Haha, hi friends, wow, I dropped off the face of the earth again, huh? It’s almost like stuff out in the world still Isn’t Great, which means that for some super-odd-and-totally-inexplicable reason, I still don’t have an attention span! Wild. What IS great is that I moved to a new apartment this Spring, so after a year of truly horrendous loneliness plus some awful, mildly traumatizing stuff with a neighbor, I am finally in a living situation that is the opposite of that! I hope this means that my attention span will return and I can start writing and thinking creatively again.
I have some blog posts and reviews tentatively planned, and I may start mapping out a possible editorial or two, but today I want to share some incredible pieces of lingerie art by some of my favorite artists. The small lingerie art collection I’ve been building up over the last few years brings me so much joy, and I’m so happy to see all my pieces displayed in my new bedroom. If you’ve found yourself with more time at home over the last year, and want to bring some glamour and grandeur to your boudoir, I hope these selections give you some ideas to get started!
Y’all know I love mythology and magic mixed in with my lingerie, so Logan Spector’s art, which contains breathtakingly detailed, soaringly imaginative references to myths and legends, thrills me every time I see it. Some of her pieces directly reference lingerie from some of my favorite independent brands like Karolina Laskowska and Harlow & Fox, you’ll find creations inspired by monsters and vampires, and not only can you purchase prints for your wall, but her art is also wearable, in the form of sumptuous, gorgeously printed silk scarves. My current favorites are the Hecate scarf, serving supremely witchy vibes with glamorous black lace lingerie, and, of course, the jaw-dropping Fairy Queen scarf and matching eye mask, a collaboration with The Lingerie Addict, which sees Cora depicted as Titania, the Queen of the Fae, surrounded by her court. My dream is one day to commission an original piece from Logan, but until then I’m dreaming of wrapping myself in her gorgeous silk designs.
I have two of Quinne’s paintings, Libra from her Lingerie Zodiac series as well as a bespoke commission, and I love them both so, so much. Her art conjures a confection of a world where soft, dreamy pastels perfectly pair with mischievous sensuality. Her latest series is called The Kitsch Hotel, each piece featuring a carefully decorated bedroom, with each room’s inhabitant wearing perfectly coordinated lingerie (truly, the dream). I covet the full set, but I think my favorites are Pink Glamour Suite and Under the Sea. I’m also in love with the standalone painting, in my boudoir, because I’m a sucker for a rococo cat.
Oh, can I somehow make this even more about me? I sure can! Tessa and I met when we acted together, and I’m still dazzled by the full scope of her talents. We collaborated in 2020 on a Valentine’s Day editorial, which turned out to be my last studio shoot before the pandemic. In addition to being a talented photographer and performer, Tessa also makes linocuts, and she created one based on one of the photographs from our shoot! ‘Sweet Saint Valentine’ features the ‘Rebelle’ velvet and lace collection by Evgenia Lingerie, and it’s an extremely limited edition, with very few prints left. I have one on my lingerie wall in my room, and I sent one to my mom, highly recommend.
Hope you all are doing well, and thanks for coming along while I get back into the swing of writing about lingerie again!
