Australian lingerie retailer Honey Birdette delivers its Spring 2019 lingerie ad campaign ‘London Calling’. The setting is spot on with news that Honey Birdette now has 63 stores worldwide and bills itself as the world’s fastest-growing lingerie brand.
The campaign follows “Dutch bombshell” Dioni Tabbers and “fierce French brunette” Charlie Dupont from Honey Birdette’s Indecent Manor campaign. The duo hookup again in London, and the sparks fly with the same ferocious heat.
A visit to the lingerie boutique’s new LA Westfield Century City location greets us on the Honey Birdette US landing page. This represents HB’s first lingerie shopping location in the US.

Irreverent. Progressive.
Rising stars Adut Akech, Anok Yai and Kaia Gerber front Fendi’s Spring Summer 2019 campaign, lensed by the now-deceased Karl Lagerfeld. For those who suggest that the love fest between Adut and Kaia above is staged for the ad campaign, the two young women are very close friends in real life.
As fashion struggles to acknowledge past sins around diversity and in our human relationships generally, we must also acknowledge the reality of inspiring relationships as well. While I am totally exasperated with Gucci and Prada over blackface sweaters and trinkets, and now we add Burberry’s lynching/suicide rope from the Fall 2019 show, I want to just scream.
Simultaneously, when deep relationships and friendships between black women and white women exist — as is the case between Adut and Kaia — they must also receive our positive acknowledgement. Many will accuse Lagerfeld of staging the intimate, powerful photo of Kaia and Adut that leads this post. Thankfully, it is for real, and I am grateful for their message for humanity. Goddess knows we need it. ~ Anne
