Jonquil was established by Diane Samandi and has been designing elegant vintage inspired lingerie for the last 28 years. Based in California, the company was inspired by Diane’s silent movie actress aunt and her fashion illustrating grandmother. The grace and style of old Hollywood is captured in all of her designs.
