We are happy to present our latest passion project collaboration Flower Hopes. Flower Hopes is a Skivvies capsule collection we created with Jena Malone and her band The Shoe. The Shoe song "Dead Flower Hopes" inspired the collection, which includes beautiful macrame applique bralettes, bodysuits, and panties all in unusual flower shades. Our collection like the Dead Flower Hopes song is intended to empower women to celebrate their bodies and feel beautiful in their skin. We hope our capsule collection will inspire women to look to themselves to find confidence peace in their own unique beauty. Please enjoy the Dead Flower Hopes music video included below.

FOR LOVE & LEMONS: YOU HAVE BEEN VOCAL DURING THE SKIVVIES COLLABORATION ABOUT WANTING WOMEN TO FEEL COMFORTABLE IN THEIR SKIN AND EMPOWERED. DO YOU HAVE A MESSAGE FOR ALL OUR LOVELY FEMALE READERS?

I have a million!!! Because I still wake up some days myself and forget my own perfect beauty. I get swayed by the heavy comparison of what I am versus what other women are. I get down on myself when I look in the mirror. And I look at my body sometimes and wish it looked different. This is natural and part of the human condition, I'm learning. What is unnatural is allowing our beautiful minds to live in this state instead of laughing at these impulses. Setting up reminders for ourselves to help remember the real, authentic beauty in the world. What helps me the most is realizing the moments in my life when I felt most beautiful and happy and content - had nothing to do with my physical image and had everything to do with my heart. When your heart is happy and light you shine with a radiance no perfectly lit, photoshopped image can beat.


FOR LOVE & LEMONS: BESIDES YOUR SKIVVIES COLLABORATION, WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PROJECT YOU ARE WORKING ON? :)

Right now every part of my life is work, and in turn every part is creating. With film and music and photos and art and being a good sister there are so many things that humble me every day. My favorite project right now is learning to manifest my true desires out of the world. Not just my everyday needs.

FOR LOVE & LEMONS: WE KNOW YOUR BAND, THE SHOE WITH LEM JAY IGNACIO - WHAT INSPIRES YOUR MUSICAL CREATIVE PROCESS & ARTISTIC VISION THE MOST?

People. I get the most inspiration from people I meet and from strangers I see on the street. Second is the awe struck I get when I’m in nature.

FOR LOVE & LEMONS: ANY WORDS TO LIVE BY?

Learn to mediate. Drink a lot of water. Don’t worry about finding love, the simple truth is you ARE love.

FOR LOVE & LEMONS: WHAT IS A DAY IN THE LIFE FOR JENA MALONE?

Busy busy busy right now!! Every day is so different. Today I spent mostly walking around my house on my phone catching up on work and returning emails from different laying positions all over my house. Porch, bed, couch, floor.. repeat. And yesterday I was ending a ten day adventure solo traveling thru Myanmar.

FOR LOVE & LEMONS: WHAT DOES #DOWNTOYOURSKIVVIES MEAN TO YOU?

It means get down to the truth of the matter. Im very free with getting naked and feeling comfortable in your own skin. And when I heard that expression I knew we had to work together. :)
