The Future is Bright ~ Voiment Intimates

July 9, 2017

By ALISON CONNOLLY

Voiment Intimates on Lingerie Briefs

It’s very encouraging seeing the new talent that’s emerging within the lingerie industry.  One such talent is Yuman He, an honors student from London College of Fashion who recently debuted Voiment Intimates as part of her graduating class final presentation.  This brand is not currently offered in stores, but the following images give you an idea of what the designer is expected to launch on her website (which is currently under construction).

Essentially, Voiment is a concept capsule collection of avant garde intimates and swimwear with a projected launch date of Winter 2018.  In the meantime, here’s a taste of what to expect from yet another member of this year’s LCF graduating class of fashion visionaries (we recently featured fellow graduating LCF classmate brand “Lily Rouse” in our Gallery).  How wonderful that there are education platforms that so beautifully assist students in creating such professional fashion portfolios!

The following images feature items from a group referred to as “The Scar Project”.

In the meantime, keep an eye on https://www.instagram.com/voimentintimates/ for updates on the official product launch.

Everything’s Coming Up Roses ~ Rose Fulbright

July 5, 2017

By ALISON CONNOLLY

Rose Fulbright Hand-Painted Silk Loungewear and Beachwear on Lingerie Briefs

If you have been a fan of Lingerie Briefs for some time, you are likely familiar with Ellen’s appreciation for hand-painted silks, and how art is interpreted into fashion.   Knowing that makes this feature on British loungewear & beachwear label Rose Fulbright that much more meaningful.

Hand-painted prints are at the core of every collection, with a distinct inspiration for each season’s patterns.  Launched in 2013 as a lingerie label, the designer found her niche in 2015 with the launch of her Tropical collection that used paintings by Rose Fulbright’s grandmother.  Since then we have seen seasonal collections that range from bright and summery to dramatic and seductive.  Right now, considering we are in the midst of swimwear season, I just wanted to focus on the warm-weather, beachwear styles.

All of the prints you will see are hand-painted, which makes this brand wearable art that will be treasured for years to come.  For those of you who not likely inclined to lounge in pure silk, the latest season introduces cotton silk separates as a versatile loungewear option.

You can shop the full collection of Rose Fulbright designs, for both men and women, on her website.

I dream of an art of balance, of purity and serenity

Budding Talent ~ Lily Rouse, London

June 12, 2017

By ALISON CONNOLLY

Lily Rouse London on Lingerie Briefs

If you were a super fan of the show Sex & the City like I was, then you may be familiar with the following Carrie Bradshaw quote from the series finale: “I’m someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other-love”.  How does that apply to this blog post?  Just replace the word love with lingerie.  It pretty much describes the type of work you will see from the soon-to-be-launched brand Lily Rouse, London.  It may not be your basic underwear that goes with every outfit, but it’s incredibly special and completely essential to any fashion-lover.

Currently Lily Rouse is a concept collection by designer Georgina Lily Rouse, who is an honors fashion contour student at the London College of Fashion.  It’s remarkable how evident it is that one’s calling should be in lingerie design.   Her work displays a creative use of embellishments (you will see fishing flies on a particular bra), and technical achievements in fabric manipulation techniques and intricate details. The debut collection (featured here) will launch shortly in Autumn 2017, and will likely be a limited offering of couture pieces.In the meantime, start clearing out a special place in your lingerie drawer for Lily Rouse!

G’day iolé Lingerie

June 5, 2017

By ALISON CONNOLLY

iolé Lingerie in the Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

iolé is a new luxury lingerie label from Melbourne,  Australia that specializes in creating pieces that are ethically-conscious and environmentally-friendly.  It’s a brand that you might say specializes in “slow fashion”, which means its designs are not dictated by trends but rather by classic looks that will never go out of style.  Every piece created by iolé is handmade on the day it’s ordered, which means there is as little waste as possible that goes into the manufacturing process.  This also means there are limited quantities made for each collection, which adds an element of exclusivity to their designs.  In fact, this lingerie brand often will use lace that is so exclusive, that only a small number of each garment can be created. What’s unique about iolé is that their team feels so confident about the craftsmanship and materials made to create their products that they offer a guarantee of lifetime sewing repairs on all pieces.  Luckily all of this exclusivity and handmade ordering does not translate to a lengthy turnaround in receiving your order, in fact, the brand commits to shipping out most orders within just 3 days. At this time all orders go through the brand’s website, which offers free express worldwide shipping.  iolé is definitely not only kind to the environment, but kind to its customers!

La Costa Del Algodón ~ La Vie Boheme

May 22, 2017

By ALISON CONNOLLY

La Costa Del Algodón on Lingerie Briefs

Putting together this post involved quite a few “I want that…I need that…how do I not have that?!” moments.  I had the pleasure of recently discovering the Barcelona-based brand La Costa del Algodón, which specializes in loungewear with a vintage-inspired twist.

Flowing fabrics with floral patterns defines this label that creates kaftans, robes and nightgowns that transition beautifully from inside the bedroom to out and about.  The lines between sleepwear and ready-to-wear are heavily blurred, as the founders Chipi Tornos and Isabel Pedemonte explain that “each woman decides when and where to wear our creations.”  The styles are bohemian, a bit beachy and entirely romantic.  You can see the heavy vintage influence in the designs, which results in a collection that transcends time.

It’s worth noting that this label is getting some wonderful media exposure this year, first with an appearance on Nicole Kidman’s character in Big Little Lies, and later this year you will see this brand on the silver screen in The Bookshop on Emily Mortimer’s character.  I will watch the movie based on that tidbit alone!

You can shop the most recent collections from La Costa del Algodón on their website, and in luxury boutiques worldwide (i.e. Jenette Bras in Los Angeles).

Sheer Delights~Botica Lingerie

May 7, 2017

By ALISON CONNOLLY

Botica Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Today’s Gallery features Botica Lingerie, where “nude is the color of the soul”.  Once you see their work, you will understand precisely what this means and how closely the brand abides by this credo.  You will also immediately see that this label represents erotica, the avant-garde and female sensuality.

This luxury label celebrates the ritual of wearing lingerie as “one of the most intimate and erotic delights of a woman”.  That is certainly the case when wearing sheer, second-skin intimates made from silk tulle.

This Madrid-based label is handmade by women and for women, and is designed by Mexican fashion designer Andrea Pimentel.

The collection featured here is called Powder and is inspired by the delights of the human touch, imagining the sensual ways a caress can be desired.

It appears that this debut collection was released a couple of years ago, but continues to be sold today (and the brand remains active on its NSFW Tumblr and Instagram).  Clearly this is a talented, artistically inclined designer, so it would be wonderful to see what new works are in development!  Most recently, you can find Andrea Pimentel modeling gorgeous silk scarves for the Madrid-based brand Suturno (definitely worth checking out, and you may recognize her from images you’ve seen on Pinterest!).
