Gone are those days when a woman was only allowed to wear lingerie inside her boudoir. With the major comeback of the ‘90s layering trend, there’s nothing stopping us from stepping outside of our bedrooms in bralettes, bodysuits, and slip dresses. Capitalizing on this bold and sexy styling is young designer Mix Supetran, a 23-year-old graduate of Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design and Merchandising from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. Her upcoming label, Silhouette by Mix Supetran, will breathe life into your sweetest dreams.
In an interview with Preview, Mix reveals all the exciting details that we can expect from her first collection of designer lingerie and loungewear.
Hi Mix! Please tell us about your upcoming label.
"Aside from [my existing line of] couture and made-to-order gowns, I decided to widen the brand itself. My brand new line, Silhouette by Mix Supetran, is a lingerie and loungewear line, which will present beautiful ready-to-wear pieces that range from bridal lingerie to bodysuits and bralettes to silk cover-ups and slip dresses."

Most designers usually stick to either couture or RTW. What made you want to venture into designer lingerie?
"Lingerie has always been an interest of mine but I never had the chance to explore it until now. I personally find it hard to find a bra that fits me perfectly—even when I do find one, it's too pricey. That's why I decided to try and make a bralette for myself. I posted it online and was surprised that people liked it and inquiries started pouring in. What makes this lingerie brand different from others is that it offers ready-to-order lingerie pieces, and if clients don’t find an available size that fits them perfectly, they can have it custom made with no additional charges."
Sounds interesting! So what can we expect from your first collection?
"Expect sultry, very sexy pieces from this collection. I’ll be releasing see-through mesh and laced bralettes and also sheer bodysuits. Aside from lingerie, there will also be loungewear ranging from silk cover-ups to slip dresses."
So who's your target market? Describe us the girl you're picturing to be wearing your designs.
"Young, sophisticated, and daring women. Those who are willing to take risks when it comes to their style."
Tell us about your favorite piece from this collection.
"My current favorite from the lingerie line are the bodysuits. They're so comfortable and stylish! You can even pair it with pants. My top pick from the loungewear collection is the tie-up polo. I love how I can wear a bralette underneath and give it a sexy but classic look. The loungewear specifically was made to be worn both in the bedroom and out to an event or even to the mall."
What about the price range?
"About 700 to 2000 pesos."
So excited for this! When's the official launch?
"Expect the first collection and the website to be launched this September 11! I’m already excited to share this to everyone."
