Dolci Follie Slumber Party at BonBonniere London!

Last week we held our very first Slumber Party at the delectably decadent BonBonniere London nightclub.

It might be obvious by now that we know how to party, and our Slumber Party was certainly no exception! Prosecco flowed whilst pyjama and lingerie-clad guests danced the night away.

The evening began with complimentary cocktails and delicious sushi while we reclined and relaxed on the lavish sofas in an abundance of cushions. Pretty soon our feet were itching to get dancing and the whole club joined us on the dancefloor till the early hours! One hundred lucky ladies were treated to a fabulous Dolci Follie gift bag which including gorgeous latex rings made by William Wilde.

The party was especially exciting for us as guests had a sneak preview of a few items from the debut Dolci Follie own-label collection. You’ll be able to spot the longline silk satin bra in the pics below…!

Simona’s Guide to Choosing the Perfect Valentine’s Lingerie (THE RESIDENT)

valentines lingerie buying guide

This month, The Resident magazine quizzed Simona for her top tips in choosing the perfect lingerie for Valentine’s – see the article below!

Choosing a gorgeous and romantic lingerie set for your partner can be tricky – especially with the wide choice available. The Resident magazine asked Simona for some pointers in how to get it right and ensure a truly passion-filled, perfect Valentine’s night.

The Resident Mayfair Dolci Follie Valnetines Lingerie
Simona talks Valentine’s lingerie to The Resident

Among her top tips include:

“For those who are completely unsure about sizes, I suggest some seductive nightwear such as a sheer babydoll, or luxurious loungewear like a pure silk Kimono. It’s easier to guess the size and they’re gorgeous items to cherish”

“Valentine’s Day is all about giving luxurious gifts that you wouldn’t usually buy for yourself – lingerie is perfect as it is romantic and thoughtful – a little bit of luxury for her to enjoy”

“It’s fun to give something frivolous in Valentine’s, so I expect our cheeky Fraulein Kink accessories to be popular!”

“Often men are so afraid of getting it wrong that they play it safe and end up choosing something boring or frumpy – not at all flattering!”

See some of our top picks for Valentine’s Lingerie in our blog post here.

Dolci Follie in the Press January 2014

dolci follie press blog japan paper

It’s already becoming a very busy year for all at Dolci Follie, so it’s lovely to come across the name of the store in the pages of magazines and newspapers when we catch a moment to sit down and take five.

After our incredible Catwalk Party at Le Baron de Paris in Tokyo at the end of last year, we’ve had a lot of coverage in Japan. The most recent being at interview with Senken newspaper:

The article talks about the origins of Dolci Follie and our passion for beautiful lingerie with a perfect fit, as well as Simona’s plans to expand to Japan in the future. It’s very exciting to receive international press interest from so far away! We loved hosting the party with Hidden Agenda last November and can’t wait to visit Japan and do it all again very soon.

This month, our latest arrival from Fleur of England, the smoulderingly sensual red lace Amor set (available online here), appeared on the ‘THINGS WE LOVE’ section in the fashion pages of The Hill Resident:

It’s a strikingly sensual set perfect for Valentine’s – no wonder it’s getting a lot of attention! The lustful lace cups and luxurious silk satin ties make it a true pleasure to wear, whilst the bright, bold, rose-red colour conjures romance and passion.

Hot on the heels of our recent win at the UK Lingerie Awards 2013 (for Independent Retailer of the Year no less), the gorgeous Simona and Mariko were pictured in The Mayfair Resident:

We arrived at the grand setting of the Freemason’s Hall in Covent Garden, walked up the bright pink carpet and into the spectacular venue, bathed in atmospheric pink lights. Whilst sipping on Prosecco and cocktails, we joined other guests and caught up with some of our favourite brands.

As the Freemason’s Hall filled up, we spotted some of the celebs who had come – of course, the beautiful face of the awards, Georgia Horsley and her fiance Danny Jones. Some of our favourites faces from Made in Chelsea and The Only Way is Essex also attended, looking very glamorous for the occasion.

After a delicious meal, the ceremony began. Hosted by Millie Clode, the winners started to be announced. When it came to the Independent Retailer of the Year, all the nominees were listed; Boudoir Lingerie, Coco de Mer, Boutique65 and Dolci Follie. When Millie announced “Dolci Follie”, we were speechless!
