YOLKE on Lingerie Briefs

The concept of the matching silk pajama set is hardly new, so how is it that YOLKE makes it so fresh and covet-worthy?  The secret seems to be twofold; the designers specialize in contemporary, playful silk prints and they have successfully branded themselves as a luxury label for the lady who is part refined fashionista, part tomboy.  Whether it’s a pajama top, lounge pants or a pajama (pyjama) set, each piece is beautifully tailored and timeless.  Not only are these pieces aesthetically pleasing, designs are made from crease-resistant stretch silk, so you appear crisp and comfortable while you wear them.  The ladies behind the label (Temperly London veterans Ella Ringner and Anna Williamson) seem to be stylists at heart as their lookbook gives us a taste of how the pajamas should be worn at home, and how they can be mixed to show off as ready-to-wear.  If … ...Read more



“Outrageously Adorable” is the term that comes to mind when thinking of Glitter and the Moon.  This vintage-inspired label from the UK is where kitsch meets glamour.  It’s without a doubt a brand that is overflowing with frothy ruffles, dreamy chiffon and wonderful whimsy!

Established in 2015, many of the pieces by Glitter and the Moon are embellished with sequins, beads and embroidery illustrations that range from cocktail glasses, dice, and beauty salon products to burlesque girls, love letters and hearts.  There seems to be embroidery that suits the needs of every girly-girl, and to top that off, you can add your name and initials for personalization of many of the designs!  I’m swooning at the thought!  Even brides are encouraged to personalize items from the Fairytale Bridal collection with their name and wedding date.

Naturally when you slip into one of these retro-styled pieces, you … ...Read more


Isosceles Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

For some women, myself included, beautiful lingerie can serve as a wonderful mood-boosting pick-me-up.  When I know I have a special day ahead, I tend to select a special lingerie set to match the occasion.  Or sometimes I plan my outfit with the intention of showing just the slightest detail of my bra underneath.  With Isosceles Lingerie, you can’t help but want a reason to share the vibrant story these designs tell!  Each piece beckons for attention in the most sophisticated way, whether it’s from the dazzling neon color palette or the artfully placed geometric lines of the designs.

Morúa Corsetry & Couture



To be able to design and create lingerie is one thing, to have the skills and training to design corsets is quite another!  That is why when we discover a talent in the old world craft of corsetry:  it typically involves someone who has very specific training and tailoring expertise.  It is no surprise that Gerry Quinton, the force behind the brand Morúa, is precisely that person.  With an education beginning in fashion design at Columbia College (where she received prestigious awards for design excellence), Quinton moved to the UK to work as a pattern maker and study antique corsets in the archives of the Museum of London.  Her background and technical training was just one part of the formula to create Morúa, the other was Quinton’s intrinsic talent and artistic vision.

Currently based in Chicago, Morúa offers bespoke designs and fitting services for ladies … ...Read more



The world of luxury lingerie continues to reveal new talent, and it appears this year’s newer notable is E.L.F. Zhou London.  This fashion-forward intimate apparel label features daring silhouettes and cutout details to create a full ensemble worthy of any seductress!  The designer, Elf Yue Zhouhas, created this avant-garde bodywear brand in 2015 with the intention of merging lingerie with ready-to-wear.
