VPL Trunk Show presented by Lille Boutique and Frances May
On Thursday, May 12, 2011 from 12pm to 8pm, Lille Boutique and Frances May will be hosting a Trunk Show for New York City designer, Victoria Bartlett, and her label VPL (Visible Panty Line.) VPL began with a simple concept of drawing the innerwear out to become a visible, stylish part of our everyday uniform. VPL launched its first line of undergarment-inspired styles in the Fall of 2003, when well-known stylist Victoria Bartlett had a vision to design a capsule collection to fill the niche between lingerie and sportswear. As a stylist, Victoria acknowledged the growing demand for utilitarian yet stylish undergarments that can be mixed, matched, and layered, hence, the building block factor she encourages in her designs. Furthermore, Victoria began to question the assumption of sexiness in undergarments. With the bold assertion that “I don’t do T and A,” she challenged the fashion world with an innovative conception of sexy.
The event will be comprised of a Fall 2011 trunk show and Spring 2011 immediates sale from 12-6pm, followed by a cocktail hour and a meet-and-greet session with the designer from 6-8pm, where she will be offering up styling tips and suggestions on how to wear her designs. It will be held at The Cleaners at the Ace Hotel, located at 403 SW 10th Avenue at Stark Street.
Lille Boutique carries high-end lingerie and swimwear, with an emphasis on vintage-inspired, independent design and natural fibers. Frances May is a carefully curated men’s and women’s clothing boutique blending modern silhouettes with nostalgic charm. Both shops carry a wide selection of the VPL collection. This free event will be open to the general public, and complimentary refreshments will be served. For more information, email with “VPL” in the subject line.
