Watch in action, the drawings of Best Supporting Actress ~ Viola Davis
& Best Actress ~ Ruth Negga’s gowns on the Red Carpet.

We watch and we judge. We judged the performances they gave and the dresses they will wear to receive their accolades. I love the Oscars and I don’t believe I have missed….blah blah blah

Swiss Miss ~ Lyn Lingerie

By ALISON CONNOLLY

Lyn Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

It seems as though each week I am covering lingerie from a different country!  Just this year alone I have covered brands from France, Russia, Belgium, Poland and the USA.  So without further ado, this week’s intimate apparel country of choice is Switzerland!  The brand being featured is Lyn Lingerie, which is a bold, modern line that is perhaps best known for its striking bodysuits and ‘crop top’ bras.  I knew I was in good company writing about Lyn, as our contributor Tina Wilson recently selected one of their bodysuits for her Salon International de la Lingerie sketches!

This Zurich-based company specializes in creating high quality, high comfort pieces that feature beautiful details.  I love the mix of strong, modern silhouettes … Read more

Rya Collection by Flora Backer on Lingerie Briefs

This week I had a WOW market day. My friend and colleague Flora Backer (aka founder of Flora Nikrooz) invited me to preview her new brand, the Rya Collection, before she launches next week at Curve NY.  The styles are all Flora at her creative best. She has ventured forth on her own because as she explained to me, she wanted total freedom to create out of the box elegance. Infusing her work with the trademark Flora bridal touch, these designs are unique, feminine, pretty, sleepwear anointed with just the right amount of lingerie drama. Developed and produced completely in her New York City atelier, they manage to combine glamour and value. Flora’s instincts and knowledge of the piece goods market is obvious. There … Read more
