Christine Lingerie Moonlight Collection in printed Silk Chiffon as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Going back to my college roots where I majored in Art History, I have always recognized that creativity presents itself in many forms. My attraction to the Christine Lingerie brand is anchored in the compositions of her exquisite prints and the extraordinary tailoring of Christine’s designs. They are intimate keepsakes. Women collect them. The embodiment of elegance, they can be defined by refined grace, and simple style. Once again, this season, I … Read More

Christine Silk Loungewear Seascape as featured on Lingerie BriefsSeascape

I am certainly not the first person to use the term “wearable art”. However, season after season, when I see the Christine collection, this is the only phrase that comes to mind. I am sure it’s because Christine, artist that she is, designs the prints herself. Applying them to a canvas of luscious silk from which she creates her signature loungewear shapes, she has, through the years, curated a legacy … Read More

Christine Silk Faberge Devore velour kimono and Diva chemise in Purple Passion as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Recently, I took a trip to the Met Cloisters in NYC. The venue is not new to me but having just finished the biography of John D Rockefeller and reminded of his son’s obsession with medieval art, I was anxious to see, once again, the renowned Unicorn Tapestries.

Christine Silk's Morton Men's Silk robe collection as feature on Lingerie Briefs

The Phoenix silk robe by Christine silk on Lingerie Briefs

In a culture dedicated to simplicity and price, I have begun to muse about the position of silk lingerie in today’s evolving shopping environment. It brings back memories of my early days (the 1980’s) in Intimate Apparel, when, at the helm of the Macy’s private label initiative, I was tasked to research the rise of a business whose momentum was just picking up. The business was silk. The front-line was at Victoria’s … Read More

By ELLEN LEWISChristine Lingerie Dark Romance silk print on Lingerie Briefs

I know I am a bit late to the party, but recently, I have been binge watching Game of Thrones, having missed the craze when it was peeking. My husband thought it wouldn’t appeal to me as I have a deep distaste for gratuitous violence and sex in films. But I am fine with it when it weaves the very fabric of the tale setting the course for the dark romance between … Read More

Detail of Chihuly glass ceiling installation on Lingerie Briefs

I remember earlier in my retail career, whenever I felt too bogged down in paperwork, I would abandon my desk and re-merchandise the selling floor. It was like mental yoga, balancing color and form without compromising focus on key items. The challenge refreshed me. Today, a little under the weather and on a publishing deadline, I decided that the best salve for my current physical and mental challenges would be to soak in a little … Read More
