Coco de Mer to launch lingerie line in collab with the V&A

Luxury lingerie brand Coco de Mer is set to launch four different AW18 ranges inspired by textile and ornaments found at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The move is part of a partnership between the museum and the London-based brand under the new vision of CEO Lucy Litwack.
The lingerie and nightwear collection sees items such as an English glass and gilt scent bottles from about the 1760s adapted into delicate golden embroidery, while William Morris’ Wreathnet furnishing fabric from 1882 informs a silk nightwear print.

The V&A and Coco de Mer share a passion for high quality

There is also a leaf motif inspired by a lustrous mother of pearl inlay found in the V&A’s collection of traditional Korean lacquerware, and a 17th century silk cushion cover inspires new floral embroidery detail. Lauren Sizeland, Head of Business Development and Licensing at the V&A said: “The V&A and Coco de Mer share a passion for high quality, exquisite design so we were delighted when they approached us about a line of luxury lingerie.”
