Who knew that a brief soundbite could be so confusing — apparently not Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. On Monday, the socialite gave a little tidbit to WWD at the Burberry show in London stating, "I'm mostly excited about the lingerie collection I'm working on." She continued, "I have a really great lingerie collection, but it's not for my boyfriend — he doesn't care— it's for myself. Next to shoes, its my favorite luxury."
So, does Restoin-Roitfeld just love collecting luxe underwear or is she actually designing a collection of high-end lingerie? While many sites interpreted the former, others seemed to be just as bewildered as we were. Either way, we hope it's true. Frankly, we'd buy anything that Carine Roitfeld's daughter made, even if it was a super expensive silk bra.
If Julia does eventually need some advice from a fellow socialite-turned-designer she should definitely hit up Alexa Chung, whose second line for Madewell debuted earlier this morning and ended up crashing the e-commerce site due to an onslaught of orders.
So until we straighten out the truth behind Julia's love of lingerie, and we score some Alexa Chung for Madewell, take a look back at some of our favorite socialites-turned-designers below.
