Courtesan Behaviour

LUXE British underwear label The Modern Courtesan has actually found its “supreme” courtesan in Esme Bianco – burlesque dancer, vocalist, actress and former muse of Terry de Havilland and Agent Provocateur – who is the face of its 2 most recent collections: The Hunt and Weekend in the Nation.

Motivated by illicit hours whiled away in rural England, Weekend in the Country is a confection of pink chiffon and lace with accents of tweed while The Hunt comes all in racing green – in short, best search for blushing English roses wanting to indulge their inner playfulness.

“I believe that sexy underclothing can be seen even when you are dressed – it comes out in the method you stroll, your posture, your cheeky smile, whatever!” says Bianco, who is thrilled with her brand-new function. “The new collections are so original that they were an enjoyment to model – The Modern Courtesan’s use of material in both collections is very special. I love the mix of lace and tweed.”
