Calida Lingerie Sustainable Nature Collection as featured on Lingerie Briefs

One cannot speak of sustainability in the world of intimate apparel without mentioning Calida. I have focused on this aspect of the brand’s heritage more than once in this column. They have been an industry force in this domain “long before it was cool” Their credo: “Sustainability should not be a fashion, but a promise” is reflected in its many faceted collections.

Lingerie brands worldwide have felt the impact of operating during a pandemic that has influenced everything from supply chains to fashion trends. For the first time since its launch in 2017, Opaak – which is designed in Germany but produced at a specialist luxury lingerie manufacturer in Romania – was forced like many others to develop a collection 100% remotely, without the usual in-person collaboration or factory visits.

Cupro Vegan Silk Loungewear from Commando as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Cupro. The first time I was introduced to this fabric professing sustainable options for the Intimate Apparel industry, I was not impressed. It seemed a bit overbearing to me. Subsequently, I have seen improved iterations, but NOTHING I have touched feels quite like the Vegan Silk Collection from Commando®. Leave it to Commando® to zero in on a textile trend and elevate it to luxury ready to wear status. Sourced in Italy, it is wonderfully lightweight and peachy soft with an amazing drape.… Read More

Sofia Luzon Swedish Luxury Sustainable Lingerie as featured on Lingerie Briefs

One of my very favorite bras in my lingerie drawer is a wraparound-style piece by Sofía Luzón. It manages to be simultaneously ultra-delicate looking and well-enough made that it’s still in perfect condition after years of use. In other words, it’s an excellent example of true luxury and craftsmanship.
