INTIMACY

Lacing, interlacing, unlacing...

Going way back to Marie-Antoinette's corset and to trompe-l'oeil lacing, the road to seduction has always been -and still is- a deliciously winding road.

Let's say it straight out: laces are a fantasy of their own. And yet, the first laces in the history of lingerie, which would hold in corsets (and even before that, in the Middle Ages, those who held the belts women would wear to reduce their waistline), were demonised and blamed for everything.

But, although it is true that corsets were like objects of torture for a long time, they have also been a beautiful central piece in the history of sensuality. For example, Horst P. Horst’s legendary black and white photo, where a woman can be seen from behind with her corset half-opened, or Jean Paul Gaultier’s legendary corsets...

Beyond the object in itself, it is its ornaments, the laces, that add all the spice. Today, laces remain a delicacy we treat ourselves with and we share, from trompe-l'oeil cross-braces the finger gently caresses as on the Bahia or La Belle aux Camélias bras, the Courbes Divines bralette or the gorgeous Passion Nocturne basque from Aubade's autumn-winter collection.
