Handmade Turkish Lingerie by Si Belle


On my last trip to New York, I was thrilled to discover Si Belle, a new line by Sibel Mesta, a Turkish designer who makes beautiful, romantic lingerie that immediately reminded me of the handmade lace and silk pieces by Elise Aucouturier. Like Elise, who uses French Calais Lace made in the traditional fashion, Sibel employs women in Istanbul for many of the components of her designs, such as the crocheted lace "Oya" which young maidens use to convey their hope or hopelessness in love. The Devonshire collection is made from silk chiffon in a delicate floral print in shades of mauve and grey, not unlike last season's Moulin Rose and Crepuscule sets. The kimono wrap (pictured above), bralette and brief are all available now at Lille in very limited quantities. More beautiful photos after the jump....
