Summer Whites


Tina Wilson Fashion Illustrations on Lingerie Briefs

As much as I am loving the summer, I’m rather looking forward to Fall and all it brings…but wait not so fast.  Let’s talk about the color white, this is the best time of year to wear it, whether it be a crisp cool shirt or an off the shoulder ruffled top (wish I had a dollar for every one of those I see on the street) or anything in crinkled gauze embroidery.  It’s also about to get thoroughly nasty, clammy and exceptionally smelly here in NYC as we approach August, I can feel it and as incongruous as it is to wear white in that scenario, it really does keep you cool and it gives the perception of being clean and put together.

With white comes a few old rules that seem archaic now, one being you must wear nude underwear when wearing white.  And yes … ...Read more


Voiment Intimates on Lingerie Briefs

It’s very encouraging seeing the new talent that’s emerging within the lingerie industry.  One such talent is Yuman He, an honors student from London College of Fashion who recently debuted Voiment Intimates as part of her graduating class final presentation.  This brand is not currently offered in stores, but the following images give you an idea of what the designer is expected to launch on her website (which is currently under construction).

Essentially, Voiment is a concept capsule collection of avant garde intimates and swimwear with a projected launch date of Winter 2018.  In the meantime, here’s a taste of what to expect from yet another member of this year’s LCF graduating class of fashion visionaries (we recently featured fellow graduating LCF classmate brand “Lily Rouse” in our Gallery).  How wonderful that there are education platforms that so beautifully assist students in creating such professional fashion portfolios!… ...Read more


Rose Fulbright Hand-Painted Silk Loungewear and Beachwear on Lingerie Briefs

If you have been a fan of Lingerie Briefs for some time, you are likely familiar with Ellen’s appreciation for hand-painted silks, and how art is interpreted into fashion.   Knowing that makes this feature on British loungewear & beachwear label Rose Fulbright that much more meaningful.

Hand-painted prints are at the core of every collection, with a distinct inspiration for each season’s patterns.  Launched in 2013 as a lingerie label, the designer found her niche in 2015 with the launch of her Tropical collection that used paintings by Rose Fulbright’s grandmother.  Since then we have seen seasonal collections that range from bright and summery to dramatic and seductive.  Right now, considering we are in the midst of swimwear season, I just wanted to focus on the warm-weather, beachwear styles.

All of the prints you will see are hand-painted, which makes this brand wearable art that will be … ...Read more


Tina Wilson sketches Christine Vancouver silk on Lingerie Briefs

Beware…this will be one of those “all over the place” blogs but if I am successful I will spur a bit of sensory curiosity.  Last week I took a chance and registered for a seminar given by Trend Union with the special guest being a fascinating woman named Betony Vernon, a self-described “sexual anthropologist”.  We were a small group who gathered in a West Village Brownstone garden, drinking wine on the nearby river as the sun started its slow descent. I admit I had never heard of Betony but the evening sounded interesting and I thought “why the hell not?”.  Rather than explain who she is, I invite you to google her and explore on your own.  I mention her because she inspired me to get in touch with my senses.

Lily Rouse London on Lingerie Briefs

If you were a super fan of the show Sex & the City like I was, then you may be familiar with the following Carrie Bradshaw quote from the series finale: “I’m someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other-love”.  How does that apply to this blog post?  Just replace the word love with lingerie.  It pretty much describes the type of work you will see from the soon-to-be-launched brand Lily Rouse, London.  It may not be your basic underwear that goes with every outfit, but it’s incredibly special and completely essential to any fashion-lover.

Currently Lily Rouse is a concept collection by designer Georgina Lily Rouse, who is an honors fashion contour student at the London College of Fashion.  It’s remarkable how evident it is that one’s calling should be in lingerie design.   Her work displays a creative use of … ...Read more
