Welcome to the Signature collection
Welcome to the Signature collection, a showcase of the uniquely seductive work of Dutch lingerie designer Marlies Dekkers.
Spanning more than 20 years in time, Marlies’ illustrious career in lingerie design has always been dominated by her ambition to frame the wearer’s beauty at every opportunity, thereby boosting the confidence of the many women who adore her distinctive designs.
As a self-proclaimed feminist and someone who has championed the plight of women around the world for many years, Marlies literally makes it her business to conceptualise and design from a female perspective, rather than with the sexual gratification of men in mind.
The result, epitomised by the output of the Signature collection, is a celebration of the female form – with all of its perfect imperfections. It’s an approach, born of Marlies’ deep understanding of the female psyche and her formidable creative talents, that has won her many followers over the years.
So, lose yourself in the pages that follow, and embark on a journey that always ends at the same destination for the wearer of Marlies’ designs: a supreme sense of self-confidence.
REFLECTIONS FROM YOUR MIRROR
FOR THE WOMEN OF THE WORLD
Between king and QUEEN
Who is Tasya van Ree? The mysterious girl in the big black hat has been fascinating art connoisseurs and fashion lovers alike since she burst onto the scene with her stunning black-and-white photographs of celebrities like Michelle Rodriguez and (one-time lover) Amber Heard. I asked the Hawaiian-born visual artist of Dutch-Japanese ancestry (41) about her art and soul. “Between both King and Queen is where I exist.”
Sara Mearns (31) is New York City Ballet’s boldest ballerina. A passionate, intense dancer, she started dancing at 3 and starred in Swan Lake when she was only 19. But instead of resting on her laurels, Sara has kept challenging herself with daring projects, from a collaboration with hip-hop dancers to a leading role in a Broadway show. I talked with the fierce Swan Queen about sacrifices, body confidence, and how to turn pain into gain. “I’m not the typical skinny, tall, long-neck kind of ballerina.”
The art of love!
