New: Lonely Lingerie's "Seon"

Always a highlight of most girls' spending calendar, Lonely Hearts released another Lonely Lingerie collection last week. As mentioned previously, I'm a huge fan of the range and I'm not even exaggerating when I say this is the only under wear I buy - because soft, sexy and vintage-inspired is all I want in life from my lingerie. Not to mention it's all too good to keep totally hidden under clothes - making it the perfect partner for flimsy slip dresses and sheer knits.

The latest range features updates on their super-popular Cyd style, some beautiful front-closure longlines and some racy new red numbers. I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Flora set - and I splurged on the pink lacy Cyd set on payday. Both feature their recently introduced underwire (a godsend since my boobs decided to grow another cup size last year, TMI sorry) but still with the soft cups you know and love.

Accompanying the new range is yet another beautiful, softly lit and refreshingly real lookbook - which has come to be their trademark and point of difference in an over-saturated underwear market (not that they have any real competition.) This time round Seon takes centre stage, shot by Rene Vaile and styled by Zara Mirkin.

More from the lookbook after the jump.

The Row Fall 14, perfect as usual.

The perfection in the simplicity and the epitome luxury - particularly the finest cashmere that you'll never see. More accessible and imitable of course is that ethos, silhouette and palette. And of course the most sensible of footwear. Where everyone else is showing excess and hyper-speed trends, The Row is a breath of fresh air every season - like the ultimate reset button, just when you most need one. X

Zara always gets it so right.

Because really (although nothing looks better than when surrounded by ferns and houseplants) it's the best elements from Celine, Prada and Marc Jacobs at a price that's actually affordable. Not reinventing the wheel, but still giving you what you need and want from the unattainable Spring runways. Nostalgic tropicana prints, sportswear elements and cropped silhouettes. Everything you need right now for the last of Summer to live out your resortwear fantasies. Now it's just a matter of getting some of it to New Zealand...
