The Underpinnings Museum: fancy pants

A curated look at the history of our knicker drawers

One of our favourite ways to make recommendations is when an Emerald Street reader brings something to our attention. Lori Smith is one such reader, who got in touch with something to share with her fellow subscribers – and we’re in from the beginning with her new venture, The Underpinnings Museum. Founded by Smith, an academic, with lingerie designer and vintage collector Karolina Laskowska and photographer Tigz Rice, it’s a curated look at the history of our knicker drawers. A Kickstarter campaign launches at the end of the month to get the website off the ground, but for now you can find previews on Instagram and Facebook. It’s beautiful and fascinating.
