All too often, the most gorgeous items in our wardrobes are hidden from view. Tucked away into drawers, stashed into protective silk satchels, layered beneath tees and shirts and jackets. I’m talking, of course, of our intimates. Lacy, delicate, and composed of the softest shades, these pieces are made to be shown off, but why wait around for the right moment to do so?
Hung from a window, displayed on a bed frame, or arranged neatly atop a dresser, your most cherished pieces take on a whole new life – functional form transforms into sculptural beauty.
Draped on vintage wooden hangers, ethereal white slips allow the sun to filter through, coloring the room in whatever hue they happen to be.

Lace and pattern is too lovely to hide away. Try displaying a trio of bras on top of your dresser with flowers to match.
Dress forms are wonderful for outfit planning, or just showing off a favorite robe and necklace. Display it until you’re ready to drape it around your own shoulders.
In place of a painting, display a flowing slip or nightie on the wall. Hung on an antique hanger with a few necklaces, the view will inspire you to add beauty into your everyday outfits.
