I have collected vintage lingerie & slip dresses for over 20 years, focusing on the 20’s & 30’s eras of which I am consumed.
I love everything from this beautiful era of Decadence, Excess & Romance, from the architecture, jewellery to interiors & works of art. It is endlessly inspiring!
The languid approach to Luxury & wealth I find irresistible thus inspiring our Shell Belle Couture collections, our beautiful fabrics include washed silks.
Our vintage styled silk crepe-de-chine which are adorned with exclusive in-house designed embroidery or French leavers lace. Our vintage style silk Crepe de chine has meticulous applique French lace details which epitomize our luxury pieces.
