Olivia von Halle Pagoda Motel Collection on Lingerie Briefs

Olivia von Halle is one of those brands that raise the bar each season, creating luxe loungewear collections that are consistently paired with decadent campaign images.  This season’s Pagoda Motel Collection is no exception, with its exotic, bold prints and colors presented in an avant-garde setting. The current campaign is described by the brand as Familiar yet unknown; it has a dreamlike quality. Within it, three heroines at the centre of a mysterious drama captivate their audience. Yet, they are indifferent. They are uninhibited. They are Galliano’s 90s Geishas, on acid.”

For the past 7 years Olivia von Halle has been creating chic pajamas and robes for her eponymous label, with its most identifiable style being the classic Coco Chanel-inspired silk PJ set.  The Coco set is still offered, and gets reinvented each season with eye-catching prints; this time it’s the prowling tiger print (amongst other … ...Read more


Velvet Crush ~ CAMI NYC

CAMI NYC featured on Lingerie Briefs

Sometimes it’s not such a bad thing for retailers to start selling holiday items (ahem, Christmas) as early as September. Granted, seeing those huge inflatable Santa Claus lawn ornaments at Costco is obnoxious, even in December. But there are brands that market themselves just right, and who show up at stores at the perfect time in a way that ignites excitement about the changing seasons and serves as a reminder of why we hold the holiday season so dear. For me, that is precisely what happened seeing the new Fall ‘18 velvet collection from CAMI NYC.

The latest collection has taken the best-selling classic silk shapes the brand is known for and reinvented them in decadent velvet. The skillful combination of velvet and lace increases the glam-factor for a brand already known for its sophistication and elegance. In addition to the use of velvet, the current … ...Read more

Violet & Wren Luxury silk loungewear Spring 19 collection as featured on Lingerie Briefs

This time last year we featured Violet & Wren in the Gallery  and it’s a pleasure to be able to follow-up with what is up-and-coming next season from this luxury label.  Described as “British, botanical loungewear with a passion for everyday luxury”, Violet & Wren specializes in silk creations such as robes, pajamas and chemises that feature custom hand-painted illustrations.

For Spring/Summer 2019, those illustrations are light and floral (with a classic stripe option in the mix).  Known for its dramatic prints, the brand’s design team (founders Louise Barnard and Helen Pollington) pride themselves on creating collections that work as luxe loungewear that can be accessorized to wear outside the home.  This is an on-going trend that sophisticated fashion aficionados always seem to be able to pull off.

While the following images are a sneak peek at 2019, we certainly recommend that you take a look at … ...Read more

Preview of Marlies Dekkers Spring/ Summer 2019 lingerie campaign on Lingerie Briefs

If these images are any indication of what to expect for lingerie industry at large in 2019, we are in for a treat!  The latest Marlies Dekkers campaign, for Spring/Summer 2019, is delightfully cheeky and presents us with a collection inspired by renowned chef and TV trailblazer Julia Child.   Additionally, the talents of famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth were put to task in order to perfectly capture the playful, erotic femininity of the new designs.

As if that were not enough, one of the featured models is pin-up pro (and one of my absolute favorites) Mosh.  Only the best of the best have come together to present a collection by a designer so many of us have loved for years.  After all, Marlies Dekkers is the pioneer of the strappy bra design.

All of this excitement comes off the heels of the brand celebrating its 25th...Read more

Randy Mora for Suki Cohen as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Perhaps when you think of swimwear from South America, you may envision heavily-patterned, colorful barely-there styles created by a label based in Brazil.  It’s a fair assumption, considering it’s mainly what we’ve seen over the years.  It is also because of this, it’s a refreshing surprise to discover South American luxury lingerie and swimwear brand Suki Cohen.  Manufactured in Colombia (in a fair trade factory), Suki Cohen creates minimalist, geometric-inspired pieces using durable, high-end fabrics.

The brand’s designer, Sarah Cohen, studied fashion design in Sao Paolo, Brazil, which may explain her expertise in creating swimwear (even though she started out exclusively creating lingerie).  Whether swim or lingerie, all of the styles are wireless and unpadded, so as to work with a woman’s natural form.  The embellishments are minimal (mainly cut-outs and straps), the swimwear coverage steers clear of vulgar, and patterns are only … ...Read more
