Kilo Brava Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Given that “Tiger King” is the show entertaining the nation right now, it’s perfect (prrrfect) timing that we feature the brand Kilo Brava, whose headquarters is a handful of miles far from the infamous Carole Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue center AND their current loungewear collection features an original tiger print!  Clearly someone was channeling what was going to be big in 2020 (and really, who could have guessed).

Kilo Brava is a lingerie and loungewear brand based in Tampa, Florida created by Kristin Bear, the former head of design at Cosabella. You will currently find 4 distinct collections available ranging from lace teddies and sheer embroidered bras to stretch rib bodysuits and satin pajama sets.

Having just launched in Fall 2019, this new label is already creating quite a buzz.  The prices are reasonable (for example, $34 for the Underwire Bodysuit), the size options are wide-ranging (size S-XXL), and all pieces are ethically and sustainably made.… ...Read more

Say Yes to This ~ NOO

By ALISON CONNOLLY

NOO, a sustainable brand featured on Lingerie Briefs

NOO is a French brand that specializes in lingerie, swimwear, activewear and ready-to-wear, but for purposes of this Gallery, we’re focusing on the intimate(s) side of their business.

In keeping with the theme of sustainability (a new blog category we recently launched at Lingerie Briefs), sharing the story of NOO is something we had to say YES to!  Co-founded by two young women, Anaïs and Elissa, NOO is a company that has a very clear commitment to sustainable fashion.  Most of their materials are re-used (sometimes you’ll see fabrics from older collections show up), many of their lingerie fabrics are produced from recycled fibers, while some of their swimwear ranges are made from 100% green Eco-Wave fabric (made from waste recovered from the Mediterranean).  Even their ready-to-wear pieces are made from a fiber of biodegradable vegetable origin!  There’s actually considerably more to share about their eco-friendly practices (their packaging is made from bioplastics), which we encourage you to visit their website to discover the full scope of their commitment to the environment.… ...Read more

Crème Shanghai lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Crème is a specialty lingerie brand based in Shanghai founded by designer Miya “Crème” Su.   If you detect a strong French influence in Su’s work (particularly if you explore her work from past seasons), then you won’t be surprised to learn that she lived in France for a period of time and clearly absorbed the French attitude toward women and their appreciation for beautiful intimates.

Many of the items shown here are from the current AW19 Portrait collection, which features pieces made from stretch tulle with loosely drawn embroidered portrait patterns.

The bralette shape is at the heart of this brand, along with coordinating briefs and a small selection of loungewear.  The Portrait collection, with its cap-sleeve bustier, appears to be the brand’s first foray into an underwire style. This may be an indicator for an expansion of styles and sizes in the seasons to come!… ...Read more

La Chatte de Francoise Upcycled panties as featured on Lingerie Briefs

La Chatte de Francoise is a panty brand that specializes in “slow fashion, only for cool girls”.  And really, what’s more cool than being a sustainable fashion brand these days? As Ellen has pointed out time and time again in her trend forecasting posts, the concept of sustainability is here to stay.

La Chatte de Francoise was founded in 2013 by musician and DJ Marine Neuilly.  She describes her brand as “the 21st century love child of Andy Warhol and Simone de Beauvoir” and she designs not just panties, but (wet) t-shirts, socks, scrunchies, condoms and more!  All of her panty or “culotte” designs are handmade in Paris utilizing upcycled fabrics. Due to the nature of this production method, all items are limited edition or small batch.

Founder Neuilly represents so much more than her cheeky punk label as she also collaborates professionally as an art director, photographer and magazine guest editor (for Please!… ...Read more

AMAIÒ luxury swimwear as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Founded in 2016 by designer Samantha Khoury, AMAIÒ is a women’s luxury swim & resort wear label based in Los Angeles that specializes in a beautiful space “where swim meets ready-to-wear”.  It is unique from other swimwear brands in that it’s not simply a swimwear label, but instead part of a niche group the designer created called Après Swim.  This means Khoury’s designs are made not just for swimming, but for the social activities that take place after a day in the water.  However, that doesn’t diminish the functionality of her pieces when it comes to the beach or the pool, because garment construction and fit are something designer Khoury prides herself on.

As if the chic garments and beautiful craftsmanship were not enough, AMAIÒ takes the brand’s appeal a step further with a sustainable approach to its “slow fashion” manufacturing process; sourcing fabrics from heritage mills in France and Italy and minimizing waste in every way possible in its Los Angeles facilities (the brand goes into considerable detail on their website under Brand Ethics).… ...Read more
