Natural Robe and PJ collection from Ellipse Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

For me, though my mom has been gone for over 30 years, Mother’s Day remains a floral reminiscence. For as long as I can remember, on this holiday, I gave her a single yellow rose, her favorite. My mother loved gardens. After my parents sold our family home, she was always pilfering from mine: bouquets of tulips, daffodils, forsythia, peonies and of course my roses. After she died, I planted two flowering pear trees in my yard: one in her honor, the other for my newborn son with whom I was pregnant when she passed on.… ...Read more

Ellipse Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

In the interest of Nature, the quest for a more sustainable future and a nod to Mother Earth, lingerie holds a formidable position in the fashion world this year. Flowers are always relevant but it is how they are interpreted that empowers the story. The 30+ year old Colombian based Ellipse Lingerie brand, which I have already recognized for their beautiful bridal lingerie, peaks my interest each season with their unique design aesthetic: a tongue and cheek combination of sass and seduction.… ...Read more

Ellipse Bridal Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

We flew to Southern California this past weekend to attend the wedding party of my son’s sister-in-law, Megan Best. In true Megan style, it was just a whole lot of fun; a block party held outside her family’s home with 200 people eating, drinking and dancing in the street. Casual as it was; a buffet style barbecue, wine and beer stations, a candy bar, ice cream carts and even a bouncy house for the kids, there was also a chorus of groomsmen, bridesmaids and a vintage style wedding dress.… ...Read more

Only Hearts Animal Print as seen at Curve NY for Spring 2020 as featured on Lingerie BriefsOnly Hearts

Curve NY wrapped up last week and as I always do, I spent 3 solid days at the show. It was definitely more robust, with an interesting layout and meaningful seminars. I received healthy feedback. The mainstream brands dominated the venue showcasing their current product perspective. For my part, there was a definitive macro message: Comfort first and foremost: in bras, shapewear, panties, and particularly lounge. Simplicity dominates design.

Technology is a game changer affecting every aspect of Intimate Apparel Development: fabrics, trims, cups, wires, and construction like this example of Le Mystere…

 

Sustainability, Inclusivity, and Transparency are the current call to arms.… ...Read more

Simone Perele bodysuit spring 19 at Curve NY on Lingerie BriefsSimone Perele

I have just spent the past week de-briefing from my 3 day marathon at Curve NY. Siphoning through 500 photographs now culled down for this article I have come to some conclusions on what is happening as we head into the fall 18/spring 19 lingerie season. I have heard much about the multi-billion dollar Lingerie industry in the past few years: the shrinking vendor structure, which is true, as well as the lack of innovation, which is false.… ...Read more
