Carine Gilson is renowned for her couture approach to lingerie, her use of traditionally-made silk and lace, and her meticulous attention to detail. This exclusive new collaboration combines the fine craftsmanship and elegant design of Carine Gilson with the empowering message of Kintsugi.
Handmade in Brussels, using the finest Caudry lace and Lyon silk, the collection was inspired by the ancient ceramic art of Kintsugi, which means ‘to join with gold’. As in traditional Kintsugi, striking lines of gold run through each design, reminding the wearer to celebrate their individuality rather than seek perfection.
‘I was delighted to work on this range with this pieces created exclusively for the Kintsugi universe,’ says Carine Gilson. It is a story that I have been writing with my brand for 30 years now, and I am happy to share this philosophy and process with Kintsugi founder Al Reem Al Tenaiji. Each piece in the collection is handmade and each piece is unique, just like the crack which lets the light in.’
