Timelessly gorgeous and unapologetically badass, Peta Wilson
encompasses empowerment and making her dreams come true. You may have
watched Peta in La Femme Nikita, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,
or Superman Returns, among other films. Not only is she a Hollywood ﬁlm
star, entrepreneur, and mother; she is a lingerie mogul. The Indie
Chicks celebrate the launch of Wylie Wilson, Peta’s latest production.
Wylie Wilson is not only a lingerie company, it’s Peta’s passion
project. The company is an endeavor that captures her masterful
combination of imagination and fun that celebrates femininity. As her
biggest fan I can’t wait for women around the world to fall in love with
Wylie Wilson and Get Wylie!

The biggest role that has impacted my life, I have to say, is that of
becoming a mother. Acting roles all require the same amount of work for
me, I don’t have a favorite. It’s all fabulous grown up make believe.
It’s the funniest job in the world, really!
I wasn’t thinking about it at the time. I just started making panties
as a way to express myself creatively between movie gigs. I started
making them as gifts for friends and created each to be as unique as the
girlfriend I was making them for. So, I just kept making them,
imagining all the different girls who might like them. Someone on the
phone asked me to describe the panties to them, and I said, “I guess
they are kind of ‘Wylie,’ my word for indescribable.” I just started
creating one day after shopping and I noticed that everything I saw as
underwear was kind of the same. Varying quality and prices, but
essentially they were all the same. I thought, “What if you made them
like this, if you used fabrics that aren’t seen on panties normally –
the fabrics I like that are a little different. So I made them. I had a
friend come for dinner who is a famous costume designer, and she loved
them and gave them as Christmas presents to actresses she had worked
with. They were a hit! She encouraged me and here I am, two years down
the track with a full collection and my own commerce store…Who knew? I
really, really enjoy making them as much as I like making characters!
The pieces are very multipurpose and wearable. They can be worn to
the beach or on the dance floor. They’re perfect for any age, whether
you’re a preteen getting ready for a school dance, or a grandmother
unleashing your inner Wylie, these panties are for you! Everyone has a WYLIE side. Members
of my design team are excited about how the fabric combinations and
color palette are very unique. The pieces are more fun and playful.
There’s a one of a kind piece for every personality. Wylie is not for
your man, it’s for you!
By the end of 2014, my team and I see Wylie Wilson with stand-alone
stores within the US, distributed in key markets in Europe, Asia,
Australia, and South America, and announcement of new product

My inspirations come from cinema and painters; the color palettes of
directors, costume designers, and artists. I have a stack of books on my
design table. One days it’s Matisse, another day it’s Margritte,
Rothko, Kandinsky, Leger, Modigliani, Diego Rivera…it’s a long list. We
have over 200 one-of-a-kind pieces, and if you don’t see anything you
like we’ll happily design a panty for you!
Thank you for sharing Wylie with us, Peta! Everyone should get Wylie!
