LBB Collection - Launching this December
Little Black Bralette
A bralette is a bra without wires or molded cups, think on par to a sports bra, but without the intensity to hold you in. They have thin or lacy straps like a regular bra, and provide a reasonable amount of support for small to average busted women. Yet they are a must have staple piece for the modern woman.
Boehm Intimates LBB collection – Little Black Bralette
Inspired by the LBD (Little Black Dress)
The "little black dress" is considered essential to a complete wardrobe by many women and fashion observers, who believe it a "rule of fashion" that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Boehm Intimates believe the it is essential that the “little black bralette” is the modern day woman “little black dress” - we believe it is the new “rule of fashion” for every women to own an elegant bralette suited to their personality & style.
LBD (Little Black Dress) history –
In 1926 Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel published a picture of a short, simple black dress in American Vogue. It was calf-length, straight and decorated only by a few diagonal lines. Vogue called it "Chanel's Ford". Like the Model T, the little black dress was simple and accessible for women of all social classes. Vogue also said that the LBD would become "a sort of uniform for all women of taste". This, as well as other designs by the house of Chanel helped disassociate black from mourning, and reinvent it as the uniform of the high-class, wealthy, and chic. As Coco herself proclaimed, "I imposed black; it's still going strong today, for black wipes out everything else around.
Ok so what type of black bralette should I buy - you may ask?
Fashion & style shows our individuality it represents our personality. There is no right or wrong when it comes to choosing the right staple bralette for your collection, personality or style.
You choose what makes you feel however it is that you would like to feel. This may be stylish, it may be fashion forward, it may be sexy or maybe a touch of badass is what you would like to feel. Whether you are wearing it to be seen or seen behind the layers for someone special you will have your own personal desire of design.
Boehm Intimates loves to think about different personalities, moods and emotions when designing a collection, in fact the very first collection was inspired by the 5 stages of dating this was sequence:
Innocence – inspired by purity, first love & angelic beauty
Curiosity – inspired by discovery of sex appeal, confidence & empowerment
Gone Bad – inspired by post break up mode..
Wild Tiger - inspired by self love & a promiscuous side
& Love Drunk – inspired by love – one of the most powerful forces in the world
Boehm Intimates has decided to try something different with ther next collection, to dedicate a whole collection to the little black bralette. Keeping it more fashion forward yet still sensual.
Instead of head designer Tessa Boehm imagining the different styles women would wear she has decided to co-design with some of the most gorgeous women from around the globe.
These women who have been chosen to co-design this collection have been asked to co-design a bralette based on what they personally prefer to wear, something that suits their personality, style and something that makes them feel most confident and empowering.
It is all very exciting, we cannot wait to share this collection with you,
