Molto Bene! Cosabella Makes Green Line of Lingerie


I’ve had a love affair with Cosabella ever since my Swiss friend Susanne declared there is no better thong on the market. That’s why I’m so happy the star of the Italian company’s Fall 2008 line is the Eden Collection, woven of a silky blend of bamboo and micro-modal fabrics. Even Eve would be tempted by the comfort and durability of this new eco line.

The biodegradable bamboo used is an ideal choice for fine-quality underwear, because it is antibacterial, free of pesticides and herbicides, and four-times more absorbent than cotton. All of these combine to make the collection breathable and odor free. Modal is also a 100% natural fabric made from the pulp of beech trees and is extremely agile, which means the garments will endure lots of wash and wear. Say goodbye to itchy nylon panties with snags!

The collection of under garments and loungewear comes in organic garden shades of carrot, sage, corn, radish, earth and onion, and will be available in stores that sell the brand, including Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman and many more small boutiques nationwide. Purchase online at Chic Mystique. ($29-117.80.)
