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.

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 … Read more


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 … 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 … Read more


Be Dazzled ~ Taryn Winters

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 … Read more
