GRADUATE COLLECTION

 

COLLECTION

REDÉCOUVERT

LA PERLA x MR PEARL

Collection Redécouverte represents a collaboration between LA PERLA and notorious corset maker Mark Pullin aka. MR. PEARL. Inspired by Italian heritage and French Savoir Faire, this collection is all about deconstructing, reconstructing and reviving femininity. Its initial design concept is rooted in historic French corsetry and evolves into a collection of contemporary structured intimate apparel marked by opulent elegance.

CONCEPT & RESEARCH

CHOU COCO

PLUS SIZE x DEBENHAMS

CHOU COCO is a brand created for Designers at Debenhams and caters to the plus size lingerie market. The challenge was to create a fashionable product for the commercial market which fits into the current product range of British retail house Debenhams. Chou Coco combines playful design elements with fresh silhouettes flattering on the female curves and cups. 

CONCEPT & RESEARCH

SENSUALITY OF PHYSICALITY

 NAOMI FILMER

Sensuality of Physicality is a collection inspired by conceptual jewellery designer Naomi Filmer. Every piece is lead by the female form, using the body as a catalyst to bring it to life. The project required a conceptual approach to translate Filmer's vision into a lingerie brand and create wearable pieces of art.
