A Whale of a Bra ~ Empreinte Cassiopée Spacer

Whale watching in Cabo San Lucas on Lingerie Briefs

I went whale watching this past weekend determined to see one in the wild, since I have not had the pleasure since I began living here in 2011. That’s because the season peaks in early winter, good for tourism, bad for me. I am always away, in Paris, NY and the rest of the lingerie market, hunting and gathering product information while the rest of my friends take countless sojourns into the ocean to site these magnificent beasts. The water’s around Cabo San Lucas are a migratory destination and breeding ground for many species. Witnessing these humpbacks in the wild breaching the ocean’s surface, swimming with their young or just rising for air before the inevitable dive is poetic. These 40 ton mammals are incredibly … Read more

The Naked Experience

March 24, 2017

Naked brand's Luxury Spa Robe on Lingerie Briefs

For 10 years of my career, I worked for an Istanbul based intimates company who, at their peak, owned over 50% of the robe quota from Turkey to the USA. Suffice it to say, I learned a few things about the robe business, in particular, the terry robe business.  From a layman’s point of view, a terry robe might seem to be a fairly simple garment: It’s more often than not a white wrap toweling fabric that envelops the torso with the help of a self-belt.  But, having serviced the sales of multiple retailers, none quite as demanding as the Victoria Secret’s production team when they were selling over 500,000 units a year, there is a great deal more to the business than meets the … Read more

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 hereRead more

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.
