Marlies Dekkers presented her new lingerie collection at the one-off marlies|dekkers clubnight in Rotterdam. Over 330 Dutch and international guests were the first to experience the Awaken Your Senses lingerie collection, highlighted with a choreographed dance depicting four women’s sensual fantasies. During the show, sensual stories written by Marlies Dekkers herself were read aloud and a string quartet and 25-member choir mesmerized the crowd.
The new collection consists of four styles with a new signature reminiscent of women’s fantasies, featuring fabrics that are usually used in outerwear: denim, leather, silk and pinstripes. Necklines are framed with a type of shoulder strap entirely new in the world of lingerie, and the choice of using outerwear fabric proves that lingerie can be seen as a part of your outfit.
“I went looking for the perfect bra that would match a certain mood. When I feel provocative and I feel like having an exciting evening, I want the perfect leather bra that fits well and is fashionable at the same time. I managed to design the Rolls Royce of leather bras that has my characteristic perfect fit and a highly provocative design. I did the same with the denim, silk and pinstripe bras. A different set for every fantasy,” says Marlies Dekkers.
Styles in the Awaken Your Senses collection are: Calamity Jane, a denim push-up set with jeans stitching and leather look shoulder straps for the liberated cowgirl; the super feminine Mulholland Drive, a shiny silk push-up set with stitched circles on the cup; Femme Fatale, a sexy black leather bra with extra push-up for the ultimate seduction; and Gloria, a black push-up and balcony pinstripe set for the real tough ladies.
