(Filed Under wholesale Lingerie News). Bordelle, a label founded on the concept of turning satin bandages into high-end lingerie, has introduced 19 lingerie styles under its Leather Accessories range for fall/winter 2011. The Leather range encompasses 25 total styles.
According to Alexandra Popa, who co-founded London-based Bordelle with Javier Suarez in 2007, for the coming season the company has introduced Couvert Angela, an adaptation of its best-selling elastic panel girdle dress, Angela. Couvert has a longer skirt than the original, as well as a solid elastic panel in the front so that it can be “worn as a bodycon [a trend that stands for ‘body-conscious’] dress on a daring night out!”
Other signature pieces are the webbed zip stockings designed for wear with a revealing harness, as well as babydoll dresses, a bodice bra and an expanded range of S&M-inspired patent leather and studded accessories. All styles are offered in black and sand shades with gold trim.
Bordelle’s retail prices range from £40 to £585, equivalent to approximately $65 to $959 at the current exchange rate. Lingerie and bodywear runs in sizes S through L, while accessories run in One Size.
Although she admitted that Bordelle’s size range is limited, Popa described pieces as fitting a variety of body types. “A feature of most of our styles is that they can be adjusted in several places for ease of fit, and a smaller range of sizes makes production much more efficient and easier to cope with,” she said. “We also offer a Bespoke [custom] service to registered member clients who come to our studio to be fitted professionally.”
Popa estimated that 65 retailers worldwide carry Bordelle, including Journelle in New York City and Miami, La Mode Lingerie in Houston and Nancy Meyer in Seattle. Select Victoria’s Secret stores also carry a limited collection of the brand’s lingerie sets.
