Belgium-based lingerie label La Fille d’O brings the avant-garde to the everyday with highly creative collections which combine with excellent fit. Versatile pieces act as lingerie or swimwear or can be used for fashion styling. The brand also designs for breast-feeding mothers and women recovering from mastectomy, showing La Fille d’O supports women in more ways than one.
The S/S 2015 collection is inspired by the work of artist Yves Klein and his use of the female nude as a live brush. Covering his models in blue paint he would press them upon his canvas to create abstract artworks.
Murielle Scherre, owner and designer of the brand shares mood imagery and previews some pieces from the S/S 15 collection, answering a few questions about inspiration and design ethos.
