A look at Simone Perele Fall 2008....

Lingerie Show Report: Simone Perele Fall 2008.

Here's a look at the Simone Perele Lingerie Fall Collection 2008 (For your eyes only). Which collection (Stiletto, Avant Premiere, Paradis, Palace, Backstage, Dress Code) do you prefer? I know it's a tough choice because everything look fantastic.

Don't you love the theme?.. very hollywoodesque! You are invited to the "Avant Premiere" (translation from French: "movie preview"). There will be a "dress code" to attend i.e you will need to wear you sexy "Stiletto". You will have a chance to go "Backstage" to meet and mingle with the actors and then meet us for the after hour party at the"Palace". Wow...great program!

Back to some serious questions: We love the new Simone Perele lingerie Fall 2008 collection....but we can't buy it all! So which one do you want to see at Coup de Foudre this Fall?

Drop us an email or leave a comment on our blog.

Front Row at Lingerie Fashion Week- New York

We are heading out to Lingerie Americas in New York on Saturday night until Monday. (Please note that the store will be closed on Monday). We are excited to see the Fall 2008 lingerie collection from Chantelle, Aubade, Huit, Simone Perele, Barbara, Ravage, just to name a few and see the new and latest lingerie trends for the Fall.

We will give you a front row look at this Fall lingerie collections, highlights from various lingerie designers and insider scoop on what is going on . We will break down our report into lingerie trends and "must- haves" and organize it into a single cohesive post. That might be a challenge! Yes, we must admit that after spending 2 hectic days at Lingerie Americas we have problems remembering what we have seen! That's why we take lots of notes (color, type of lace, cut, style, fit on model, wearability, price, etc...) for every lingerie collections that we see.

This year, we are inviting our customers and blog readers to select what we should carry for this Fall. We will post pictures of the Fall Lingerie collections and invite you to vote on your favorites. You will have a short window of opportunity to vote because our fall orders need to be submitted A.S.A.P. Hopefully you are up for a lingerie fashion challenge!
