The Falke brand continues to be a North Star in innovation, always striving for excellence in every initiative on which they embark. I for one am addicted to the comfort and quality of their socks.

It’s definitely unlike any lingerie embroidery I’ve seen before.
And there’s a reason for that, as I soon discovered. Each Water Drift piece … Read More

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.
The sustainable pursuit is no small undertaking and Calida has … Read More
