The Soul of Lingerie

“Brevity is the soul of lingerie.” So says American wit Dorothy Parker. Do we agree? Perhaps the soul of lingerie is something more subtle. Jane’s Vanity explores the quotable world of love and lingerie.

When asked what makes a woman sexy, Catherine Deneuve replied, “La Virilité.

We get it. Virility needn’t be masculine. Define it as an embrace of life. Show it off in lingerie that brings you joy. Every day. Today it’s Coco de Mer’s Lovers Palm Lingerie Set in teal silk and champagne mesh embroidered with glimmering teal and silver palm trees, peacocks, and lovebirds. 

“Real elegance is everywhere--especially in the things that don’t show.” Christian Dior 

Well, maybe they could show a little. Cadolle’s Coeur Bodysuit will be your constant companion as fall approaches. Its sheer long-sleeved black body is mesh and lace from bust up with microfiber at bottom. Lace detailing features hearts at front and sleeves with keyhole detail at front neckline.  

“Il faut du temps pour la corsetterie.” Peter Mayle (in Encore Provence: New Adventures in the South of France)

Although it may be true that corsetterie takes time, Cadolle’s little black silk Finon Corset Garterbelt won’t take much. It has a zipper! Just add perfect stockings from Falke or Gerbe. Worth a few uplifting moments.

Jane’s Vanity wishes you happy lingerie thoughts.
