When I was a very little girl, some of my first sets of underwear were the days-of-the-week style. I distinctly remember being excited to pick out the correct day every morning, and I think they are part of what started my love of fun underpinnings! I’m sure many of you had the same experience – and if you want to relive your childhood delight, or if you simply love being organized, I’ve found the knickers for you! Stella McCartney released a “Knickers of the Week” set in the Autumn/Winter 2008 collection that revive our girlhood memories, complete with dainty ruffles and sweet embroidered flowers. The silk-blend knickers come in a complete seven-day pack, or an abbreviated weekend set. They would be an adorable gift in the dressing-drawer style packaging! Find your own at Net-A-Porter, Boudiche, or Journelle.
Stella McCartney to release first lingerie collection in February 2008
Stella McCartney will debut her first lingerie collection next month! The popular British designer is pairing with Bendon, the New Zealand-based company that handles Elle Macpherson Intimates, will launch her Spring/Summer ’08 line at Neiman Marcus in mid-February.McCartney talks about her inspiration, which started at an early age:
“I was obsessed with French slips, lace inlays and handwork. When I think about lingerie, I tend to think of really handmade precious pieces. … The intimacy that a woman has with her lingerie is quite inspiring.”
The collection will include feminine bras, briefs, bodysuits, and chemises with prices ranging from $45 to $325. All of the pieces have sweet and girly names, like Daisy Dreaming, Eve Giggling, Mia Winking and Coco Blushing. Apparently McCartney is following the same aesthetic as her outerwear – frilly, coquettish, and super sweet!
Stella McCartney Lingerie to come!
British superstar designer Stella McCartney (she’s more famous as a designer than as daughter of, which means something when daddy is Paul) will soon be launching a lingerie collection in cooperation with the New Zealand-based Bendon brand (the home of Bendon Lingerie, Bendon Sport, Elle Macpherson Intimates, Fayreform and Hey Sister).
The pieces will not be on the affordable end of the spectrum with +/-$90 for knickers to $580 for chemises. That’s about the only information there is right now (thanks to Stuff NZ!), but we’re expecting more info on this very soon!
