Yesterday, in London, I attended the launch of Gok's Spring Summer 2012 Underwear Range and as soon as I walked in, I was VERY, VERY excited. You see - as a girl who wears Gok's bras - regularly - I'm always interested to see what will happen next in his collection. I did like the last range he released, but being honest - was GA GA for the Vintage styles I originally reviewed in 2010... so I've been secretly hoping he would stray back towards those styles. HE HAS.
I can't begin to tell you how happy I was to see the simple, yet structured, sexy lines of this collection. Gok is calling this one his "Wall of Fame" which is based entirely on revamped and redesigned pieces from previous collections - he's listened to his customers, improved items, brought back delicious favourites and retained some of the gentler tones from his last season!
The Collection will come in three colours - Crush (the brighter orange), Blush (a baby pink) and Slate (a sultry grey - which was my favourite!). Pieces released will include his signature Banger Boosters, Slicker Knicker, Divine Outline and Sassy Slip. As ever - there will also be some sexy thigh shapers as well as a Curve Controller for your body!
As with previous collections, this range includes powermesh technology - which I've described before as feeling like a really awesome swimsuit style "power" material. It holds you in, but doesn't suffocate you because your body can breathe. I've always found Gok's range comfortable!
Gok was lovely at the event and took time for everyone. I chatted to him, telling him how when I came across from Australia three years ago I needed to find a new, "main range" and he came to my rescue. I wore one of his bras under my Anna Scholz dress and when I showed him (I am such a minx!), he laughed. It made me think about how women feel comfortable with him - and why not - he's easy to feel comfortable with!
The new range releases at Simply Yours in March - so (for me, at least!), it really is something to look forward to. I want a Banger Booster in every colour and the Sassy Slip and Divine Outline in Slate! That's my plan!
This is a range I love, so I feel really lucky I got to go to the launch.
Gok and I. Fierce.
The new Gok Cleavage Plate.
Until next time!
(AND HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY to all the people back home! x.)
