IRIS VAN HERPEN X AUBADE – Step into a unique botanical universe

For Fall/Winter 2022-2023, Aubade invites luxury brand Iris Van Herpen to create an exclusive capsule collection bringing the Dutch fashion designer’s unbounded creativity into the world of exquisitely crafted French lingerie.

Known for her other-worldly haute couture creations, Iris Van Herpen’s work breaks down the boundaries between exceptional artisanal craftsmanship and pioneering multi-disciplinary techniques. Always on the hunt for new creative challenges, the designer was intrigued by the corsetry expertise of Aubade, one of the leading French lingerie brands since 1958, and delved deep into its extensive archive. In a transformative meeting of minds, both houses came together around their shared passion for luxurious materials and intricate techniques, resulting in an exquisite 10-piece collection where seduction meets savoir-faire.

Named “Sensory Illusion”, the collaboration immerses us in a magical botanical world where the body’s movements mirror those of nature. Iris Van Herpen looked towards nature, exploring both its fragility and pulsating vitality, to create this one-of-a-kind collection where swirling leaf embroideries become mystical ornaments decorating the female body.
