Fashion: For the fairest of them all
Is your underwear drawer more holey than holy? Then lucky for you that the Greco-Austrian designer Marios Schwab has teamed up with Asos to launch his debut lingerie line, Kallisti, which translates from Greek as "For the fairest".
Pieces come in statement shades of berry, mustard, midnight-blue and poppy-red and feature Schwab's trademark touches such as power mesh, spider-web embroidery and metal plating. Perfect for your inner gladiator-slash-burlesque dancer. And who doesn't have one of those?
Kallisti at asos.com launches tomorrow

Louisa Rose Allen, 22, is supporting Marina and the Diamonds on tour and appearing on next year's big dance albums from Rudimental, Sub Focus and Gaga collaborator Zedd. Nice statement fringe, too.
