Brand new boutique lingerie label iolé creates made-to-order intimate pieces in the heart of Melbourne, Australia, from a dedicated lingerie workshop that puts quality and ethical concerns at the forefront. With lashings of delicate lace and classic silhouettes that never go out of style, every item is handmade on the day it’s ordered, making iolé lingerie one of the most environmentally-friendly lingerie labels on the market today as there’s little waste when garments are crafted to order.
Many might expect this to mean long lead times, yet iolé defies expectations with the majority of orders being shipped within three business days. The team are also so confident about their premium garments, they offer lifetime sewing repairs on all pieces, truly living up to the idea that luxury lingerie should last for decades.
“Here at iolé, we don’t chase fads or trends, nor do we produce fast-fashion lingerie that is ‘in style’ for approximately three months before it’s consigned to the fashion history books. Our focus is on timeless, elegant styles that look as beautiful today as they did fifty years ago. From delicate lace briefs to sophisticated underwired bras with silk-front straps, iolé is a lingerie label that understands why certain shapes and silhouettes will never go out of style.”
Standout pieces from the inaugural collection include the Emmeleia Halter-Neck Bodysuit – a breath-taking silk-bound piece, with delicate embroidery and bust-wrapping to enhance shape and support. The Malika Hipster Brief is also a striking piece, with whisper-soft eyelash lace designed to sit lightly on the body, for a look that is pure luxury.
