French lingerie label Aubade has teamed up with Iris van Herpen for a fall 2022 capsule collection infused with the Dutch couturier’s organic yet graphic sensibility, that will be available exclusively from Inner Secrets Lingerie in South Africa.
Named “Sensory Illusion,” the 10-piece line will include four bra styles, three bottoms as well as a bodysuit, nightie and waist-cincher, which will be available from December 2022, just in time for Christmas.
Iris Van Herpen is a Dutch fashion designer who is widely recognised as being one of the most talented and avant-garde fashion designers, constantly pushing the boundaries within her field. Since 2011, she has been a guest member of the Paris Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture (Haute Couture Trade Association), which forms part of the Fédération Française de la Couture.
The collaboration immerses us in a magical botanical world where the body moves in harmony with nature. Iris Van Herpen has taken her inspiration from nature, exploring its fragility as well as its pulsating vitality to create this unique collection. Embroidery representing fluttering leaves becomes a mystical kind of decorative ornament for the female body.
Bra sizes will run up to a G cup in certain styles, while bottoms will go from an XS to an XXL.
Previous designer collaborations for the lingerie specialist include Christian Lacroix, Viktor & Rolf and most recently, the Karl Lagerfeld label for winter 2021.
