Fashionz Feature: TOUSHE At Air NZ Fashion Week


Fashionz.co.nz Feature: TOUSHE At Air NZ Fashion Week

TOUSHE Lace bra and panties are SO last season. Whether you're a punk, hippy, mod, innocent girl, wannabe Jackson Pollock or a Las Vegas showgirl Toushe has the individual, witty, playful and theatrical lingerie for you.

Each set of undergarments is brought to life with unique fabrics and trims, cutaways, diamante detailing, ruffles, unusual fabrics and unique ties.

The first set in the range would put any Bond girl to shame. The slinky silver fabric shimmered like the model had just emerged from the sea, speargun in hand, a trio of chains swung from hip to hip.

Innocence echoed through the three pieces that followed: a nude colour palette with candy floss ruffles, paint splattered fabric and a cami and knickers set with oval lime-rimmed cutaways on the sides and at the base of the back.

The promise of naughty nights in the boudoir was evident in the racy red bustier, laced elegantly on the sides by wide silk ribbons. And if you ever thought a Las Vegas showgirl was hiding somewhere inside you, the ruched fine mesh dress gathered around the buttocks and breasts will bring her out.

Imagine black honeycomb jersey fabric stretched across a neon orange and you have the youthful, punk-inspired set; picture a mod with black plastic discs hanging from her bra and panties dancing alongside Austin Powers and you have the 60's set; and if you fancy a trippy hippy flashback, check out the tie-dye cami and briefs of the flower power set.

But if you are feeling truly daring - you can sport the black strap bikini and bra that will ensure no one ever forgets you - and your Toushe.

    Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

    Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

    Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

    On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

    Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

    Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

    Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

    Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

    Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

    Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

    Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
