Asos has once again hooked up with London Fashion Week designer Marios Schwab on a deluxe lingerie line – just in time for Valentine’s Day. Landing online any day now, the latest four-piece Kallisti collection brings a serious dose of glamour to undies, adorning balconette and triangle bras with crystals and jewels, and embellishing a body-sculpting bustier with hundreds of silver sequins. They’re all so pretty it seems a shame to put clothes on top.
The name Kallisti draws on London-based Schwab’s Greek-Austrian heritage and translates to ‘for the fairest’. The phrase was inscribed on the golden Apple of Discord, which is said to have been thrown by Eris amongst a group of three goddesses at a wedding party to determine who was the most beautiful. Aphrodite triumphed over Athena and Hera. Here’s hoping we feel as glam as a goddess in Marios’s undies!
