Corsetry


“There’s a whole other world of corsets out there, the real McCoy, designed not as a flourish but to re-draw your lines. The London-based Deborah Brand makes stupendous bespoke pieces, priced from £695, that will shrink your waist by up to five inches. With more than 100 components including 45 steels and polymer bones, a silk duchesse satin lining and five metres-yes, five metres-of lacing, these are objects of beauty and seemingly of another age.” Anna Murphy, Fashion Director, The Times
