I’m so excited about a recent new addition to our collection - Angela Friedman is a New York City based independent luxury lingerie and corset designer.
She is most known for her work at the New York City Ballet, where she ran the ladies’ department of the Costume Shop for several years, working with renowned fashion designers and choreographers to clothe all of the company’s ballerinas. Her work in the delicate world of the Ballet has inspired many of her design details, color palette, and the overall feel of the line. She aims to bring the beauty and grace of that world into her lingerie line and to women all over the world.
Angela’s vintage-inspired designs are distinguished by an acute attention to detail and quality materials. A real “return to handmade luxury” as the brand has been defined by the Lingerie Addict.
The first drop of this stunning collection will be around late July. Not long to go, I can’t wait!
We will be reviewing some of Angela’s designs soon, so watch this space.
Temperature are starting to drop and we are all looking for something nice and cosy to wear. The secret is in the contrast - mix colors and patterns for an elegant, trendy effect.

A new package has arrived to our office this morning and I couldn’t contain my excitement when I realized that it was from one of my favourite lingerie designers, Dottie’s Delights.
This adorable US label creates some seriously glamorous burlesque and pin-up inspired lingerie. A perfect example is this fabulous Frou Frou sheer pink robe, from their latest Bricolage collection. It is just so sheer, so fluffy and so very vintage! I am sure one of these beauties will find its way into my wardrobe soon :)
Wear it over your favourite lingerie set and marabou slippers (coming soon to our store, wink!) to lounge around the house, perfect Hollywood style.
The Dottie’s Delights Frou Frou sheer pink robe is available to purchase at our online boutique now.
To take advantage of this offer, you need to purchase $50 worth of Trasparenze hosiery in one transaction. The gift voucher will be shipped to you with your order and can be redeemed online on any future purchases. One gift voucher per order only.

Great news! We are now working on our very own range of luxury stockings!!
The first will be a mini collection - only one style actually. Utterly glamorous back seam stockings with french heel and a little surprise detail :) Made in Italy and most importantly, in three sizes: small-medium, tall-extra tall and maxi.

Retro style has never been more current! From swinging, vibrant 1960’s to 1950’s elegance and 1920’s opulence, you can have fun changing your look by simply adding the right type of hosiery. Here’s some tips…
BOLD COLOURED TIGHTS
For a 1960s look you can’t go wrong with bold coloured tights.
Choose your favouriteshades of green, yellow, orange and pink to get that wonderful 60s vibe! Ultra thick opaques and wool tights are great too. Wear them with print smock dresses, mini skirts and little shifts for a look that is always eye catching and fun!
Seamed hosiery is so wonderfully decadent and remind us of the 1940s and 50s sophisticated yet flirting style.
I personally love the classic black seam but a red seam on nude or black leg can be incredibly sexy, too.
For the perfect retro look, wear them with pencil skirts and dresses, add a little heel, a touch of rouge and you’ll feel like a real star!
Do you love the sheer frivolity of the 1920s? Embellished or glitter tights are perfect for getting that look – try the Trasparenze Diamante tights which have a scattering of gold or silver glitter over a black leg! Add a drop waist dress and glam the look up with t-bar heels for authentic flapper style. For those passioned about DIY, get armed with glue and a great pair of strong opaque tights and get crazy with sequins and diamantes.
So whatever decade you love and feel inspired by, find the right type of hosiery and let your legs do the talking!
