You may be hesitant to drop major dough on unmentionables that don’t usually see the light of day, but the items at Fifi Chachnil are not your basic underpinnings. The delectable French lingerie line has popped up inside Noho’s Bond 07, with a selection of brassieres, briefs and onesies displayed against a backdrop of silk curtains, roses and cotton-candy-like bows. The craftsmanship on the pinup-inspired Parisian lingerie makes it special-occasion-worthy; look for sheer, polka-dot rompers fit for Bettie Page ($240) and deceptively innocent playsuits with floral trim ($305). Less-expensive items come in the form of sassy see-through bow-adorned bras ($150) and matching lace-trimmed bottoms ($80), or silver-dotted bras ($155) and matching briefs ($100), which leave clichéd French maid costumes in the dust.
