When panties are a dime-a-dozen, who can really say that their lingerie is really made with love? Luxury lingerie hasn’t always been in my budget, but as I’ve gotten older my style has evolved and so have my panties. I’ve just come to realize that quality is better than quantity, and I’m proud to say that I am no longer a panty hoarder. I’ve completely purged my old collection and have brought in a new range of dainty bralets and drawers into my life.
With Love Lingerie is the newest label I’ve introduced to my wardrobe. The line is soft and feminine, yet hard and sexy – the perfect pairings for any lingerie lover. With Love Lingerie is made and designed by Carrie Russell in Toronto. Russell began with love in 2010, but prior to launching her independent lingerie line she designed for a number of other private labels.“The work was really exciting and demanding, [but] I decided that if I was going to be pouring blood, sweat and tears into a collection it should be truly my own,” Russell explains.
Since launching, With Love Lingerie has made its way into 18 boutiques across Canada (many right here in Toronto) and was even named one of the top 25 up-and-coming designers to watch by Flare Magazine. It’s no surprise that the line has sparked the interest of so many, because the line is truly a lingerie enthusiasts dream. Even if we don’t admit to it, every woman wants to look sexy and feel empowered – With Love Lingerie does just that. Each collection has it’s own uniqueness. Courage, a collection that features black satin, lace, and mesh with reinvented garter belts and gold detailing, is for the woman who wants to play the bold seductress, while Willow is soft and fresh. “I like the idea of embodying and feeling like a whole different person based on your lingerie, but still being true to your personal style.”
Now that we’ve given you the 411 on one of our favourite Toronto made and designed lingerie line, it’s time for you to get to know them a little bit better.
