We may have lost Ugg boots to the Americans but it seems we have gained Dita Von Teese. Australian company, Lime Door, have secured a collaboration deal with the queen of retro chic to produce a line of lingerie and undergarments. Obviously as a famed burlesque performer this seems the best design route for Von Teese to take, but as her reputation as a style icon continues to grow, whispers of an eventual dress range and other possible categories become louder and louder. For now it’s a lingerie line with a vast sizing chart, and, as a celebrated curvy gal herself Von Teese claims she is “especially excited to be designing with a vast sizing range so that women of all shapes and sizes can have a beautiful, sensual lingerie wardrobe”. The debut collection will be available in Australian later this year, with a planned international release in early 2012.
