On her history with lingerie:
Lingerie is a fantasy: It is something that you dream about. For me, it started when I was 14: I saw a picture in a magazine and that was it, I was hooked. For my next birthday, I asked for a beautiful white lace body that I had seen in a shop window. This was a truly special gift for me because it was a womans present. I was not a woman yet, but it made me feel like one.
My sister and I love working together. This is our biggest project, so it is really personal. The pieces are so beautiful but not super-expensive, so we can reach more people. Who says women cant always have fun
On lingerie and movies:
I associate lingerie with the movies. Sophia Loren is my ultimate icon: when she wears a piece of lingerie in her films with Macello Mastroianni, it is as though she is wearing the most amazing gown. But beautiful lingerie is not just for the red carpet now it is also for every day of the week. I can wear it under a T-shirt with ripped jeans and still feel special.
