I do. Til death do us part. I pronounce you. I take you. I promise. Happily ever after. Tie the knot. Bliss.

Shell Belle Couture

As I was explaining a few days ago, with intimates “it’s all about the details”.  Yes, technical prowess is critical for fit and function, but with Intimate Apparel, it’s the special touches that transform a style into a seductive and elegant art form.  Unlike outerwear, which gets visual support from accessories, shoes, jewelry, even cosmetics, undergarments are constrained by the very fact that they sit so close to the skin and must … Read More
