We all need a little bit of sunshine in our lives, especially at the end of a cold week in February, so I thought I’d share a lovely little treat with you. To celebrate the launch of their spring/summer 2012 collection, those glamorous gals at What Katie Did have produced their own short film, “South Coast Sweethearts“, which stars the upcoming Marlene range – 50s lingerie with a stunning 20s design influence, in peach and black – plus some new ‘summery’ colours of their existing Deco range. You will also spot the current Fonda range (which I am already a big fan of!), as well as their lovely retro swimwear and sets from the classic continuity ranges Maîtresse and Glamour. It’s an adorable and slightly naughty little retro romp that you simply must watch. Looks like Miss Miranda and Mam’zelle Maz really know how to enjoy themselves on holiday!
And if this wasn’t enough to satisfy your lust for lingerie, What Katie Did are also throwing a launch party for the SS12 collection at their west London boutique on Sunday 4th March. There will be a runway show and burlesque performance at 3pm, but make sure you arrive a bit beforehand so that you don’t miss out on the Hendrick’s cocktails and delicious Vintage Patisserie cakes. If I get there before you, there is a chance their stocks of these refreshments may run dangerously low! I shall be stopping off there with Rubyyy Jones, on our way back from speaking at sex writers conference Eroticon in Bristol, so I do hope to see some of you there. If I wasn’t driving, I’d be flashing my Fonda at you all that day. Now there’s a lovely new euphemism!
