Postcard from London: Kinky Knickers at Liberty

Please excuse the reflective photo, we were blessed with a very sunny day with clear blue skies in London!

I was in Paris and London briefly last week for a business trip, and during our whirlwind day in London, we visited Liberty. It's an absolutely amazing place—I'll write up a separate post extolling the Liberty experience, but this quickie is for the window display we saw as we left Liberty to head over to Selfridges. 

Kinky Knickers! As seen on TV! NEW COLOURS!!!! It amused me to see how the "as seen on TV endorsement is as strong in the UK as it is in the US. I didn't get a chance to see the product in the store, but according Liberty's website, everything is made in the UK. The styles and the proud "made in the UK" stamp seems to me it's kind of the British version of US' Hanky Panky? 

They're only sold in the UK, and retail guru Mary Portas is the mastermind behind this line. Supporting British manufacturing and retailers, it looks like Kinky Knickers is working hard to keep retailers supplied with an unexpectedly high demand. Pretty awesome! 

British readers, if any of you have seen these or own a pair, let me know what you think!
