Last week we teamed up with New York’s hottest designer lingerie store, Journelle for the #Bordelle #incommand Instagram takeover. Revealing some of our inner secrets, we gave Journelle’s followers a sneak peek into the ever mischievous World of Bordelle.

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.

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.
