Since my original Comexim post, I have been conversing with the brand as well as Anna from Anna Pardal lingerie about our upcoming orders. First, I need to clear up some confusion. The pictures I posted in the previous blog are actually from a collaboration between Anna Pardal and Comexim. Below is an excerpt from the look book I received:
When we started out, we knew that producing high quality lingerie is no simple matter, and that without incredible manufacturing and fabrics, our vision would never become a reality. So, we began a worldwide search for the best partner and collaborator, for a manufacturer and brand who takes pride in every piece produced, who never compromises on quality, and who is always looking to generate brassieres that provide that elusive perfect fit.
Our search took us to the manufacturing hub of Lodz, Poland where we met the creative and engineering geniuses behind Comexim. With an illustrious track record of creating supportive, flattering, and high quality handmade brassieres, Comexim is a cult name in the lingerie circles. Our initial conversations ranged from fit to fabric, and when we broke our first meeting to abscond to the cutting room, we knew we had found our partner. Countless fabric samples, customer interviews, and flight and Skype hours later, our collaboration was born.
Consequently, there are essentially two collections from which our shop can order. The first is the Anna Pardal Exclusive line which uses luxurious Italian and Spanish fabrics and laces to craft elegant, comfortable upscale bras like Milk & Honey, Emmeline, and Miss Pam. The second collection is Comexim’s original Linea Artisana line which can be found on their website and Facebook page. Linea Artisana will be slightly cheaper, but both lines offer a superb commitment to quality and fit. Because there are now two lines from which to order, our customers will be treated to even more styles, colors, and prints. Additionally, I believe our bras will be produced on a per-order basis, meaning you never need to worry about a new fashion style stocking out in your size. This development alone has me beyond excited because I often struggle to snag items from our UK vendors.
Right now, Anna Pardal has a cancelled shipment containing ready-made bras, and to have the line arrive faster, I plan on pulling from the existing pieces. Because the gorgeous Emmeline has the best mix of sizes, our initial order will be for this style. However, if you are interested in another Anna Pardal style, please email me to discuss it. Furthermore, we will also be placing a second order for one of the original Linea Artisana bras. To offer both a light and dark color option in the store, I am leaning toward either the Basic or the Snow. If the line performs well, we will expand to bolder prints and colors. [Read more...]
