For Love & Lemons Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Prepare yourself to be dazzled, because the Holiday 2017 Skivvies collection from For Love & Lemons is out, and every detail is spectacular.  The collaborative efforts between the designers, the stylists, the photographer (and so forth) has resulted in a campaign that is pure eye candy.  It’s not your cliché red & green holiday colors, but just as rich as something you would expect this time of year with its decadent abundance of lace, sequins, velvet trims and satin ruffles.

The lucky ladies behind this must-have brand, Laura Hill and Gillian Rose Kern, are best friends who had a lemonade stand together as children growing up in the Midwest (USA) and now design the line together (hence the name, For Love & … Read more

Akiko Ogawa Lingerie in our Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

If you are familiar with my Gallery posts, you know I enjoy discovering talented lingerie designers from around the world.  Today’s post is no exception as I present Akiko Ogawa, a lingerie designer from Japan whose eponymous label specializes in pieces made using in high-grade Japanese lace.  Ogawa is no stranger to the world of design, having launched her clothing label over a decade ago.  It wasn’t until 2016 that the lingerie label was created, as an outlet for the designer to create pieces that were exclusively feminine and sensual. We saw them in Paris and were instant fans.

The images in this post represent a sample of each group that has been designed over the past year.  Akiko Ogawa clearly … Read more

Fashion Illustrations by Tina Wilson for Halloween: Alexander Mcqueen on Lingerie Briefs

Halloween. When I came to the decision to dedicate this blog to Halloween I had no idea what the actual subject would be.  It stressed me out for a few days, I only knew I wanted it to be about corsets.  Back when I used to dress up for Halloween, it always involved a corset or bustier.  Nurse with corset, witch wearing corset, genie with corset, the list is long.

One night shortly before the blog deadline I was sitting on my sofa looking for inspiration, sifting thru my coffee table books on Basquiat, the 80’s NYC club Area, Schiaparelli, and Vionnet and then it hit me, and it hit me hard.  McQueen, Alexander McQueen.

Rosamosario Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

What Rosamosario brings to the world of intimate apparel is something utterly inspiring!

I am pleased to say that my former boutique (Faire Frou Frou) was the very first store in the U.S. to launch this label 10 years ago, and it makes me proud to see that it has not only grown and evolved, but it’s thriving amongst its exclusive circle of fashion-loving fans.

My mom and I got to know Carlotta Danti, the young Italian force behind Rosamosario, during her early visits to Los Angeles.  During that time we discovered that this was a talented businesswoman with a zest for adventure, an independent spirit, and a natural ability to make fascinating connections with high profile people.  Fearless is another word … Read more

Apilat Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

Our niche in this Gallery is representing luxury lingerie from designers around the world, and this week we present the Ukrainian brand Apilat.  Founded as a wedding dress label in 2012 by sisters Galyna and Lyubov, it has since added bridal lingerie to its offerings in 2015.  Consistent with most bridal lingerie designs, their works are sensual, traditional and romantic, but what sets them apart from the mainstream is their precise handwork and use of exceptional fabrics.

As you will see from the images below, Apilat’s use of lace and how it is paired with silk is striking.  According to the website’s product descriptions, the designers use Chantilly lace, but their prices are considerably more reasonable compared to other lace-heavy luxury … Read more
