The Vintage Wedding ~ Jacalyn Bennett

January 10, 2016

Untitled-1q

For several years I had the privilege of working with the venerable Jacalyn Bennett, lingerie designer for some of the biggest Intimate Apparel brands in the world. I was sale’s director of her personal label and therefore, had access to an extraordinary vintage lingerie collection housed in her Newburyport studios. Renown for her handwork with lace applique, silk and delicate detail, Jacalyn’s creations were then and are now a homage to the art of sewing lingerie. She is a defender extraordinaire of the virtues of silk and the feminine value in lace against the naked body. Any bride would find the gift of a Bennett underpinning in her trousseau, a rare treat.

There is something timeless about Fleur of England lingerie, at once seductive, always elegant and beautifully tailored. But it is the bridal intimates that evoke the sumptuous images of a champagne wedding. Indulging in the sumptuous silk, bespoke laces and atelier trims, these pieces are exquisite keepsakes worthy of any bride. The creme always rises to the top.

The Modern Bride ~ Tatu Couture™

September 27, 2015

tatu1

I’ve been doing some design prospecting lately, anxious to unearth new artists whose lingerie collections are worthy of note. The bounty has been good. One of the more interesting is Tatu Couture™ , made in the UK under the watchful eye of Luisa Sidoli, honors graduate of the famed “Contours” course at De Montfort University  After some time served in the studios of major established Intimate brands, Luisa launched the Tatu brand in 2012 with her hand cut  illusion lingerie. Although these pieces are also available in a sexy black interpretation, I was drawn to the bold and contemporary statement that the white alternative makes for today’s modern bride. There is no doubt that they make gorgeous luxury gifts, but it is their versatility that interests me. Imagine wearing this bodysuit as part of your wedding attire! That’s 21st century sophistication.

We believe that feeling special is an important element in creating confidence and a sense of well-being. Bridal Briefs pays homage to that quest.
