The high-end lingerie line Lake & Stars caters to sophisticated ladies who prefer darker hues and refined elegance to pastels and rosette overkill. Designed by Nikki Dekker and Maayan Zilberman, the Lake & Stars’ bras, panties, garters, jersey knit rompers, and slips feature unexpected details like luxe hardware and subtle keyhole cutouts. Color combos are strictly for grown-ups (sorbets and black, brights with nudes), and the cheeky design sensibility (the name comes from a Victorian euphemism for a woman’s skills in the bedroom) is the perfect antidote for thong-flashing overload. Warning: lounging in these haute wisps may make you loathe to get dressed.
