15th May

A bright azure of sea with shades of navy, turquoise and aqua filled Rigby & Peller's flagship store on Conduit Street for the launch of their Spring/Summer '13 swimwear collection.  Inspired by the charm of Miami, the collection is split into two ranges:  Ocean Drive and South Beach. With glamorous touches of gold and vibrant hues of pink and purple, it's easy to imagine you're on the beach in Miami soaking up the sun. Rigby & Peller are famous for the quality of their bespoke lingerie and the innovation of their styling, and this swimwer collection is no exception.
Delicious canapés and tantalising cocktails and champagne were on hand while models showed off the new pieces to get you in the mood, and even a holiday giveaway to the Seychelles was to be won. False lash experts Eyelure were giving lash makeovers and there were opportunities for fittings - I was surprised at how different in size I thought I was! 
Poppy Dinsey, founder of lifestyle website What I Wore Today, spoke candidly about her experience of a badly fitted bra and how Rigby & Peller's fitting service helped her. What's great about Rigby & Peller is they don't use measuring tapes - only by sight they determine what size you are. And a luxury service would not be complete without the added choice of alterations to get that perfect fit. 
I spoke with managing director Sharon Teasdale about her inspiration for the collection, and its versatility and structuring. As well as their extensive range of luxury brands they also have an exclusive Rigby & Peller range.

No wonder they have been Corsetieres to H.M. Queen Elizabeth since 1960. The collections are available at Rigby & Peller boutiques and www.rigbyandpeller.com
