In her own words, here are our taste-maker, Katrina Eugenia’s top lavender essentials for Spring 2018

Lavender Edit board by Katrina Eugenia exclusively for Lingerie BriefsI live in SoHo, New York and Ladurée on West Broadway is more or less a second home. When I saw this Sonny Angel Ladurée Pâtisserie Ornament   of a little baby angel dressed in  a fancy pastry outfit I thought it was the cutest and funniest thing I had ever seen. Somehow, all of them are of male descent, which makes them even more darling and hilarious. I love mine so much I keep it up all year long.

It was love at first site when this gorgeous set in electric lilac from by True & Co poped up as a sponsored post on my instagram feed. I had to have it. I love … Read more

The Commando Bride™ bride on Lingerie Briefs

The minute I saw the new Commando™ bridal underwear collection, I knew it was a winner. The design direction, in tandem with the brand’s quest for modernity is right in line with the evolution in the bridal lingerie industry: simplicity over frou frou. These pieces are fun shower and bridesmaid gifts, particularly for a woman who enjoys tongue and cheek fashion. As owner Kerry O’Brian has said “I want them to smile when they slip on their Commando.”  Who is the Commando bride?  This is my take.… Read more

Hanky Panky & B.R.A. Recycle Agency launch Lingeriecycle™ on Lingerie Briefs

For any of you who read my last blog on Sustainability, you know that this subject has occupied my thoughts for a while now. What concerns me with the new awareness of this issue is the marketers who hawk the concept for the mere sake of sale’s promotion. That is why, in this series of blogs, I feel compelled to highlight brands that have made this a mission from day one. One such example is Hanky Panky whose pursuit of this mission has driven their culture for 40 years. In a conversation with Gale Epstein, partner and creative director, she discusses her belief that we must all be “Stewards of the Earth”. On a personal note, I can vouch for Gale’s dedication to this credo, not … Read more

Pool at Ventanas de Cabo in Cabo San Lucas by Ellen Lewis on Lingerie Briefs

Sustainability: what does it really mean?

I took this photograph in the pool at the Clubhouse where I live in Cabo San Lucas. I’ve looked at this scene multiple times, but never appreciated the message it relays. The earth is blessed with water and sunlight, a rare gift in a universe of endless space where, so far, we have not found additional life. We must make critical choices to preserve our planet for future generations. If we don’t, the beauty we observe here will disappear. Sustainability is a loaded word. And, I have been diving into it lately to grasp which brands are serious and not just proffering from a marketing mantra. When I snapped this picture a few days ago, the fishnet hammock is what caught … Read more

Superbe Paris lingerie in The Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

I never met a sparkle I didn’t like.  In fact, when I attended the Salon International de la Lingerie with Ellen (January 2018), I was frequently adding animated sparkle effects to many of the Instagram Stories I was posting, simply because on social media more is more.  One of the brands I discovered in Paris that takes the same approach when it comes to its abundance of gold, glitter and sequins is Superbe.

Designed in France “for all womankind”, this creative, punk rock chic label specializes in creating eye-catching panties.   Created in sizes XS-XL, the underwear materials range from gold lame, velvet and sequins, to cuts that are high-waisted and regular-rise.  There’s no room for shrinking violets here; these panties are meant for under … Read more
