New Eco-Friendly Nightwear Brand Celebrates the Goddess within Every Woman

Rusalka Lingerie introduces a new collection of luxurious natural lingerie with comfort in mind and elegance at heart.

Rusalka Lingerie launches a new brand of elegant eco-friendly lingerie and loungewear. Providing luxury designs made from the highest quality of silk and eco-friendly bamboo, Rusalka transforms the way women dress at home, blending elegance with comfort. Begin and end your day with a soft, air-light and warm touch of the finest silk to celebrate the goddess within.

Our eco-friendly materials make women not only look, but also feel good in their homes. Our new brand is dedicated to looking your best without sacrificing comfort,” says Elena Burlando, Founder and Designer for Rusalka Lingerie.

The new collection is inspired by Mihail Bulgakov’s novel “Master and Margarita”, which portrays an unconditional love story. To show her affection to the Master, Margarita goes to the extremes and even hosts a devil’s ball. The dramatic tendency of this intense love story is transferred to the designs using a contrasting color palette and dramatic neckline on the slips and camisoles.

Rusalka was created in 2012 and means “mermaid” in Russian. Rusalka underlines the feminine essence and embraces the transformation from a girl to a woman, induced by a balance between comfort and elegance.

ESCAPE OF THE NIGHTINGALE MENG S/S17

ILS_web_Mcpete Sez
Introducing the MENG S/S 17 women’s loungewear collection. Drawing on the folk stories of China and Europe, we celebrate personal freedom and the natural world through a collection of intricately printed silk pajamas, kimonos, robes and kaftans. Each is embellished with our signature handdrawn artwork and dazzling colour palette in a series of luxurious, supremely comfortable designs.

INSPIRATION
The Eastern princess, coveted for her beauty in the gilded cage of the Emperor’s palace, breaks the bounds of ritual to join with the sky, the air and nature. Lanterns, throne and portraits are replaced with dance, movement and play.
The story is reflected through a contrast of silhouettes, prints and hues that move between the formal and free, as mix and match pieces create a sense of personal expression.

PRINTS
Our original hand-drawn artworks bloom into life as prints and jacquard weaves. Discover cherry blossoms, fantastical song birds, polka dots and psychedelic chrysanthemums – some in neat repeats, others wild and gloriously free.

FABRICS & COLOURS
Cloths include silk jacquard, smooth silk satin and sheer georgette. A reflective and introspective palette contrasts with softly feminine hues and bright dream colours. Deep burgundy and teal, cool cream, silver grey and seafoam, are accented with terracotta red, rose and a myriad of blues.

SHAPES
Pyjamas, kimonos, long and short robes and kaftans are framed with contrast colour and print edgings and linings.

The Addict Expose: Lingerie Wishlist: Dear Bowie Maxi Robe

ILS_web_Mcpete Sez

              BY CORA HARRINGTON

As my thoughts drift to the first summer spent in my new home, I can’t but feel excited at the thought of updating my predominately gray and black wardrobe with brighter, more climate-appropriate pieces. After years of carrying a black hoodie “just in case” and avoiding silk lest it be marred by rain showers, I am luxuriating in the thought of a dresser full of camisoles, slip dresses, and other dainty delights. It’s the perfect excuse for a personal style transformation. While I don’t plan to completely give up my fleeces and sweatshirts (I still travel to New York in the winter, after all), I also want a wardrobe that feels a bit more SoCal.

Lingerie Wishlist features (formerly “Lingerie Lust Objects“) are basically my dream closet in blog form. I’ll never be able to buy most of the pieces I talk about (especially since I’m trying, valiantly, to stick to my lingerie challenge), but I share them here in the hopes maybe one of you will see that perfect piece and fall in love. I also share them here because I believe beautiful, interesting lingerie deserves to be noticed. Most of my blogging regrets center around not covering things I loved in the past. The lingerie world is quite ephemeral in some ways; there are countless brands and styles I wish someone had kept a record of, but it’s too late now.

At any rate, as I highlighted in this season’s lingerie trend reports, loungewear is on the way back in. This ties into the larger fashion trend of casualness or athleisure. Customers are demanding more transitional pieces, garments that work equally well as innerwear or outerwear, and brands are stepping up with a range of chic options. One of my favorite interpretations of this trend is Dear Bowie’s Naomi Maxi Robe.

There are two variations to this maxi robe, an ocean blue palm print and a resort-ready blush floral, and even after looking at them for the better part of a day, I still can’t decide which I like more (though right this minute, I’m leaning towards the blue). While the Dear Bowie Naomi maxi robe is, as the name suggests, a robe, it feels more like a dress. There are definite strains of a classic wrap style in the tradition of Diane Von Furstenberg here. While fantasy me would love to wear this while walking along a white sand beach, real world me would likely layer a slip underneath and wear it as a work dress (because amortization and also perfect lingerie blogger work attire).

When I was younger, I was more into complicated pieces, like girdles and garter belts and corsets. And while I’ll always love a beautiful waist cincher, what I adore about this maxi robe is how effortless it is (or at least, how it gives the illusion of effortlessness). There’s a laid back elegance here, a kind of offhand glamour that’s both casual and cultivated. When I think of lifestyle lingerie, I think of pieces like this; it’s an excellent extension of Dear Bowie’s voice and style.

The Dear Bowie Naomi Maxi Robe retails for $380 USD, and the label’s size range runs from XS-L. While the official size chart tops out at US 8, I’d say the fit and cut of their garments is generous enough to accommodate at least 3-4 sizes beyond that (both Holly and Lingerie Detective had reviewed Dear Bowie, and they’re technically sized out). As a brief aside, it would be stellar if Dear Bowie updated their size chart to reflect this information; there is a dearth of even vaguely plus-sized luxury lingerie options on the market nowadays; how many people have taken a look at their size chart and left the site?

Like most Dear Bowie’s garments, especially in recent collections, both robes are made of 100% silk (silk georgette and silk charmeuse) and are dry clean only. Dear Bowie ships internationally, and shipping within Canada and to the US is free.

Now that I’m browsing, I’m also really digging the Palm Silk Slip Dress. What a perfect print for this brand. I wish it’d been available when I was on my honeymoon.

Do you have any thoughts about Dear Bowie, the uptrending of loungewear, or silk lingerie? One of my goals for this year is be better about responding to everyone in the comments, and I’d love to hear from you.
