I first made my acquaintance with UK-based brand Edge o’ Beyond back in August, when I first saw their debut collection & this collection at the Curve NY tradeshow. I was immediately distracted by the epically adorable set above, which I Instagrammed and became one of my most liked Instagrams ever! Somehow I never got around to covering the brand properly on the blog, but I’m glad that I’ve let them mature a season before introducing them to you. Best of all, all of this lingerie is for sale right now!
The adorable appliquéed fairies might be the most obviously remarkable piece in the Spring/Summer 2015 collection, but once you get past its charms, there are many other things to admire. One unique feature of Edge o’Beyond lingerie is the use of tiny golden rings that allow for detachable jewelry pieces to ornament all of the various pieces in the collection.
Although when I first heard about the lingerie-as-jewelry (or jewelry-as-lingerie?) concept, I found it somewhat gimmicky. I know I like lingerie, and I wasn’t really sure I needed it to be anything else. Once I became further acquainted with the brand, however, I began to see that it was indeed beautiful enough not to need the added gold chains– which ended making me appreciate the fact that they could enhance the design, rather than make up for some sort of lack in creativity or quality, which was my fear.
The magic of this lingerie is hard to capture in photographs alone. The beauty and details of the materials (particularly the lace) are what make this lingerie worth giving a second glance.
The relatively simple shape of this black soft bra makes the gold chain detail really stand out and is an effective argument for why this is a lingerie accessory worth having. I also really like that this set is very understated, but still holds its own along with some pieces with flashier, more expensive and intricate materials.
I’m very pleased that Edge o’ Beyond decided to include a high-waisted knicker in their collection, as I think it offers a particularly pretty silhouette– especially when you see how cheeky they made the back!
I loved this look book photo because it shows off the stunning red lace that Edge of Beyond uses most clearly. I love the tattoo-like contrast it makes on the skin– it’s my favorite things about how lace is used in lingerie!
This is not the entire Edge o’ Beyond collection, but I hope this gives you a taste of what they are up to. I think that this is a brand with a lot of potential, as well as plenty of gorgeous luxury products to lust over. I hope I’ll get to try some of these myself at some point to tell you more!
