Evgenia is fine lingerie for the modern heartbreaker. It is versatile and beautiful, the ideal marriage of strength and delicacy. A fresh take on an old story, Evgenia lingerie is meant to be worn out and about, and not strictly relegated to the boudoir. Thoughtfully simple construction pairs with feminine silhouettes and French lace details. The intimate styling of bygone eras melds with modern cuts, culminating in a revolution of inner-outerwear.
Born in 2011 as Honey Cooler Handmade, Evgenia began as a line of one-of-a-kind lingerie, with each piece utilizing the largely forgotten embellishment method of insertion lace applique. Recognized throughout the world as an unique and creative take on easy, wearable silhouettes, Honey Cooler Handmade has now bloomed into Evgenia lingerie, a luxury intimates line crafted from silk and exquisite French laces.
Designer Stephanie Bodnar graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2004 with a BA in Creative Writing and a freshly-stoked interest in fashion. After moving to California, she worked in a lace shop and a lingerie boutique while studying Fashion Design at FIDM. She was a designer in residence at San Francisco's prestigious Fashion Incubator program at Macy's Union Square for 2014 and 2015 and now operates her studio in the wilds of West Marin.
Evgenia lingerie can be found in California's finest lingerie boutiques and is in the hands of lingerie connoisseurs the world over.
