Ladies unmentionables. We’re not supposed to mention it, but the truth is we all enjoy them, whether behind closed doors or away from prying eyes. But not today.
We had the absolute pleasure of meeting Brooke Majdick of Naked Intersection, a timeless invention with no real location, simply just vintage-styled underwear that’s both effortlessly sexy and modernly sustainable (which is even sexier). This Los Angeles handmade tale is like most: It started out as one thing and quickly evolved into something special. And yet, it’s nothing like the rest.
While Majdick muses radiantly on occasion as both model and photographer to her own masterpieces, her balance between stylish and seductive strikes as consistently as her creation’s confidence and comfort, beautifully complementing the female form instead of obstructing it. Anyone wearing them feels immediately self-assured in their own skin, compelled to endlessly lounge in them from sun up to down, even men. You heard me.
Have a peek under the sheets with the creator of Naked Intersection while you get a long, hard look at Majdick’s marvel: fleur undies that will make you feel like you’re dancing naked across a lily pond. That much is worth mentioning.
What made you decide to go with this style of underwear?
I wanted to create an underwear line that feels like your second skin. I’ve never been into the fancy frills of typical lingerie. I wanted to design something that was both minimal and sensual.
Our silhouettes accentuate the curves of a woman’s body while being cozy enough to wear underneath clothes or just to lounge in.
What is it about this style that you think is attractive to women?
I think women just want undies they feel good in. Something that highlights all of the body’s beautiful curves while being comfortable enough to run around the house and wake up in.
Would you say granny panties get a bad rap?
Hey, if my grandma wants to throw on something see through that shows off her lovely shape, I’m all for it.
What is your least favorite style of underwear & why?
I’m a bit turned off to a lot of the overtly “sexy” lingerie on the market. Too many straps. Too much lace. Too much going on in general.
I’m more into comfort and sensuality. We are talking about delicates here. They should feel that way.
How did this all come to be, were there stages or did you land on it almost immediately?
Naked Intersection actually began years ago as a vintage clothing shop. I teamed up with close friends who made their own jewelry and pottery and we would sell our stuff at local popups and flea markets.
It wasn’t until I graduated college, took some courses in herbal studies, and worked at a women’s gathering space that I decided I wanted to create a sustainable underwear line. The idea was to create something that empowered women while being mindful of the environment.
What about these is environmentally conscious?
All of our fabrics are locally sourced and are either reclaimed or made from natural fibers. We make everything out of a small factory in East Los Angeles and only produce small runs so as to minimize our environmental impact.
What do you say to people who think it’s creepy to buy panties for their partner?
If my partner gifted me a pair of cute, cozy panties, I’d know they were a keeper!
What’s the funniest thing you’ve experienced in trying to create your own underwear line?
While I haven’t had any particularly funny experiences, I love that a big part of my customer base is men.
I get emailed somewhat often about modifying our ruched style to accommodate a little extra...you know where.
