beautiful vintage inspired underwear by hopeless lingerie

Pin It
I can't begin to tell you just how pleased I was upon discovering this underwear - Divine!! It's sexy in a subtle kick ass way. I love how the design is soft and feminine while still looking edgy. The pieces have a definite vintage 'feel' going on yet are thoroughly modern in cut, material and design. Gorgeous underwear to slip underneath will leaving you feeling secretly glamorous with extra attitude.

In less than three years of existence,  hopeless lingerie  based in Melbourne, Australia has managed to set a new standard in creativity and style. Taking inspiration from such diverse places as B-grade horror films (Day of the Triffids Revenge of the Nerds). Architecture and modern art, designer Gabrielle Adamidis with the help of her sister Dominique have established a strong following through innovative designs. Combining vintage aesthetics with modern comfort and convenience, Hopeless create pieces that aim to make women feel sexy and beautiful. Hopeless Lingerie can be worn on summer nights or just for special occasions, and it will take just one viewing for you to fall hopelessly in love.

hopeless ship to the Uk.... lucky for us I say. I cant wait to own a piece all handmade in lux materials like silk, modal jersey & bamboo. There's also a bridal collection which is a world away from the 'usual saccharine' but still keeps it sweet.

See below images from current collections and shots from behind the scenes. As you can see I found it difficult to narrow down my choice of images and spent lots of hours gazing at the beautiful shots. I dont know Gabrielle personally but you manage to gain an insight into just what makes this girl tick, her inspirations and her ideals. She seems like an interesting person to have around and I love her aesthetics. I found the shoots inspiring, loved the grainy black and white shots and all the detail in the workshop/material shots.
