By ELLEN LEWISChristine Lingerie Dark Romance silk print on Lingerie Briefs

I know I am a bit late to the party, but recently, I have been binge watching Game of Thrones, having missed the craze when it was peeking. My husband thought it wouldn’t appeal to me as I have a deep distaste for gratuitous violence and sex in films. But I am fine with it when it weaves the very fabric of the tale setting the course for the dark romance between good and evil. In fact, it is the potent forces of male hubris and female intuition that turns this story from a brutal exposition to a sensual lyric.… Read More

Detail of Chihuly glass ceiling installation on Lingerie Briefs

I remember earlier in my retail career, whenever I felt too bogged down in paperwork, I would abandon my desk and re-merchandise the selling floor. It was like mental yoga, balancing color and form without compromising focus on key items. The challenge refreshed me. Today, a little under the weather and on a publishing deadline, I decided that the best salve for my current physical and mental challenges would be to soak in a little lingerie art and find a visual parallel that clarified my story with a charismatic presentation.… Read More

Christine Lingerie on Lingerie Briefs

There has been some commentary on social media recently questioning the use of the Japanese Geisha as a reference for design. It has been called out as what some see as the glorification of women serving men. I find this perspective incredulous. It is clear that this statement precludes knowledge of the Geisha culture. These women hold a powerful place in Japanese society. The word actually translates to artisan. In his book, Geisha, A Life, Iwasaki Mineko states: “Geishas are not submissive and subservient, but in fact they are some of the most financially and emotionally successful and strongest women in Japan, and traditionally have been so.”… Read More

When I lived in New York’s Hudson Valley, surrounded by endless winter woods, it was the tremendous Magnolia tree in our back yard that announced the shift in seasons. Over the years, its branches grew to form a canopy so large that sitting beneath its branches was to find myself enveloped in luxurious solitude. It was the explosion of silky blossoms that briefly embraced this space in April that formed a sight line to spring. In Cabo, where flowers bloom year round, the continuity is appreciated, but it cannot match the visceral beauty of watching the magnolia petals emerge to maturity against the still bare landscape.… Read More

It’s wedding season and as you can imagine, there is quite a buffet of ivory and white dominating the lingerie landscape at the moment. But  here in the Baha Sur where color is augmented by the intense light and flowers tend to be deep penetrating hues, I have been thinking about the kind of wedding one might plan  in Cabo: bold and seductive, rich and luxurious. It reminds me of Christine Lingerie’s Muse collection of exquisitely designed silk sleepwear. Nothing absorbs dyes quite as beautifully as 19 mm silk.… Read More

Yesterday I got caught in a flash flood here in Connecticut. I was taking a riding lesson when a wicked downpour exploded over the ring. Thunder and lightning forced an immediate dismount.  By the time we got the horses back to the barn, there was water everywhere and rising fast.  We took refuge in the hayloft to wait it out.  That storm defies the fact that summer is over even if this weekend is the unofficial turn of the seasons.  Christine silk gowns and robes for spring 2014 on lingerie briefsI was thinking about this while waiting patiently for nature to take its course; about how for the world at  large, fall 2013 is moments from our doorstep.… Read More

Christine Silk Loungewear Seascape as featured on Lingerie BriefsSeascape

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
