LINGERIE & LACE
  1. LACE UP!
    LACE UP!
    Corsetry can be a form of art… As much as photography, music or film. There’s a story in antique custom corsets, as in every antique garment, a story that doesn’t exist in today´s mass-produced fashion. Corsets and stays are boudoir and private colllections worldwide best-bets because of their beauty and stiffness, shape and detailings, and most important, because they suggest a seductive but unnatural femine shape. We only deal with antique corsets dating from the 18th century to the early 20th. Historical corsets with story.
  2. THE PETTICOAT AFFAIR
    THE PETTICOAT AFFAIR
    Victorian and Edwardian petticoats make wonderful summer skirts and wedding dresses. These petticoats are often lavishly trimmed with lace and/or embroidery, which is too pretty to hide. Lingerie from the Belle Époque is highly collectible and treasured by the collectors because it is as opulent as romantic. Our variety of beautiful petticoats dating from the early 19th century to the Edwardian era will make any lady feel like a princess!
  3. WHITERIA

    Today´s garments don´t exhibit the craftmanship and detailing that yesterday´s do. Lingerie is no exception, in fact, there´s nothing as appealing, romantic, intriguing and tempting for collectors than antique undergarments.... But also for wearing again! Our selection of "whites" includes petticoats, bloomers, pantaloons, corset covers,, slips, nightgowns, camisoles, bed jackets, peignoirs and teddies. Indulge in white with details such as silk bows, fancy lace or stunning embroidery.

  6. THE FULLNESS EFFECT
    THE FULLNESS EFFECT
    To achieve the bell-shape silhouette, erly 19th century women wore several starched petticoats until the introduction of the caged crinole or hoop skirt in the mid 1850s. Early horse hair and cotton, and wired crinolines, silk and other nice folds of fabric bustles for the discerning collector adorn our studio from time to time, while full pettticoats are always present among our stock.
