She’s my little treasure shop. I watch her undress and redress through the open doors in her apartment. I want to talk to her about the fault lines in our bodies but she forces me to forget my words. The sun outside this time of year never sets and she tells me she likes it, tells me there is more to see in the day light, tells me I should look harder. And I do. And I am afraid I will never be the same because of it.
Alexandrea Anissa’s owner and designer Vanessa Villarreal absolutely kills it with a lingerie line that evokes playful and erotic in equal parts. These photographs taken by Danielle Defoe of muse Natalie Krim feel cinematic and voyeuristic. The style of the shoots perfectly enacts what the pieces do. That is to say, while wearing them you feel part performer in your own life, the centerpiece and main attraction. There is something truly empowering and feminine about this line– vintage cuts made modern with perfectly placed straps, wraps, and cutouts. Enamored.
