Jennifer Lopez wife of Ben Affleck shares details of designing her Intimissimi Collection titled “This is Me… Now” collection which is out today. The pieces, from showstopper rhinestone bras to sultry lace bodysuits, are inspired by her upcoming album of the same name.
In her latest interview with ELLE.com via email, she shares details about how her adventures in love and self-discovery inspired the pieces she made. “The This is Me…Now experience is about a journey to figuring yourself out, and I tried to reflect that in the design of the collection,” she said.
Special touches, such as pieces in her lucky green colour (the colour of her second engagement ring from now-husband Ben Affleck) and hummingbird charms, were chosen with intention. Lopez explained the symbolism of the hummingbird charms in particular, calling it a “favourite detail” of hers.
“The hummingbird symbolizes love, energy, and resilience but whenever I see one, I always feel like it’s a sign from God that everything’s gonna be OK,” she said. “I thought about putting that onto some of the items and wearing that underneath my clothes every day would be a reminder to always know that everything’s going to turn out great.”
Jennifer Lopez speaks below about designing the Intimissimi collection, her tips for wearing lingerie with confidence, and how she approaches picking lingerie for date nights with Ben Affleck. “He loves me for who I am, and so the more authentic I can be to myself I’ve noticed the more I feel his love,” she said.
The Intimissimi collection is classic in style but includes a lot of romantic and personal designs. This album is my most personal to date and maybe my most romantic. The This is Me…Now experience is about a journey to figuring yourself out, and I tried to reflect that in the design of the collection.”
The colours are rich and the fabrics are extremely elegant and timeless. The collection is meant to inspire self-love and confidence, which is a common theme throughout not just the music but the entire experience that I am sharing with my new music as well, Lopez added.
“Well, my style in general is always evolving, but there are still some commonalities between who I was then and who I am now. I’ve always loved sexy lace and unique details as you’ll see in this collection, but now more than ever I’m really leaning into silks and some of the more lounge-like pieces.”
Lopez continued, “I love silk slip dresses, robes, and PJs that feel glamorous and timeless, but they can still be paired with a bra and lace panties for a sexier youthful feeling. I guess what I really focus on more now also is what I feel good about and what I want to wear.
“I wear these pieces for me to feel good, and I want everybody else to feel good about who they are when they put it on too. To love themselves for exactly who they are because everyone is beautiful when you are confident and embrace who you are.”
