    CDM The Lingerie Lesbian Blogger

    This week, the Coco de Mer team welcomed lingerie blogger Caro as she made her first visit to the Covent Garden boutique.

    Creator of The Lingerie Lesbian, New York based Caro is hailed as one of the best lingerie bloggers today, despite her site being only a year old.

    Caro's busy schedule keeps her days filled with exciting lingerie adventures, and with a British journey planned, the team were delighted to learn she had made time for her very first Coco de Mer experience.

    Spanking expert and Salon teacher Allison England gave Caro a tour of the boutique. Sale sections, luxury and erotic lingerie, silk sleepwear, bedroom arts, leather bondage, cutlery, books and more were all shown to Caro. Quite an expert herself, she was familiar with the majority of the stocked lingerie brands, yet discovered a few exciting extras to consider for future projects.

    A huge thank you to Caro for visiting us, we hope you enjoyed your visit, and you're welcome back any time!

    Coco in Cosmo

    Last month, Coco de Mer invited one of Cosmpolitan's editors to attend our most popular Salon class with resident fellatio expert Master Dominic. 'Playing the Flute: An Oral Sex Masterclass' is the store's most sought-after event and offers a light-hearted environment in which to learn about the art of giving the perfect blowjob.

    Cosmopolitan magazine is the top lifestyle publication for women, which talks openly about relationships and sex. In this article, the editor shares her personal fears, experiences and the reasons why she decided to attend, making it highly relatable. The full-page review highlights memorable moments such as practical exercises with ice lollies, and sums up the top tips shared by the oral expert.

    Master Dominic is a professional Dominant and sex expert, running a successful Dominant business in East London. He is described as "sensitive, funny and a genuine expert" by Cosmopolitan. Coco de Mer couldn't agree more!

    The beautifully bound volume looks utterly exquisite in our sumptuous store, and there are a limited number of signed copies available to purchase for those unable to make it to the signing.

    Undress to Impress: Coco de Mer's London Fashion Week Closing PartyLast night Coco de Mer and hat designer Victoria Grant hosted a London Fashion Week closing party at one of London’s hottest new clubs, Tonteria on Sloane Square.

    Beautiful models paraded the club dressed in lingerie by Coco de Mer and hats by Victoria Grant and whilst the temperature was rising in the club, guests cooled themselves down with refreshing frozen strawberry margaritas courtesy of Tonteria.

    The fact that it is London Fashion Week was not forgotten and mannequins were scattered throughout the club showcasing Coco de Mer and Victoria Grant’s AW13 collections.

    Entertainment came in the form of burlesque artist and model Beau Rocks (pictured) who wowed the guests with her sizzling striptease.

    Guests included many of the fashion industry’s movers and shakers and familiar faces at the party were the suitably sexy Ashley Roberts and Kimberley Wyatt from the Pussycat Dolls, model Max Rogers, American actor and model Tyson Beckford, Ollie Locke and Cheska Hull from Made in Chelsea, Radio 1 Extra presenter Sarah Jane Crawford and BBC actress Lisa Greenwood.

    Guests were treated to a very special goodie bag at the end of the evening which included a selection of naughty treats from Coco de Mer and beautiful silk scarves by Age of Reason.
