WHAT A TEESE: Dita Von Teese and Christian Louboutin have teamed up on a lingerie capsule collection. The burlesque star and the shoe designer have created a seven-piece line in limited edition sold exclusively on Glamuse.com, a lingerie e-tailer.
Called XXXtian, the line includes a bra, a bodice and suspenders, all made with a naughty toile de Jouy motif designed by Louboutin and printed on silk that is adorned with Leavers lace. This marks the designer’s first venture in lingerie.
Prices range from 87.42 euros, or $108.34 at current exchange, for panties to 749.92 euros, or $929.40, for a negligee kimono.
XXXtian is a nod to the signature the shoe designer uses at the end of his emails “Xtian,” according to Von Teese. “Given the erotic nature of the print, we decided to name [the collection] ‘XXXtian’.”
Glamuse.com also carries key collections from Von Teese, including Madame X, Marlene, Parisienne and Screen Queen.
The e-tailer based in Nancy, Eastern France, stocks lingerie labels such as Chantal Thomass, L’Agent by Agent Provocateur and Aubade.
