It has been nearly three years since I first featured Ukrainian brand Apilat here in the Gallery, and quite frankly, after you see what they’ve been up to, you will agree that was far too long to wait.
You likely know by now that I am easily swayed by ostrich feathers and shimmering fabrics, and the way Apilat utilizes these materials with such sophistication and elegance is simply breath-taking.
Primarily founded as a wedding dress label in 2012, you can identify a heavy bridal influence in all of their lingerie and loungewear designs. … ...Read more

They may not be the typical boudoir gloves I might normally feature in a Lingerie blog, but when it comes to pro-active thinking in the time of Coronavirus, the story behind the hand protectors just launched from Ghluv.com is at the top of my list. A few weeks ago, in conversation with lingerie colleague Tina Wilson, who, among a few other lingerie industry responsibilities, is the Creative Director for Hue brands, I learned of an innovative initiative birthed in early March at a company brainstorming meeting.… ...Read more

We’re all adjusting to this strange new world we live in for the foreseeable future. Life has blended into one long blur of working from home, wearing stretchy pants and worrying about whether we can find the groceries we need at the store.

For the past 4 weeks, my only escape from confinement has been a long walk through my neighborhood watching the slow blooming of spring flowers.

The seasonal evolution doesn’t stop and nature is a mitigating vision during this difficult time. Everyday, I walk past this magnolia tree whose emerging pink buds stand in vivid contrast to the stucco home they frame.… ...Read more
By ELLEN LEWISI was a comfort junkie long before the Coronavirus changed our wardrobe requirements.
While working at home on my computer, I realized that, perhaps, I should share the fact that I’ve been literary living in my Urban MuuMuu loungers. I own two: one long and one short. I must admit that they are several years old. But they are just as colorful, soft, and nurturing as the day I first wore them.

Given that “Tiger King” is the show entertaining the nation right now, it’s perfect (prrrfect) timing that we feature the brand Kilo Brava, whose headquarters is a handful of miles far from the infamous Carole Baskin’s Big Cat Rescue center AND their current loungewear collection features an original tiger print! Clearly someone was channeling what was going to be big in 2020 (and really, who could have guessed).
Kilo Brava is a lingerie and loungewear brand based in Tampa, Florida created by Kristin Bear, the former head of design at Cosabella.… ...Read more
