Minimalist Lingerie by Portland's REIF
Comfort, functionality and a subtle, sexy twist establish the AW '14 basics collection
Amongst a sea of over-embellished, neon-colored intimates that clog retail spaces everywhere, Portland-based REIF's new minimalist lingerie is a big gulp of fresh air. The latest AW '14 "basiks" collection introduces contemporary pieces that are seductive without being flashy and, most importantly, are meant to be utilitarian and comfortable in movement—as the lookbook demonstrates. Designed by self-taught Lindsay Reif (who first become known in local circles for her versatile turbans and headbands) continues this functional yet edgy aesthetic through the rest of the collection, from two-toned lounge pants that fit looser in the hip to an oversized tee with geometric cut-outs. While the entire REIFbasik collection is worth a look, the lingerie bodysuit, bralette and briefs are unquestionably highlights.
All pieces are made in limited quantities and are produced in the USA. REIF's Apex briefs retails for $75, while the bralette is $81 and bodysuit is $141. Each is available from the REIF online shop.
