I believe a girl can never have too many bras
From the moment I start designing a bra until it is actually in the stores, takes about three years. The high quality standards and design techniques of marlies|dekkers lingerie need a development time like no other lingerie brand. My inspiration for a new collection always comes from a strong woman from nowadays or the past, who inspires me. To maximize the designing process I need to completely immerse myself in the new designer theme. I then breath, eat and sleep this theme before I can start with the designs. I can become infatuated with theme and start preparing my closet for the lingerie which is coming within a few years. By the moment the collection is finished, by closet is filled with clothes matching that particular collection. The Style Collection has been conceived for the woman who regards her lingerie as an integral part of every ensemble.
Every morning after I have finished my morning rituals of working out and having my oatmeal breakfast, the next stop is my closet. The first stop in my lingerie department. Since I am a women who regards her lingerie as an integral part of my outfit I start with a lingerie “questionnaire”. How do I feel today? Sexy, sensual, casual, bright, dark, calm, energetic? Fun choices I need to make before I can decide upon the perfect lingerie set for that day. Then the second stop is the rest of my outfit, where the most important question is: what complements my lingerie best! Maybe not the order you are used to but choosing my lingerie carefully and making sure it fits my mood, gives me extra energy and makes me feel beautiful, ready to conquer the world (ok, ready to handle that day).
Coming home for xmas
Confession: I am a total Xmas fanatic. I LIVE for the holiday season. While my usual taste can best be described as austere and intellectual, come Christmas, I’m into kitsch. Big time. Bring on the glitter, the glühwein and the sentimental songs!

Forget about stressful family gatherings and long, boring dinners; let me show you how to survive the (Christmas-) holidays in sexy style!
Embrace your dark side – get inspired for Halloween
Imagine if there were a night where it would be socially acceptable to indulge your deepest darkest dreams. An annual opportunity for women to dress like their sexual fantasies – be it a blood-thirsty vampire or a flirtatious nun – without getting ‘slut shamed’. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well there is a night just like that, and it happens to be one of my favorite moments of the year: Halloween.
