palmers / events.

Last night, I had the pleasure to attend a little get-together at Palmers, an Austrian lingerie / sleep- & loungewear retailer. Along with 9 other bloggers I was  invited to the company’s headquarters, where some of the team took time to show us a little preview of the 2011 collection. One of the things I enjoyed the most was the fact that they actually wanted to hear our (somewhat critical) feedback in order to improve the collection and get a younger perspective on their products. Also, I learned that a regular bra is quite the ordeal, consisting of aproximately 25 – 35 separate pieces… who knew?! Ohhh and I almost forgot to mention the goodie-bag!! I will have a post with that and what I wore tomorrow… be excited, basically every girls dream :)

 how amazing are these vintage ads?? the company is 97 years old!!
 all the pieces that go into making a bra.
 we actually get to pick out a pair of these and have it sent to us, I still haven’t decided because all the stockings are soo nice. I’m thinking 2nd from right… What do you think?

 beautiful Leni with Anna to the left

love the missoni-inspired print on this bathing-suit!!

    Looks like so much fun! The vintage ads are awesome. As far as which tights I'd choose, I think I'd go for the first or second pair from left! So pretty!

    I'm LOVING the nude ballerina looking lights and the double knee-highs at the end. Wow to the bra construction pieces! So intricate!

    Wow…how fun! I can't believe how many pieces actually go into making a bra. That's insane! I would have a hard time deciding which stockings to pick also…they are all so unique and fabulous!

    @anonymous: why do all negative comments always seem to come from people afraid to show their real name? if you have an opinion, stand behind it!!

    also: the 2nd comment was deleted because it was strictly advertisement and I usually charge money to advertise on my blog…
