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

Beware…this will be one of those “all over the place” blogs but if I am successful I will spur a bit of sensory curiosity.  Last week I took a chance and registered for a seminar given by Trend Union with the special guest being a fascinating woman named Betony Vernon, a self-described “sexual anthropologist”.  We were a small group who gathered in a West Village Brownstone garden, drinking wine on the nearby river as the sun started its slow descent. I admit I had never heard of Betony but the evening sounded interesting and I thought “why the hell not?”.  Rather than explain who she is, I invite you to google her and explore on your own.  I mention her because … 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

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

Seamless intimate apparel is the “lovechild” of hosiery and lingerie. It’s also the name of one of my favorite songs by the Supremes.  I’ve taken note over the years how powerful lingerie companies like Spanx and Commando have entered the hosiery market. Melding the technology of hosiery machines with the design detail of lingerie has become lucrative and without the yarns and technology developed by the hosiery industry shapewear would be all seams and discomfort.

In my early days while I shopped in Europe I was a hosiery junkie, buying Fogal and Wolford hosiery every time I touched down in London or Paris.  These two brands in particular were pioneers and introduced me to luxury for the legs.  I love Fogal for … 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
