Je ne sais quoi
Posted on September 04 2009
It was with a heavy heart that I held off on ordering Eres for the past two seasons. What with the recession and all that economic terror talk, I just had to be pragmatic and stick to the affordable brands that may not have made my heart sing quite like this classic French line. There is just something about the Eres aesthetic that no other lingerie designer can replicate - it's a certain simplicity, coupled with an air of irreverence, all wrapped up in an impeccably constructed package that yields an unmistakable French sensibility, for lack of a better word. Think Jean Seberg or Charlotte Gainsbourg - effortlessly cool and sexy without being overt. Granted, I will be the first to admit that it is indeed pricey, but I can also tell you that among my dozens of bra/undie sets, I count my 5 Eres sets in the top 10 favorites. So when several of my best customers pleaded with me to resume carrying the line, I started to reconsider. Consequently, you will see a streamlined selection of my favorite Eres picks from the Fall collection rolling into Lille in the few weeks. Sizes will be limited, so be sure to check out the website and let me know ASAP if there is anything you're pining for.
