Rossell England Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

It has warmed up considerably here in Los Angeles over the past few days, which has me searching for all breathable cotton-clothing options to kick my summer wardrobe into high gear.  When it’s hot out, we can all agree the simpler the outfit, the better.  Sometimes even forgoing the underwire in your bra adds that extra needed comfort and coolness.

In searching for practical, polished options, I found myself drawn to the summer collection from Rossell England.  The current season features lingerie and loungewear made from lightweight versatile cotton and linen fabrics.

The bright color palette for the summer season is inspired by Expressionist Italian painter and sculptor Modigliani.  Take a look at the powder blue, daffodil yellow and navy styles below, and you may get a sense of where the inspiration played out.  Interestingly, my last Gallery post featuring Undress Code; a luxury intimates brand also inspired by modern art (in their case, it was the work of Wassily Kandinsky).

It’s worth noting that Rossell England specializes in non-wired bras, but they work for sizes A-E cup.  They specialize in using natural fibers sourced from Italy, Switzerland and France that are interpreted into modern clean lines.  Some of the items are wonderfully versatile; wearable from bedroom to beach-side.  Those bow-tie camisoles and chemises are just begging to be shown off while out and about.

If you’re a fan of Rossell England, we’d love to hear what your favorite pieces are.  Or if you’re new to the brand, which items from the summer 2019 collection are speaking to you?

Undress Code, Polish lingerie design brand as featured on Lingerie Briefs

A little over one year ago I had the pleasure of featuring Polish lingerie brand Undress Code here in the Gallery and once more I am fortunate to be able to share their latest work.  In this case, it’s a preview of the Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, which is comprised of a Wintry selection of velvet/mesh/tulle bodysuits, wireless bras and panties.

Each season the designers of Undress Code create collections that are anchored by the work of a particular artist, typically one known for their modern, minimalist and/or geometric style.  In this case, it’s Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky; the pioneer of abstract art.  You will notice that there is just one patterned print in the A/W19 collection, which is clearly derived from one of Kandisnky’s paintings.  The colorful pattern works harmoniously with the other solid-colored pieces, mainly because all of the designs share the same geometric/abstract theme.

All of these pieces were created to style with your outerwear, and as always, comfort is key.  The idea is that you can wear any of these intimates all day, but that they’re comfortable to fall asleep in too.  Isn’t it wonderful Undress Code offers the best of both worlds?  When this season arrives in stores this July, which piece will you make sure to incorporate in your wardrobe?

Jean Philippe Lebee, photographer as featured on Lingerie Briefs

It should come as no surprise that I truly appreciate a good photo campaign when it comes to enjoying a lingerie brand.  In fact, it’s often the first step in grabbing my attention, and I highly value the way it sets the tone and feel for what the designer is intending to convey.  The posts I create for this Gallery are all driven by beautiful images; editorial-style campaigns that make me feel and want!  That being said, I thought I’d take the opportunity to shine the spotlight on the photographer, rather than a particular label.

The photographer being featured on today’s post is the young French talent Jean-Philippe Lebée. His style is elegant and sensual, and influenced by his initial studies in cinema.  In recent years he has been selected by top French lingerie brands such as Simone Pérèle and Ysé to capture their campaign images.  You can identify his work from its subtle colors, and the soft refinement of the women he uses as his subjects.  His work isn’t limited to just lingerie; Lebée’s professional portfolio includes lifestyle and travel photographs as well.  I selected several that work with the theme of Lingerie Briefs, but if you’re looking to indulge more, visit his website: www.jeanphilippelebee.com/

LIVY Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

This post could have been much longer if I shared every item from LIVY that I fell in love with, so I limited myself to pieces from the past year.  Just when I would spot one bra that had gorgeous detailing in the front, I would see an image of its stunning detail in the back…so much to enjoy!  No detail is overlooked with this French luxury lingerie label, which is inspired by “all facets of the 2020 woman”. LIVY is a lifestyle brand that offers not only wonderfully provocative lingerie, but swimwear (called Livystone), ready-to-wear and accessories (leather cuffs & harnesses).  Its name is derived from the first syllables of its founder’s initials, Lisa Chavy; a designer who clearly has an appreciation for architectural details.  She also has a flair for creating contrast in her work by pairing traditional romantic materials like Calais lace with strong, technical elements.  You can even spot jewelry and gold hardware details on select styles, like the gold “monowire” bra which is an unexpected eye-catcher! Nearly all of the lingerie designs are either black or ivory, with a bit of red showing up for some holiday flair, no doubt.  The swimwear collection adds a bit more color, though nothing too flashy (even the silhouettes are quite streamlined). The main takeaway from LIVY is that it’s quite modern, sexy with upscale sophistication, and certainly meant to be shown off. Strictly for the purpose of keeping this post a reasonable length, the images below are exclusively from the lingerie collection.  I encourage you to visit the designer’s website to see the full range of her work!

SIR The Label as featured on Lingerie Briefs

I’m not sure whether it’s the Spring weather or so much talk of Coachella, but these breezy cotton pieces from SIR the Label are really speaking to me lately! Many of you know this cult Australian label as a ready-to-wear and separates brand, but it also has a lovely selection of intimates, many of which work so well as outerwear (just take a look at the images in this post). Established in 2015 by Sophie Coote and Nikkie Campbell, SIR specializes in wardrobe essentials typically made from broderie anglais (eyelet), embroidered cotton and linen (though there are also silk & Lycra styles too).  I think what tugs at my heartstrings is the variety of eyelet patterns and styles.  Of course its feminine, minimalist aesthetic, and versatile mix-and-match separates are a big part of its appeal. Many of the items featured here are from the current season (or at least the past year), and I encourage you to check out their full intimates collection here: See what the land down under has created, odds are you’ll get swept away in their bohemian-styled world!
