LOS ANGELES — Jeannie Lee, designer and owner of Satine Boutique here, has created her first collection of intimates for Anthropologie, called Bacini.
The collection and brand name are coowned by Lee and Virginia Pereira. Lee designed the understated collection of bras, panties and chemises.
The designers said they took inspiration from “everything Italian,” as well as men’s wear details such as buttons and keyholes with strong vintage references. Sizes will be XS, S, M, L and XL. Suggested retail will be $18 to $88.
“Anthropologie asked us to do something with a separate identity from the other lines they carry,” said Lee, who spends time in the flea markets of Paris finding peasant tops and lace pieces for inspiration.
“We didn’t want to create something overtly sexy, but it had to be sexy because the girl or woman wearing the pieces is sexy herself,” Pereira said.
That would explain the subtle and flattering cuts in everything from silk to jersey and pointelle cottons, finished with rustic lace trim and embroidered details. Fabrics include striped silk and floral prints in a muted palette of taupe, blush and ivory.
Lee, who spent several years living in Italy before opening her five-year-old West Hollywood boutique, also designs an in-house line of dresses, pants, sweaters and outerwear. The boutique has a celebrity clientele, including January Jones, Lucy Liu, Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie and Christina Aguilera. Stylists such as Rachel Zoe are also fans of the high-end retail space, where lines such as 3.1 Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang are sold.
The Bocini intimates line is set to launch next month in a majority of Anthropologie’s 120 freestanding stores and the anthropologie.com
Addressing Anthropologie’s first collaboration with a specialty boutique, Wendy Wurtzberger, chief merchandising officer, said, “Jeannie has a different perspective but one that is very complimentary to Anthropologie.”
The line will also be carried in the Satine boutique on Third Street in Los Angeles. The store is set to relocate across the street from its original location in February 2009.
“What he has done at Vuitton is really exceptional,” said @gameofthrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie on @mrkimjones’ final show for @louisvuitton. “He has rebooted luxury in terms of making it commercial, viable and contemporary. And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

“And so spending so much time with a character who thinks like that, inevitability you try and analyze yourself and go back and think about your own demons and dark chapters that you had in your life,” says @thedanielbruhl of his role in TNT’s “The Alienist.” The show, set in the Gilded Age of New York, also stars Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans.

“My personal philosophy to beauty is paying attention to oneself. I love to be outdoors, lots of fresh air, trying to take care of yourself as best you can.

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
