Holiday Lingerie Gift Guide Inspired by Psyche

When it comes to channeling the Psyche myth via your lingerie collection, as far as I’m concerned, it’s all about that lace. Not only is it a delicate and romantic textile, but it also has both bridal and funereal connotations that feel appropriate for her story. I especially like sets that feature hints of shimmer or metallics, calling to mind the flickering candlelight by which she first sets eyes on Eros’ face. I also chose pieces that feature a mix of transparency and opacity, as well as soft, veil-like garments that bring to mind the hush of midnight and gathering shadows.
