Our Story

Join us in discovering the story of how unique design, innovation and outstanding quality has shaped Atelier Bordelle through the years. Scroll down to discover where we are now and how it all began.



Dangerously Beautiful

That which is dangerous to us can often draw us in with its beauty.

Designed and developed from start to finish during the 2020 pandemic, SS21 showcases a unique selection of pieces inspired by the beautiful and sometimes devastating Mother Nature.

Named after volcano Mauna Kea, the sensual Kea range showcases a bespoke Swiss embroidered voile in vibrant colourways, with a hand-drawn design outlining a contour map of Icelandic glaciers and waterways.

Rey, shortened from Reynisfjara, is named after an infamously dangerous black sand beach on the South Coast of Iceland. Soft recycled fabrics in contemporary shapes are contrasted with bespoke oversized components inspired by motorbike machinery.

AW20|21 sees an exciting expansion into Womenswear for Bordelle, introducing a small capsule of luxury Ready-to-Wear separates designed to be worn with our lingerie collections. Modern and elegant, the complementary garments represent a luxurious mix of subversive sophistication inspired by our most iconic and experimental designs. Memorable, provocative, and never without a reaction.

All pieces are made from 100% silk in two beautifully simplistic colourways; Black and Fawn.

Set Summer Ablaze

Suggestive of hot summer nights, bold and striking colours and exotic flora and fauna found in Mexico, AW20|21 is a luxurious feast for the senses.

The Botanica embroidered collection is both effortlessly contemporary and fiercely sensual. The bespoke Swiss embroidery incorporates abstract stitching inspired by plants and cacti originating from Mexico, with clashing multicoloured threads. Embroidered onto tulle made from 100% recycled polymers, the collection is another step towards a more sustainable future for Bordelle.

Merida features structural, striking pieces inspired by some of the most influential architects and design collectives of Mexico. Constructed from oversized 24k gold plated hardware and wide band elastic, the collection is evocative of the true Bordelle bondage aesthetic, with the addition of soft mesh bodywear to flatter and contour the body.

‘Art for Art’s Sake’

SS20 is a celebration of the Victorian Aesthetic Movement, emphasising the lavish and extravagant tastes of the era.

The bespoke embroidery of Wilde is inspired by key inventions of the time – X-rays and photography. The voile design features abstract patterns of decaying leaves in bright jewel tones.

Named after London’s iconic botanical gardens, the Kew range is constructed from a complex embroidered elastic developed exclusively for Bordelle. The design features intricately trailing vines inspired by the elaborate tiling of Leighton House, the V&A and the work of William Morris.

Bordelle Revived

We are proud to introduce Bordelle Revived – limited edition ranges released every year with the aim to revive surplus material. We believe that the life of a fabric exceeds more than just one season. Despite careful forecasting to limit waste as much as possible, in modern manufacturing practices there is inevitably surplus fabric. The aim of Bordelle Revived is to breathe new life into materials that our customers loved the first time around, through innovative new designs.
