PARIS, Apr 18, 2009 / FW/ — To many, lingerie is just underwear only seen in the privacy of one’s bedroom. Antwerp-trained Carine Gilson sees lingerie more than just an accessory; rather, she sees it as a delicacy, a precious item that is sensitive to the woman who wears it.
Aptly, Gilson named her label ‘Carine Gilson Lingerie Couture,’ a craft realization of a very specialized product. With the rigorous standards of her atelier in Brussels manned by highly qualified seamstresses, every piece is ‘created’ not just sewn. Novelty is a true currency, not just a term.
Carine Gilson, the label is focused in its domain – lingerie, the corsetterie, swimwear and cruise garments. All the collections, which are totally exclusive are elaborated with a remarkable know how worthy of a haute couture atelier.
The materials used are surprising – the magnificent Lyon’s silk, the lightest muslin, the most Chantilly laces, hence when they are called ‘fineries’ which is how underwear is called at times, the term finery is not just a word to describe Carine Gilson lingerie. The word “finery” defines it.
