A little addendum on last month’s Kilo Brava campaign. I am a product of the Boomer generation, but I pride myself on keeping abreast of the cultural vibes in the younger cosmos. I really can’t avoid it as my staff tends to be half my age. I find it amusing that they refer to icons of my youth as retro, even vintage. So, when Kristin Bear told me that the inspiration behind her new velour collection was the Sopranos, well, like it or not, I couldn’t resist this post.… Read More

Anti-Chinese Rhetoric from political leaders and mass media outlets have directly and indirectly fueled racism and xenophobia. Physical attacks on Asians and people of Asian descent have spread with the Covid-19 pandemic. Bra companies such as Anita Since 1886 USA are doing something about this one step at a time!
Not only does Anita Active sports bra and sports tights line give the best maximum support to our bodies, they are also giving their support to the hard hit Chinese American Community.

I kicked off the fall season recently at the 59th NY Film festival, where after the screening of the opening night movie “The Tragedy of Macbeth” I found myself attending the after-party at Tavern on Green, standing next to Frances McDormand.… Read More

Almost anyone I ask seems to have a story about the legendary Hanky Panky® thong. Just yesterday, my business partner Shirley and I were reminiscing about this iconic lace panty celebrating its 35th anniversary this year.
I remember some time back when my daughter was just 16, my husband, while sorting the laundry, lifted a purple lace thong from the basket. Befuddled, he asked me what it was. Never mind I said, I will take care of it and proceeded to tell Maria that she would have to do her own laundry henceforth.… Read More
