Swim Briefs ~ Fleur of England

March 21, 2017

I flew back to Cabo Saturday night and I am going through a bit of an outer body experience. This is the first time that the transition doesn’t feel like the great escape. I am a bit jet lagged- daylight savings time hasn’t started here yet- and I am pretty much in the same frame of mind I left in NY; creatively blocked. For anyone who is a writer, this is not a happy place. . .Learn how Fleur of England’s stunning new resort-wear changed my state of mind. READ and SEE more here

Dita Von Teese Lingerie is Back in Town

March 17, 2017

Dita Von Teese Coquette Bra on Lingerie Briefs

A few weeks ago, I was invited by Dita Von Teese and her lingerie partners at Anderson Brockhurst to see her sold out appearance at the Gramercy Theater in downtown NYC. I have seen some pretty edgy shows in my time, but I had never seen a live Burlesque show. I was in for a treat: vaudeville, saucy dance, glittery costumes, and in your face comedy.  Dita’s act, The Art of the Tease, proved once again why she is internationally lauded for this genre. Luxurious, spellbinding sets enhance the slow, deliberate and sensual style of her performance. The female body is transformed into a fearless, moving work of art. She is the quintessential lingerie icon.

That’s why when her young brand disappeared from the market radar last spring; there was a deep sigh of disappointment, particularly by the retailers that had experienced the incredible sell through of her first few seasons. Suffice it to say, these things happen in business.  But after a reorganization of infrastructure while maintaining her original first class sales, design and production team, Dita Von Teese is back in town. Dita’s hand is, as always, clearly embedded in the product. She has applied her amazing eye for glamour with the same attention to detail that delivers her star quality acts. Despite the fact that the new intimates are stunning, one more beautifully wrought than the next, it is, in my opinion, the panties that speak to my retail value instincts. They are collectibles, a worthy reflection of Dita’s sensuality, strength and hardworking character. Available from XS – 4XL, I see them as their own statement that when merchandised together have multiple unit sale’s potential. An “I deserve this” pick me up, they are a delicious slice of spice.

Two Sides to the Equation ~ Fleur’t & Fleur’t with Me Lingerie

March 14, 2017

Fleur’t & Fleur’t with Me

This weekend I will be crossing the perennial bridge between New York and my home in Cabo. The experience is always the same, no matter in which direction I am traveling.  Ensconced in my routine here in the northeast, I feel removed from my Mexican lifestyle. And even though it will be nice to escape the winter weather, it also means missing work events and leaving my kids. Shifting back and forth from two very distinct environments can be disruptive, but it’s a way of life I pursued.  Changing gears can also be very productive, providing insight and perspective; ultimately enabling growth.

Fleur’t & Fleur’t with Me

I have been mulling over this concept, as I often do when I am about to depart my current comfort zone. The process reminds me of the transition occurring right now with the Fleur’t and Fleur’t with Me brands. A realignment of company ownership (Montelle Intimates is now the sole proprietor) has allowed reorganization of the design and marketing structure and as a result, a clear new product direction for both labels. From my perspective, the creative platform connecting these two collections is that of East coast sophistication (Fleur’t) meeting West coast casual comfort (Fleur’t with Me). Both Fleur’t, reflecting its NY chic and Fleur’t with Me co-oping the California lifestyle, are the result of designer Laurence Béliveau’s youthful insight into a modern woman’s evolving needs. By creating distinct profiles for each brand, Laurence’s quest is to elevate retail interest to new levels. Judging from the non-stop traffic at their booth at Curve, I would say she has succeeded.
