I’ve been fishing around the internet today trying to locate tickets to the New York City Ballet’s presentation of Swan Lake. I try to take my daughter to the ballet or her birthday every year, and I know how much she identifies with this story. But of course, because of conflicting schedules all around, we’ll have to make another choice. Nonetheless, the entire search got me thinking about swans, women, Valentine’s Day and Mimi Holliday Lingerie. Swans are majestic birds, an elegant presence floating effortlessly across water and an unexpected force when they take flight. Yet, don’t cross them, particularly near their young. They can get really mean. This duality informs Peter Martin’s choreography. Dancing the part of Odette/ Odile is one of the most technically challenging and emotionally fearless roles in all of ballet. It embraces the swan as a combination of feminine grace and defiant strength.
This brings me to Mimi Holliday’s Swan Lake Collection and its natural affinity to Valentine’s Day. That is to say, this delicate nude mesh bra and panty set is a piece worthy of gift status for a woman who appreciates beauty, individuality and luxury intimates. The exclusive swan embroidery elevates these styles to statement pieces, an expression of the precious, confident and sensual elements of the female character. Available in 32-38, B-F cups and XS-XL, this bra and panty set is the essence of Mimi Hollidays trademark eccentricity. It begs the question: is she Odette or Odile?
