"Like many women, I wear my day clothes like a suit of armor, a uniform. They help us create who we need to be for the public roles we play on any given day. They are a means of expressing who we are to the world, or want to be, and where we fit in. But in my private life, I want to express nothing more than my playful, relaxed, cute, sexy, smart, and sophisticated inner self. Truly being who I am and not who someone else wants me to be. This collection is about effortlessly expressing our inner beauty..."
GemPicket is the brainchild of veteran interiors and fashion executive, Germaine Picket. After leaving the fabled Store Development department at Ralph Lauren, where she created global retail interiors for the iconic brand throughout the better part of a decade, Germaine decided to give life to a lingerie concept she had conceived of several years prior. Quietly luxurious, beautiful, comfortable, sexy creations of the finest natural fiber fabrics in a neutral palette; something she had struggled to find in the marketplace.
In 2013, Germaine turned to a couture lingerie modiste in Paris to help make her designs a reality. Launching for Autumn/Winter 2015, the namesake line GemPicket introduces sophisticated and feminine silhouettes in cotton/silk batiste and fine cotton knit fabrications sourced from Japan and Italy. Ranging from soft bras and expertly cut knickers to open-back tanks and flirty shorts, lounge pants to leggings, bodysuits to rompers, it is up to the individual whether to wear them together or separately, inside of the bedroom or out.
Germaine Picket currently resides in Manhattan and enjoys traveling the world for inspiration.
