We’re used to talking with lingerie designers whose work is influenced by movie stars, artists or the famous women who inspire them. But who could have imagined a modern intimates collection inspired by the guy who made suits for Elvis Presley, Hank Williams and Roy Rogers?
In fact, the Rhinestone Cowgirl collection from Brooklyn indie duo Daisy and Elizabeth wasn’t just influenced by the embroidered western suits created by Nudie Cohn, it was a true collaboration with his granddaughter, who re-opened the legendary Nudie’s Rodeo Tailor store in California last year.
Daisy and Elizabeth‘s 9-piece capsule collection features the kind of western-themed embroidery and rhinestone embellishments that once adorned suits crafted by Nudie Cohn for everyone from Elton John to Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash and even Ronald Reagan.
The collection is an affectionate tribute not just to Nudie, but to many of the stars who sported his most famous creations. There’s a ‘Rocket Man’ bra, panty and garter set named for Elton, a ‘Hank’ camisole named for Hank Williams, and a ‘Wagoner’ set named for stylish country singer Porter Wagoner.
