Bordelle Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

In the world of fine art, there are pioneers whose visions initiate trends and then there are those that interpret their styles. Whole genres are created as a result.  Picasso and Cubism. Monet and Impressionism, Pollack and Abstract Expressionism, Dali and Surrealism. I could go on, but I am sure you get the point. In the world of designer lingerie, Bordelle holds the crown. The impact of their luxury strapping technique has reverberated throughout the industry. What sets Bordelle apart is their ability to sustain the brand DNA,  and still evolve their products from a solitary bondage message to a integrated wardrobe accessory. … ...Read more

Lucy Jones Lingerie silk skater dress as featured on Lingerie Briefs

I’ve been mulling over how to present Lucy Jones Lingerie, the British heritage brand that was re-launched in 2019, 30 years after its original entrance into the luxury lingerie market. Considering the seismic shift in the current retail landscape, one might say that timing is a problem; but I think not. Lucy’s eponymous collection, sold in the 1980’s to a bevy of renown high end stores, was consistently heralded by the fashion press and was a go to choice for celebrities.… ...Read more

Nevaeh Luxury Boudoir Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

In 2013 I met Melissa Franchi, founder and creative director of Nevaeh Intimates, a luxury boudoir collection that completely captures  her perspective on the true essence of lingerie. It is an artful composite of the energy and glamour inherent in the New York City lifestyle: bold, beautiful, erotic, and elegant.

Initially, what struck me most was Melissa’s fortitude. She was working out of a “hole in the wall” office space, more like a closet, while holding a full-time job.… ...Read more

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
