Underwear as outwear is no new concept, but simmering in the depths of south London is a designer that has cooked up a sumptuous melting pot of lingerie, 90s spirit and athleisure – with a seductively earthy colour palette and concoction of unexpected textures to boot.
The buzzy brand is the brainchild of namesake designer Charlotte Knowles and partner Alexandre Arsenault, offering up the edgier remedy to shapewear. Forget all archaic preconceptions about unbecoming Bridget Jones-esque Spanx. You thunk!
A spectrum of nudes floods the label’s feminine pieces: from toffee coloured leathers, dust-grey sheers and alabaster bralets with feather prints.
And deconstructed corsets sculpt the body. But even harnessed cut-out bondage have a softness layered over fluttery lilacs.
