Vintage inspired lingerie is always a treat. It brings us back to a time of glamour and prestige. With the Hollywood idols in our heads we pretend to be the starlets of the 40s and 50s as we don intimates that hug our curves and instill in us a unique passion. That is why when we received images of What Katie Did‘s SS13 collection we couldn’t help but fawn over the high waisted briefs and bullet bras.
Started in 1999 by Katie Thomas, What Katie Did has grown to become one of the world’s largest providers of faux vintage lingerie. Most of the brand’s designs are based on existing vintage patterns adapted to suit the modern woman.
To wear pieces from What Katie Did is to announce full confidence in your femininity. Each collection created is for the saucy siren in us all begging to come out and play.
For SS13, the brand unveils their existing Marlene range in a new shade of peach & red. Marlene was inspired by Marlene Dietrich, the ultimate femme fatale, and features sheer peach organza teamed with red satin. The Art Deco motifs on its girdle and suspender belt complement What Katie Did’s trademark bullet bra and high waisted knickers splendidly. This season, the brand also introduces a new choice of tanga knickers alongside with the classic high waisted briefs.
In addition to the Marlene range, What Katie Did has released a range entitled ‘Coco’ to showcase the brands’s new patterns and fabrics. The high waisted knickers (a new shape to WKD) come in chocolate stretch satin with peach contrast stitching while the bra features cathedral boning and spiral stitching. The set also comprises a 4-strap suspender belt in chocolate with peach stitching.
To complement the Coco range, the brand has also released their classic Hollywood camiknickers and satin robe in cream with chocolate piping.
Known not only for their exquisite lingerie, What Katie Did has also updated their swimwear range, featuring high waisted briefs with adorable cut-out bow details on the hips.
