Yasmine Eslami Spring 16 Collection
Posted on May 02 2016
We're so pleased to be one of the very few worldwide boutiques that carry Yasmine Eslami's gorgeous French lingerie. The new Spring '16 collection is her best yet, full of classics like the Tara that flatter smaller busts, as well as new bras like the Serena for fuller figured ladies. I'll never forget the first time I met her over five years ago--in Paris on a buying trip that was about to wrap up. I was eager to hit the road with my husband and head to the French and Italian Riviera for the vacation portion of my international adventure, but I just knew I had to meet her. Yasmine was debuting her new line, so she did not have a booth at the big convention center show, but we agreed to meet at a café across the street, since I was so excited to see her collection. We hit it off immediately--she's so warm and friendly that it's hard to imagine anyone NOT hitting it off with her--and she busted out her samples on the dainty marble café tables, much to the chagrin of some Japanese businessmen sitting a few tables down from us. Gasp! Panties! We giggled like old friends and bonded over our appreciation for the magical details on her debut collection like tiny embroidered flowers and secret love messages hidden under bra cups. I was delighted to learn that she was the talented stylist responsible for some of my favorite photo shoots, (Stella McCartney's very first lingerie campaign, for example) and not surprised to hear that she'd honed her teeth at Vivienne Westwood for ten years, given the fantastic quality of her construction. I knew she was a force to be reckoned with in the lingerie world, and I'm so happy to see how much her line has taken off! Stop by soon to check our her new arrivals, which are selling out fast, and be sure to get on the notify list for her Fall collection, which will arrive in Late Summer.
