I found Claire Pettiboneâ€™s website a few days ago while randomly searching for lingerie on the internet (as I am wont to do). I had never heard of the label, but I think I may have found my lingerie soul mate! I immediately fell in love with the vintage-inspired slips and lacey details present in so many of the collections. Claire Pettibone delves far into the vintage realm, to the point of offering little bloomer-inspired boyshorts! Introduced in 1994, the line offers camisoles, chemises, gowns, robes, thongs, and boyshorts. My favorite collections are “Felicia” (so pretty) and “Cicily” (so glamorous), although it was hard to choose! I am infinitely enchanted by the description of the line found on the website:
â€œWhen I design a collection, I strive to make a woman feel as special as the delicate creation she is wearing; take her to a enchanted time and place where women are princesses and magnificent goddesses. In todayâ€™s modern world we need to pause and indulge in beauty.â€
I found selections of Claire Pettibone online at Saks and Amazon. There is also a store locator on the website. It looks pricey, with a thong selling for $52 and a gown for $172-$268. They look like a beautiful investment, though! Be sure to check out the website. These modeled pieces don’t do the whole collections justice!
