Inspired by the beauty and grace of the female form in motion, the AW18|19 collection explores themes of movement in dance across three distinct ranges: Allegra, Amaya and Lea. Underlying themes of attitude, elegance and power flow undefined through the collection.
Designed to express the delicate balance between strength and elegance in Modern Ballet, Allegra features newly developed and luxuriously soft branded elastic and sports-luxe jersey with extensive adjustability, labelling it Bordelle’s most wearable collection to date. This collection sees the best-selling Bondage Wrap Bra reimagined as the ‘Allegra Wrap Bodice Bra’ in a brand new Rose colourway, in addition to the introduction of two new Soft Wrap Bra options helping to blur the lines between sportswear and lingerie. Feminine curves delicately wrap and flex around the body, while seductively revealing cut outs and 24K gold plated hardware maintain Bordelle’s signature bondage-luxe style.
The Amaya Range pays homage to the seductive and passionate art form of Flamenco and beautifully strong spirit of Spanish Flamenco dancer Carmen Amaya. Customised Swiss embroidered tulle appears in three distinctive colourways inspired by the Spanish Manton de Manila: Black, Rose and Burnt Red and Caramel and Powder Blue. We also see the redevelopment of the popular Adjustable Bodice Bra and Harness Brief in luxuriously feminine lace, two show-piece additions to this range. Developed exclusively for Bordelle’s AW18|19 collection, the Amaya lace features delicately embroidered Carnation flowers finished with a raw scalloped edge. This contrasting finish against the clean edges of satin bound panels explores both the combination of and distinction between masculinity and femininity. These fabrics combined with signature Bordelle satin elastic strapping and decadent 24K gold plated components make Amaya perfect for the modern romantic.
Inspired by the power and attitude of the ever evolving urban dance scene, the Lea range sees experimental street style reimagined in a condensed collection of daring crop tops and bodysuits alongside both seductively ouvert and everyday pieces. The collection features a soft, stretch open-knit mesh and sports-luxe jersey with new and exclusive Bordelle branded elastic, creating an incredibly wearable selection of pieces. This exceptionally experimental range finds inspiration in the multidimensional art of Vogueing and the intensity and power associated with this artistic form of dance, a true homage to the strength of the female form.
The AW18|19 collection sees three innovative new components: 24K gold plated slider with loop element to allow for structured strap detailing, 24K gold plated Bordelle branded suspender clips; redeveloped for strength and practicality to align with the new elevated luxury Bordelle aesthetic, and the new customised satin Bordelle branded elastic, a unique design developed to push the boundaries of modern luxury lingerie design.
