Singer Janet Jackson and fashion designer Bruno Schiavi are to release a new lingerie line called ‘Pleasure Principle’, named after a 1987 Janet Jackson song.

Schiavi has previously released collections with Australian singer Delta Goodrem and actress Priscilla Presley.

According to Reuters, Jackson, 42, said: "You will see a lot of satin and lace combined and rich colours such as burgundy and beige, silver and peach as well as your classic black and white.

"It makes you feel incredible and offers variety as diverse as the women who will wear it."

The brand's first collection will reach US department stores in November before launching in Australia, Japan and Europe.
