BATH, England — Lovehoney has introduced its latest brand collaboration — the Coco de Mer Pleasure Collection of seven luxury toys and six “essentials” that celebrates the lives of the world's most famous femme fatales.
The range, created in conjunction with exclusive erotic brand Coco de Mer, was inspired by some of history’s grand-dames of seduction, including Nell Gwynne, Georgiana the Duchess of Devonshire and Catherine Howard.
Coco de Mer, best known for its luxury erotic boutique in London’s Covent Garden district, says it turned its attention to wholesale in order to share the reputable products with other retailers around the world.
Coco de Mer’s Managing Director Lucy Litwack said, “We are thrilled to be able to partner with Lovehoney on this exciting range and bring the exquisite Coco de Mer Pleasure Collection to other stores.
“This is one of the most luxurious and decadent collections of pleasure products we have ever created. We are entering a new era of opulence with lovers of sensual joy sparing no expense in finding pleasure products of the highest luxury.”
The new range has been beautifully shot by renowned photographer Rankin. The shoot, entitled “Exquisite Curiosities,” captures the sensuality of the Pleasure Collection in a series of elaborate glass domes and gilded cages.
The Georgiana G-Spot Vibrator is named after Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, notorious for her whirlwind love affairs, the company says. Georgiana features a curved form that directs sensations to a woman's most intimate pleasure spot.
The Catherine Pleasure Balls Set are in memory of Catherine Howard — the fifth wife of Henry VIII who was beheaded for her adultery with the king's favorite courtier, Thomas Culpeper. They come in three different shapes with graduated weights to tone and strengthen the pelvic floor.
The Nell Pleasure Seed Vibrator recalls the life of Charles II's long-time mistress, Nell Gwyn, who was regarded as a living embodiment of the spirit of Restoration England. She grew up in Covent Garden, near Coco de Mer's erotic boutique in central London. Inspired by the erotic shape of the coco de mer seed, Nell's form is designed for clitoral enjoyment. The Nell Pleasure Seed is available in silicone and also in limited edition gold.
The Nell Pleasure Seed in Gold is encased in 18-karat gold plate and presented in an artisanal wooden box with gold detailing.
The Emmeline Pleasure Wand gets its name from the leader of the British suffragette movement, Emmeline Pankhurst. Its slender silicone body and spherical tip sends rumbling and insistent stimulation through the slim shaft to the G-spot.
The George Vibrating Cock Ring is inspired by George Eliot, the male pseudonym for Mary Ann Evans, one of the Victorian era’s leading writers..
The Emma Pleasure Egg remembers Emma, Lady Hamilton, most commonly known as the mistress of Lord Nelson. It is a sleek love egg that delivers vibrations via a wireless remote control.
The Pleasure Collection also includes a range of massage oils, massage candles and an orgasm balm.
The range’s packaging has won an D&AD Yellow Pencil Award, among other awards, the company says.
Litwack added, “Everything about the range oozes decadence. Based around the idea of exploration and discovery, encountering the unexpected, and using Coco de Mer’s famous heritage prints, the packaging features a seductive peep-hole, subtly teasing people with the erotic prints that lay behind.”
The range will debut at the eroFame show in Hannover, Germany.
Lovehoney international sales manager Kate Hodgson-Egan said, “The Coco de Mer Pleasure Collection combines sensuality, fashion and erotica to form a decadently heady mix.
“We have focused a lot of our attention on luxury items this year and can’t wait to share all of our exciting new products with trade customers at eroFame.”
