One of the most lusted over brands at last month’s Lingerie Fashion Week was LAYNEAU COLLECTION.
The brand’s debut collection, “Princesses and Queens”, was on display on live models during Lingerie Fashion Week’s last day showcasing a collection of boudoir-wear inspired by great vintage originals, updated for today’s generation.
Photographer Nomi Ellenson captured some of the intricate details crafted by the brand’s designer, Kaaren Bedi, that we wanted to share with our readers.
“Luxury Boudoir-Wear For the Modern Madame ‘X’”
“Princesses and Queens” is a six-silhouette collection featuring sweeping floor length dressing gowns, dramatic velvet bed jackets, silk slips, chemises, robes, and oversized night shirts.
Deep burgundy, seafoam green, faint blush and wispy grey mark the color palette, presenting the whimsy of fairy tale illustrations while calling upon their (less-remembered) dark undertones. Constructed to last generations, meticulous seams and attention to fit are evidence of Bedi’s extensive design experience, pooled together from years as a costume designer and wedding gown couturier.
LAYNEAU’s bespoke pieces are crafted by hand in the label’s Portland atelier, taking great care to both cover, and reveal, strategically. We’ll be working on a full story on Kaaren’s collection later next month.
