Temper Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

There’s no reason why black lingerie gets to have all the fun! It turns out that all-white lingerie can be equally sexy, and can forego the typical classification of being “bridal”.  UK designer Amelia Firth-Waugh has created the brand Temper Lingerie as a way of reinventing the role of white intimates.  It’s no surprise that her creative influence and professional background includes internships at Chromat (see some similarities?) and Alexander McQueen, and a design position with Reckless Wolf.

The self-described opulent brand is inspired by New York architecture with select pieces that have hidden beaded constellations.  Who knew looking at Beaux-Arts buildings could inspire a lingerie brand?  But then again, when considering the magic of NYC, it’s completely understandable.

These images are from the debut SS16 collection, which is currently available for special order.

untitled-12Catherine D’Lish worn by Dita Von Tisse

There are robes that we mere mortals wear, and then there are robes that the likes of Dita von Teese, Jean Harlow and Loretta Young wear (or wore).  As you will see, the two are worlds apart!  Of course the focus of today’s post are the glamorous satin and feather-trimmed robes of yesteryear along with some striking vintage-inspired styles that are available today.  It’s ironic that the dressing gowns these ladies wore in the privacy of their home rivaled the decadence of the clothes they wore out!   The common theme in all of these designs is the pairing of luxurious materials, and I have extra love for anything with feather trim.  It is wonderful that contemporary designers/brands such as Catherine D’Lish, Gilda & Pearl, Emerald and Palm, and Betty Blue’s so perfectly … Read more

Cristina Aielli Couture Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

I often feel that the word “couture is overused by designers to describe their work.  After all, it means “the design of fashionable clothes to a client’s specific requirements and measurements” and we know that is frequently not the case.  The word alludes to luxury and exclusivity, which explains why it is too often used to elevate the perceived quality of a brand.  However, there are designers like Cristina Aielli that have earned the right to its use.  Each of the garments from her eponymous label are exclusively made-to-measure and handcrafted in Italy.  When you see the intricate patterns Cristina Aielli magically creates with lace, you will understand just how necessary this is.  Each piece is created using a combination of Italian Chantilly lace, silk and tulle to create the illusion of a pattern suspended in mid-air.  Custom measurements are required … Read more

Margarita Mermaid Swimwear on Lingerie Briefs

Admit it, at one point or another in your childhood you fantasized about being a beautiful mermaid.  When I was 7-years-old, I dressed as a sparkling mermaid for Halloween, likely inspired by the hit movie of the time Splash.  My mom and grandma were quite clever creating the costume, using a bright bathing suit of mine as the costume’s base, adding a seashell bra and wrapping my lower torso in green fabric with painted fish scales.  Fast-forward many years later, and once again I am able to dress as a mermaid and it also involves swimwear.  That’s where Margarita Mermaid comes in.  It is a delightfully whimsical brand of swimwear featuring designs inspired by mermaid essentials; seashells, starfish and sparkles.  NYC-based designer Margarita “Mermaid” officially launched her label in 2012 with an Etsy store, and now has a full-fledged website that … Read more

AmphiFulFru_LingerieBriefs

As a fan of graphic art design and advertising, I experience such joy when I see the two smartly combined.  It’s especially fun when I see the world of lingerie creatively revealed in this format.  If you spend time on Pinterest like I do, you can discover thousands of inspiring works of graphic art that expertly speak volumes with just a nuance, an expression, or even a trick on the eyes.  When creativity and brilliance combine, a timeless campaign is born.  Here are a few examples of bra and breast-related images that I found smart, cheeky, often food-filled, and definitely worth sharing!

Les Jupons deTess_LingerieBriefs

Les Jupons de Tess is what we consider a “boutique label”, meaning it’s a luxury product intended for someone with discriminating taste.  More specifically, it is a sensual lingerie brand with a refinement and sophistication that is meant to evoke18th-Century style.  That being said, the use of ruffles and ribbons (that were associated with fashions of that time) are a constant in each collection.  This Parisian label (whose name translates to “Tess’s petticoats”) aims to offer designs that tastefully mix seduction and grace, and it is clear they have hit their mark.

We are thrilled to be able to provide a preview of what’s in-store for the Les Jupons de Tess in 2017.  Here is a peek at our favorite looks from the two collections they make: LJT by Les Jupons de Tess (identifiable with its light colors, lace and … Read more
