Bonjour, Coquets et Coquettes! The big red day is almost upon us, and this year we take inspiration from three of Europe's most legendary little flirts to give you a few lingerie ideas for an evening full of romance and intrigue. So without further ado: One is a girlish iconic model/actress/singer from the 50's, another is a fresh-faced model and former First Lady of France, and the third is an Italian bombshell actress and overall manslayer. Three European broads who share little else in common but a palpable elegance and sex appeal. So fellows, which type is your dearest? A... Continue reading

Salut, Coquettes! When Punxsutawney Phil forecasted an early spring this past Groundhog Day, it only meant one thing to us lingerie mavens: sooner than later, it will be time to retire this season's amazing hosiery! Which is why we think it's a perfect time to test our own legwear limits. Here are some looks that have piqued our interest and inspired us to take the conversation beyond sheer vs. opaque, black vs. nude: If you're new to the idea of eyecatching legwear, start easy with the classics: a seamed stocking or tight (Wolford's Individual 10 Backseam tights are a favorite)...

Bonjour, Coquettes! While the weather outside is indeed frightful, we at LPC are doing everything we can to see the light at the end of the tunnel-- visions of Tahitian sun and sand dance in our heads as the New York winter soaks and blows us around. What's more, our cruise collection has just landed in-store via our brilliant brands from Colombia and Brazil, and the stunning lineup only serves to feed our vivid daydreams. Here, we give you a peek into the trends and styles we have exclusively in-store that, like us, just might make you plan an impromptu... Continue reading

Bonjour, coquettes! The boutique is all abuzz this week over the very special latest addition to our arsenal of sexy. Ladies and gentlemen, connoisseurs of coquettry, let us introduce you to Atsuko Kudo Latex Couture: Japanese-born Atsuko Kudo's designs come to us straight from her atelier in London, where Rebecca first fell in love with her one-of-a-kind pieces. And when we say "latex couture," we mean it-- her work is bespoke, made to measure entirely of latex rubber with amazingly innovative treatments and prints. The line consists of a wide range of minidresses and lingerie, but for those might not... Continue reading

Bonjour, Coquettes! The gift-giving season is officially here, and already we're delivering sexy little black boxes all over the country filled with stunning lace confections. This year, we're especially inspired by Aubade's alluring gift sets, appropriately named Boîte à Désir ("Desire Box"). There are nine different boxes of sultry little underpinnings and accessories that promise to add a little spice and intrigue to the holiday this year: Inspired by this idea of gifting a medley of instruments of pleasure, we've put together a few of our own "desire box" ideas that would have even Pandora taking a second peek under...

Bonjour, Coquettes! Halloween is in the air (and in our fabulous window), so it seems only fitting that such a fun, creative holiday receive its due credit on our blog as well. With so many unique, wearable pieces in the shop right now, the possibilities for a knockout costume are endless. Here, we imagine a few options, straight from our racks: THE CAN CAN DANCER Whether you're of the Moulin Rouge persuasion or are looking to go a bit more vintage, shopping this look is a no-brainer at LPC. A beautiful bustier, a pair of stockings (feel free to have... Continue reading

Bonjour, Coquettes! With Halloween fast approaching, we thought we'd shake things up a bit. Instead of showing you the finest frills money can buy as we normally would, this week, we showcase some of the wildest (and in some cases, scariest) lingerie we've ever set eyes on, as well as some similar and more wearable looks you can find in our drawers at the shop. Our first in this strange lingerie series could easily spark another round of crusades: If weekend jousting isn't really your thing, but the idea of metalwork on lingerie piques your interest, we have just the...

Bonjour, Coquettes! It seems like every autumn, lingerie designers put more and more emphasis on the elusive high-waisted brief. Like Russian caviar or a fine Rocamadour cheese, high waisted briefs are a delicacy, but also an acquired taste. Here, we shed some light on just who can wear them (everyone) and how to execute (always with a man-slaying pair of heels): One of the most fabulous things about high knickers is that they can take so many forms. From innocent to racy, vintage feminine to sporty, this type of panty is incredibly versatile. On the one hand, high knickers are... Continue reading

Bonjour, Coquettes! Fashion month has begun, and each day brings several gorgeous new reasons to be excited for Spring 2013. While we're loving the looks that came out of New York last week and continue to emerge from London this week, we're noticing that a lot of the trends for next spring are already happening in lingerie this fall. That means two things: One, instant gratification, no more seeing the collections and waiting six months to get the look. And two, you can feel clever for two seasons in your new underpinnings because they'll still be perfectly on-trend come spring!... Continue reading

Bonjour, chères amies! We've crossed the threshold into September, and our stunning fall collections have begun to find their way onto our racks. This week, we're turning to the stars to show that there really is a sexy little treasure for every personality at LPC. Let's start off with the birthday Coquettes: VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Always beautifully composed, the Virgo gal has a demure, lady-in-waiting quality. Pastels, lush fabrics and feminine details are perfect for her. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Libras love to surround themselves with harmony and beauty. With the scales as their symbol,...

Bonjour, Coquettes! This week, we’re inspired by a fitting room confession: many women simply can’t bear to buy a bra without the bottom to match. Some will even insist on two bottoms per bra, since panties tend to wear faster than their cup-sized counterparts. As lovers of what lies beneath, we wholeheartedly accept this rule. Here, some of the compelling arguments in the case for the matching panty: THE RENEGADE TAXI SCENARIO We hear about it all the time: the horror of a crosswalk run-in with a reckless cab on the very day you thought you could get away with...

Salut, petites choux! This week we’re reporting from deep in the lingerie trenches, otherwise known as market week. It’s the time of year where lacy, innocent little numbers battle it out with dark and dangerous ensembles for space on our spring racks (no pun intended!). From the thousands of bras, panties, chemises and bustiers we’ve seen so far, here are a few of the trends that have emerged victorious: Nothing like a bolt of color to add a little zing to a lingerie drawer full of neutrals. Neon is the new nude, coquettes! This season more than ever, lingerie designers... Continue reading

Salut coquettes, long live the queen! A mighty expression, indeed – although you probably won’t hear it too often on this side of the pond. Yes, we do speak the same lingo, but it’s pretty obvious there’s quite the difference between British English and our very own Americana. It’s something along the lines of I say tomato, you say tom-AH-to. Yet there’s more to it than their make-anything-sound-cool accent. Even the word bollocks sounds proper with an English intonation! As the hype builds around the Summer Olympics, let’s have a look at the bon mots and lovely London specialties that... Continue reading

Salut sweet coquettes, it's no secret that we love ourselves a good rack! Boobs, tits, ta-tas - call them whatever you like - when a woman accessorizes her assets with sensuous décolletage it lets the world know she owns her sexuality. No longer limited to eveningwear, showing cleavage is on the up and up for all times of day! A true coquette reveals more through the simple cleft between her breasts than just a push-up bra and plunging neckline (although there’s nothing wrong with those!) She’s confident. She’s provocative. She’s having a good time! Determining how much cleavage is right... Continue reading

Bonjour coquettes, it's the age of transparency! Businesses need to back their brand with authenticity which is no problem for LPC -- pas du tout! We’re a no BS boutique that’s got your breast interests at heart. We’re telling it like it is so you can look and feel top notch. If you’re wearing the wrong bra – we will let you know. If you’ve got VPL up the wazoo - you’ll hear about it. We’ll even mention the piece of lettuce stuck between your teeth! Since transparency is the name of the game, it’s time to reveal what lies...

Bonjour petites coquettes, as THE flirt-filled boutique with all things sexy, we have committed ourselves to spreading the love of lingerie. We love love love to stumble upon media pics or celebrities who share our sentiment and flaunt their foundations freely! Let's take a moment to enjoy these bits of inspiration, shall we? Let's celebrate the transformative power of the right (and perfect!) lingerie that we've seen lately. Mikael Jansson Holy transformation! Katy Perry goes unrecognizable for the cover of Interview. Bye-bye cupcake-pop-chick, hello chic and sexy! And what about the bedazzled bra featured front and center on a monthly... Continue reading

Salut cher coquettes, with the big American holiday just around the bend, who's feeling the itch to flee the scene? We're thinking that a good old fashioned road trip may be the perfect way to celebrate our beloved red, white and blue. Is it not the iconic adventure with freedom at the helm? Forget the map! Load the car with Led Zeppelin and gummy bears. We're hitting the road with no promises and no regrets. And just remember coquettes, whatever happens on the road....stays on the road! Your essentials for the the open highway? The triple threat - best friends,... Continue reading

Bonjour coquettes, welcome to summer! We’re not huge fans of the all-out scorchers that the dog days bring, but there is some appeal amidst this over-the-top heat. Perhaps it’s the rough and tumble look that even the mailman wears while doing his rounds under the blistering sun. Oh-la-la, it’s hot hot hot! As the temps soar to sweltering degrees it becomes A-OK to wear next to nothing, and that means your lingerie becomes even more important. Whether you’re keeping it on, or taking it off - relief from the heat is key. Here’s what we propose to stay cool. Gil... Continue reading

Bonjour petite coquettes, located in the heart of Greenwich Village, our boutique attracts women of all shapes, sizes and ages. While the fresh faced buds of the younger set are promising in their own right – it’s those blooming on the other side of 40 that we post on today. With experience that accentuates personal style, their allure begins well below the surface. They’ve come into their own, and they’re coming on strong! Can you say multiple orgasms? Indeed! With sexuality under their belts, confidence exudes. Allons-y coquettes, let’s salut las femmes d’une certain age. Hello Samantha Jones! It is... Continue reading

Salut sweet coquettes, if a picture speaks a thousand words then photographers are masters at prose. By snatching a moment that transcends language, and propels forward with meaning - they give their photos a story. Here, a batch of photographers that we look to for more than just a pretty girl. P.S. Lots of lingerie included! Intrigued? Guy Bourdin Guy Bourdin’s world of photography was beautiful to the point of discomfort. A model once said that it took a sadomasochist to pose for him. Guy Bourdin As a Vogue photographer for the bulk of his career, he was one of... Continue reading

Bonjour coquettes, it’s time we turn our attention to that unexpected moment of the upskirt. Whether it’s a soft summer breeze or spontaneous rapture – the element of surprise is always in the forecast with the free-flowing form of the skirt. To steer clear of the disaster otherwise known as the wardrobe malfunction, let’s take the upskirt by the horns, and handle it with finesse. You’ll need the perfect pair of undies, bien sûr! Don't worry coquettes, we’ve got you (literally) covered. Marilyn Monroe memorialized the upskirt moment over a subway grate in The Seven Year Itch. The scene, originally... Continue reading

To shake up the routine with a bundle of guilty pleasures! So whether it’s a vacation or stay-cation that’s calling your name, here’s what we suggest to fully indulge in the moment. Start your day in pearls, thigh-highs and a pop of red. It will provide a smooth finish to the daily news. Settle in with a juicy book. Currently on our nightstand -- The Kama Sutra. A glass of red on the... Continue reading
