Gang, I am so thrilled to be announcing a collaboration with Tuxe Bodywear! I’ve been a longtime fan of the brand, so when Tamar (the founder and CEO) reached out about a potential collaboration, I knew exactly what I wanted to work on:
The Coach – a silk button-down bodysuit – has been one of my most-worn pieces for years. Not only did I want Tamar to bring it back, but I wanted to tweak it a little. The collar is (and has been) perfection. (If you ever see me wearing a white collared shirt under anything, it’s this one.) The sleeves stayed nice and long (thank you, Tamar), but a sleek hidden placket was added, and the top button replaced with a pretty pearl one. I also requested that this bodysuit be offered in both full bottoms and thong.
The result? Effortlessly chic, and sneaky-sexy. The kind of top that looks equally amazing with office trousers as it does with distressed denim or a pretty little skirt.
In addition to offering The Coach in cream silk, we wanted to do something a little bit unexpected……
It turns out that blue-and-black stripes give The Coach a rocker-ish vibe (that is nicely offset by the demure pearl button), and the bright blue stands up equally well to my trademark bright lipstick or dark, smokey eyes.
Words cannot express how excited I am about this collaboration. Especially since I’ve had so much hands-on experience with the product itself. This is the one top that has inspired more than a few friends (and readers!!) to reach out, raving about how much they love it. I couldn’t be happier with how the new Coach came together, and learning about the entire process – from conception to production – has been fascinating.
But I want to know what YOU think! Feedback on the pieces? Anything else you’d like to see someday?
