Ampere's Kickstarter Campaign for Their Second Collection

Remember Ampere—the lingerie line launched online? Well, co-founders Jiabei Chen and Yun Ah Lee are ready to launch their second collection, and have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to seek funding. "Collection II" promises a silk t-shirt bra, the perfect strapless bra, and of course, matching bottoms in a thong and lace brief styles.

I was curious to know what they learned from the launch of their first collection that influenced the choices for their second. Yun Ah said, "We learned a tremendous amount from our first collection about what women need and want. We want to take all of that feedback and continue to improve our upcoming collections. Most importantly, we learned that all women want beautiful, comfortable, well fitting lingerie without having to pay an arm and a leg for it—which is what Ampere is all about!"

To complement the first collection's all black debut, Collection II will be nude-coloured, which is exciting for them—"We are looking forward to diversifying our color and style options for our new collection. Also, we are excited about creating the best strapless bra the lingerie market has ever seen. All of our new products will be nude and a bit simpler, while still luxurious and beautiful."

I'm personally looking forward to the promise of the "best strapless bra the lingerie market has ever seen"! Good luck to the Ampere ladies, and hopefully Collection II will arrive soon.

AMPERE - Better Bras, Better Lingerie Experience

Baby, It's Cold Outside.

There's a blizzard underway in NYC (which I'm hoping doesn't get as bad as everyone's predicting, knock on wood) but I've got my lingerie to keep me warm. Especially this new "Chelsea" set from new luxury-lingerie line Ampere. Co-founder Jiabei Chen invited a few lucky ladies to an afternoon tea last weekend to preview the debut pieces from Ampere and for us to treat ourselves to a pretty pre-Valentine's Day something.

As I noted on Facebook the other day, even though the debut pieces from Ampere are limited to three styles (two bra/thong sets & a beautiful silk romper), the designs are so obviously tailored to the modern Manhattan power woman. With style names like "Chelsea", "Madison", and "Gramercy", the debut collection solidifies the brand's connection to New York City, but when you further examine the pieces, you understand the women who also inspires Ampere. She's the next generation of power women—beautiful, ambitious, incredibly smart, but still appreciates the small boost of je ne sais quoi that fine lingerie can inject into her everyday attitude—much like the ladies I met at the afternoon tea event.

I'll follow up with another post about sizing. I'm currently breaking in my new bra so I'll have more updates on sizing tips after that!

And if you're in the path of Blizzard Nemo... stay warm, stay safe!
