THE MARLIES DEKKERS CARE BRA
Breast cancer awareness has always been a cause very close to my heart. From the beginning of my brand, I have had conversations with breast cancer survivors who told me about their struggles, needs and wishes. My dream was to help women reconquer their femininity damaged by the disease, and I knew what I had to do: design a special post-op bra. This season, in addition to the black and ivory versions, I have designed a limited-edition Care Bra in a mysterious, eggplant hue with silver lurex for a subtle sparkle. Referring to the formidable female pirate Cheng I Sao, I adorned the heart of the bra with an enamel talisman featuring our own pirate emblem. Et voilá, a combination of care, comfort and class.
