Cupro, Comfort and Commando®

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.

Toru & Naoko Intimates as featured on Lingerie Briefs

Toru & Naoko is one of the indie brands I’ve been following the longest; I purchased a set from them shortly after they launched in 2014, and have watched the brand evolve from a small Etsy store to an established business within the lingerie industry. And all the while staying true to its original aesthetic. The Kelly bralette I bought is still available, albeit in updated fabrics.

That Toru & Naoko look is all about sheer mesh and soft stretch lace, a (frequently) monochrome color palette, and playing with overlapping panels and negative space to create new and intriguing shapes.… Read More

Calida Collaboration with Viktor & Rolf Heritage X Sustainability Collection as featured on Lingerie Briefs

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

Valentina collection from Mal Amora as featured on Lingerie Briefs

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
