Helena Christensen At London Fashion Week – the 44-year old Danish supermodel was at the Maison Triumph event on Valentine’s Day at the start of London Fashion Week.
Helena was keen to talk all about her line of lingerie for Triumph which she helped design. She has worked with the company before and was previously involved with another range of lingerie for them as well as being photographed by Rankin in 2010 to show off the 27 different entries for the Triumph Inspiration Award.
Triumph are this year’s official lingerie sponsors for London Fashion Week so we will seeing plenty of their knickers and bras over the next few days as they are being featured in around 30 different shows over the course of the event.
Helena has talked about how the Playboy magazines of the 1950’s as well as some early images of a young Jane Birkin were her inspiration for the new lingerie collection. She also talked about her love of vintage clothing and how this had influenced her styling.
Helena said: “I adore Vintage lingerie – the intricate details, the way there was so much love put into making pieces, when it was sewn by hand. I’ve got a lot of vintage pieces, but I don’t wear them as they’re built for a different shape. They had really pointy boobs back then!”
ALthough she is well-known as a catwalk supermodel there are still plenty of people whose favourite memory of her is of her appearing in the video for Chris Isaak’s song Wicked Game in 1991. This was shot in Hawaii in black and white by the renowned photographer Herb Ritts and featured a topless Helena rolling around in the Hawaiian surf with Chris Isaak. The video made sure the song was a big hot for Isaak and ended up being voted as the Number 13 Top Video of all-time in a VH1 poll.
Here are some photos of Helena modelling some of her new lingerie range.
