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.
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday. The Adidas Originals NMD Hu, which Williams designed in collaboration with Chanel and @adidasoriginals, has a waiting list of over 120K people who pre-registered online at chanelatcolette.fr –– and only 500 pairs are on sale. The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion
@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother.

“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
