7 Cities in 7 Days

Posted in Academic Research, London, Switzerland, Telecommunications, Uncategorized, United Kingdom, Virgin, Wearables with tags , , , , , on November 18, 2016 by harlette



A few weeks ago  I woke up to a rainy Lake Geneva. Amazing experience to have the opportunity to observe a United Nations International Telecommunications Union meeting on one of my favourite topics space.

As well as designing swimwear and lingerie have commenced a PhD and designing a new out of this world project combining fashion & technology that is a little secret squirrel more soon.

Travelling from a university in London to a university in Manchester at the other side of the country and back to London all in the same day was an awfully big adventure.

You can see the seven cities in seven days photo’s on Harlette Swimwear new flickr site and you will also spot beaches in Australia like Shelly Beach, a personal favourite and the spectacular Surfers Paradise with the symphony of high rises.

Where, when I touched down in LAX, discovered I left my voice on a virgin train. Sunrise in London Hyde Park with swans & squirrels to finish the day watching  the sunset over Santa Monica beach before meeting with the director of my 4K TV project IT Girl Lingerie to discuss the project, story and new things in Geneva & UK.

Executive Producers that are interested in assisting this project are most welcome to reach out.


Final touch down in Sydney to start new swimwear collection and this new one is going to be really fun to frolic in and on. Of course what a shock was Leonard Cohen, I heard his new song Leaving the Table as I was in a good old trusted black cab outside Buckingham Palace on the way to the university. With the benefit of hindsight its a little prophetic this song.

I was listening to his new album You Want it Darker the whole week, while glued to Bloomberg for US Election updates & the markets reaction and then suddenly the news that he passed away, on remembrance day at 82 after he saw the new President elect Donald Trump come to power. The night before I saw the Opera House covered in poppies and the video is available at Harlette Swimwear new flickr site

Donald Trump no doubt he is 100% #teambikini & excited that Red is the colour of 2017. Having worked with Miss Universes in our shoots & catwalks Harlette Swimwear are excited at seeing Donald work to make America great again.

Exciting times ahead for the whole world and infinitely more exciting with a bikini or two.








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
velvet bra straps

Many thanks to artisanship of Claudine Lafont & Donald Shakes and @VirginActiveOZ without their passion and pursuit of perfection, this amazing AcroYoga shoot would not have been possible.
