I’m normally wont to hate the cliche lingerie that raises its ugly head whenever there’s a celebration to be had. You know the kind. They’re all of the horny Halloween and “oh, hasn’t Mrs. Clause been a naughty girl this year” variety. Today will prove the exception to that avoidance rule, however.

As our American readers today sit down to celebrate Thanksgiving, Swiss retailer Manor have released their 2011 Christmas lingerie look book. Naturally the pairing of Christmas and lingerie means that it’s a look book that leads with Saint Nicholas themed nice-little-nothings. Thankfully it has more breadth to it than cliche Christmas iconography.

Which is precisely why its worth featuring. Take away the few Christmas themed photos and it’s a look book-cum-catalogue that serves as a reminder that Christmas is just around the corner. Precisely a month away, in fact. And, frankly, is there a better reminder that I need to get on with my Christmas gift buying than a lingerie clad Marloes Horst?

I suspect not.
