'By Caprice Lingerie is very personal, it is
fun, flirty, fashionable and practical, [has] great quality and
affordable prices.' More importantly, her collection stands out
because it is subtle, elegant, and comfortable with a little naughty
side. This would account for the fact that she's been voted as one
of the 101 sexiest celebrities. She knows how to maintain the right
combination of naughty and nice.
Speaking of combinations, the collection combines
a delicious soft palette of Spearmints pinks and lilacs. She, with
her design philosophy, recognize the need for soft contours and
great shaping but also keeping it fashionable, making women feel
special. (And ladies, we all know how important it is to feel comfortable
all day longnot just for 15 minutes.) Shaping and material
can really make or break a lingerie line and pretty doesn't always
cut it. The choices that Caprice has made to represent her name
and her brand is well thought out and come through as beautiful,
'My garments are full of feminine detail using
an array of lace, bows and ribbon. By using similar colours throughout,
we provide our customer with the opportunity to mix and match styles
to reflect their own love of lingerie', says Caprice.
As for what's next for her future and the future
of the line, she told us, 'I will be out in South Africa at the
end of January as we are launching By Caprice Lingerie in Edgars,
the largest department store in South Africa. We are also launching
[the line] across Europe, our designs will be available in Germany,
Holland, Switzerland and Austria. I believe I have such affordable
designs that look great on every body shape and I hope to bring
this to as many woman as possible!'
Her collection was initially available in the
USA online at www.figleaves.com,
and at Nordstrom department stores; and the expansion of the By
Caprice Lingerie line continued in February 2006 when other selected
retail doors were added to the stocklist. You can also purchase
pieces by visiting www.bycapricelingerie.com.
