If you spent years laboring, creating and crafting your lingerie brand and someone asked you to pick just one style to represent your work…how would you respond?

“Just one!?!” is what Nicolas Busnel, founder of Maison Close, exclaimed when I asked him this question during a visit to his brand’s flagship store in New York City earlier this summer.

“No. Just one?”

I nodded and watched him exhale, run his fingers through his hair and turn towards the bras and bodysuits hanging on the boutique’s exposed brick wall.

“One, one, one…” he said shifting in his seat and finally countering with, “Three?”

I agreed and Nicolas motioned towards the hanging racks on his left. “If I could choose three, then I choose these three:

“These three pieces are very representative of Maison Close,” said Nicolas. “And they are very representative of the three spirits that make up Maison Close. Classic, Elegant, and Strong for the modern woman.”

The pieces also showcase Nicolas’s attention to detail, dedication to textures, love of fabrics, and desire to create visually stunning styles.

We’ve included a selection of images of these three styles for our readers to enjoy and encourage anyone that wants to experience the Maison Close in person to visit one of their stockists or the brand’s boutique at: 32 Grand Street, New York, NY 10013. It’s a beautiful shopping destination and there are great events hosted by the Maison Close team.
