Helena Christensen inspired by 50s Playboy mag models for new lingerie line

Helena Christensen

Helena Christensen has admitted that she looked back to the women who were the sex sirens of their day for her creative ideas for her new lingerie line.

"Photographs of Eastern Europe in the '30s and '50s, Playboy magazines from the '50s and images of a young Jane Birkin (were my inspiration)," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling net-a-porter magazine.

The supermodel turned designer added that she's a great fan of vintage clothing and wanted this to be reflected in her new range for Triumph.

Her designs, some of which are created using handmade lace and others embellished with Swarovski crystals, were first unveiled last Autumn but have only just gone on sale in stores.

The range includes bras, knickers and camisoles - some in neutral and dusky hues, others in seductive black and further pieces use art-nouveau-inspired print.

Mother-of-one Christensen looks stunning with an enviable flat stomach and slim legs, as she poses in the range herself.
