London based lingerie designer Ayten Gasson continues to use silk and the finest vintage laces to create her truly vintage-inspired line of intimates — and the Spring/Summer 2011 collection continues the tradition quite dreamily.
While all the designs are lovely, I am completely smitten with those most vintage in color…
The Phoebe collection, teddy, bra and panty, are in antique pink silk with delicate vintage creme Nottingham lace and a delicate contrasting ribbon bows in rose.
The Daphne collection, camisole, bra and panty, are of a soft celadon green silk trimmed in peach lace and satin ribbons. The lace is from one of the last remaining lace makers in Nottingham, Roger Watson, who supplied lace for the royal wedding dresses of both Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson.
