For our readers who want to learn more about the brands at the “Ones to Watch” Special Exhibition, we’ve put together this handy Designer Guide:
Arsenic and Vielles Dentelles
Arsenic & Vieilles Dentelles is a Lingerie label which likes to imagine that the Lingerie is more than a clothing, it’s a second skin, it’s a real fashion accessory which acts as a beauty product with which women can compose, can have fun, express their personality and being able to reveal their own sensuality. A&VD are the label of the women who want to wear beautiful underwear every day.
Founded in 2012 by Marin Camille and Julia Zolinsky, Blackbird Underpinnings is a different kind of intimate apparel company — one that celebrates the unique beauty of every woman by promoting self-expression and authenticity.
Inspired by the daring flappers of the roaring twenties and the fierce, able ladies of the tumultuous thirties, Blackbird Underpinnings brings you locally crafted intimates with a touch of the renegade feminine. We hope that these sumptuous garments will inspire fervent expressions of confidence and poise—a reminder that the simple act of dressing oneself is at once creative and revolutionary.
Since 2012, Iris has been lovingly creating lingerie from an east London studio, Hackney Downs.
Epitomising modern elegance and structural wearability, Iris stays true to the empowering qualities of lingerie whilst redefining the concept of luxury underwear. Meticulous in all areas of design, sourcing and manufacture, we are a British underwear brand that combines classic craftsmanship with contemporary styles, resulting in feminine, high-fashion intimates to be worn and treasured forever.
Everything is designed in house by founder Ellie Simpson-Gray, who takes inspiration from old hollywood cinema, 70s documentary photography, and sartorial subcultures of London. Developing classic shapes that naturally flatter the female form, Iris garments use modern colour palettes and luxurious fabric combinations, all sourced from within in the UK. Each piece of lingerie is individually hand sewn, ensuring the highest quality fit and construction. Iris is Luxury London Lingerie.
Designer Laura Mehlinger has been studying, designing and making clothing since the time she could hold a needle. Before launching Lola Haze™, she held design positions at Gap, Inc. Laura received her BA from Harvard in English. She was called “Harvard’s Ace Student of Fashion” by the Boston Globe for creating and showing her own line of women’s wear in the only one-person fashion show there in memory. She named her line after the title character in the novel Lolita, which she wrote her thesis about and which continues to intrigue and inspire her.
On a year-long solo trip around the world she collected exotic objects, fabrics, and stories. She finds difference and quirkiness-visual and otherwise-inspiring and is driven in her designing by the idea of surprise.
Decadence is key. Nevaeh Intimates, created in New York City, exudes femininity and empowers the modern day sophisticated women with a new luxurious lingerie collection.
Negative is a new way to under wear. Uncomplicated. Considered. Minimal. We believe that less is more – that what’s not there is just as important as what is – so we focus on the essentials and ditch the rest.
For girls by girls. Challenging the status quo. Obsessively crafted. Accessibly priced. Better underwear for every day.
