Shell Belle Couture Bridal Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

I don’t even know where to start when describing the Shell Belle Couture bridal brand. It’s an exquisite, showpiece of excellence, a cornucopia of lingerie detail expertly sewn, and a true paradigm of intimate design. In today’s world held hostage by on-line media the Shell Belle Couture campaign imagery sells its story effortlessly. I can vouch that this is all true because I just saw the new Illusions of Grandeur collection and … Read More

I met Michelle Blenkinsopp-Guild, founder of Shell Belle Couture, shortly after she launched her luxury collection in 2010. I was immediately smitten. Her beautiful bridal designs, created in England, are lingerie masterpieces. Composed with European silks, tulles, and leavers laces, they are heirloom pieces that hark back to a time when precious underpinnings were all the rage.

Other than my own wedding which was so long ago, the details escape my memory, I have only attended one bridal suite pre-wedding regalia. That was recently at my daughter in law’s bequest. There the bride and her attendants, wrapped in specially monogrammed robes, were pampered by makeup artists and hairstylists who morphed them into ladies in waiting.

Handcrafted in England with the finest fabrics, I … Read More

 Shell Belle Couture Speak Easy silk crepe de chine pajama on Lingerie Briefs
There is always emerging talent percolating in the Intimates market and I watch very carefully to see which labels appear to have “legs”.  I tend to wait to see who survives several seasons, ships on time, develops new product with continuity and has a focused vision with customers returning for more.  Those are the collections I like to highlight, because, in fact, they appear to be establishing themselves as true brands worthy of recognition in … Read More

I do. Til death do us part. I pronounce you. I take you. I promise. Happily ever after. Tie the knot. Bliss.

Love and marriage. Spouses, couples, and the ups and downs of matrimony are making the headlines and some big waves. Do you stand by a spouse that encourages and helps orchestrate a government takeover? Do you recuse yourself or better yet resign from the highest court or do you pretend … Read More

Cadolle Lingerie as featured on Lingerie BriefsCadolle

I have decided to split my market report in two parts because the Evolution and Curve NY show, although similar in their color/ print/ and shape reveal, had two very different vibes. To be perfectly honest, timing required that I debrief from the smaller exposition first.  Evolution was a limited array of boutique/ luxury brands portrayed in an intimate space. It started one day earlier than Curve NY, which I will … Read More
