“Our lingerie is aimed at women with sophisticated taste, looking for something different from what the high street currently offers.” – Francesca Dallamotta, Voilà le Vélo.
Voilà le Vélo is an independent lingerie atelier based in Hackney, London, that threaded its first needle in 2012. It’s an incredibly beautiful brand that we wanted to share with our readers before the weekend.

Every single piece is designed by the Creative Director and founder Francesca Dallamotta, and handmade in-house or using a trusted workshop based in the UK when dealing with high volumes. Voilà le Vélo was founded on a strong belief in craftsmanship and attention to detail.
“We pride ourselves on creating high-quality handmade garments using only the very best ethically and locally sourced fabrics and trimmings.” notes Francesca.

The new AW 15/16 collection is described as a display of the UK’s best craftsmanship. From the most delicate French silk chiffon to the exquisite Tana Lawn cottons from Liberty of London, these beautiful creations are handmade following extensive research of the best fabrics and trimmings available in the market.

“Flirty Lingerie Hand-Made in London.”
“Our lingerie is aimed at women with sophisticated taste, looking for something different from what the high street currently offers. People who are environmentally conscious and that appreciate the small luxury of a handmade, unique product.” noted Francesca. “Our garments combine retro designs and techniques with modern cuts and styles. They range from the adorably cute, to the flirty with a wink of naughty, to the sophisticated and elegant”.
