We discovered Lola Haze a few seasons ago at Curve, and the line blew us away with its artsy, contemporary approach to lingerie design. We weren’t the only ones impressed by designer Laura Mehlinger’s unique vision, as Victoria’s Secret snatched up a few styles for its Designer Series. For fall, Mehlinger found inspiration in her travels through Thailand and Laos – a region rich in tradition and textile heritage. Entitled Golden Rings, the collection honors the exquisite ornamentation of the countries’ sacred spaces with subtle touches: a golden loop on a strap, a gilded buckle detail, a foiled mesh overlay. The thoughtful details add a keepsake quality to the brand’s modern blouson bodysuits, pieced slips and draped chemises. The compelling inspiration combined with the stream-of-consciousness design illuminate Mehlinger’s poetic sensibility at its best.
