We all know that fashion is revivalist. As a result, designers are always looking for some inspirations from the past. This is what the Canadian indie label Fortnight Lingerie did. Only it delved into the recent past of its own.
For this fall and winter Fortnight Lingerie presents a wide range of underwear ensembles, rompers, slips and bodysuits that re–introduce the most popular styles of the brand. Such an unusual approach does not mean a four years old Fortnight Lingerie ran out of ideas. This is just a way to affirm its signature look and to prepare for the future growth.
Fortnight Lingerie FW14 collection gave a new life to its most popular vintage looks: Luna, Mira, Vega and etc. Of course, new colors and new fabrics were used in order to improve these past styles.
And for those, who prefer nowadays trends, the brand offers a black leatherette set. It will give you an ultra–modern look in the bedroom or… at the club. Just imagine, how great you would look wearing a leather–detailed longline bra in a combination with an old school high-waisted jeans. As a tendency to wear intimate pieces as an outerwear is growing and growing, a lot of other Fortnight Lingerie items could be also worn this way. Especially, its stylish longline bras.
Fortnight Lingerie used to introduce one collection per year. From now on the brand is going to renew its assortment twice a year by presenting a spring/summer and a fall/winter collections. Still, despite the fact that the latest Fortnight Lingerie line is dedicated to the cold and dark seasons, it does not seem that way. The line offers light and transparent materials, bright and soft colors that associate with the easy and breezy atmosphere of summer. Christina Remenyi, the founder and designer of the Fortnight Lingerie, says that the winter was very long, so she was really inspired by the summer while creating this collection. She also wanted to maintain the classic and sophisticated angle of the brand. Well, the Fortnight Lingerie FW14 collection looks more luxurious and feminine than ever with its delicate lace, soft and tight forms.
Fortnight Lingerie was established in 2010 by the already mentioned designer Christina Remenyi. Although this is a Canadian brand, it is well sold across both sides of the border – meaning Canada and USA. The secret of the Fortnight Lingerie success lies in its unique mesh of classic and vintage styles. By the way, the brand uses very old Singer Zig Zag sewing machines, so the items not only look vintage but also have a vintage spirit. The fact that its founder Cristina Remenyi is a professional and a skilled seamstress helps as well. Ms. Remenyi not only knows how to create designs, but also how to make them fit perfectly and fell comfortably. Customers value this.
