Flawless from Front to Back ~ LIVY Lingerie
By ALISON CONNOLLY
This post could have been much longer if I shared every item from LIVY that I fell in love with, so I limited myself to pieces from the past year. Just when I would spot one bra that had gorgeous detailing in the front, I would see an image of its stunning detail in the back…so much to enjoy! No detail is overlooked with this French luxury lingerie label, which is inspired by “all facets of the 2020 woman”. LIVY is a lifestyle brand that offers not only wonderfully provocative lingerie, but swimwear (called Livystone), ready-to-wear and accessories (leather cuffs & harnesses). Its name is derived from the first syllables of its founder’s initials, Lisa Chavy; a designer who clearly has an appreciation for architectural details. She also has a flair for creating contrast in her work by pairing traditional romantic materials like Calais lace with strong, technical elements. You can even spot jewelry and gold hardware details on select styles, like the gold “monowire” bra which is an unexpected eye-catcher! Nearly all of the lingerie designs are either black or ivory, with a bit of red showing up for some holiday flair, no doubt. The swimwear collection adds a bit more color, though nothing too flashy (even the silhouettes are quite streamlined). The main takeaway from LIVY is that it’s quite modern, sexy with upscale sophistication, and certainly meant to be shown off. Strictly for the purpose of keeping this post a reasonable length, the images below are exclusively from the lingerie collection. I encourage you to visit the designer’s website to see the full range of her work!
