpieces, and the mix of harnesses, bodies, bras and thongs are all designed to work together. There are also styles that could be worn as outerwear if you’re feeling bold.
It’s a provocative and exciting collection that will appeal to fans of more directional lingerie. One of our favourite pieces is the sheer Seraphina bodysuit (pictured, £104) that is covered in Swarovski crystals. The low back is super sexy and the soft feminine colour is counter balanced by the black trim.
Each piece in the collection is handmade to order in the UK, but the prices are still very reasonable, starting at £34 for a bra and going up to £120 for the Emma bodysuit.
