Les Jupons de Tess is a French lingerie label creating collections inspired by the elegance of the 18th century woman.
It is an era characterised by the ‘Art de la toilette’ and female ‘coquetterie’.
Symbols of the period, such as frills and ribbons, adorn the various styles.
These “Boudoir” collections have been updated to create a glamorous range of corsetry and lingerie for a woman who, depending on her mood, wants to be flirtatious, seductive or mischievous.
The features that most strongly evoke this period include bodices with fitted corsets, the use of silk, pieces in sheer cotton, high-waisted chiffon gowns…
Melting nostalgic inspirations, from the 18th century and cabarets from the roaring twenties, with an absolute modernity.
The result is a delicate collection, using finely worked, elegant and luxurious fabrics.
Layers of chiffon, “Leavers” lace and silks combine to create a couture feel.
Inspiration sometimes starts with a single detail which then takes shape. It could be a neckline, a sleeve, a pattern, a way of tying a ribbon…and the imagination does the rest.
The majority of these pieces can be worn as underwear or outerwear.
Corsets as belts, camisoles as tops, slips as tunics, cotton pieces as beachwear…
The styles available are: underwired bras, halter neck triangle bras, smocked cotton bra tops, camisoles, slip sets, thongs, briefs, shorts, full briefs, corsets, suspender belts, and “soft” basques.
