A recent reading of stories and photos of significant timepieces* has us considering landmark bras. Which Jane’s Vanity bra would we wear to be sworn in as President? Or to walk on the moon? Or…?
To sail around the world? Well, duh. It would have to be Freolic’s Fuchsia and Lemon Lingerie Set in ship-shape hot pink silk and yellow guipure lace. Coming into port has never looked sweeter.
To be a dancing film star like Ginger and Fred? Think champagne tulle. Think scallops of black embroidery. Think Vannina Vesperini’s Alhambra Lingerie Set with sultry soft cups and unique racer-back design.
To fly a Sopwith Camel? We like the Pure by Lise Charmel Sexy Baroque Lingerie Set in sheer orange Calais lace detailed with arabesque swirls. The matching hipster panty is stretchy and comfy under jodhpurs.
To drive a race car? We’d want the flash of Studio Pia’s Petra Scarlet Bralette Set. Bold, simple, and made entirely of scarlet peace silk, it is just the thing for accelerating into curves.
To chase spies with James Bond? We travel incognito wearing a trench coat and Taryn Winters’s Delphine Beaded Lingerie Set in black tulle and hand-embellished French scalloped lace.
To display our torsos (and moving arms) on a watch face? Nothing says “quarter to three” like we do in our Cadolle’s Porno Chic Shelf Sets!
And, ok, to be sworn in as President or to walk on the moon? We’re up to the challenge in Karolina Laskowska’s Thalia Corded Monowire Lingerie Set in paisley design corded black lace and minky taupe silk.
Maybe we’ll write a book about it. Happy in our work, we salute you, Jane’s Vanity!
