A Look Back at Strumpet & Pink

It is rare that a blogg post resonates as strongly as this one from The Lingerie Addict. Not only was it serendipitously written only a couple of days after the anniversary of Mel a.k.a Strumpet's departure from the physical world but the accolade, or rather the beautiful compliment, that is credited to Strumpet & Pink touches a wistfully tender note.

I do miss Strumpet & Pink’s creativity, sense of playfulness, and willingness to push the boundaries of what intimates could be. The world of luxury lingerie is a little less luminous without their presence, and I imagine we’ll never see another label like them again.

About Me

Lisa Z. Morgan is an artist, designer and writer. The subject and object of desire has been a palpable constant within her artistic expression both as a motivation and in its embodiment or articulation. Through her creativity and research Morgan examines how the value of provenance, of rarity and storytelling, puts into question or provokes our understanding and relationship towards desire and the desire impulse. Her focus has been how we may access, stimulate and touch the internal points of registration or the emotional dynamics of bodily perception. In essence she attempts to define and make manifest the feeling of feeling. Her work inhabits a space where art, semiotics, design and fashion intersect. Morgan is the Co-Founder of STRUMPET & PINK and the Co-Founder of The Lavender Hinge. She is the author and creative editor of Design Behind Desire and also a contributor to SHOWstudio and The Laboratory Arts Collective.
