Who started it? LJT Lingerie is the new sister brand of Les Jupons de Tess, the brainchild of French designer Caroline Tannous. The granddaughter of Lebanese painter Georges Guv, Tannous started Les Jupons de Tess four years ago and, in that short time, the fledgling brand has scooped the coveted jury prize at the Salon International de la Lingerie trade show in Paris, France. Tannous' inspirations are quintessentially French, with her decadent designs harking back to 18th- and 19th-century boudoirs yet remaining thoroughly modern in their use of fabrics and construction.
Why we love it: LJT Lingerie has been created to make luxury lingerie more affordable and has given Tannous an outlet to be more daring with colour. We love the fact that despite the more accessible price points there has been no compromise on the design or fabrics used, which are of the highest quality.
What we'd pick: the aqua cami (HK$849) and shorts (both below; HK$489) from the Effrontee range epitomises LJT's use of bold colours while the white nightie (bottom; HK$869) from the Galante range is sensual and delicate.
