I saw Lise Charmel’s current bridal collection several weeks ago in Paris. And as one would expect, it is exquisite. This acclaimed French atelier, renown for their handwork with beautiful Calais levers laces and delicate guipure, has always represented, to me, the luxury go to brand for wedding lingerie. Notice the incredibly detailed execution of the embroidery and lace. Now they have introduced a new collection, Dressing Floral which utilizes their expertise with guipure and applies it to a delicate tulle net that seems almost transparent on the silk fabric.… Read More

While I intend to showcase visual highlights mined from the Curve NY show, I have a few macro-observations I want to present. As a merchant, I am not only charged with identifying product with sales force, but also, I must sniff out shifts in consumer interest at a visceral level. This is the lingerie trade show where such vibes emerge. It is, by default of space availability, the only venue capable of accommodating mainstream brands as well as side shows valuable to retailer education.… Read More

A margarita can be very inspiring, two of them can really get the lime juices flowing. I was at my local “Cheers” for only the second time in 13 months, Santa Fe. Not the city but the Mexican bar and restaurant on 71rst street and Columbus Avenue in NYC. It was the most glorious evening and I had not quite dealt with the fact that I had no subject for my next blog, when Laura Bird one of the managers, came over to our outdoor table to chat for the first time in a long time… we started to talk about life and business, as they are two very different things.… Read More
