In the Atelier: Paloma Casile

| Lingerie


Paris and lingerie go hand-in-hand; like champagne for celebrations or leather and lace. We can’t simply have one without the other . . . well, technically you could, but the question then becomes would you really want to? (Our answer is no.) Up first in our newly-launched Emerging Designer Program is Paloma Casile. Her eponymous label is the perfect marriage of Parisian romanticism and luxury craftsmanship…and we’re officially obsessed. A peek inside her atelier below…

Design Philosophy
Quality, originality, and exceptional fit are my guidelines when I draw my collections.

On Inspiration
I have the chance to live in Paris where you have so many things to see – from architecture details, to a girl I see on the Paris metro, books, music, films…I’m inspired by so many things. The Lionel line comes from my addiction to Mad Men, and the tree embroidery comes from a friend’s tattoo.

On Designing
When an idea becomes a real bra or panty, it’s the most satisfying part in designing.

Lingerie Should Make Women Feel…
I want them to feel beautiful. The aim of lingerie is to enhance a woman’s body.

Like the little black dress, the little black set in gorgeous lace!

When not working, you can be found…
Reading books on the metro, walking with my dog on Paris streets or trying some new restaurants with my friends.
