The Lake and Stars F/W 2010

I recently interviewed New York-based lingerie designers Nikki Dekker and Mayaan Zilberman of The Lake and Stars for The Block Magazine. For those of you not familiar with the label, hurry up and get yourself familiarized at once! No, seriously: lingerie rarely makes it on my must-have list. Last week, The Lake and Stars launched their Shop-in-Room at the Waldorf hotel in Vancouver with an elaborate peep show event titled “Five Secret Worlds.” Definitely not your average peep show.

I also picked up a little something. I love the construction of these garments: they fit like a glove. The velvety pebble texture is soft to the touch and together with the mesh fabric makes for a magical combination. I’ll be back once the spring stock is in. I’ve got my eye on these nighties.
