Origin: Canada

Fabric: Mercesrised cotton yarn, elastic

Brand: Maude Nibelungen


A knitted crop top and high-waisted knicker set, in a mercerised cotton yarn with black elastic neck and waistbands. The open knit has an organic variance in its stitch pattern, achieved by both garments being intricately hand knitted.

Montreal-based designer Maude Nibelungen has knitted since the age of 5. The brand moved into boudoirwear with its 2015 collection ‘Bleu Nuit’, offering a range of form fitting garments that blurred the lines between underwear and outerwear. All garments are hand made to order by Maude on an individual basis.
