Inspiration: Orchids

The official Pantone color of 2014 is Radiant Orchid, and it’s a beautiful shade. However, we’re inspired by every color of orchid, not just the purple ones! We found some great pieces in these shades that would add extra elegance and flair to any wardrobe.

We love the shape of this white orchid's petals.  The Sugar & Spice chemise from Christine Lingerie has a similar pattern in its panels, giving it a graceful and delicate look.
If you want something a little more risque, try Angela Friedman's Dentelle Panty. It has the same delicacy and light coloring that the orchid inspires, but with cheeky sheer detailing.

The Vuylstekeara Cambria orchid is a beautiful deep red, with flecs and accents of white. We think its color and pattern are suggestive of this Carine Gilson set, and of this La Perla bra. These color combinations would bring a subtle elegance and drama to any lingerie collection.

One of my favorite things about orchids is the variety. The Dracula orchid isn't a shape and color that you see very often, but I love it!  If you're inspired by its dark color and sleek shape, you might like Angela Friedman's Jaqueline Slip or the Bricolage lace bra by Dottie's Delights.

Are you feeling inspired by any flora this summer? Let us know in the comments below!
