A friendship that feeds the soul.
The story of Imogen
We are beyond excited to introduce our new friend Imogen, a food designer based in London. Imogen uses culinary practice as a means of communication. We had a chat with Imogen about food, Lingerie, and sustainability.
S/R: Tell us about yourself and your work
Imogen: I am a food designer who uses culinary practice as a means of communication— my work encourages comprehension through consumption. This could take form as an interactive dinner, edible installation, or recipe creation such as this project, where I find ways to interpret a brand's concept and aesthetic through ingredients and cooking techniques. I am currently based in London, raised in NYC (where I attended culinary school and worked in restaurants), and born in Sydney.
S/R: How did the Semi/romantic pieces you chose inspire the recipes?
Imogen: I loved the delicate nature of the lace fabric (supplied by Iluna) used in the Bea set. The fluttering, crispy edges of the crepe represents this material and its texture. Roasting grapes with lemon zest is a unique way to treat a common fruit, resulting in exciting bursts of caramelized flavor, in the same way, that Semi/Romantic uses known materials to create unique garments.
A balance of fragrant spices and soothing tea to calm both the body and mind in the morning or before bed. The Esme set, with the front clasp bra and form-fitting design, is sexy and comforting to wear. To represent this feeling are the milk and rose petals that exude femininity and softness, while the various dried spices add depth of flavor and luxury.

FAVORITE SEMI/ROMANTIC ITEM
“I love the delicate nature of the lace fabric used in The Bea Set.”
Lingerie is an intimate thing. That's why we love knowing about the women who wear SEMI/ROMANTIC, and we want you to know us just as well.
We are so happy to introduce our new friend Alex. Alex's work to make social media more real, allowing people to share their vulnerability and be open is so inspiring. Together with their partner, they create images that so beautifully encompass the values they live by.
We can't think of a better way to end this year and start the new one than to introduce you to our new friend — Sella Molenaar. We fell in love with Sella's beautiful art and when we met her we immediately knew we would be friends! We sat down for a chat with Sella to talk about art, femininity, and of course, beautiful lingerie.
