Effortless Cool ~ Asceno

By ALISON CONNOLLY

Asceno silk Pajamas on Lingerie Briefs

In terms of style, creating an effortless cool look is a paradox; it’s equal parts polished and disheveled, sophisticated and casual, fashion-forward and laid-back.  The ultimate goal is to look like you weren’t trying too hard, and for some of us it requires trying very hard!   The ladies behind ASCENO have achieved that perfect balance with their designs.  ASCENO is a contemporary sleepwear and swimwear brand that specializes in silk menswear-style PJs for women that blurs the lines between loungewear and ready-to-wear. Based on the inspiring images from their most recent collections, slipping into one of their pajama sets likely helps you channel your inner Cate Blanchett (who, unsurprisingly, with her tomboy chic style is a fan of the brand).

I have had the pleasure of meeting the designers behind ASCENO, … Read more

California Cool – Eberjey

Eberjey Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Given my background in the lingerie industry (having owned the luxury lingerie boutique Faire Frou Frou for nearly a decade), it’s not uncommon for people to still ask where I shop for lingerie or which brands I recommend.  This particularly held true this holiday season, as friends and colleagues were in search of the perfect gift for the special lady in their life.  It turns out that the one brand I consistently recommended was Eberjey.  And rightly so! This brand appeals to me on several levels, but it really comes down to the fact that Eberjey has a delightful balance of designs that are flirty and sexy, but also practical and comfortable.  It’s youthful, but works for practically any age; a romper or bralette/panty for the younger customer, a robe or pajama … Read more

Be Dazzled ~ Taryn Winters

By ALISON CONNOLLY

Taryn Winters Lingerie on Lingerie BriefsA little sparkle goes a long way, at least in the case of lingerie designer Taryn Winters, whose sequin bra design (see image at bottom of this post) caught my attention and stopped me in my tracks while scrolling through Instagram.  I love when discoveries like this happen!  Granted, just because Taryn Winters is new to me, does not mean she’s a new discovery to Ellen Lewis, who had the pleasure of seeing the brand in person at this past Summer’s Lingerie Selection.  Fairly new to the lingerie scene, Taryn Winters is a New York designer whose work is heavily influenced by the world of ballet costumes and her background as a dancer.  A graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology Winters has developed a unique style that is distinguished by … Read more

Coco de Mer featured in the Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

What is it about dark, sultry, sexy lingerie that makes it so perfect for the holiday season? Perhaps because it’s the time of year when we opt for our most elegant wardrobe choices, and special occasions call for special lingerie!  That’s where the signature collection from Coco de Mer fits in perfectly. Certainly many of you are familiar with the Coco de Mer boutique, which specializes offering luxury sex toys, erotic gifts and exquisite lingerie brands.  But perhaps you did not know the boutique also boasts its own line of decadently naughty intimates. The AW17 collection featured here was “designed to empower and excite”, and with plenty of lacy cut-out panties and quarter cup bras, it does just that.  There are 8 separate groups featured this season, each with its own set … Read more

For Love & Lemons Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Prepare yourself to be dazzled, because the Holiday 2017 Skivvies collection from For Love & Lemons is out, and every detail is spectacular.  The collaborative efforts between the designers, the stylists, the photographer (and so forth) has resulted in a campaign that is pure eye candy.  It’s not your cliché red & green holiday colors, but just as rich as something you would expect this time of year with its decadent abundance of lace, sequins, velvet trims and satin ruffles.

The lucky ladies behind this must-have brand, Laura Hill and Gillian Rose Kern, are best friends who had a lemonade stand together as children growing up in the Midwest (USA) and now design the line together (hence the name, For Love & Lemons).  From the beginning, the goal of the designers … Read more

Akiko Ogawa Lingerie in our Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

If you are familiar with my Gallery posts, you know I enjoy discovering talented lingerie designers from around the world.  Today’s post is no exception as I present Akiko Ogawa, a lingerie designer from Japan whose eponymous label specializes in pieces made using in high-grade Japanese lace.  Ogawa is no stranger to the world of design, having launched her clothing label over a decade ago.  It wasn’t until 2016 that the lingerie label was created, as an outlet for the designer to create pieces that were exclusively feminine and sensual. We saw them in Paris and were instant fans.

The images in this post represent a sample of each group that has been designed over the past year.  Akiko Ogawa clearly has a passion for the use of lace, as evidenced … Read more
