5 Silk Loungewear Essentials

Our Designer In Chief Can’t Go Without

 

The Christine behind Christine Lingerie has been designing silk loungewear, lingerie and beautiful bridal pieces for over 40 years. More over, she lives and breathes her brand, incorporating her silk and velvet designs into her daily wardrobe. As both intimates and outerwear, here are her five favorite silk loungewear pieces that she wears to feel beautiful, comfortable and chic.

  1. A Long Velvet Robe: “I love waking up in the morning and putting on my long velvet robe.” Christine says. She prefers them oversized so that she can cuddle up in them to feel cozy on cold mornings. Christine likes that you can also wear them in the evenings and still feel elegant while sitting around and watching TV. Velvet is something we like to incorporate into our collection every season. This season we chose a beautiful black cherry color for our Faberge Long Velvet Robe, making it a timeless and most glamorous way to feel cozy in the mornings and at night.

  2. A Silk Kimono: Every season, we design a new, exclusive print for our Japanese-inspired collection. Christine loves an open silk kimono so much that she chose to wear it to BOTH of her daughter’s weddings paired with a coordinating silk cami and lounge pant from our collection. When talking about her love for the bi-annual Japanese-inspired kimono Christine says, “When you wear one of our silk kimonos you are wearing a work of art. I wear them to many events, fashion shows and parties and people always compliment on how beautiful they are. Each season, we work very hard on our print to develop a new unique look. With our Japanese-inspired prints, it has always been an incredibly creative design process to put the collection together.” For Spring/Summer 2019, we premiered the Solitude Collection, which includes a beautiful new silk kimono depicting a graceful crane and floral motif. This work of art is perfect if you are looking for a refreshing, cooler hue. If you would prefer darker earth tones, we suggest the kimono from our Phoenix Collection, which is among our most striking kimonos to date. The blue phoenix on this piece is unforgettably magnificent.

  3. Silk Tops & Tunics: “These are everyday pieces that I feel comfortable to wear to work or out for dinner.” The best part of our silk tunics and tops is their amazing versatility. They are designed to go beautifully with jeans or silk pants. You can dress them up, wear them in a corporate environment or dress them down and casual. Lastly Christine adds, “I love taking the tunics to Mexico and wearing them as a coverup over my swimsuit.” So it’s safe to say that these pieces are an extraordinary value in addition to being a wearable work of art!

  4. A Classic Cami and Lounge Pant: From the designer herself, “These are so easy to slip in to. Again, you can dress them up or down and they are flattering for all body types.” Christine loves wearing a silk cami and lounge pant set to present her new collection at our booth at the CurvExpo in New York City each season. As she mentioned earlier, they pair so elegantly with the open kimonos. Christine additionally enjoys pairing the silk cami with jeans or pants. “I keep them in my wardrobe in every color.” she says.

  5. Silk Pajamas: These are a timeless classic and a staple to Christine Lingerie. In the evenings, Christine loves to wear silk pjs to watch her favorite shows with her husband, David. She even likes to style the button down top as a shirt to wear for a casual date night with her love, too.

The Christine Lingerie team would like to take this opportunity to reflect on 2018 with gratitude and look forward to a bright new year ahead. This year was monumental for Christine Lingerie. We celebrated our 45th Anniversary, gave our showroom a beautiful makeover and continued to expand our lingerie and loungewear design-horizons, reaching new women everywhere. As a result, we are feeling filled with the spirit of Christmas. Therefore, we would like to take the opportunity to acknowledge the little gems within this yearly milestone and thank all of the people who make Christine Lingerie the brand we are today.

Christine’s mission has always been to make women feel beautiful, inside and out. Her designs are derived from a sense of whimsy and romance, celebrating femininity and timeless beauty. It is no coincidence that her career began in bridal, because love itself has always been what Christine’s creations revolve around.

We would secondly like to acknowledge our incredible team, some of whom have been with us since 1983! Christine Lingerie put the spotlight on our talented seamstress, Alina Chang, as 2018 marks her 35th year working with us. Click here to read more about the special story behind Alina and Christine meeting and her journey with the brand. From design, to production, to sales, what our team has in common is a love for the brand, which is what truly separates us from other silk designers and makes our collections shine.

Our showroom makeover: Christine Lingerie is very proud of our Canadian roots so we were delighted to renovate and reinvent our flagship store in Vancouver, which is also our headquarters where all of the magic happens! We redesigned the interior, making the space more modern, chic and luxurious. If you are local, we invite you to come explore our silks first hand in the newly imagined space, where you will also have the opportunity to meet our team of incredible individuals who look forward to sharing the collection with you.

Gratitude for forty five years of support: As we mentioned, Christine Lingerie celebrated its 45th anniversary in November. You can read more about the history of our brand by clicking here, but we would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge all of the incredible women who wear Christine’s silks, chiffons, velvets and more, season after season. It has been the greatest gift to see our pieces reach new women every year. We are always delighted to receive feedback, or see women posting photographs in Christine Lingerie on social media. So thank you, to everyone involved with our brand for your support, kindness and love over the past forty five years. Although the holidays are often filled with bustle, we are reminded that the heart of this season is really meant to give us pause. As we sit in our silk gowns, pajamas, and robes during the final days of this year, we look forward to a quiet moment to reflect and count our blessings. Wishing everyone a warm and beautiful holiday season and a most happy and bright new year. Thank you for being a part of our mission of beauty, femininity, romance and light.
