MOD by Parfait: Big City Style
T ake a trip to one of the world’s greatest cities every time you open up your underwear drawer. MOD, the trendy little sister line of the lingerie brand Parfait, is geared towards the millennial market with its fashion-forward bras and underwear. The collection retains Parfait’s tradition of offering a full-size range from a 32A to a 44G and bottoms from XS to 4XL. This winter they launched a few collections that embody the essences of major international cities. Read on to explore two of our favorites: New York and London.
The New York set keeps with the big apple theme with colors offered in black, porcelain, and racing red. This attractive bra celebrates your natural shape by not adding to it with padding, a bulky lining, or thick a push-up. Instead, it supports your bust with lace cups and adjustable back straps that are equally pretty as they are functional. The low plunge allows you to wear this bra with virtually anything from loosely slung camisoles, simple v-necks, or a fitted crew neck tee. It will disappear under anything you wear. The low cut gives you control of how much cleavage you want to show off or hide without your bra sticking out. The last details are three little buttons in the middle of the chest that gives a vintage look. It combines the old world and new world, like Grand Central Terminal. This could easily become the most versatile bra you own and take you from everyday to special occasion.
“The New York collection was inspired by the city itself; a place where every kind of personality is accepted, where you are encouraged to be yourself.”
The matching bottoms are just as alluring. The floral embossed lace hipster is not only sexy but will not create any visible panty lines along your bottom. These will be useful under any fitted summer dresses or skirts.
As the brand states, “The New York collection was inspired by the city itself; a place where every kind of personality is accepted, where you are encouraged to be yourself.” They took inspiration from The Empire State lights and the west village trendy streets, and just the empowered confidence of a New York girl. She is a mix of feminine and bold; girly and sexy and does not follow any rules but always stands out amongst a crowd.
An equally striking collection is based on a city across the pond—London. This set is subtly modern and sophisticated. In pretty porcelain and black, the bra and hipster are constructed from soft mesh that is stretchy and comfortable. The fabric is stamped with a small geometric print adding texture and dimension. They also have a string eyelet trim adding a small touch of feminity and refinement.
Focusing on just the bra, the netted fabric along the back combined with an underwire helps to support the breasts. A lightly lined, seamless cup makes sure that what is next to the skin is soft and smooth. What appears to be a stylistic feature, a cut out in the middle section is actually fully functional. The hole offers airflow and breathability especially useful during the summer months.
A similar feature can be found in underwear. The mesh will keep you cool while you are wearing something flowy like a skirt or constricting like jeans. The bottom of the brief is completely sheer giving it a sexy bold look without sacrificing softness and luxury.
These two along with the other cities really exemplify the MOD brand. Their fans are “bold and independent, confident and ambitious. Born with a strong sense of style, she has high expectations for her lingerie and knows what works best for her body.” As much as they want what is new and exciting she wants a value. She is constantly looking for the blending of style and function and this brand always delivers.
