Following in a long line of supermodels-turned-lingerie designers, Carolyn Murphy has designed a collection of delicate lace and printed underwear in collaboration with British brand Cheekfrills that will be available globally on Net-a-Porter this month. Friends and family—including Annabelle Neilson, Emilia Wickstead, Charlotte Tilbury and Debbie Von Bismarck— gathered at London’s Spring restaurant on Wednesday night to fête the transatlantic launch. At the dinner, Murphy explained why Cheekfrills, which favors organic, toxin-free fabrics, made an ideal partner. “I have a daughter and I want her to be aware of what she wears and the implications it has on our bodies and the environment,” Murphy explained. “Underwear is the closest thing we wear on our bodies and nothing with chemicals is ever any good.”
Wearing the right lingerie is also, according to Murphy, the key to sleeping well. “For the best night’s sleep, wear an eye mask, take your make-up off, turn off all phones and electronic devices, and, of course, wear a Cheekfrills chemise,” she said. When her stylish guests got home, however, instead of heading to bed many took the opportunity to document the personalized pink panties in their goodie bags with a few bathroom snaps.
