Ari Dein - Petit Mort High-Waisted Brief...a Faire Frou Frou favorite!
images via Ari Dein
These days it seems like we have been buried under the emails in our inbox, but luckily for us, last week one of those emails stood out because of its lovely content. That message was from Arielle ("Ari") Shapiro of the newly launched luxury lingerie line Ari Dein. This glamorous brand is handmade in Manhattan, and quite the class-act! We have to admit, it's rare to find a U.S. designer that specializes in luxury intimates, so discovering Ari was a pleasant surprise.
The general theme of Ari's work is an elevated style that borrows motifs from
"old New York and Hollywood Glamour, antiquated furniture, boutique hotels, art nouveau architecture, surrealist artwork and foreign cityscapes". No wonder it caught our eye!
Fine materials, beautiful details applied by hand, and nostalgic themes all contribute to creating a unique brand that is certain to make its mark in the lingerie world.
The images in this post are from the Fall/Winter 2010 collection, which means you will have to wait until at least August/September to own one of these pieces. There are also more pieces to the collection we haven't posted...but hopefully these will whet your appetite. Everyone in the lingerie industry is buzzing about this brand, so it's time you start buzzing about it too!
Expect to see Ari Dein at Faire Frou Frou this Fall!
