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.

As far as I am concerned, there is only one heiress to Edith Head’s throne, and that is the magnificent Arianne Phillips (53), twice Oscar-nominated costume designer and Madonna’s favorite style-collaborator. Like Edith, she is a tastemaker and visionary in both film and fashion. And just like her legendary predecessor, she is a feminist icon in her own right. I had the rare chance to interview Arianne and ask her about Madonna, feminism in Hollywood and why she thinks lingerie is ‘everything’. “We definitely do NOT like to hide it!”

In art school, many years ago during a nude model drawing class, I had a life changing insight: What if I, as an artist, used a woman’s body as my canvas? If you make a painting, someone will hang it on their wall. If you design a chair, someone will sit on it. But if you design lingerie, someone will wear it, and by doing so, complete your art! I had found my mission.

All my work as a feminist designer is inspired by muses. Powerful female icons from past and present. Although women have been marginalized for centuries, archetypes of female power have always been there. Through my designs, I bring them to you. To help us shape the world of modern-day feminism.
