What is better than one favourite Bra?…Two of them….

by Marlies Dekkers

It may not be the end of the world, but when your favourite perfume, eye shadow or sex toy is discontinued, it can sure feel that way!

Wolford’s indestructible stay-ups, Moroccan Oil’s miraculous hair mask; what would I do without my favourites? And so I buy them by the dozen. Yes, when my annual box of Wolford hoisery arrives, I feel a bit like my own sugar daddy. But you know what? I’m worth it.

I even find myself desperately collecting my own lingerie. For a few years now, my favourite bra has been the tough, sexy Gloria with the macho suspender straps. I wear it about 4 times a week and luckily I own at least 7 versions of it; from the classic pinstripe to the latest sweet summer tweed. For every mood, a Gloria.

The secret of great style is knowing what works for you. To not blindly follow every trend, but stay loyal to yourself. I get so excited when women tell me they own the Dame de Paris in 10 different colours, or when Sarah Jessica Parker is spotted in yet another Triangle bra!

You know what you like, ladies! And I support that. So I decided to celebrate with a special promotion:

2nd Bra 50% off – Buy your favourite bra in a basic colour, and receive a 50% discount on a seasonal colour variation! Available until the 31st of May.

Happy Women’s Day! I am extra excited about this edition, because wow, what a year it’s been for feminism! This is the year that we went global; that we showed up with our money, our bodies, our time and our voices to show the world: this is OUR time!

Effortless EXPRESSION

by marlies|dekkers

When I think of someone who is the embodiment of the highest level of expression, I have to think of German opera superstar Nadja Michael (47). This fearless feminine feminist is absolutely unforgettable in roles like Medea, Salomé and Lady Macbeth, performing phenomenally not just as a singer, but also a dancer and actress. How does she do it?

Fearless FUN

She started out as a contestant on the Norwegian version of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’; a few years later her debut single ‘Sunrise’ reached triple platinum status. But what makes Norwegian/Cuban star Alexandra Joner (27) such a feminine feminist icon is the fearless fun with which she expresses herself; in her singing and acting, but also in her fabulously sexy looks (often wearing marlies|dekkers, of course!). “I am fighting to make ‘sexy’ a positive thing!”

LUST for LIGHT

With her stunning staged photographs, Dutch artist Marie Cécile Thijs (1965) connects the past with the present in an intensely poetic, painterly way. Originally a lawyer, she decided more than fifteen years ago to follow her love for the camera. In just a short period of time, Marie Cécile became an internationally acclaimed artist whose works are included in the collections of museums like the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and the Museum of Photographic Arts San Diego. She has also presented her art at TEFAF (widely regarded as the world’s pre-eminent fair of art and antiques), Art Miami and Photo Shanghai. For her signature series ‘White Collar’, Marie Cécile photographed the only surviving 17th-century pleated ruff in the world, then digitally added it to her models for an almost surreal, mesmerizing result.
