Lingerie is the first port of call at Christmas, when men get stuck on what to buy that special someone. But is spending £3,000 or more on some sexy lingerie a bit much? We think so but it’s just so pretty!
Bordelle are a London-based couture lingerie label, and they’ve created the most dazzling capsule collection we’ve ever seen. Exclusively for Selfridges, the 3 styles are to die for and with price tags in excess of £3,000, we’re hoping our lottery numbers come up! The stunning pieces will launch this week, but if you’re contemplating splashing out there will only by 3 of each made, so you better act fast!
“The brand has been going for five years now, and we really wanted to create something really decadent this Christmas,” explained Bordelle founder and designer, Alex Popa. “Each piece is handmade and numbered one, two or three of three. The pieces use gold filigree, Swarovski crystals, the most luxurious fabrics – and each one takes seven to ten days to make. Completely made to order, it’s our most couture collection yet.”
Bordelle have made an impressive name for themselves since launching in 2009. Popa has given stylish women lingerie that is incredibly sexy, but steers clear of being ‘thrashy’. With their high quality and their absolutely dazzling designs, Bordelle have created an impressive following.
“We’ve got an amazing client base,” Popa added. “Stores like Selfridges have been supportive right from the beginning and our clients’ feedback has really helped me develop and change the range. They know what they want and we’ve added colours and fabrics in response to what they need. The new accessories range – paddles and bracelets – will be the next focus, and we’ll be developing our swimwear too.”
