Powerful Lingerie for Strong Women

Aria + Leya is more than a place to buy designer lingerie and swimwear online in India, we’re a community. A community of strong, independent women who believe that their choices in lingerie and fashion are completely their own. How you represent yourself through your designer lingerie is your choice and all we want to do is support you! By creating a sisterhood, we have been able to spread our message of high-quality, feminist lingerie to women who understand that what you wear under your clothes matters just as much as the clothes you don on top! To celebrate this, we’ve chosen four of our favourite pieces and connected them to a woman in the public eye that we admire.

Vintage Valentine + Angeline Jolie

We all grew up watching Angelina Jolie topple the patriarchy and go against the grain with both her choice in movies and lifestyle. She was known as a bit of a bad girl (as this bra and panty might lean toward) however, she has really evolved and become one of the world’s strongest ambassadors for women’s rights. In a speech she gave at the 2015 African Union Summit, she said, “There is no greater pillar of stability than a strong, free and educated woman. And there is no more inspiring role model than a man who respects and cherishes women and champions their leadership.” Reminding us that it’s not just women who need to be feminists, but men as well!

 

New York Snow + Kangana Ranaut

Considered a black sheep in Bollywood, Kangana has never had any trouble saying exactly what was on her mind. Her infamous Koffee with Karan episode made waves when she called Karan Johar out on supporting nepotism in the industry. He retaliated, very inelegantly at an award show where he badmouthed her in front of millions of people, where she was absent of course. She’s always been one with #NoFilter and has mentioned on multiple occasions how she feels about the nepotistic power structures in Bollywood that is supported by the patriarchy that rules the space.

Ode To Polka Dots + Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham has always been a little left of centre, the creator of the hit series Girls has been very vocal about her feminist ideals. She has been very aware of the sexism that pervades Hollywood but has managed to carve her own niche where she is respected as a writer, creator and cultural commentator. She told a magazine, “I grew up with a mother who had come of age in the ’70s and feminism was a huge part of her formative identity, and so for as long as I can remember words holding power in our household, that was one of the most powerful ones,” which is how see has chosen to use her platform and position.

Sun Kissed Skin + Beyonce

Is there anything the Queen Bey can do wrong? It seems unlikely. Not only one of the most successful pop stars in the world, Beyonce has far outshone her equally talented husband Jay-Z to become a woman that almost everyone looks up to. Her song Flawless was the first time she opened up about feminism while her last album, Lemonade has incredible connections to the Black History Movement and women’s rights and she even performed in a lit up sign of the word ‘Feminist’ at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. Though she chooses to steer clear of being a champion or advocate for women’s rights, we believe that her message of empowerment and strength can inspire anyone whether you’re a man or woman.
