In honor of Valentine's Day on Saturday, you are about to see the most exquisite and most expensive knickers as the Brits like to say in the world. Strumpet and Pink is a collaboration between two artists Lisa Z. Morgan and Melanie Probert. The lingerie is handmade using the finest silk, satin, chiffon, and crepe. Each is named, with names like Princess and the Pea, Little Bow-Peep, Swan's Tale, Ming's Vase, Black Forest Gateaux, and Where the Sun Does Shine. Each costs from $400 to $1000. Their amazing collection can be seen on their website www.strumpetandpink.com. The artists describe their pieces as "experiential and focus on feeling rather than objectification." To me they are elegant and playful flights of fantasy. May each of you have a dose of that on Valentine's Day.
