LA-based digital and print editorial magazine Live FAST (Fashion, Art, Sex, and Travel) is already well established for bringing a feminist perspective to shopping for lingerie; once the exclusive domain of eager husbands on Valentine's Day, the magazine's online e-commerce site, the Live FAST Secret Society, has wrested the power away from its patriarchal roots and given the experience of lingerie shopping (and wearing) a sex-positive, female-centric, body-accepting twist.
Shoppers are treated to a new selection every quarter, featuring a tightly curated selection of pieces handpicked by strong, sexual women, resulting in an incredibly diverse edit and highlighting the individuals behind the collections.
Right now, one of the latest and coolest collections comes from Braina Laviena, who began as Kanye's personal assistant and quietly morphed into his biggest muse and highlighted model for Yeezy Season Three and his first Adidas Originals campaign. The Puerto-Rican born Braina is the perfect fit for Kanye's androgynous silhouettes and unisex designs, but her selection of lingerie is definitely all woman (we simply must own these).
Shop Braina's collection online here and read her exclusive Q&A with Live FAST to get some more insight into this avant-garde, risk-taking, totally empowered model's life and philosophy. The collection was shot in vivid colors by Swedish artist Arvida Byström and perfectly tows the line between tomboy and feminine, much like Braina herself.
