The most outrageous and exuberant lingerie in the world comes from a place youd probably never expect: Syria. Adorned with everything from faux fur, artificial flowers, and feathered birds to plastic toy cell phones, these intimates flash lights, play music, even vibrate. Well known across the Middle Eastin Syria the lingerie forms an important part of the folk tradition around trousseaus and weddingsit is openly displayed in the markets and souks. Authors Malu Halasa and Rana Salam have brought together a diverse and dramatic collection of photography and writing, including the voices of Syrian women, celebrating this little-known niche of fashion design in all its playful glory.
London-based journalist Malu Halasa is the author of several books on art and culture. Rana Salam is an acclaimed graphic designer. She has lectured and exhibited internationally. She lives in London.
