The media is awash with the news of offshore investments Panama Gate, resignations of Iceland’s Prime Minister, but something that caught my attention was an article in the guardian on sweat shops in Myanmar.

All this talk of Offshoring got me thinking about Onshoring.  Since 2009 Harlette have been practitioners of Onshoring, beginning with designing & manufacturing in Australia.

This is an example of Australian Design and Manufacturing recently on Catwalk in Caribbean on the island of Curacao as part of International Swim Fashion Week.

10 Best Things to Do in Harlette

Posted in Lingerie, London, Luxury Lingerie, Luxury Underwear, Mens Underwear, Silk, Uncategorized, Underwear, Virgin with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2011 by harlette

Harlette has released never before seen images of Acroyoga poses in luxury lingerie, as part of their 10 Best Things to Do in Harlette campaign. The shoot took place at Virgin Active, and the first image titled RISE ABOVE, was inspired by the recent events in London and the song by Reeve Carney, Rise Above 1 featuring Bono and The Edge.

Harlette have released these images as the start of their AW11 collection, and also made these sets for purchase exclusively available through our facebook page click here to pamper yourself and your partner.

The pieces in RISE ABOVE are also featured in an Lingerie Insight article click here to read the article.

Some of you might be asking Why Acro Yoga and Why Now, this is Harlette’s thoughts on the shoot.

We have been quietly working on some unique shots, and with the recent events with London riots that had an impact on everyone, in the city, including the closure of our stockist Bordello for a couple of days. Harlette has chosen to move around the images to be released as a result of the London Riots as its was clear that timing for release of this image was August 2011.

Harlette’s thoughts on the series of RISE ABOVE images

The need to for women around the world to feel empowered to rise above the problems that we are facing
economically, socially and politically makes this the perfect moment to show how we are grounded and how we offer support throughout our life time to our partners, our lovers, our communities and to our children.

The art of ACRO YOGA as practiced by two amazing specialists that are located at Virgin Active and this practice
gives men and women to chance to find harmony balance and empowerment. This concept of empowerment is embodied throughout the series of images and it is the reason it makes 10 Best Things to do in Harlette.

The shoot features the following Leopard Lovers pieces from the AW11 collection.

Leopard Lovers FEMME Leopardess Lover HOMME Leopard Lover
A French luxury explosion on your skin that looks good and feels good and is flexible to wear Femme featuring Harlette Cami Set with Micro Short Silk from France Les Tissages Perrin, lace from France Solstiss complemented by Harlette Silk Cami Set trademark

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. To read more

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.

All of a Twirl of a Tassel over Twitter

Harlette has been all of a twitter over Twitter this week.  Although clearly a little slow on coming up to speed on this wonderful world of Twitter, Harlette is getting followers every day.

So Twitter for Harlette is Kaizen (Japanese for small continuous improvement)

The exciting thing is in the same week a new magazine has surprisingly got its first subscriber via Twitter.  The world’s first, global Burlesque Magazine has just launched and the first subscriber was ‘10 Downing Street’ !

Incidentally 10 Downing Street’  was Harlette’s first follower on Twitter so already we have lots in common. Time to twirl those tassels ladies and gentlemen. whooo hoooo

The Art of Selling Lingerie

Posted in Art, Elite Traveller, Fashion, Haute Couture, Lace, Lifestyle, Luxury Lingerie, Private Jet, Retail Sales, Saudi Arabia, Silk with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2009 by harlette


This week has been an interesting week, a pink dolphin has appeared out of no where,  and the struggle facing Saudi women in the sales of lingerie products really got my attention.

The BBC article described the Lingerie Trade being in a Twist

A wonderful woman by the name Reem Asaad has begun campaigning for women to have the right to sell lingerie. In Saudi Arabia, it is the current practice that men sell intimate apparel to women.

Now this topic was one always hot to debate at Selfridges as men and women both work on the floor in the Lingerie department. Some customers welcome this, some do not, but one area that men are not allowed to work are in the fitting of the garments and the change rooms.

I am passionate about the art of lingerie selling and have been in touch with Reem to offer any assistance in this area, Reem has replied and I will update you on any developments.

I have a quick explanation of the art of selling lingerie on the 3 keys to selling lingerie on you tube

Before you ask here is the link for the pink dolphin, I totally want one, the ultimate mermaid accessory.
