“IntiMint truly reflects what was important to me in this collaboration; to create a luxury brand that is beautiful and really personal—at an affordable price,” says Burke-Charvet. “As an exclusively online collection, women will be empowered to have a strong voice in the brand and participate in our community in a meaningful way so I can’t wait to start the conversation with our customers!”
For the price, don’t expect fabrics to veer far from the polyester/rayon/nylon family.
The label’s inaugural collection includes lace thongs, briefs, boyshorts, bralettes, racerback tanks, robes, nightgowns, and loungewear separates that cost between $19.99 for a two pairs of panties to $79.96 for a scalloped-back negligee. IntiMint’s monthly $20 membership is applied as credit towards any item and is only charged when you make your first purchase. Members also get to skip months at no charge.
Still, for the price, don’t expect fabrics to veer far from the polyester/rayon/nylon family. With few alternatives to mall brands with iffy offshore labor standards, however, we know what we’d prefer to slip into.
