Designer Showcase: Petiole

The name reminds me of a cross between the words "petticoat" and "camisole", but the designs of this collection are so sleek, simple and delicate. Everything is made in NYC, and made of 100% silk and fine mesh. This is another collection that has pieces to celebrate the small-chested ladies, and I'm excited to see these pieces in person! Some of my favorites:

Designer Showcase: Marlies Dekkers

Dutch designer Marlies Dekkers is loved by celebs like Lady Gaga, Dita von Teese, Fergie, Christina Aguilera (among many, many others) and it's easy to see why. She designs an astounding seven collections a year, yet they're all classic shapes and styles—with a sexy twist that's easy to show off under low-cut and/or sheer tops and dresses!

And for ladies who like to dress up the men in their life, there's a line for the guys too!

Designer Showcase: Maison Close

A contemporary take on S&M basics, Maison Close offers six different collections that spark a darker side of your imagination. I suppose they can be as naughty or as nice as you like, but I'll keep this no-frills brand on the naughty list.  These pieces are so fantastic and while some are definitely candidates for everyday wear, I'd say save 'em for a special occasion. Some of my favorites:

Collection Cabaret Royal Body String Thong Body (L), Cabaret Royal Bra and Panty (R)

Collection Villa Bel-Ami Body (L), Collection Villa Waist-Cincher Thong & Corset Bra (R)

Collection Salon Bourbon Buster Bra (L), Collection Villa Caprice Panty & Push-up Bra (R)

Designer Showcase: La Fee Verte

Loved these four sets from La Fee Verte's Fall/Winter 2010 collection. Each one has little details to give it that extra special something, whether it's the material, sheerness, or ruching, to make it super-sexy. Which one is your favorite?

Designer Showcase: VPL

Barney's and Creatures of Comfort are both carrying some really fun pieces from VPL this fall/winter and these were some of my favorites:

Stripe B Bra & Undi

Jewel Dispersion Bra (also comes in purple/black!)

Sequins Bandage Bra / Overlay Bra

I think the Sequin Bandage Bra would be so fun for the holidays under a black dress that lets the bra peek out just a tad. You would just have to make sure that the sequins wouldn't snag the fabric, but it would be such a cute little surprise to wear under something simple!
