HERVÉ by Celine Marie as featured in the Gallery on Lingerie Briefs

I’m always on the hunt for lingerie that’s inspiring or unusual because it brings me great joy to share these findings with all of you!  Recently, I came upon this image of Threnody in Velvet wearing HERVÉ by Celine Marie and it immediately became one of my high priority discoveries to share.

This isn’t the first time I’ve been quick to share the work of HERVÉ by Celine Marie.  In fact, I first featured the brand in our Gallery over a year ago.… ...Read more

Hadley Smythe swimwear & bodywear as featured on Lingerie Briefs

In the absence of being able to travel to beautiful, distant locations, we can still rely on feeling inspired by images and words. In the case of UK designer Hadley Smythe, her latest collection was inspired by a time and a place; the 1950s French Riviera.  More specifically, her designs were inspired by one of her favorite books, the 1954 Francoise Sagan novel Bonjour Tristesse.

Dramatic and luxurious, Hadley Smythe swimwear features ultra-feminine shapes that accentuate the curves of the female form and by default highlight a woman’s sensuality.… ...Read more

Ruban Noir Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

The Ruban Noir SS20 collection, with its minimalist innovative style, looks like it came to us from the future.  Well, the future with a bit of 90’s inspiration mixed-in, as you can see from a selection of vests, crop tops and biker shorts. But with its sleek no-frills silhouettes, metallic lame accents and graphic color contrast elements, we are undoubtedly seeing a brand that represents a modern world.

The brand’s designer, Stéphanie Weinich, designs for the “woman who questions the traditional codes of sensuality and smartly incorporates her masculine side.” … ...Read more

Maygel Coronel Colombian swimwear as featured on Lingerie Briefs

If it wasn’t already obvious, I have a tendency to feature swimwear brands that are more fashion than function (as in, you’re not going to enter any swimming competitions in the brands I feature), but that’s not to say a brand cannot accomplish both. Colombian brand Maygel Coronel clearly captures the fashion element, but it’s just as functional when it comes to fit, its ability to crossover from swim to ready-to-wear, and its undeniable ability to make a poolside statement.… ...Read more

If you feel like the past few weeks have not been that of Black cultural education and discovery, then you’re missing out.  Focusing solely on the more recent events of the Black Lives Matter movement (specific to late May/June 2020), many of the social media accounts I follow have flooded their feed with resources and links to talented Black educators, leaders, creatives, designers and so forth. … ...Read more

Merle Noir as featured on Lingerie BriefsPhotographer @violainechapallaz, Makeup @liselottevansaarloos,
Styling @astridschilders for @janesvanity

Who are the designers or brands that stop you in your tracks while scrolling Instagram?

For me, it was recently Merle Noir. Or more specifically, it was the Hanako chemise (above) by the designer featured on (online boutique) Jane’s Vanity Instagram feed. It’s remarkable how exceptionally fine craftsmanship can capture your attention, even with just a fleeting chance!

I have actually featured this Dutch brand here in the Gallery before and considering over three years have passed since I last wrote about them, they were due for a revisit.… ...Read more
