Spring Summer 15 is coming


Take a look behind at the inspiration that led us to designing the Spring Summer collection. We took a tour of famous cabarets past and present, for a collection inspired by the all-singing, all-dancing, high-kicking showgirls that have graced their stages.

We looked to ultimate showgirl Kiki, the Queen of Montparnasse and her fabulously debauched lifestyle. Her independent spirit has been channeled into the collection’s key looks – the Cabaret Harness, which can be worn alone in the boudoir, or layered over evening looks to add a splash of sauciness; and the Vedette Dress, a satin elastic strapping dress affixed with oversized gold-plated hardware for that signature Bordelle BDSM flavour.

We launch the collection this week with Bordelle signature pieces and a flash of daring colour.

Bring on the Dark Knights

As Autumn arrives so do the final pieces of AW14-15 and who doesn't love a bit of anticipation to heat up the mood. When it comes to these two - it was certainly worth the wait.

The Pearly Waspie is the ultimate Bordelle Collection piece. Exclusively handcrafted in the atelier from a mix of signature elastic panels, silk satin inserts and leather fringing. Finished with 18k gold plated hardware and four leather tassel suspenders for pure S&M luxe.

Equally as extravagant, The Malena Dress will dominate any boudoir. The signature elastic panels sculpt the perfect hourglass with vibrant silk satin inserts and delicate French leavers lace.

Now all we need are the dark knights!

We Pay Homage to Horst

As the Horst retrospective opens at the V&A Museum we want to take a minute to pay homage to the photographer that has  such a huge influence on Bordelle. He's taken us through Haute Couture, Surrealism, Stage and Screen, Travel, Nature, Nudes, Fashion in Colour and Interiors bringing a sense of the sensual into all to of his pieces. Like any good sensual temptress he uses light and atmosphere to conjure up images that excite the soul.  We'll be visiting the exhibition for inspiration for the next collection.

Behind the Autumn Winter 14 collection - our inspiration.


As we launch our final pieces of the Autumn Winter collection and we say goodbye to the last days of summer we wanted to reveal a little more about our inspiration behind the Autumn Winter 14 collection.
We looked to the allure of Italian leading ladies Sophia Loren, Bianca Balti and Monica Belluci who embrace pearls as a way to show their innate femininity. With the roots of this inspiration in London's iconic Pearly Queens we designed pieces with strategically placed Swarovski pearl embellishments to highlight every curve. To add the extra boudoir appeal to this collection, came the addition of delicate French eyelash lace whilst staying true to the Bordelle signature with Chinese silk panels and satin straps with each piece keeping a daring appeal.

For that extra touch of luxury we doused the pieces in 18k gold hard wear and leather fringing and tassels.

Look out for the our last piece of the collection launching during London Fashion Week.
