It was several years ago that I was first introduced to the Louisa Bracq brand at Curve New York. In a small booth they were assessing the North American market opportunity for their eponymous lingerie brand that launched in Europe in 2007. This family owned embroidery workshop, based in France, had been supplying exquisite embroideries to some of the best-known luxury lingerie brands since 1938. Recognized for their unique creative skills, the Bracq family legacy is couched in a dynamic and technically innovative approach to embroidery design.… ...Read more

I’ve been snooping around the Men’s Lingerie market for several seasons now, but have resisted covering it with the exception of some cool underwear because, well, frankly married to a flannel shirt kind of man, it’s never been on my personal radar.

This year has been one of significant change for everyone. Both individuals, brands, and lingerie stores have been adjusting to the new normal as things rapidly go virtual.

Frederika (Freddy) Zappe’s fit clinic is always a popular attraction at Curve, so this alternative version offers the same thing in a bite sized package.
I volunteered to be the guinea pig for the experience out of more than a desire for research.… ...Read more

My first real encounter with the term ”transition” in fashion was being summoned from my perch just outside of Calvin’s office and into his. His private office was somewhere between a large studio apartment and an upstairs art gallery dotted with white minimal furniture. My time there at 205 West 39thstreet was the era of his “Obsession” perfume and the height of Calvin Klein jeans. It was the debut of his underwear and hence the reason for my being there, that was my job.… ...Read more
