Not to sound selfish, but wouldn’t it be nice to give a Valentine’s Day gift you can enjoy as well? Forget about chocolate and flowers this year because what your lady wants is something you can appreciate just as much as her. When it comes to lingerie, women can’t get enough, especially now that wearing inner-wear as outerwear is seen as chic and modern. These six lingerie brands are designing some of the sexiest and most beautiful modern intimates collections on the market today. Take a look below and give the gift that continues to give (to both of you) all the year through.
The Lake and Stars
Designers Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman create lingerie that not only revives classic style, but redefines what it means to be seductive. Named after a Victorian euphemism for a woman’s skill in the bedroom, The Lake and Stars’ collections are all about a new vision of feminine flair, balancing humor and provocation, intelligence and sensuality. We love the Royal Camisole, inspired by Uma Thurman’s bad girl character Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction.
Between the Sheets
“My goal is to make loungewear and sleepwear that reflects a comfortable, fresh and effortless sensual beauty, like you just rolled out of bed looking ready to play.” And that’s what we see when looking through designer Layla L’obatti’s American-made intimates line Between the Sheets. Using high-quality fabrics and feminine design details, BTS is literally the ultimate combination of seductiveness and comfort. The delicate mesh Airplay collection makes for the ideal romance.
Envisioning a lingerie line that was seductive, luxurious and versatile, designer Kristian Giambi created BRULEE in 2009. Handcrafted in NYC’s Garment District, her indulgent lingerie features hand-cast gold and Swarovski crystal hardware. With the mentality that every woman deserves to indulge, BRULEE is both alluring and comfortable. The line’s silk charmeuse Vamp Robe is a piece every woman needs in her intimates wardrobe.
We can’t think of a more seductive lingerie line than Agent Provocateur, boasting the perfect mix of classic and modern glamour. Backed with nearly 20 years of design, you can trust AP for the finest French laces and silk satins with collections that inspire women to feel their most sensual anytime, anywhere. We’re obsessed the Lavelle line from the Spring/Summer ’13 collection, featuring alluring cutouts and feminine silk bows.
When we think of Donna Karan, the chic, urban woman comes to mind. Not only does she need to look perpetually on point, she has to do it effortlessly. And what a woman wears underneath her clothing is just as important as the outfit itself, bringing Donna Karan’s intimates line to the forefront of our minds. The Etheral Lace Balconette Bodysuit is beautiful enough to flaunt as outerwear, the perfect feminine piece that doesn’t look overly frilly.
When Jenna Leigh launched her namesake line in 2008, she filled a void in the intimates market for high-fashion lingerie at a moderate price point. Perfectly balancing vintage style, timeless elegance and casual sophistication, each collection fuses stunning technical details with the need for modern comfort and practicality. The incredibly sexy Biscayne Demi Bra is the ultimate in everyday luxury.
