As if we weren’t already jealous enough of Julia Restoin-Roitfeld! The model/daughter of ex-French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld designed a line of lingerie for the luxe brand Kiki de Montparnasse. And she is modeling it herself, natch! We’d be seeing green if we weren’t so taken by these vintage-inspired black and white snaps.
I will never be able to afford Kiki de Montparnasse lingerie … but at least looking is free. [Fashionista]
Kiki de Montparnasse is one of our favorite retailers of high-class sex toys and lingerie. However, we mainly go to the brand for bedroom inspiration because we can’t quite bring ourselves to put down $225 for a bra or $2,400 for pearl handcuffs. (But fantasizing is free, right?) We were quite excited to learn, however, that Kiki de Montparnasse has an in-store event series this fall, which sounds delightfully dirty. On September 1, “Partner Play” includes a lecture on sensual techniques with expert Domina K and a private consultation. (As well as a champagne reception and “aphrodisiacs”—no further details on what those are, exactly.) Other classes cover bedroom games, self-pleasure, and a men-only seminar on seduction. Each two-hour session is $65, which, in comparison to $150 corset panties, is a small amount to pay for priceless knowledge. If you’re in NYC this fall, check them out! [KikiDM.com] Keep reading »
Seeing these Kiki de Montparnasse pearl bedroom restraints instantly reminded us of Samantha’s pearl thong in “Sex and the City”—cute, sure, but damn impractical. It would be great to sit in the privileged lap of luxury, but this item has us scratching our heads. For starters, $2,400 seems like quite a high price for something so precious that you’d be getting so close to your love juices.
While you can wear these strands as full body jewelry, the product description says that you can also “Pull strand through metal loops to create restraint cuffs.” Doesn’t that just seem like a recipe for disaster if things got a bit rough? A too-sharp tug, and you’d have balls flying through the air. Which, for all we know, could be par for the course in your sexual routine. [KikiDM.com] Keep reading »
Excluding the insane $225 price tag, we think this wifebeater with garter clips is pretty fantastic. It’s the perfect mix of something to wear in the bedroom that’s sexy, but also kind of tough. But then again, there must be a way to DIY this with a Hanes tank-top and some clips you can buy at a fabric store. [ShopBop.com] Keep reading »
There’s a reason why it’s called “French” kissing. The following will have you speaking in tongues (literally) in no time.
5. Want to faire l’amour in style? The French Lesson Panty Set from Kiki de Montparnasse will teach your lover how to whisper sweet (naughty) nothings into your ear. Inscribed on the back of each pair of underwear, you’ll find French translations of sexy acts like “F**k me” (“Baise moi”). [Set of five, $295] Keep reading »
