Introducing Out of the Box Elegance ~ Rya Collection by Flora Backer

February 24, 2017

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

A Love Story ~ Samantha Chang

February 14, 2017

Samantha Chang on Lingerie BriefsToday is Valentine’s Day, a universal tribute to love. For me, it has been celebrated in 3 stages: childhood, youth and as an adult. Most of the journey was about giving and getting: heart shaped cards on white doilies gave way to candy, flowers and more.  But it took 5 decades of living and 35 + years of marriage to finally define what a woman really loves; respect in the pursuit of individual passion. Devoting oneself to something uniquely fulfilling is the best gift of all.

I chose Samantha Chang’s Love Story robe to honor this holiday because the product itself tells Samantha’s personal love story. Her work reveals her understanding of the art of making lingerie. The precious details crafted with a loving … Read more
