We're talking the classy kind of lingerie, folks: no hot pink or neon leopard print here—for the most part. Delicate is the order of the day at this tiny but luxurious boutique, with its predominantly lacy collection of vintage-inspired finer things—which includes all manner of deliciously anachronistic garters, slips, and nightgowns. But this store's buyers also have a knack for choosing sleek-lined designs that maintain a modern and sexy feel, avoiding the pitfalls of frumpiness when experimenting with retro styles. It's easy to imagine any of Don Draper's women choosing the pieces at Williamsburg's Brooklyn Fox Lingerie as her evening wear of choice. If the overwhelming tangle of straps and frills starts to incur pangs of feminist guilt, the chilled-out staff helps reinforce that it's all about having fun. They boast sizes from A to G and clients from local Hasidic couples to well-known rock stars. Although the tag prices are hardly bargains, the chaotic sale bins can be worth rooting through for a deal. After all, these are undies so elegant that you could be tempted to leave your pants behind when walking out the door in the morning . . . but we don't advise it. 132 North 5th Street, Brooklyn, 718-599-1555, brooklynfox.com (11211)
