I see plenty of Wendy Glez creations throughout various online lingerie sites and I love the way she crafts delicate laces, sumptuous ribbons, and satin bands into magnificent undergarments. Each piece of lingerie is rich in design and colour indicative of the luxurious, comfortable and stylish nature of Wendy Glez intimate apparel and loungewear. Interestingly, although she is a popular label with many retailers carrying her line, I have not seen one online shop with any items from her two newest collections so I wanted to preview her fabulous holiday collections that have just been added to the Wendy Glez site.
Black Label Fall/Holiday 2008 is a gorgeous group including bras, panties, camisoles and chemises or babydolls. Each set is a different design and colour ranging from decadent Chocolate Pink to intense Navy Grey, Old Rose Blush and Black. Every bit as beautiful as the rest of her collections, the luxury influence from the use of the finest European fabrics and laces is evident in this lavish group.
Fall/Holiday 2008 is more casual than the Black label collection but is very elegant and undoubtedly focused on comfort. Most of the pieces appear to be loungewear type styling including a short, sleeveless body suit in Gunmetal, a pretty mini dress with open back in Mocha Eggplant, glamourous camisole with lace bodice and long pants finished with deep lace hem both in this year’s shade of purple Eggplant, intricately-detailed lacework bra and briefs in Ecru Chocolate Mint, and other lounge pieces such as capris, printed chemises, soft, plush robes with or without hoods, paisley night dress, and various bras, camisoles and panties.
Having been exposed to garment making from the early age of seven, Wendy spent countless days in her father’s garment factory studying and learning to create her own designs. Based in Los Angeles, California, her collection is not only known for its “superior quality, fit and functionality but for the effortless ability to blur the line between innerwear and outerwear”.
