Dolci Follie in Vogue’s Bra Fitting Top 5!

Dolci Follie vogue bra fitting

Whilst leafing through the latest copy of Vogue this month, you may have spotted a familiar name! We were delighted to see Dolci Follie listed on the Vogue Spy page, under Serena Hood’s Bra Fitting top 5.

On the page dedicated to the importance of luscious lace and silk lingerie and slips this season, Vogue Spy didn’t forget the importance of a perfect fit.

We especially liked Serena’s very true comment:

“Behind every great look, there’s an even greater set of underwear”

We couldn’t agree more!

At Dolci Follie, we know the importance of a good fit when it comes to bras, which is why all our staff are expertly trained in bra fitting. We know each brand can come up differently, and not every bra shape will be suitable for every breast shape, so it can be very helpful to have an expert’s assistance when choosing lingerie.

If you haven’t been fitted for a while, pop down to the boutique for a bra fit. If you’re buying online and are unsure about sizing, call us on +44(0)2072299085 or email us and we can give you some advice.

Happy 2nd Birthday Dolci Follie!

After another wonderful whirlwind year of lingerie, pop-up shops, catwalks, club-nights and much more, we’re celebrating our 2nd Birthday with a bang!

Join us at the Notting Hill boutique to celebrate the occasion with us.

Wednesday 6th November
6pm – 9pm

Peruse the sensational new collection whilst sipping on a glass (or two!) of Prosecco and tucking into some very special birthday cake.

We’re even giving 20% off all evening – so grab a birthday present for yourself!

Christmas Party Dressing with Littleblackdress.co.uk

Christmas party dress from little black dress

Tis the season to party and this can only mean one thing – it’s the season to splash out on a flawless Christmas party outfit. We’ve teamed up with the style experts at LittleBlackDress.co.uk to ensure your Christmas ensemble is the envy of all your friends, from the perfect dress to the sexiest lingerie. Take it away Team LBD…

The pink trend

Pretty pink was an undeniable trend on the AW13 catwalks with Burberry Prorsum, Roland Mouret and a host of other designers proving popping and pastel pink is a style to transcend seasons. This feminine theme was continued onto the SS14 collections with sheer detailing and flower appliques as seen on the fanciful collections of Marchesa and Dolce and Gabbana. For a show stopping Christmas dress, opt for a long flowing pink gown like this Elliot Claire Ecru Embroidered Evening Dress to cement your style status. To keep pulses racing this pretty pink Chantal Thomas underwear will ensure you’re feeling feminine and sexy.

Red Hot Lace

In case you hadn’t noticed, red is a key trend on both this and next season’s catwalks, with designers Jason Wu and Elie Saab proving that this sultry cherry red is a key look. Reflect your inner siren like red carpet couturier Carolina Herrera has done with a plunging red floor-length gown like this Gorgeous Couture Amelia Maxi Dress. Underneath, opt for sexy lace lingerie like this Christies bodice that combines another favourite trend on the AW13 runway, lace.

Grunge it up

For style with a bite, channel your inner Chanel with the grunge trend that has proved de rigueur this season. From Givenchy to Saint Laurent, black has been a key colour to play with; studded detailing, dominatrix-esque details and feminine pleats for a quirky twist have made this an unforgettable look. Do it like Bottega Vaneta have done and opt for ladylike shapes with a grunge effect like this shoulder studded Chi Chi London Bridget Dress. Pair with these unforgettable styles from Feu de Venus (exclusive to Dolci Follie) for the ultimate Christmas party outfit.

Dolci Follie at DO NOT DISTURB, Tonteria

tonteria dolci follie

Scandalous, Sizzling hot, and very, very Sexy – our Thursday night at Tonteria was certainly a night to remember…and the photos are not for the faint-hearted!

With a queue literally round the block and the likes of Made in Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews waiting eagerly to get in, DO NOT DISTURB at Tonteria was already raising excitement in Sloane Square, even before things really started hotting up. The crowded basement club promised titillation, tease and plenty of tequila…and it didn’t disappoint.

Do Not Disturb Tonteria
Get Ready for a Wild Night…

Last week, we collaborated with the organisers of a new clubnight at the capital’s trendiest bar, Guy Pelly & Marc Burton’s Tonteria in Sloane Square.

The new night, DO NOT DISTURB, is all about the wilder side of life…titillation, tease, seduction and sex. Naturally, they came to Dolci Follie to help create the perfect atmosphere.

We had the enviable task of dressing the stunning models for the evening, with a total of five outfit changes. The looks chosen were some of our favourite sets from our amazing collection, including pieces from Dirty Pretty Things, I.D. Sarrieri, Fleur of England, Made by Niki, Lascivious, Nichole de Carle and eyemasks from Luna Veneziana.

The gorgeous girls strutted their stuff around the crowded club, breaking hearts with every high-heeled footstep. We were so excited to see the sensational ensembles on show, and getting so much attention!

At Midnight, burlesque beauties The Sweet Harlots treated the crowd to a very risque and red-hot performance incorporating card-games, hot wax, and our daring Dragonfly Nipple Tassels…the steamy show left more than a few guests a little hot under the collar.

Infamous club owners Guy Pelly and Marc Burton no doubt took pleasure in making sure the launch ran smoothly, even sending off tequila shots on their toy train which circles the entire club.

Other familiar faces of the West End set who enjoyed the VIP area included Jake Warren, Henry Conway, Elizabeth Murdoch, Jamie Murray-Wells, Tom Freud, Ben Goldsmith, Francis Boulle and Javed Fiyaz, who at one point even bought the entire club a shot of XB Sex on the Beach!

All the Bright Young Things of West London danced the night away with whips, masks, latex, leather and of course lingerie from Dolci Follie.

At the end of the night, 100 lucky guests received Dolci Follie goodie bags with some cheeky treats inside such as Luna Veneziana nipple tassels, Christies playtime eyemasks or tie cuffs, and raunchy red thongs, designed to inspire a little naughtiness even after the party…

See some of our favourite photos below, or see more on our facebook page.

The party has already been featured on The Gentleman’s Journal, GQ and in Tatler
