Today I went to visit Victoria Holt at her studio in London. Victoria launched Fred & Ginger at London Fashion Week 2007, before that she was the senior designer at Jenny Packham. Victoria designs luxury lingerie in French silk, satins, chiffons and Chantilly lace. It’s all gorgeous, sexy and slightly naughty with a very girly vintage feel. Her collection of French knickers, teddies, bed jackets with puffy sleeves and 50’s style basques comes in rich raspberry, teal and parrot green. Fred & Ginger is all about detail: the cut of the shorts, the silk covered buttons and lace in just the right places! I like using lingerie in shoots; Fred & Ginger feels like more than just lingerie, maybe because its vintage feel gives it a bit of attitude.
Just in case you need to dress your man – or undress him, Victoria also designs high-end underwear for men that is packaged in discreet black matt boxes!
Fred & Ginger is finished by hand and made in the UK.
