Yet another celebrity lingerie line is set to hit US stores this November. Janet Jackson, singer of the 1987 hit “Pleasure Principle” is about to release an intimates line by the same name with Syndey-based designer Bruno Schiavi. Schiavi is experienced in creating lingerie with celebrities; he also has worked with Australian singer Delta Goodrem and actress Priscilla Presley. He said of his newest project:
“Janet and I wanted to create a collection that empowers women and that makes women feel sexy, flirtatious and provocative.”
42-year-old Jackson was excited about her new endeavor in a press conference announcing the brand:
“People have come to me with other ideas, but lingerie is a passion for me, and just like music and acting, I can’t do it unless I put 100% into it…There’s something for every woman, and that’s very important to us. I’ve always hated when lingerie is uncomfortable, so the fit and comfort was key.”
It sounds like the line will be classic and feminine. There will be a lot of satin and lace, as well as rich colors like burgundy, beige, silver, peach, black, and white. The first collection will debut in U.S. department stores this November with prices under $40. The collection will include 14 different bra styles, and will fit most women – the sizes range from 32A to 44G! The line will be launched in Australia, Japan, and Europe at a later date.
