With over 150 years of expertise in making the best in men’s underwear here at Sunspel, we thought it was high time we used all that knowledge to create a full collection of women’s underwear with our usual superior quality and understated style.
Creative Director, Pascale Pinxt, wanted to create a collection that revolved around comfort while appealing to a broad range of women.
“It’s about being a really comfortable layer against your skin that you don’t need to think about. It’s about effortless dressing too, the underwear should feel as comfortable as pulling on a T-Shirt – it’s your go-to basic that you knows fits and looks great.” Pascale Pinxt, Creative Director
Fuss free and truly luxurious, the designs are supportive without being restrictive, precise in fit and impeccably finished. Pascale explained the importance of simplicity in the range, “Traditionally women’s underwear is linked to embellishment, lots of lace, creating a silhouette. Our underwear is not at all about that – it’s just beautiful lines, simple shapes and comfort, and I think there’s a real beauty in that simplicity.”
This simplicity is at the core of Sunspel’s values, as is fabric innovation. We have so many wonderful existing fabrics, developed and refined over generations in our men’s underwear, which perform just as perfectly for women. Each piece in the collection is crafted from one of Sunspel’s signature fabrics, all of which are supremely soft, beautifully light, and incredibly comfortable cotton.
Firstly our Superfine Cotton, a 100% natural long-staple cotton jersey, was worked into the classic styles like simple briefs and ultra-soft camis that are perfect for everyday wear, or as pretty sleepwear sets too.
Next our Stretch Cotton, which is given a performance quality by its elastane content, was turned into a more sporty feeling set, including athletic-inspired crop tops, high waisted gym pants and sleek hipster pants.
And finally the collection takes a turn for the feminine, using our gauzy Cellular Cotton in place of lace for delicate briefs, French knickers and pretty triangle bralettes too.
Available in a simple but flattering palette of black, white and grey, this collection provides the essential foundation for the modern woman’s wardrobe.
