1. Cinnamon Brown Bra and Panty Set.
One of the collection's goals is to blur the lines between innerwear and clothing, and this bra is a prime example. It taps right into the contemporary infatuation with the bralette and all its counterparts: We can totally imagine wearing this bra under a blazer, teamed with high waisted trousers. The matching hiphugger, too, is a staple piece that you'll want to hoard.
