Oscar Wilde said “Life imitates art more than art imitates life”. Venus, the goddess of love and beauty was immortalized in Renaissance art by the famed paintings of Sandro Botticelli: The Birth of Venus and Primavera. The concept of celebrating the female body does not escape analysis. Women have held sway in art for centuries. Could that be why The Maison Lejaby Venus collection in stores now is so captivating?
Botticelli’s goddesses were center stage on canvases of fresco color, embraced by botanical motifs, mythological patterns and shapes. The Venus collection from Lejaby utilizes lightweight laces, flowery tulles, plant design and textural embroidery to showcase this beautiful French Lingerie. The exclusive knit fabric, incredibly soft, has an ultra-soft finish, flat to the touch
The Venus collection comprises 7 styles: 3 bras (A-F, 30-38), 2 panties(XS-XL), a bodysuit and cami t-top (XS-L). Absolutely perfect for private showings, these styles are also worthy of display at any venue where fashion rules.
It’s particularly prescient that Maison Lejaby, a French legacy brand, has just introduced size extensions in their bestselling NuFit collection. This 7 piece lingerie collection has integrated seamlessly into the American intimates psyche by recognizing the importance of larger cups to the US consumer, while still insuring that the brands inherent French design chic is storied in every shape. It’s this grasp of the intimate’s landscape that has helped to inform the Lejaby stature at better retailers worldwide.

I had to write one more blog about my daughter’s wedding, which happened this past Sunday. It was elegant, ephemeral and exquisitely executed. White and blush peonies and roses, a harpist and a gorgeous wedding cake told a perfect parable for not only the beautiful bride but also the Maison Lejaby Oui bridal collection. Exquisitely appointed with detailed perfection, this wedding capsule is an intimate jewel. Besides the excellence of the Maison Lejaby workmanship, the delicate french lace and pleated silk trim, each style could be saved for posterity. My husband and I were thankful for our children’s happiness. He describes the feeling as a comfortable bliss, worthy of the investment: a special moment that brands itself into our memory; almost priceless.
