We're excited to announce our new partnership with one of our favorite sites, Fashionista. We'll be bringing you some of their best fashion finds, shopping stories, and style news. Today, they're giving us a peek at Julia Restoin-Roitfeld's new lingerie:
Here’s a sexy little surprise to start off the day: For her first-ever design gig, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld has designed a capsule collection of lingerie for Kiki de Montparnasse. As we reported back in September, Roitfeld mysteriously hinted that she might be working on a lingerie line, but nothing was confirmed until now, which is great because you’ll only have to wait about a week to get your hands on the lacy creations. According to Elle, the collection hits stores next Wednesday.
Julia told Elle of the design process:
"I had quite a strong idea of what I wanted to achieve but had absolutely no knowledge of lingerie design. Lingerie design is very specific: it’s not just about looking good — it’s really about the fit and every detail counts. I had many meetings with the team at Kiki, submitted my sketches, and then it was about seeing what was doable, the fabrics we could play with, etc. I knew what I wanted, but I couldn’t have done it so well without their expertise."
The model/muse/graphic designer/photographer/mom wouldn’t spill any details about her next project, so how about a sexy, stylish maternity line?
