Jaiye’s launch marks exactly 1 year since it was first designed. Designing collections, picking fabric, developing shapes, and perfecting fit and lift is not always a smooth ride, and quality can never be fast-tracked.

I wanted to chat about our Jaiye collection from a technical point of view, and how we got to what we have launched.
The Brief is one of my favourite brief styles to date. It is an amalgamation of our stretch tulle/organic cotton brief (shape wise) mixed with some design features that I had found in Nubian Skin’s design archive. I am so glad I have finally let this shape be seen by the world! A classic full brief with a beautiful twist. Nubian Skin’s iconic gold hardware is on full display in the waist front, and tied together with Jaiye’s richly embroidered tulle, creates a comfortable shape in a beautiful aesthetic.
The Jaiye Suspender Belt is the second Suspender Belt Nubian Skin have released, and like the Plumetis Suspender, each one is posted to the customer with a complimentary pair of matching skin tone hold ups, so you don’t have to wait to create your perfect lingerie look, any longer than you have to! Jaiye’s vibrant royal blue, majestic yellow and leaf green botanicals, sits atop your skin with it’s nude tulle backing creating the illusion that it tattoos your skin alone, paired with gold hardware, adjustable straps to find your perfect length and a 3-step hook & eye to create your custom fit. The Suspender Belt is the perfect addition to any of the Jaiye combinations, but we particularly love it with Jaiye’s bra & brief, it is just the ultimate Woman of Colours lingerie dream.
A High Waist lover's dream, the High Waist Thong is another first for Nubian Skin. It was actually inspired by our Plumetis Bodysuit, with the way it is panelled down the front & back. Adding embroidery across front & back in angles was all that was needed to perfect the garment. Oh, and not to forget its ADORABLE and also functional back keyhole, allowing it to be put on and taken off with ease, at the same time as creating a cute, gold-hooked feature to finish it off.
