Risqué presents Bordelle’s Japonisme: Chapter 2
Following the success of Japonisme: Chapter 1, Bordelle’s irresistible SS17 collection emanates from a deeper exploration of Japanese history and culture. Juxtaposing structural samurai elements, exquisite lace, sports-chic and an S&M sensuality to create a richly evocative collection.
In homage to Tomoe Goza, the most famous female Japanese samurai of the 12th century. Tomoe, the fearless and fashion-forward selection, blends structural signature customised elastic panelling, soft sheer mesh and opulent 24K gold plated hardware. Not for the faint hearted, the Tomoe range is a tantalising mix of seductive showpieces and show-stopping accessories. “Tomoe was especially beautiful, with white skin, long hair, and charming features. She was also a remarkably strong archer, and as a swordswoman she was a warrior worth a thousand, ready to confront a demon or a god, mounted or on foot.” — The Tale of the Heike. The desire to create exquisite and innovative pieces remains at the forefront of the collection, with opulence and originality the foundations of each Bordelle design.
