Lingerie Lundi!

Remember how in last weeks Lingerie Lundi! I focused on practical linge ("bras for bras sake")?  Yes, that was unusual... but I believe my latest linge discovery should quickly correct that petit détour.

Bordelle is a London based company specializing in couture "bodywear".  The company was founded in 2007 by Alexander Popa who then teamed up with designer Javier Suarez to create the very distinctive line.  

"Bordelle collections are characterized by body-con designs and anchored in a closely guarded proprietary technique that turns customized satin elastic bandages into a blend of lingerie and outerwear featuring a luxury S&M sensuality."

**Fun Fact: the brands big break came via a substantial order for Britney Spears' Circus tour!

I am really into the bodycon bandage dresses, but I can't really imagine how they would feel on, or even how to get them on. Definitely an intriguing line.

Looking back at past Lingerie Lundi's I realize I have featured a plurality of London based brands - it's funny, I have never particularly associated the UK with especially innovative, high-fashion lingerie, but the trend really is quite significant.

Hope you enjoyed this weeks feature.  Any thoughts on this post or the series as a whole?  I'd welcome any feedback, shoot me a comment!
Thanks for stopping by, Dolls!
as always, je vous aime énormément. xo Caitlin
