Ayten Gasson is drawing inspiration from the colours of British flowers for the Spring Summer 2011 that is being promoted to retailers from this week.
The London-based designer, who specialises in luxurious pure silk lingerie, trimmed with vintage Nottingham lace – all hand-made in the UK – is introducing a collection using colours described as sweet pea cerise, freesia white, peachy rose and black.
“Nottingham lace is renowned for its high quality and beauty with Leavers lace being the most exceptional. Sadly with the demand for this lace falling it is no longer produced in high quantities. This is why I am constantly sourcing vintage lace to create something unique”, Ayten explains.
Embellishments in the new collection are made on each item using gathered frill, made from silk and lace, and outlining the delicate silhouette of flowers such as English Primrose.
New shapes for this season include a padded silk balcony bra, and the new skirted tap pant. Classic styles returning include the Ayten Gasson signature Skirted Knickers, and vintage inspired Teddies.
