Kate Spade x The Lake and Stars: Lingerie You Need Now

At first glance, Kate Spade and The Lake and Stars' new collaboration is surprising—where one brand is filled with bright, happy cheeriness the other is roughed-up and slightly subversive. But it's the very essence of that mismatched chemistry—also found in salty chocolate, The Odd Couple and all of Jenna Lyons' outfits—that makes the duo's project so great.

The capsule lingerie line hits a hard-to-find spot between sexy and sweet with its thoughtfully balanced designs. Along with a contrasting palette of peach and hot pink, there's a boyish collar for every bow and mesh that reads more girly-girl than gym-class. And since the five pieces combine the best of both labels, they'll work in all kinds of wardrobes. For instance, the silky chemise: we could picture it either tight and curve-hugging à la Dita von Teese or more like Sofia Coppola would wear it, all drapey under an oversized Prada coat.

The one downside of ordering now? Your package will probably arrive after Valentine's Day—which really isn't a downside at all. Because isn't the underwear you want for the other 364 days of the year the best kind of all?
