A Brief Encounter 

I see London, I see France…

It was an embarrassing taunt in the schoolyard. But you’d be just as ashamed if anyone saw the boring beige undies you’re sporting these days.

Unless you’re wearing lingerie from local girl Lornnie Louie’s collection. A Kaiser grad who’s designed for Calvin Klein in New York, Louie’s collection of silky, feminine intimates has only been available in New York and LA – until now.

Tonight, she’ll unveil her lingerie collection at a fashion show at Next Door. Afterward, everything will be on sale for wholesale prices. Designed and manufactured completely in the USA, her no-wire bras, bloomers, bikinis and camisoles are all made of specially treated silk that is extra drapey and satiny. And with ultra-girly details like bows and lace, these undies beg to be shown off.

This time around, they're more likely to get you chased around the bedroom than the playground.

Which means you'll be the one doing the teasing now.

Lornnie Louie lingerie fashion show, tonight at Next Door, 43 N. Hotel Street, Chinatown. Doors open at 7 p.m., the show begins at 8. Admission is $10. Call 808.548.6398 for more info. To check out Louie’s collection, visit
