Lingerie photo shot with Lexi Lui for Mare Lupa:
“Marilupa is a new project using my 20 years technical experience making lingerie and swimwear to combine with my treasure trove of collected materials for a sheer indulgence into beautiful and non-standardised intimate clothing to wear for your wildness and your every pleasure. The world is drowning in a sea of overproduction and it’s hard for me to justify making anything more BUT…I do feel passionate about the special and the handmade. I only make what is wanted on an individual basis to keep it real, keep it human and make it precious. There is nothing I enjoy more than creating wonderful and exciting wearable treasure.
From hand dying silks and components to get imagined wonderland seaweed colours, finishing in crystals and freshwater pearls to developing design for fuller figures and large cup sizes my work is about celebrating the beauty and diversity of the female body
Marilupa mixes modern high-performance lingerie and swim fabrics with hand-dyed silks, antique laces, vintage jewellery and precious stones to create garments that are for unashamed, joyful and luxurious pleasure
Marilupa is a non-wasteful and sustainable working practice, about inclusivity, about design balance. I want to promote a female business model where everyone from worker to wearer is engaged, interested and nurtured.
We tailor make each garment individually in house so we can talk with you about any special wants or requirements, size adjustments, custom or bespoke orders, colour changes or anything at all that you could want to be made to exist.”
