Intimissimi Spring Collection takes us from Paris to British Secret Gardens to LA Sunsets
An intimate round-the-world trip for the SS 2021 Intimissimi collection, following a clearly planned and diverse route and stopping off in three locations, each with a completely different atmosphere, to shine the spotlight on a lingerie line that is special and unique down to the smallest detail.
First stop: la Ville Lumière. From Paris with love, wandering around the many bistrots dotting the historic Le Marais district and strolling down the Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, soaking in the hustle and bustle of this vibrant, lively place and immersing ourselves in the romantic atmosphere of the city of love par excellence. The result is a seductive and intriguing part of the collection, designed to make you feel good and look good, where self-confidence is the buzzword. Sexy and sleek crossed elastic details create sensual interplays of light on the skin. A multitude of tiny, exquisitely French ribbons and appealing ramages climb up tulle bralettes and culotte briefs, skillfully enhancing the curves in delicate interplays of sheer see-through effects. The collection is all about black – the quintessential color of mystery – paired with white, for a mischievous contrast of nuances and textures.
The trip goes on, heading North, across the English Channel and towards the UK. Here, it turns into a comprehensive tour of the British countryside, exploring the beauty of the British Secret Garden, the traditional English garden. This part of the collection thus naturally veers toward floral prints and classic spring themes. Flowers become the undisputed stars of the collection, featured on subtly sensual triangle bras and panties: small, delicate buds enliven romantic super-soft cotton sets; printed or skillfully embroidered, they embellish, with their fine combinations of textures and surfaces, clean-cut bras and briefs made from a variety of fabrics, such as tulle, for a delicate sheer look that is never excessive. The ever-present Sangallo lace makes a huge comeback, adorning white cotton with its ethereal openwork detailing.
Leaving Europe behind, we now head towards the Pacific coast and land in the legendary City of Angels. Los Angeles – a melting pot of boho influences, cosmopolitan accents and a healthy lifestyle – suggests an easy-to-wear style with just the right amount of effortlessness. So, super-comfy cotton sports bras and culotte briefs get the green light, along with versatile yet chic and feminine sets brightened up by lively hues recalling California’s iconic L.A. Sunsets.
