It was the last minute of the last day of the last (Feb 2020) Salon de Lingerie show in Paris. I was on the way to the coat check to retrieve my belongings and exit the exposition when I passed the Calida booth and stopped dead in my tracks. It wasn’t the end of show champagne that did it. It was the gorgeous visuals that leaped out at me showcasing the Viktor and Rolfe collaboration with Calida, the premium underwear label. I felt that old surge of discovery and begged a few minutes with the European reps to learn more.… Read More

Mollie Blue is an independent British designer I’ve been following since I first saw her student work back in 2017 – I had a feeling she was going to go on to create beautiful things, and I wasn’t wrong! She’s now the founder of Mal Amora, a handmade intimates and bespoke corsetry brand that’s inspired by the meeting point between modern sustainability and retro fashion.
Mollie’s obsession with lingerie began after discovering that it was underwear, corsetry and crinolines that gave the haute couture gowns and historical garments she admired so much their shape.… Read More

I began following We Are HAH’s sustainable journey shortly after they launched their lingerie and sleepwear lifestyle collections in 2015. In fact, we highlighted the brand in 2019 after I spoke with founder Sharleen Ernster, a major force within the Conscious Capitalism movement. I was impressed with her #startssomewhere motto and its truth to consumers about the unique obstacles the lingerie and swimwear industry confronts in its drive to produce a product that is earth friendly.

In my opinion, it is the soul of this company that sets it apart.… Read More
I was recently introduced to the Lejaby Inspire collection, Maison Lejaby’s new brand initiative that launched this fall in Europe. English speaker that I am, I assumed, especially after viewing the product, that the label meant Inspire, as in to influence, arouse, affect. But I was wrong. In French, the word inspire means breathe.
It makes a lot of sense. The entire collection, coming to America for Spring 2021, is meant to capture the pulse of a modern woman’s life. Lejaby Inspire is all about movement, spirituality, comfort, and wellbeing.… Read More

I spent all day today reading the news and feeling like the world is falling apart. We’re on T for hurricane names and it’s only September and whole states (and the wildlife and habitats they contain) are on fire. When I was a child people frequently talked about climate change like something far off. It was an issue from a sci-fi novel or the cause of the apocalypse of a movie that was mostly fictional. It never occurred to me that as an adult it would be front page news and a regular part of my life.… Read More

During the Covid19 lockdown, restricted to my neighborhood in Connecticut, I was re-introduced to the exquisite floral evolution of the Northeastern USA springtime. I had not seen it in 7 years as I am usually in Mexico. Walking daily from mid-March on, I have witnessed a daily explosion of color, taking the time to actually “see” natures amazing kaleidoscope. In fact, I have incorporated some of these images in our Instagram juxtaposing the poetry of nature to the poetry of lingerie.
This theme resonated when I first spoke to Georgia Larsen, founder of Dora Larsen Lingerie.… Read More
