Ohh la la! The 127-year-old European lingerie brand Triumph has finally launched an e-commerce site in the states, making it that much easier to stock up on the brand’s collection of fabulous underpinnings. And the brand’s famous face, model Helena Christensen, has designed a new collection in celebration of the expansion. “This collection has been a real passion project for me and I’m very excited that it’s going to be available in the U.S.,” Christensen said of the line, which was created exclusively for online purchase here in the states. “I set out to create pieces from ideas inspired by my love for color, vintage lace, nature and most of all the various female body shapes.” After all, what is lingerie without a little lace? “You can’t have a lingerie collection without having lace in it!,” she told InStyle.com of her ballet-inspired collection. “I’m a huge collector of vintage lace. I remember when I was a teenager, I would find vintage lace at antique markets and be so fascinated by the work and the intricate details and knowing that these were created by hand in low candlelight, and how beautiful they are, every piece being an artwork in itself. Looking through lace sample books is so much fun and then trying to make something different with the fabric every time is amazing to me.” She may hit the red carpet in a glam gown, but when does this photographer, model and designer really feel the sexiest? “Crawling into bed wearing a silk neglige, having just taken a shower,” she says.
