Racked National has brought to light that, the next fashion craze inspired by a television show might be pricey lingerie, citing that when Mad Men became popular, fashion followed. Now, British series Downton Abbey is inspiring a new generation of women to invest in lacy nightwear. The London-based lingerie company Lucile reports that their sales have soared as women have started buying the kinds of nightgowns they see on the characters. Pictured here is the Indiscretions Gown from Lucile, priced at £715. [Racked]
