Making You Fancy Since 2003
Your undergarments are the first thing you put on in the morning and the last thing you take off at night. Let us take care of you. We are honest and sensitive to the narrative you are intent on telling with your body. Sweat, cellulite, stretch marks, tan lines, first tattoos, cesarean scars, breasts lost to cancer, messy hair, bruises, veins, augmentation, chipped nails, bad breath- bring it. Give us your body. Let us decorate you and help you frame what you love in the mirror. Desire is the energy of evolution. Lace is the material of brides, prostitutes, christenings, and funerals. Arrive vulnerable and leave empowered.
We curate a wide range of labels, from well know brands to small, independent designers. Because we are independent our orders are small. This also allows us to take risks on new designers and interesting accessories.
Birdies opened as a Valentine's pop up art installation in 2003. Developing into a boutique focused on luxurious inclusive beauty, accessible quality and independent designers, Birdies carries all sizes and offers a relaxed and calm atmosphere for self-celebration and gift-giving.We are singular and independent- located in the Creative Crossroads and have grown our feathers in an emerging art's neighborhood among galleries, local restaurants and other unique shops.
Elegantly narrated and beautifully edited, Birdies reads as a cross between a 1920’s apothecary and a Turkish boudoir. High-end intimates, French hosiery, and well-chosen resort pieces rest folded by size and shape in antique oak cases and glass front drawers. Birdies is owned and operated by Peregrine Honig and Alexis Burggrabe.
Professional number cruncher and prosecco lover, Alexis can be found cleaning up after her two kids' enthusiasm for chocolate fondue, fundraising for Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, and tracking down that bodysuit order from the new Polish designer she met in New York.
Peregrine is the cofounder of Birdies. Fine artist, reality television second and Senior Artistic Director of The West 18th Street Fashion Show, Peregrine is the stylist behind Birdies' photoshoots and the hands behind the posters.
Thank you to our models, photographers, and web designer.
