I’m excited to have spoken with a connoisseur of all things intimate, Guido Campello, Co-CEO of Journelle. In this must-watch “Intimate Talks” interview, Guido shares the history of his family’s lingerie business, as well as speaks on the subjects of creative entrepreneurship, education, inclusivity, and innovation.
Guido Campello was born and raised in Miami in a family of immigrants who embodied the best traditions of the Italian lingerie craft. Now iconic, the lingerie brand Cosabella, was an American dream that the Campello’s have brought to life for over 30 years.… Read More
There’s a reason that Italian lingerie is regarded as some of the most luxurious, if understated, in the world, and it’s because of brands such as Flora Lastraioli who are still out there crafting things the ‘old way’.
Founded in Florence, Italy in 1932, this brand has been passed down from generation to generation, along with its traditional construction technique know-how. Today, Flora Lastraioli is owned by Matteo Pecchiolo, great grandson of Ms. Flora and a skilled designer, tailor and patternmaker in his own right.… Read More
Visiting the Hanky Panky® showroom has always been a panacea for me. This is mainly because the minute I enter, I find myself embraced in a spectrum of color and light most appreciated when forging through the concrete caverns of the NYC market. To quote myself some years ago.
Visiting their showroom is a sojourn in a garden of intimate delights. Born and bred in the intensity of the New York apparel industry, they are an ever-blooming light in a sea of sameness.
“Wear lingerie you want, not the one you must,” is a motto of an extraordinary high-end lingerie company, based in Poland. Movelle lingerie has been created to free feminine confidence and build self-esteem, allowing each woman to conquer the world on her terms.

I am certainly not the first person to use the term “wearable art”. However, season after season, when I see the Christine collection, this is the only phrase that comes to mind. I am sure it’s because Christine, artist that she is, designs the prints herself. Applying them to a canvas of luscious silk from which she creates her signature loungewear shapes, she has, through the years, curated a legacy of lingerie masterpieces worthy of investment. Crafted with the technical expertise of a highly skilled tailor, and rich in color, these pieces are generously sized OS, P-XL.… Read More
I don’t even know where to start when describing the Shell Belle Couture bridal brand. It’s an exquisite, showpiece of excellence, a cornucopia of lingerie detail expertly sewn, and a true paradigm of intimate design. In today’s world held hostage by on-line media the Shell Belle Couture campaign imagery sells its story effortlessly. I can vouch that this is all true because I just saw the new Illusions of Grandeur collection and believe me, it did not disappoint. This is beauty beyond belief, each piece a singular superstar.… Read More
I do. Til death do us part. I pronounce you. I take you. I promise. Happily ever after. Tie the knot. Bliss.
Love and marriage. Spouses, couples, and the ups and downs of matrimony are making the headlines and some big waves. Do you stand by a spouse that encourages and helps orchestrate a government takeover? Do you recuse yourself or better yet resign from the highest court or do you pretend you knew nothing? Maybe you throw her under the bus and try single life for awhile ?… Read More
