Model, muse, Carine Roitfeld offspring and graphic designer Julia Restoin Roitfeld is either designing a line of lingerie or buying a lot of it and then talking to reporters about how much lingerie she has.
At yesterday’s Burberry show, where she sat front row amongst Gemma Arteron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Sienna Miller and Kanye West, Julia told WWD, “I’m mostly excited about the lingerie collection I’m working on. I have a really great lingerie collection, but it’s not for my boyfriend–he doesn’t care–it’s for myself. Next to shoes, it’s my favorite luxury.”
The phrase “working on” would seem to indicate a line is in the works, but maybe, for some lucky people, buying excessive amounts of lingerie is like “work,” though we aren’t sure why she would feel the need to tell a journalist about it. Hmm…
We think it would totally make sense for her to do a lingerie line, given her French-ness, and ultra sexy-yet-chic approach to style. And while she works as a model, graphic designer and photographer, she doesn’t have any other full-time gig that we’re aware of. Plus, she has said she’d like to design clothing one day.
Would you buy Roitfeld-designed lingerie? We would!
