There’s plenty new at Lascivious. There’s the first ever men’s piece (briefs with a cheeky and none-too-subtle ‘Blow Me’ print inside the waist band); a collaboration with hosiery geniuses Bebaroque (resulting in embellished jet hematite crystal hold-ups); a jewellery collaboration with designer Carol Wiseman (and by jewellery we mean gags and harnesses and cuffs); not to mention a capsule loungewear collection entitled ‘Jeannie’ (slave yet master, and ultimately filled with sex-appeal).
If that wasn’t enough of a leap forwards for the lingerie brand there’s always the autumn / winter 2013 collection, which – as with all their collections – is lascivious in both name and nature. This time the designs were inspired by the natural beauty of Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, drawing on everything from the mythology of the dragon to the textures and colours found in the boat-filled exotic locale.
And yet the collection’s campaign doesn’t take the brand to Vietnam, nor does it play to the soft silk and ruched tulle that the Oriental theme inspired. Instead the creative team flew to Poland to shoot an erotically charged story of dark fantasies, with us – the viewers – as willing voyeurs.
Photographer Szymon Brodziak was behind the lens on the sensual and cinematic campaign shoot. You can indulge in the full Lascivious (lascivious.co.uk) autumn / winter 2013 campaign at the gallery.
