Andres Sarda Fashion Swimwear on Lingerie Briefs

Somebody at Andres Sarda must have been listening to Olivia Newton-John’s “Physical” on repeat while creating this runway collection.  Inspired by all things 1980s, the Spring/Summer 2018 swim collection was heavily styled with legwarmers, shoulder pads, Robert Palmer-esque models (remember “Simply Irresistible”?), and bold colors.  If you’re able to look beyond the eye-catching details that make this runway show as period-specific as it was, you will see the foundations for a classic swimwear collection.  Striped and solid bikinis and one-piece suits are the first layering component for each look, and part of the collection that will be available at a retail level.  Granted, if you’re looking for ways to dress up your beach attire, this show is filled with creative ideas!  Every F/W and S/S season, Spanish … Read more

Luna Mae London Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Oh, Luna Mae London, you have outdone yourself!  The latest campaign for their Bespoke collection is simply stellar; at least according to someone like myself who loves when lingerie and ballet combine.  The images are particularly enticing because what would normally be seen as a gorgeous, luxury lingerie collection is presented in a beautifully sophisticated way.  Editorial and fashion photographer Richard Bernardin captures Swedish model (and mother!) Caroline Winberg looking elegant, and quite frankly, flawless in every shot.  Only the best of the best paired together to present a collection of Bespoke (aka made-to-order) intimates.

Italian silks, Chantilly laces and everything in between come together to create something exceptional.

All of the styles featured here can be selected for a custom-made set that is handmade to … Read more

Lingerie brand Maison Nouvelle was born out of Dutch designer Maaike Nieuwenhuis’s fascination with craftsmanship.  Granted, all of the designers we feature here in the Gallery are committed to quality craftsmanship, but Maison Nouvelle takes it one step further.  Every piece is made to order, specific to your measurements and needs.

Many of the items on Maison Nouvelle’s website are ordered according to your body measurements (rather than standard sizing), along with any personal needs you might desire beyond size.  Each online purchase is produced within a 14-day timeframe and shipped to the customer…but the journey doesn’t end there!  If for some reason the lingerie does not have a perfect fit, the design team will either allow for a return to make the proper adjustments or tailor … Read more

Superbe Paris lingerie in The Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

I never met a sparkle I didn’t like.  In fact, when I attended the Salon International de la Lingerie with Ellen (January 2018), I was frequently adding animated sparkle effects to many of the Instagram Stories I was posting, simply because on social media more is more.  One of the brands I discovered in Paris that takes the same approach when it comes to its abundance of gold, glitter and sequins is Superbe.

Designed in France “for all womankind”, this creative, punk rock chic label specializes in creating eye-catching panties.   Created in sizes XS-XL, the underwear materials range from gold lame, velvet and sequins, to cuts that are high-waisted and regular-rise.  There’s no room for shrinking violets here; these panties are meant for under … Read more

Lenny Niemeyer 2018 Swimwear collection on Lingerie Briefs

Just last week we had Tina’s blog post make mention of the Almodóvar film “Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!” and then there was Holly’s guest post featuring strappy bondage-inspired bras, and here we are with this week’s post that borrows references from both.  The Brazilian swimwear brand, Lenny Niemeyer, is a luxury swimwear label that specializes in glamorous looks with distinctive style elements.   This eponymous label creatively applies linear and geometric motifs to many of its styles; resulting in strappy swimsuit designs unlike anything we’ve ever seen.  Additionally, many of the designs are architecturally inspired, as evidenced by the clean lines on its swimwear that are created with a clever usage of straps, ropes and knots.   There are even a few styles that are distinctly … Read more
