I’ve always been a fan of Bijules NYC since her iconic 1-finger bar ring came onto the scene. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her and following her collections through the years and she always manages to add an element of surprise. Her newest collection is no different, in fact, it gets the gold star for the most amazing thing I saw in Vegas (and we saw a lot!).
For Fall ’09, Bijules introduces “Arsenic and Old Lace,” a jewelry/lingerie capsule collection that embodies the quintessential Bijules femme in black lace and delicate golden chains. The collection is sold as a set consisting of a bra, high-waisted panties, garter and garter belt. Many of the pieces can be worn several ways and have a “Light Fancy” chain link – a link that Bijules resurrected from men’s pocket watches from the 1920s. The bra can be worn as a halter with gold linked underwire or as a bandeau with gold linked straps over the shoulders. The high waisted panties feature golden linked “suspenders” (so insane!) and the garter belt has asymmetrial hook and eyes and can be worn at the hip or the waist. The garter, with dangling gold chains, can be worn on the thigh, on the neck as a choker or as a headband. Bijules wants you to get the most out of the set so she encourages you to “overwear your underwear and express what is intimate as something formal and defiant.”
The collection has a very 1920s gangster moll look that I love and is the sexiest set of lingerie I’ve seen. “Arsenic and Old Lace” is limited to a series of 15 and retails for over $1000. Each set is numbered, comes with a certificate of authenticity, and comes in a box wrapped with a pair of thigh-high stockings. For those of us who don’t have that kind of lingerie budget, Bijules has masquerade mask that can be worn as a mask or a headband. Check out the rest of the “Arsenic and Old Lace” collection after the jump, as well as, other goodies like the custom snake nail ring that Santogold wore on MTV.
