Here’s a sexy little surprise to start off the day: For her first ever design gig, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld has designed a capsule collection of lingerie for Kiki de Montparnasse. As we reported back in September, Roitfeld mysteriously hinted that she might be working on a lingerie line, but nothing was confirmed until now, which is great because you’ll only have to wait about a week to get your hands on the lacy creations. According to Elle, the collection hits stores next Wednesday.
Julia told Elle of the design process:
I had quite a strong idea of what I wanted to achieve but had absolutely no knowledge of lingerie design. Lingerie design is very specific—it’s not just about looking good, it’s really about the fit and every detail counts. I had many meetings with the team at Kiki, submitted my sketches, and then it was about seeing what was doable, the fabrics we could play with, etc. I knew what I wanted, but I couldn’t have done it so well without their expertise
The model/muse/graphic designer/photographer/mom wouldn’t spill any details about her next project, so how about a sexy, stylish maternity line?
In addition to designing the collection, Roitfeld starred in the hazy, vintage-inspired look book (who better?). As should come as no surprise, Julia (pre-pregnancy we’re guessing) and her designs look gorgeous. Click through to see.
