Undress Code featured in The Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

Looking through the S/S2018 images for Undress Code, I can’t help but smile.  I feel as though the entire campaign was made with me in mind:  the geometric artistic direction in each photo along with the playful contrasting color palette, and the modern designs of the collection itself. Think of Mondrian, a 20th century pioneer in the evolution of figurative painting to abstract form.

The focus of the brand is to create collections that are powerful and feminine, and with its bold lines and unfussy style, it appears to do just that.  Each piece is designed to be worn on a daily basis, and considering most of its designs are seamless, you really have no excuse not to wear it.  The entire collection is meant to be convenient to wear without compromising style, which is essentially what most women want in … Read more


F.R.S. For Restless Sleepers on Lingerie Briefs

Let’s face it, we’ve heard quite a bit about the trend of wearing pajamas as outerwear, but it can be a bit daunting for the average woman to pull off.  Many luxury PJ brands do a beautiful job styling their designs to create inspiring ready-to-wear looks, but for some of us (ahem, myself), styling PJs as outerwear ends up looking precisely like that; simply wearing pajamas outside the house.  That’s where F.R.S. (For Restless Sleepers) comes in to save the day.  In my opinion, it’s mainly an outerwear brand that has a loungewear-inspired look (and not the other way around).  There’s just a bit more structure in the pajama-looking styles that distinguish this label as something meant for outside the bedroom; it looks like an intentional loungewear-as-outerwear ensemble.  Notice how you see traditional pajama details like piping and matching patterned tops … Read more


Le Petit Trou Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

I recently had the pleasure of joining Ellen at last month’s Salon International de la Lingerie, and what an awesome opportunity it was! I had previously attended the show a handful of times when I owned my lingerie boutique, but this time had the luxury of participating as a spectator, capturing eye-catching collections on my camera for Lingerie Briefs’ social media.  Of course, my former participation as a buyer came right back to me, and I had a slight tinge of remorse over no longer having a wholesale license to engage in my typical buying style of “one for me, one for the store…”.  One such brand that had me feeling particularly eager to write an order (all for me) was Le Petit Trou.

I featured this Polish lingerie brand on Lingerie Briefs one year ago, and am pleased to show … Read more


Vannina Vesperini fashion show in the Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

If you’ve been following along on this blog and on social media, you know that the Lingerie Briefs team recently had the pleasure of visiting Paris to view the upcoming Autumn/Winter 2018 lingerie collections.  This is a big week for the intimate apparel industry, with plenty of fanfare, an incredible tradeshow (Salon International de la Lingerie), parties and dazzling runway shows.  One such show was the AW18 “Dessous-Dessous” presentation by French lingerie veteran Vannina Vesperini.

A common golden thread ran throughout the upcoming collection as evidenced by plenty of gold lace trims and gold lamé fabrics.  There was no shortage of decadence on display either with python-print and jewel-toned satin, feather capelets and even a marabou fur-trimmed camisole!  Ultimately, all of these new textiles were used in combination with classic shapes that are part of Vannina Vesperini’s signature style.

Effortless Cool ~ Asceno


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, Poppy Sexton-Wainwright and Lauren Leask, and they are a wonderful … Read more
