A high neck bralet and coordinating thong, crafted with a base of fine tulle and intricately embellished with layered lace appliqué in shades of metallic gold and black. These embellished panels are framed with panels of black silk satin and trimmed with velvet elastics. The garments are highly adjustable with decorative and functional velvet strapping, finished with gold plated metal hardware. Small golden Swarovski crystals embellish the non adjustable areas of the strapping.

Designer Céline Marie grew up in South Germany and went on to study Contour Fashion at London College Of Fashion, where she graduated from with first class honours in 2018. She honed her skills and appreciation for haute couture techniques at brands and designers such as Agent Provocateur, Julien MacDonald and Iris Van Herpen. Céline Marie’s visual inspirations and influences are realised through Hervé: a passion for Gothic Architecture, the aesthetics of the Renaissance and Baroque eras, Surreal art and technology, and the works of artists like H R Giger and Zdzisław Beksiński.
