L.A. Noir: Honey Birdette Does Hollywood

It may be called the City of Angels, but history shows Los Angeles is the domain of the femme fatale. As the saying goes, good girls might go to heaven, but bad girls go everywhere and there is no better bad girl uniform than Honey Birdette‘s distinctive dark styles.

Finnoula is a delightful mix of contrasts. Sheer mesh and metallic filigree lace combine with delicate, angular, criss-crossing straps. The neckline is able to be worn two ways and the playsuit is multi-adjustable. A true seduction garment.

In less than a decade, the brand has single-handedly revolutionized the Australian lingerie market, making risqué undergarments and luxury toys easily available in 45 retail locations. In the process, they’ve shone a spotlight on female sensuality while normalizing and celebrating the self-assured and sexually confident woman. Honey Birdette is a haven for an army of loyal fans, women who prefer to walk on the wilder side of life. Now they’ve got their sights set on the USA.

The Fox is a truly exceptional collection of lingerie. Constructed from sheer mesh, black satin, with gold buckles and leatherette details, this style can be worn in an unparalleled twenty-two different combinations. Truly innovative lingerie design and a worthwhile investment if not for versatility alone.

L.A. is the birthplace of the style that showcases Honey Birdette best – a glamour steeped in Old Hollywood, glittering fantasy and a dark and dangerous past. It’s befitting that these styles from HB’s current collection, with 1920’s art-deco influences such as angular lines, lace-trimmed graphic shapes and metal adornments, might make their way home here. Waiting to wear them is a muse that is equal parts mysterious and unconventionally appealing. This is no basic babe. Is she our heroine, a love interest or damsel in distress? A seductress, a siren? A private eye? An assassin? A vixen or a villain? We may never know, but one thing’s for sure: we want to watch her adventure unfold…

LAUNCHING SOON: The Luna bodysuit is comfortable and versatile. As the bodysuit in general makes a major comeback, this style features a plunging, open neckline and is constructed from an elegant and intricate lace. Wear the Luna bodysuit either on her own or with jeans, leather pants or pencil skirt for a risqué outerwear look.

So follow our vintage vamp, as she stalks the halls of L.A.’s iconic Hotel Normandie. Built in 1926, the hotel, with its chandeliers and checkered floors, is rich in history and intrigue. The recently renovated establishment, all sumptuous wood and dimly lit corridors, is the perfect place, not only for our film noir-inspired story, but your next illicit encounter, should you find yourself in the city. One should definitely take the opportunity to sip a glass of champagne on their velvet lounges, between fireplace and piano, or, perhaps, thumb the pages of their library’s books for a little romance (‘Atonement’ anyone?).

Sit back and enjoy, we hope you’ll be inspired to go and ‘choose-your-own adventure’. Know that when you do, whether on-screen, on the streets or in the sheets, Honey Birdette is ready to arm you with weapons of mass seduction.
