Smoke: A Short Film

Earlier this year, a famous production team in Hollywood approached Lucile, much to our excitement, we were told our luxury lingerie and nightwear had been selected to be included in a special project they were filming. This top-secret film was to be entered into international film festivals, including the glamourous Cannes and super cool, Berlin.

Our samples were carefully wrapped, and delivered to Los Angeles to begin filming, and we eagerly waited the outcome…

With the release of the film imminent, we are pleased to announce the short film – “Smoke.” Starring the beautiful and talented, Izumi Bogen alongside the handsome Chris Tardio, who's previously starred in Analyse That and In The Mix – a dark tale of a writer, typing the tale of the death of her husband, blurring the lines between what is fiction and what is reality, it is left with the audience to guess.

The gorgeous Izumi is wearing a number of pieces across our collections, including the Rue De Penthievre Plunge Bra, Knicker and Suspender Belt, our much loved Georgette gown and our stunning Odalisque collection.

Here are a few stills of this much-anticipated release; we can’t for you to see the full feature.

A Lucile History

The history of Lingerie is truly feminine and liberating, of which we can take for granted now. Lucile’s heritage travels as far back as the early 1900’s, Lady Duff Gordon crafted her revolutionary designs into a world famous couture brand with boutiques in New York, Paris, Chicago and the flagship “Masion Lucile” in Hanover Square, London.

Known especially for her scandalous lingerie, Lady Duff Gordon was one of the first to design unrestrictive undergarments, freeing women of binding corsets and wired underskirts. Royalty, nobility and film starts such as the Queen of Spain, Lily Elsie and the Duchess of Warwick flocked to her stores to visit her famous “Rose Rooms,” to choose lace, silk and ribbon adorned creations along with exotic perfumes and gifts.

An “It Girl,” of the Belle Epoque era, her designs challenged and changed not only the fashion industry, but also how women looked and felt about themselves. She loved and appreciated the female form, and understood how to drape beautiful fabrics to create sumptuously feminine silhouettes. She spent hours, even days with her exclusive clientele before designing a “personality dress,” which reflected the woman who wore it perfectly.

Our director Camilla grew up surrounded by her great great grandmothers stunning designs, but it was an invitation to the V&A museum in London in 2006 to see the full Lucile collection which sparked Camilla’s passion and a sense of pride for this iconic brand. Camilla fell in love with the way Lady Duff Gordon made women look and feel, her passion for femininity, her ability to capture the essence of the female soul and her fearless nature, she was unafraid of shocking her audiences with sheer, alluring lingerie. It was these qualities that Camilla shared with her grandmother, and these passions which inspired Camilla to revive and re-enchant the world with Lucile.

Many of Lucile’s current collections are inspired by their past collections, such as ‘The Duchess of Warwick’ line from the AW13 collection. Named after one of Lucile's most glamourous clients of the early 20th century. Famously, this glamourous woman requested all of Lucile's black silk negligee's to match her boudoir drapes and sheets.

The Duchess of Warwick

From the 3rd of June to the 15th of November at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York an exhibition on the History of Lingerie will be taking place. Documenting the transgressions through the era’s, from the days of the corsets to our modern day bras.

Here is our style guide for a day in super chic and stylish Cannes and tips on what to visit.

Cannes Style Guide

Inspired by the Cannes Festival Film release of the Grace Kelly biopic, we have gone for an elegant 1950’s look. Using the softness of the ‘Shortness of Time’ collection and pairing the lingerie with equally fresh colours, yet matching a couple black accessories to give it a bit of structure. This ‘Shortness of Time’ style guide is a perfect day look for viewing the city!

Lucile Bra Guide

Finding the perfect bra can be a chore at times, trying to obtain all factors of comfort, shape, style and support. Our lingerie collections – that are all hand crafted in the UK – use the purest silks and French lace. Our team of lingerie experts spend hours working with all our bras to ensure the best possible fit in each of our bra styles.

We offer a range of bras in our unique and luxurious collections from our Signature Lace Balcony bras to the ultimate of comfort of our Boudoir Bras.

We understand at Lucile that it is often difficult to decide which style of bra to choose – there are so many options! So, here is our breakdown and guide to each of our bra styles, to help you decide the best bra for you in terms of size, shape and support.

Signature Lace Bra

Signature Lace Balcony Bra

Firstly we have is the Signature Lace Balcony Bra, which is our most popular style. This sheer lace bra is designed for support and natural shape. A soft feminine mixture of silk and lace lingerie offers full coverage of the bust, which makes the lingerie suitable for all shapes. It is a great style for those who prefer non padded cups, as this bra will not make your bust look any bigger than it naturally is.

This signature style from Lucile is hand crafted in England and endures rigorous trials to ensure a flawless finish and beautiful fit.

Silk Balcony Bra

Silk Balcony Bra

Next, are the Silk Balcony bras, much like the Signature Lace Balcony bras in shape and cut yet moulded to give subtle support and a more structured shape. Each of the silk bras has elaborate hand cut lace detailing which makes the lingerie feel sumptuous and luxurious.

These bras also feature multiway straps, making them not only luxurious but also extremely versatile. Wear it in a halter neck, racer back or in the traditional way. A great alternative to the T-Shirt Bra.

Silk Lined Plunge Bra

Silk Lined Plunge Bra

Our Silk Lined Plunge Bras offer a fuller natural shape and are extremely comfortable. These stunning silk bras are the definition of luxury lingerie. Fully lined with coloured silk, with a beautiful lace overlay – this bra offers a fabulous fit and a flawless shape.

This style is most popular with our smaller cup sized ladies. We recommend these bras for any top or blouse which may have a plunging neckline.

Boudoir Bra

Boudoir Bra

Last but not least, we have the beautifully hand crafted Boudoir Bras. These non wired bras are ideal for maximum comfort and a feminine natural shape, soft silk triangle cups with stunning lace detailing. This bra combines true beauty and comfort, embellished as always with signature bows for that ultra feminine touch.

We recommend these for those lazy days at home, or, they are ideal for summer time sleepwear.
