G’day iolé Lingerie

iolé Lingerie in the Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

iolé is a new luxury lingerie label from Melbourne,  Australia that specializes in creating pieces that are ethically-conscious and environmentally-friendly.  It’s a brand that you might say specializes in “slow fashion”, which means its designs are not dictated by trends but rather by classic looks that will never go out of style.  Every piece created by iolé is handmade on the day it’s ordered, which means there is as little waste as possible that goes into the manufacturing process.  This also means there are limited quantities made for each collection, which adds an element of exclusivity to their designs.  In fact, this lingerie brand often will use lace that is so exclusive, that only a small number of each garment can be … Read more

La Costa Del Algodón on Lingerie Briefs

Putting together this post involved quite a few “I want that…I need that…how do I not have that?!” moments.  I had the pleasure of recently discovering the Barcelona-based brand La Costa del Algodón, which specializes in loungewear with a vintage-inspired twist.

Flowing fabrics with floral patterns defines this label that creates kaftans, robes and nightgowns that transition beautifully from inside the bedroom to out and about.  The lines between sleepwear and ready-to-wear are heavily blurred, as the founders Chipi Tornos and Isabel Pedemonte explain that “each woman decides when and where to wear our creations.”  The styles are bohemian, a bit beachy and entirely romantic.  You can see the heavy vintage influence in the designs, which results in a collection that … Read more

Botica Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Today’s Gallery features Botica Lingerie, where “nude is the color of the soul”.  Once you see their work, you will understand precisely what this means and how closely the brand abides by this credo.  You will also immediately see that this label represents erotica, the avant-garde and female sensuality.

This luxury label celebrates the ritual of wearing lingerie as “one of the most intimate and erotic delights of a woman”.  That is certainly the case when wearing sheer, second-skin intimates made from silk tulle.

This Madrid-based label is handmade by women and for women, and is designed by Mexican fashion designer Andrea Pimentel.

The collection featured here is called Powder and is inspired by the delights of the human touch, imagining … Read more

By ALISON CONNOLLY

What started as writing a blog post turned into putting together a wish list of lingerie and loungewear that I can’t live without.  This collection of covet-worthy items on my radar is from NYC-based designer Morgan Lane.

This youthful (i.e. 20-30 something year old) brand is packed with personality, and offers a cheeky take on what’s meant to be “your special secret underneath it all”.  But don’t mistake that playfulness for a lack of sophistication, because each piece is made with impeccable attention to detail using luxurious fabrics and overseen by a designer who has made Forbes’ prestigious “30 Under 30” list.

The brand’s founder Morgan Curtis earned her stripes working for her mother (renowned fashion designer) Jill Stuart, and … Read more

Carine Gilson Luxury Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Whenever I’m in need of lingerie inspiration, my go-to brand is Carine Gilson.  Even though fashion styles come and go, Carine Gilson’s designs remain a constant; which is a good thing considering her works are costly enough to be considered “investment pieces”.

If you’re familiar with the concept of luxury lingerie, then you are undoubtedly familiar with this brand.  In fact, Carine’s eponymous label is the industry standard upon which many other luxury designers measure themselves.  In reality there are only a handful of designers that are fortunate to stand upon the Carine Gilson pedestal, but none of them have surpassed her (yet) in longevity.

This made-to-measure label was founded in 1990, with its first boutique opening in Paris in 2004 … Read more

Kriss Soonik on Lingerie Briefs

I have been a fan of the Kriss Soonik brand for years (even carried the label in my former boutique) so it’s a pleasure to have this platform to be able to share the current collection! The new SS17 season adds sparkle and shine to the familiar styles we love, and also introduces a few new shapes such as the sporty-looking Ilona group. The latest campaign, Caribbean Dreaming, shows us the playful styling options of Kriss Soonik and its appeal as lingerie-as-outerwear.  As usual, we are presented with images that are playful and cheeky, but this season seems especially fun.  The designer’s intent was to create something that reminds us to celebrate the small joys in life.  Kriss shares that “When you … Read more
