Men Prefer Black Lingerie

According to a recent UK poll picked up by the Daily Star and Telegraph over  50%  of  men prefer Black Lingerie..

Thank Goodness for that as the video for Harlette Luxury Lingerie on the runway in Paris just arrived and the ladies are all in Black…

Its been a hectic pace in Paris for the launch of the collection, London for meetings and the filming by Maverick Production for a show by the BBC on the behind the scenes of getting a product into a department store.

Then back to Paris in the Snow for Premiere Vision, the theme is Cheeky Opulence for 2010, bad boy meets ladies in opulent materials

So more about the actual survey by laundrycare expert, Dr Beckmann, the findings has seen the Red underwear out, and black underwear in, changing long held myths that women have held dearly to especially around valentines day.

Red has often been held to be the sexiest lingerie colour although when Harlette conducted their own research red was prefered by women and men found that it represented danger. According to the Telegraph Red is typically worn by women – the one women wear when they are feeling “flirty”, despite the fact it barely flatters the typical ‘pale English rose’ complexion.

But this is no longer true, according to the average British male. Once believed to be a favourite for Valentine’s Day boudoir gifts, racy, red lingerie, is now considered the biggest bedroom turn-off by British chaps, according to Dr Beckmann’s study.

More than 50% of the men questioned put red at the top of their least favourite list, with a further 18% giving the thumbs-down to pink, and 11% saying ‘No’ to flesh-tones.

Body Magazine US also featured pictures of the Harlette Luxury Lingerie collection shown on the runway in Paris

The ladies from the Knicker Blog, also covered the Paris Lingerie show and included a great piece on Harlette Luxury Lingerie, much to our suprise.

Special note of condolence to Lee Alexander McQueen’s family at this time. When true talent is lost one can only spend a moment in silence & reflect on all the wonderous moments of joy that has been created & shared with the world. Fashion never Dies, it just gets re interpreted, recycled and re inpired. We were all fortunate to see his talent flourish and make many people in the world happy for the moments they shared with his creations.

Cannizaro House Wimbledon Fashion Week

Midas Touch

What a week Jeddah to London, from Seven Star Hotels with 12 meter crystal chandelier’s and Abaya’s to Cannizaro House and Harlette House Coat’s.


Midas Touch was a hit and received much applause from Wimbledon Fashion Week. Harlette has been generating interest from various different fashionista’s from London. As soon as we touched into London, we received a call from Channel 4 production company Maverick to see if we wanted to attend a pilot filming on Friday for a show to do with the Liberty Store.


Due to Wimbledon Fashion Week commitments we were unable to attend the filming but the good news is if the pilot is a success in October they will be filming the Liberty store designer open day and Harlette have been invited. So we will keep you posted.


Meanwhile back in Jeddah the Qasr Al Sharq – a member of The Waldorf=Astoria Collection with 12 meter long Swarovski chandelier, which graces the main staircase, with 600,000 crystals chained together, gilded in 24 carat gold and sparkling with 260 lights is still taking the attention of Harlette.


Such a spectacular finishings its is recommended as a must stay hotel as it has a seven star rating and has views of the Red Sea.  Saudi Arabia is a must see destination, the place is like no other, and on relection it is just as mysterious  after leaving it than before you arrive.

A Taste of Jeddah and a new £288m Yacht for Roman Abramovich

Posted in Dubai, Elite Traveller, Fashion, Harlette, Haute Couture, Lace, Lifestyle, lingerie fittings, London, Louis Vuitton, Luxury Lingerie, Private Jet, Saudi Arabia, Silk, Super Yatchs, Uncategorized, Wimbledon Fashion Week with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2009 by harlette


So a taste of  Jeddah, my abaya was delivered the first day with a sim card to get me up and running enroute to an appointment at a hair salon with a swimming pool in it just to look at. Saudi Arabia is as mysterious as one imagines, it has layers and it has lots of love and affection.

People are amazingly kind, considerate and genuinely happy to help. I have a chauffeur that supposedly speaks German, English and Arabic.. So far I think English is his third language so there is lots of interesting adventures that Asraf has been taking me on, infact, he likes to go walk about in the middle of driving to stop and ask questions, leaving me in the car on the side of the road.

Asraf always returns eager to go another 1km before asking again fun and games fun and games… Our last little adventure after the hair salon, was to visit the Louis Vuitton store in Jeddah, unfortunately my timing was off and the store was closing for prayer time.

Shopping here is all about timing, as stores close a couple of times a day for prayer time, the interesting thing is if they are women only stores they can remain open, so that is why the ladies at La Perla on Thalia st, do so well. Yesterday I visited the ladies that I am currently training at their store.

I discovered lingerie Saudi style, and it fun and it free, things are slowly changing in Saudi Arabia and that is great to see. Saudi Arabia made important commitments on women’s rights, on ending the juvenile death penalty and on other human rights issues during its review by the UN Human Rights Council on June 10, 2009 in Geneva.

On an interesting note Roman Abramovich is sending strong signal to the world that the recession is over. He has just purchased a military style super yacht, in what people first described as gun metal grey.. As you can see from the picture it is white. This new military style trend is increasing and costing €340m (£288m), it has many original features, including a German-built ­missile defence system – useful in the event of attack and is leading the trend in anti paparazzi technology.


The Eclipse set sail from Hamburg’s Blohm + Voss shipyard last week, and is due to be delivered to Abramovich next year, after the finishing touches have been applied. Nearly 170 metres long, it is bigger than Abramovich’s other three mega-yachts – and is 11 metres longer than the world’s previous biggest yacht, which belongs to Sheikh Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai.


Wimbledon Fashion week is just under a week away and a little sneak peak of Angelic Alexandria is just how I will end this week. Miss Sonia Lipski is modelling this amazing piece, with black silk finishes on a highly  beaded ornamented black lace on white mesh. Its one of the show pieces for the Harlette Housecoat collection.


For those of you at Wimbledon next week please come and see the collection. Press opportunities are 1pm to 3pm 25th and all day 26th June.
