THE MARLIES DEKKERS CARE BRA
"This season, in addition to our black and ivory versions, I have designed a limited-edition Care Bra in a mysterious, deep blue fabric and added silver lurex accents for a subtle sparkle. As an ode to Queen of Crime Agatha Christie, I placed a silver-metal talisman, shaped like a miniature notebook and reading glasses, at the center of the bra. Together with illustrator Emmanuel Katsaros I made a special illustration of our 3-piece collection, emphasizing a theme of ‘strength’. The strength can be seen in the women’s hands. They represent personal strength, but also the strength created by women supporting other women in a time of need. The reason I made the women quite glam is because I strongly believe that every woman is beautiful and feminine, also after a life-changing event like breast cancer."
