One Legging at A Time

By TINA WILSON

I ADORE LEGGINGS! They can be a dresses’ best friend or a t-shirt’s worst nightmare.  When I first started wearing leggings way back in the day when hair was poufy and high; they came in one length, they had no tummy control, they couldn’t heat you up or cool you down and they had no pockets.  The only holes in them were caused by your thighs rubbing together and they mostly came in Black.  Leggings were supposedly not worn by the ‘fashionable’ crowd and mocking someone for wearing them outside of the gym was not uncommon.

Wearable Art ~ MENG

By ALISON CONNOLLY

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

Fashion Illustrations by Tina Wilson on Lingerie BriefsI believe by the turn of this century there will no longer be categories of clothing, no sportswear, no intimates, no outerwear, we will have 7 articles of clothing, period …I will be dust by then and it’s probably just as well but in the meantime I will happily prepare for the inevitable and so should any forward thinking designer or retailer of apparel.

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

Summer Whites

By TINA WILSON

As much as I am loving the summer, I’m rather looking forward to Fall and all it brings…but wait not so fast.  Let’s talk about the color white, this is the best time of year to wear it, whether it be a crisp cool shirt or an off the shoulder ruffled top (wish I had a dollar for every one of those I see on the street) or anything in crinkled gauze embroidery.  It’s also about to get thoroughly nasty, clammy and exceptionally smelly here in NYC as we approach August, I can feel it and as incongruous as it is to wear white in that scenario, it really does keep you cool and it gives the perception of being clean and … 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
