Savoir Faire ~ French Lingerie

This fashion editorial, shot by Stephanie Hynes during her recent sojourn in Paris is a testimonial to French lingerie.  Through her unique lens, she addresses the question: Why is French lingerie so revered? To us, the answer is intrinsic in the DNA of the French culture. Every facet of daily life is infused with the pursuit of pleasure; the French way of doing things caters to the senses. Some call it “savoir faire”. We call it the art of seduction. From the Baroque style of the Palace of Versailles to the translucent elegance of I.M. Pei’s Pyramid at the Louvre, the French design ideal is captured in Stephanie’s photo essay. Replete with light, gorgeous underpinnings and chic locations, these images reflect our interpretation of luxurious lingerie. They are also homage to women who understand that real beauty is best portrayed in how one feels inside. That is why, for centuries, French women have worn beautiful underwear simply to empower themselves.

We begin our journey in a classic french Pied à Terre . . . . .

In search of a theme for our holiday lingerie fashion editorial, Stephanie and I wanted to stay true to our creative aesthetic. How classic is the Nutcracker Suite! I suggested a story about the intimate world in which the dancers live while they are backstage in rehearsal and during the performance. Thirty two brands contributed to this visual panorama of exquisite intimates photographed to capture the symbiotic relationship between lingerie and the ballet. Our principal model, Laura Hess, is a former prima ballerina and has performed in The Nutcracker. She is joined by other professional dancers. The logistics of this shoot proved challenging as we lost our initial stage venue on the East Coast and were forced to move to Minneapolis for the final work. But in her inimitable way, Stephanie pulled it off. This is our gift to our readers and our brands for Holiday 2018. Let the season begin!

Lingerie Minimalism

A fashion editorial series by Stephanie Hynes & Lingerie Briefs

Wacoal everyday bras on dancers on Lingerie BriefsWacoal

“Minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, where the work is set out to expose the essence, essentials or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features or concepts.”

Walking around the Curve show with Stephanie last month, I mentioned that the emerging story that I perceived was the focus on basic essentials, simple shapes whose function was to provide supportive and flattering silhouettes without fuss. I tagged it Lingerie Minimalism.

In America, the everyday t-shirt bra and panty remains a dominant piece in a woman’s underwear drawer. In the current environment, a major statement by many brands is the reinforcement of their essential bra styles. Updating componentry and creating linear visuals bring a fresh perspective on these established collections.

What better way to show the versatility of a basic than to photograph it in movement. We used two professional dancers, Vie Boheme and Jocelyn Iris Rajkumar, currently touring with the National Production of West Side Story. Shooting them in original dance positions, Stephanie was able to highlight the beauty inherent in clean unadorned form. The artistry of dance has long been associated with the flow of the human body. Dance releases us from the stresses of everyday restraint and elevates our sense of well-being. September’s Lingerie Fashion Editorial is all about the freedom that our undergarments should create.

In Part Two of our July Fashion Lingerie Editorial, Stephanie brings her camera indoors. In Part One, she shot her vision based on the illusions framed from natural light: the American impressionist painter Frederick Carl Frieseke was her inspiration.  These images, photographed in her studio, evoke clarity of light effused from the simplicity of their surroundings. The color white is both innocent and provocative.  In an artist’s hands, white takes many perspectives. Is white lingerie meant only for brides?  This has often been the perception in America. But in Europe, white has long been status quo for everyday basics and sensual fashion pieces. Do brides only wear white? Perhaps the touch of something blue answers the question.

Inspired by the American impressionist painter, Frederick Carl Frieseke, Stephanie’s July Fashion Editorial (Part One) is not only an ode to summer brides, but also a visual play on the effects of summer light. Frieseke is known for painting early 20th century women outdoors in dappled light. These women would often steal away to find respite under a willow or by a body of water, relaxed and free and unrestrained from the layers of clothing that fashion demanded.

Stephanie states “I wanted to play with these elements to create an ethereal mood, one that suggests a mirage in the heat of summer”

To capture this, Stephanie plays with the color white through a simmering lens. The lingerie transforms into an images of romance, desire and delight.

Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James
