by HELEN MASTERSThere is no doubt that since I wrote my last London Briefs column – ‘The AW20 London Lowdown’ – life has changed for us all.
Like everywhere else in the world, the UK entered lockdown at the end of March and is only now tentatively emerging. UK lingerie stores closed their doors for the longest period we have ever known and as I write, have been open less than a month.
So, what will the future hold?… ...Read more

I’m always on the hunt for lingerie that’s inspiring or unusual because it brings me great joy to share these findings with all of you! Recently, I came upon this image of Threnody in Velvet wearing HERVÉ by Celine Marie and it immediately became one of my high priority discoveries to share.
This isn’t the first time I’ve been quick to share the work of HERVÉ by Celine Marie. In fact, I first featured the brand in our Gallery over a year ago.… ...Read more

For the past few weeks, I have had the urge to highlight On Gossamer’s mesh panties. I’ve written about them before for a bevy of reasons, one of which is that they are a mainstay in my dresser drawer. I have had them on my mind lately because during the past few months, they have been a saving grace in my underwear wardrobe. I wore them regularly throughout the New York lockdown this past spring. When your world demands comfort, these panties are salvation.… ...Read more

The Muse – Inner Freedom – Demery Jayne
Demery, a passionate world traveler, interlaces the idea of innate freedom into her awe-inspiring designs. They express her sun-kissed memories of exotic cultures and far away lands. Soaking the sun and the saltiness of the ocean water, Demery dreamed of her collection while feeling one with the universe.

In the absence of being able to travel to beautiful, distant locations, we can still rely on feeling inspired by images and words. In the case of UK designer Hadley Smythe, her latest collection was inspired by a time and a place; the 1950s French Riviera. More specifically, her designs were inspired by one of her favorite books, the 1954 Francoise Sagan novel Bonjour Tristesse.
Dramatic and luxurious, Hadley Smythe swimwear features ultra-feminine shapes that accentuate the curves of the female form and by default highlight a woman’s sensuality.… ...Read more
