GemPicket is the brainchild of veteran interiors and fashion executive, Germaine Picket. Having spent the early part of her career studying at Parson’s School of Design and honing her skills at Donna Karan, Germaine later accepted a position with Ralph Lauren. After leaving the fabled Store Development department where she created global retail interiors for the iconic brand throughout the better part of a decade, Germaine decided to give life to a lingerie concept she had conceived of several years prior. Beautiful, comfortable, sexy creations of luxurious natural fiber fabrics (particularly cotton) in a neutral palette, something she had struggled to find in the marketplace.
In 2013, Germaine turned to a couture lingerie modiste in Paris to help make her designs a reality. Launching for Spring/Summer 2015, the namesake line GemPicket introduces sophisticated and feminine silhouettes in cotton/silk batiste and fine cotton knit fabrications sourced from Japan and Italy. Ranging from soft bras and expertly cut knickers to open-back tanks and flirty shorts, lounge pants to leggings, bodysuits to rompers, it is up to the wearer whether to wear them together or separately, inside of the bedroom or out. Germaine currently resides in Manhattan where the collection is designed and produced.
