Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Takes Lingerie Design Inspiration From Retro Collection

British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has opened up on her personal vintage underwear collection. The beauty has been designing her own lingerie and sleepwear line for Marks & Spencer’s ‘Autograph’ collection and she says she that she took inspiration from her own vintage wardrobe but also wanted to make sure the designs were very comfortable. She set out to create designs that balanced feeling cosy with an element of timeless style. She commented on her aim:

”I’ve collected retro lingerie for years, so my girlfriends are always asking me if I just waft around the house in vintage underwear: Of course not – I’m as real as anyone else. But I spend a lot of time at home when I’m not working and I want to feel good there. I think that’s why I was so insistent that the Rosie for Autograph sleep and lingerie collection would be comfortable and cosy – but still make women feel chic.”

The model also reveals that she has been surprised by how women react to her designs – specifically because she now gets “flashed” by people wearing her items. She explains that it is exciting to see people so enthusiastic even though it is a funny way to meet women who like her pieces:

”Women come up to me and flash their bra strap or knickers. I’m flattered because it’s usually their way of telling me they’re wearing my designs or want my advice. I guess I get excited about people flashing me their underwear for totally different reasons than most people would.”
