Rouge Seduire_Pin It To Win It V Day Contest_Jan 2013The unparalleled, sexy and seductive, luxury lingerie line, Rouge Séduire has launched the “Pin It to Win It” Valentine’s Day Contest.  Fans of the brand have the opportunity to express their originality by creating a dedicated Pinterest board representing the theme #TheArtofSeduction.  On February 4th, the brand’s designer, Sharon Fan, will select one winner to receive a Rouge Séduire Bra and Panty set of their choice (valued up to $500 USD.)  The winner will receive her new lingerie set just in time for the hottest holiday of the year, Valentine’s Day!

Rouge Seduire_Mimi SetThe recently launched brand was conceived to evoke seductive imagery.  It is elegant, dramatic, mysterious, alluring and sexy.  Inspired by geometry such as the chevron pattern, iconic Art Deco architecture such as the famed Chrysler Building in NYC as well as authentic Japanese bondage art, each piece in the debut collection encourages women to embrace their inherent sensuality.

Intimate Affair: The Art of Seduction – Tease and Please Event at La Petite Coquette

21 Nov

On Wednesday, November 16, 2011, the downtown NYC lingerie boutique La Petite Coquette hosted a private “invite only” event called Tease and Please.  The Intimate Affair was co-hosted by La Petite Coquette and the seductive French lingerie brand Maison Close.  I was invited to the event by Luis Paredes of The Lingerie Journal and was accompanied by TLJ writer Mozz Manzoor.  We did not know what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised by the Intimate Affair which provided an intimate look at the lost art of seduction.  Maison Close’s latest intimate apparel collections (including accessories) were modeled throughout the night.  Guest speaker Clinette Basden-Tucker discussed the variety of “sexual enhancement products” that are available for sale at the boutique.  And, the highlight of the night was a performance by New York-based Burlesque dancer and performance artist Legs Malone.  The Intimate Affair was a tasteful event which provided guests an opportunity to explore the art of seduction in a safe and sophisticated setting.

Maison Close Villa Caprice Collection plus Romantic Accessories

French label Maison Close has developed a collection of sexy yet sophisticated luxury lingerie designed for the true coquette in each of us.  The sensibility of the brand is reminiscent of the British label Agent Provocateur.  However, Maison Close is considerably less expensive.  In addition to intimate apparel such as bras, bralettes, panties, garter belts and bodysuits, the brand carries unique (and hard to find) intimate silhouettes such as catsuits, leggings, dresses and skirts.  Maison Close also offers coordinating romantic accessories to complete your seductive style.  Accessories include luxury collars, belts, bowties, cuffs, gloves, harnesses, masks, handcuffs, nipple covers, feather ticklers, blindfolds and riding crops.  The collection is so sophisticated and luxurious that there’s little shame in exploring your wild side.

La Petite Coquette carries an array of high-end sensual products such as candles, oils, moisturizers and lubricants as well as board games, toys and other accessories which can be used to enhance intimate moments with your partner (or on your own.)  Brands include Lelo, Jimmyjane, Lovely Planet and Booty Parlor.  The products were on display at Wednesday’s Intimate Affair and La Petite Coquette’s very own Clinette Basden-Tucker took her time to explain the purpose of each item and how to best utilize it to heighten your sensuality and sexuality.  Clinette is an expert in the art of seduction.

Maison Close Villa Satine Collection

In today’s fast-paced world, we seek instant gratification on all levels…. in our career, in our personal relationships as well as in the bedroom.  Our senses are inundated with information from multiple sources at any given moment throughout the day.  I think it’s fair to say that most of us have become desensitized and have forgotten how to enjoy the nuances of individual moments.  How unfortunate it is!  We have lost the art of seduction along the way…. Performer Legs Malone reminded us of the power we all have to slow down and enjoy the playfulness of the “tease.”  Legs distinguished the difference between “tease and please.”  She said that pleasing refers to satisfaction and that teasing is about withholding.  Legs demonstrated an ultra sensual strip tease for the guests and took the time to educate the crowd on how to tease in a way that heightens the senses.  Her strip tease was sultry and slow, elegant, classy and sophisticated.  She reminded the guests that each of us has this ability within us.  It is not about the “finale,” it is about the journey along the way.  Legs taught us how to reveal without giving up too much….  Seduction is about a sense of confidence.  It is about appreciating our body exactly as it is (with all of its imperfections.)  Legs Malone is a gifted performer and a patient teacher.  It seems (as a society) that we have lost sight of the art of seduction.  I look forward to taking a few moments each day to slow down long enough to appreciate the beautiful, sensual being that I am!

Legs Malone

Rebecca Apsan, owner of La Petite Coquette

Rebecca Apsan, owner of La Petite Coquette, was our gracious host for the evening.  The downtown boutique was transformed into an intimate lounge which was warm and inviting; guests felt comfortable exploring their sensuality.  La Petite Coquette opened its doors in New York City over thirty years ago.  It is considered a “lingerie institution” in Manhattan.  The intimate boutique provides personal and professional expertise on lingerie, bra fittings, and all other sexy, playful things.  I encourage you to visit the boutique at 51 University Place in Greenwich Village, NYC, where the decor is evocative of a Victorian salon draped with lace & silk, and lit with fringed lamps which create a warm and sexy invitation to the shop.
