  • Taking our time to create the perfect product for you is important to us. Designed in France, our fashion and sportswear designers collaborate with technical specialists to create stylish pieces that are feminine and functional.  We consider every silhouette, seam, and stitch, testing pieces until they meet our high-performance standards. We design pieces that are made to last, ensuring that your pick is a true, timeless investment piece. 

  • We use the highest quality fabrics to craft our pieces. We source them from Italian textile milles that make technical materials for elite sportswear brands and fashion houses. We make sure that our pieces are perfect for your workout by using technical fabrics that are moisture wicking and quick drying. We use blends of polyamide, elastane, and cotton, that all provide UV protection, pile resistance, breathability, and multi-way stretch.  Lycra fibers guarantee long-lasting stretch and shape recovery, allowing a contoured, comfortable fit. The fabrics we use are the same ones used by Olympic cycling teams, which shows just how high-performing they are.

  • We pride ourselves in using European only manufacturers. One of them is among the oldest corset makers in France, which also produces the beautiful costumes used in the Opera de Paris ballet. Another is located in Lithuania, specialising in highly technical apparel for top fitness brands and Olympic teams. We also work with some of the best factories in Portugal. Our factories are committed to ethical and sustainable production, and take care of their employees. We visit them regularly and work closely with factory workers, many of whom have spent decades in the industry. Most of all, we see our factories as long term partners, and work hard with them to bring you the best product possible.

  • We painstakingly ensure that every garment is perfect. Informed by traditional corset design, we apply expert tailoring skills to achieve the perfect fit. Specialist seaming techniques such as bonding, zig-zag stitching and overlocking secure panels and make our clothing as strong as it is comfortable. Each design goes through multiple rounds of professional testing to ensure durability and superior quality.

  • Our fabrics are technical fabrics and have been treated with special washes to ensure moisture wicking, breathability, and other properties. Because of this, you should take special care when washing our garments. Similar to other technical apparel, they should be washed in a machine at 30 degrees Celsius/85 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to avoid tumble drying, dry cleaning, bleach, and fabric softener, as this may effect the longevity of your piece.

  • The quality and care with which we make our designs mean that our pieces are true, durable investment pieces. We select sustainable options where technically possible, and are working hard at the moment to make our pieces and our business processes more environmentally friendly. Included in this conscious mindset is our new seamless collection, which is crafted from a recycled fiber called Q-Nova, an industry leading choice for environmental conservation.
