Francis McDormand at the opening of MacBeth as illustrated for Lingerie Briefs

I am beyond excited for fall. It’s a been awhile since the change of seasons was felt by us all as the past 18 months have been a blur. We’re still in the throes of that 5-letter word but I am pessimistically optimistic that sanity will prevail, and we will not be in this forever.

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

Gender Free Lingerie from Cantiq Los Angeles Livi thong as Featured on Lingerie Briefs

I was damn lucky. Lucky to have moved to NYC (too young to vote) at a time when it was fascinating, really scary, and bizarre. I was damn lucky to meet and often become close with people who initially freaked me out…. there was no comfort zone, and it was exhilarating. This was the 80’s, a time when the LBQGT community was more threatened and yet somehow more embraced than now. Doesn’t make sense really but if you were around in the 80’s there was solidarity in the every night-night clubbing, in the glamour of dressing up, and the lack of cash to do any of it… between gay and straight.… Read More

HAPPY DAD’S DAY

By TINA WILSON

“Dad”, that is what I call my father. We all do, all 9 of us. He is also known as Papa. My dad has no interest whatsoever in what I am writing in this blog other than the fact that I am the one writing it. Absolutely no interest in fashion or shopping, which is one of the many reasons I love him. He is, however, a magnet for anyone under the age of 5, he is a contemplative introvert content and even quite happy to always be alone.… Read More

A margarita can be very inspiring, two of them can really get the lime juices flowing.  I was at my local “Cheers” for only the second time in 13 months, Santa Fe. Not the city but the Mexican bar and restaurant on 71rst street and Columbus Avenue in NYC.  It was the most glorious evening and I had not quite dealt with the fact that I had no subject for my next blog, when Laura Bird one of the managers, came over to our outdoor table to chat for the first time in a long time… we started to talk about life and business, as they are two very different things.… Read More

Fashion Illustration of Natori Loungewear as featured on Lingerie Briefs

The contribution to the lingerie industry from Asian cultures is immeasurable. From the kimono silhouette to intricate embroideries or the origins of silk, the list is long. It’s high time to pay homage to Asia, even more so in these extraordinary times. I am not going to “preach” about race based hate and how it has no place in a civilized society; any decent evolved person knows this. The previous administration did not create this hate, it’s been here since the birth of this country, but it certainly endorsed it and made it “okay”.… Read More

History in Black and White

Black History Month and Black owned lingerie companies as illustrated by Tina Wilson for Lingerie Briefs

The second Black queen of England was named Charlotte and she reigned during the Regency era, who knew? Not I, not before Bridgerton. Bridgerton needs no introduction; the gorgeous costumes of the Netflix hit are surrounded by as much buzz and controversy as the ‘Duke’ (his ‘beauty’ often the subject of daily text threads with my women friends). Yes, there are some inaccuracies in time as they relate to what women wore back then, but it’s Hollywood.

Peeling back the layers of those costumes, I wanted to reveal what may have lain beneath them and how they relate to the lingerie of today as represented by Black owned lingerie brands.… Read More

Fashion Illustration, Wacoal America by Tina Wilson as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Giving is the new taking. Each day that passes brings stories of people and companies helping those in need.  I do not know what it’s like to lose someone to this pandemic nor do I know someone who has lost their home, so I am reminded each day just how fortunate I am.  It’s safe to say many of us who have weathered this madness relatively unscathed, are grateful, very grateful. My hope is that most of us have found our own ways to give back, however small the gesture or the pledge.… Read More
