Apilat Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Our niche in this Gallery is representing luxury lingerie from designers around the world, and this week we present the Ukrainian brand Apilat.  Founded as a wedding dress label in 2012 by sisters Galyna and Lyubov, it has since added bridal lingerie to its offerings in 2015.  Consistent with most bridal lingerie designs, their works are sensual, traditional and romantic, but what sets them apart from the mainstream is their precise handwork and use of exceptional fabrics.

As you will see from the images below, Apilat’s use of lace and how it is paired with silk is striking.  According to the website’s product descriptions, the designers use Chantilly lace, but their prices are considerably more reasonable compared to other lace-heavy luxury … Read more

Wearable Art ~ MENG

MENG silk printed robes and pajamas on Lingerie Briefs

We are no stranger to the concept of luxury lingerie when it comes to our Gallery posts, and today’s feature on the U.K.-based brand MENG is no exception.  MENG is a contemporary luxury lifestyle brand with a heavy emphasis on Asian-inspired prints and styles that are tailored to suit the sophisticated woman’s taste.  If you are familiar with the label, which is sold at Selfridges, Neiman Marcus & Harrods (to name a few), then you know that its specialty is in kimono and pajama designs that are essentially wearable pieces of art.  With that in mind, the brand is taking a slightly different approach to its SS18 collection.  It’s focusing on a category between the worlds of loungewear and ready-to-wear by adapting … Read more

Reard Swimwear on Lingerie Briefs

Here’s a bit of swimwear design trivia for you:  The bikini was invented in Paris by Louis Réard in 1946 following the end of World War II.  At the time, this radical design was intended to reflect the new attitude of women who were feeling liberated and strong following the war.  That brings us to another piece of swimwear trivia: The bikini was named after Bikini Atoll, the test site for the atomic bomb located in the South Pacific.  Needless to say, the reaction to this two-piece design was explosive!  In fact, it marked a definitive shift in the covered-up world of women’s fashions.  It wasn’t long before Hollywood embraced this skin-baring style, and created icons out of the women who wore … Read more

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 … Read more

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 … Read more

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 … Read more
