Strumpet & Pink

Strumpet & Pink
Strumpet & Pink

Founders, Melanie Probert and Lisa Z Morgan

How/Where did it all Begin?

Stumpet & Pink was founded in January 2002 by artists Melanie Probert and Lisa Z Morgan; a capricious idea that began life on the back of a tube ticket.

So gorgeous, they're almost too pretty to wear, the limited edition knickers are hand made from pure silk, satin, chiffon and crepe. Each pair of knickers is individually named with titles like 'Lady Chatterley's Lover', 'Hunting Through the Ruffles' and 'Rosette Cheeks'.

Strumpet & Pink achieve this by embodying the sensibilities of the flower i.e beauty, fragility, sexuality and joy and combining these with the sensuous qualities of pure silk crepe, satin, chiffon and tulle.

The knickers are cut on the bias in such a way as to trace and disclose the contours of the female form. Our knickers brim with contradictions; they are beautiful, humorous and playful; they feel sexy and sensual.

Each pair holds a discovery, either in the form the knickers takes i.e by creating enticing entries which allow for various explorations; doorways and openings may be delicately outlined with seed pearls, some have layers of pure silk ties and ruffles to unlace, some are covered in an abundance of flowers while others, quite simply, become a flower. Or the woman who wears the knickers discovers something within herself simply by wearing them.

"Our knickers do not merely please the eye, they pleasure the senses"

How would you describe your Style?

Strumpet & Pink do not really have a ‘style’ as such but if we had to define one it would be one that demonstrates contradictions. We tend to focus on the embodiment of a feeling, a narrative, and different pieces explore distinct ideas.

What Fabrics do you like to use and why?

We predominantly use pure silk fabrics, on occasion we use cotton, because it is not artificial. It has a natural warmth to it and compliments the body i.e the body can express itself; it can breathe, become warm when cool and cool when warm.

Mel aka STRUMPET

Have you had a chance to Travel?

The places that inspire me the most are the places that unlock a freedom in you.

Where do you draw your Inspiration from?

The playing of senses, the touch of fabric against the skin, places. The glory of loving. Tantalization.

Where is your Home Town and do you still live there?

After South America, Winchester.

What is the best piece of Advice you’ve ever been given?

Parents bought me up to believe I could do anything I set my mind to. Also you can learn from failure.

What is your Quirkiest Habit?

Wearing inappropriate things to inappropriate places.

What is your Happiest Memory?

South America, the playground of my childhood, giving birth, goat herding in mountains and living in a cave with furs and silver goblets, learning to fly. Starting Strumpet and Pink.

Lisa aka PINK

Have you had a chance to Travel?

Japan in the Springtime; to chase and map the cherry blossom.

Where do you draw your Inspiration from?

Life, experience, desire.

Where is your Home Town and do you still live there?

A tiny seaside village in the North West of England called Arnside. A wonderful place to grow up surrounded by the most beautiful scenery.

What is the best piece of Advice you’ve ever been given?

 Came from my Grandmother: actually there are two from her. The first 'it's the things you don't do that you regret and not the things you do', and another wonderful one from her was that 'people can only say no' so it is worth asking anybody anything.

What is your Quirkiest Habit?

I have been wearing the exact same shade of lipstick for 21 years. The ‘quirky’ aspect is that it can only be found in odd oldworld chemists in obscure towns and villages. I have to stock up when I find it.

What is your Happiest Memory?

They always come to light at the most unexpected times in the most unexpected of places.
