Speranza bespoke bra found on PinterestI found this image on Pinterest and to date it is the most popular picture I have ever posted. I think that it is because this bespoke bra is evidence of the artistic potential of lingerie placed in the right designer’s hands. It is craftsmanship at its best. Have you ever envisioned a bra made of peacock feathers?  Neither had I, until I found this ingenious wonder while trawling through the website.

I love the creativity of the Pinterest platform. We are on 6 sites now, some more robust than ever, but the one site that remains, at its core, a hub of shared ideas is Pinterest. That’s why when an image is saved or reposted, I believe that the purpose is sincere.  It affirms an admiration … Read more


In her own words, here are our taste-maker, Katrina Eugenia’s top lavender essentials for Spring 2018

Lavender Edit board by Katrina Eugenia exclusively for Lingerie BriefsI live in SoHo, New York and Ladurée on West Broadway is more or less a second home. When I saw this Sonny Angel Ladurée Pâtisserie Ornament   of a little baby angel dressed in  a fancy pastry outfit I thought it was the cutest and funniest thing I had ever seen. Somehow, all of them are of male descent, which makes them even more darling and hilarious. I love mine so much I keep it up all year long.

It was love at first site when this gorgeous set in electric lilac from by True & Co poped up as a sponsored post on my instagram feed. I had to have it. I love … Read more

The Commando Bride™ bride on Lingerie Briefs

The minute I saw the new Commando™ bridal underwear collection, I knew it was a winner. The design direction, in tandem with the brand’s quest for modernity is right in line with the evolution in the bridal lingerie industry: simplicity over frou frou. These pieces are fun shower and bridesmaid gifts, particularly for a woman who enjoys tongue and cheek fashion. As owner Kerry O’Brian has said “I want them to smile when they slip on their Commando.”  Who is the Commando bride?  This is my take.… Read more

Hanky Panky & B.R.A. Recycle Agency launch Lingeriecycle™ on Lingerie Briefs

For any of you who read my last blog on Sustainability, you know that this subject has occupied my thoughts for a while now. What concerns me with the new awareness of this issue is the marketers who hawk the concept for the mere sake of sale’s promotion. That is why, in this series of blogs, I feel compelled to highlight brands that have made this a mission from day one. One such example is Hanky Panky whose pursuit of this mission has driven their culture for 40 years. In a conversation with Gale Epstein, partner and creative director, she discusses her belief that we must all be “Stewards of the Earth”. On a personal note, I can vouch for Gale’s dedication to this credo, not … Read more

Pool at Ventanas de Cabo in Cabo San Lucas by Ellen Lewis on Lingerie Briefs

Sustainability: what does it really mean?

I took this photograph in the pool at the Clubhouse where I live in Cabo San Lucas. I’ve looked at this scene multiple times, but never appreciated the message it relays. The earth is blessed with water and sunlight, a rare gift in a universe of endless space where, so far, we have not found additional life. We must make critical choices to preserve our planet for future generations. If we don’t, the beauty we observe here will disappear. Sustainability is a loaded word. And, I have been diving into it lately to grasp which brands are serious and not just proffering from a marketing mantra. When I snapped this picture a few days ago, the fishnet hammock is what caught … Read more
