Los Angeles designer Maria Paz Navales launched Undrest in 2007 as a cotton lingerie collection, but soon expanded her line to include cashmere and silk intimates as well as women’s contemporary clothing and swimwear. Inspired by her world travels and fashion from the 1920s and 1930s, Navales personally sources all of her fabrics locally. She also employs a staff of skilled artisans who create each ruffled bikini, crocheted swimsuit and other Undrest garment using eco-friendly practices. Undrest’s black and white Water leggings, Rio caged back bandeau bikini and other best-selling designs have appeared in <I>Cosmopolitan</i> and on style blogs worldwide.
When our buyers brought in this gorgeous bounty of undergarments and loungewear from Undrest, Cosabella, and others, more than a few of us immediately put in requests for sick days (in our minds, at least). Who could blame us? From beautifully-sewn ballerina briefs and sexy sheer mesh robes to flirty babydoll nightgowns and borrowed-from-the-boys pajama pants, the selection here is perfect for relaxing on the couch (or in the bedroom) for hours on end.
