Our Story

 

Dear Reader...


We believe every woman should feel beautiful underneath their clothes. Our goal is to make lingerie that feels incredible, while making your favourite white shirt or new low back dress look even more gorgeous. Every element of our product creation from the fabrics; colour curation and design finesse; to the meticulous 6-stage fitting process, are critical in achieving the perfect fit.


We strive to go against the grain and alter the evolution of modern lingerie by combining innovative design with a revival of the artisanal principles that defined the beautiful, empowering lingerie of the past. 


We don’t work seasonally and we never will, our aim is to slow down the chain of product creation and produce purpose-driven products of the highest quality. Craftsmanship is at the core of our brand and every product we create. 


Through forming strong partnerships with generation-run family businesses, artisans within their fields, we have brought the highest level of expertise into the crafting of our pieces so that we can offer the most unique, visionary lingerie that looks as sumptuous as it feels.

 

Love, Coutille x

 

The Founder 

 

 “Beautiful lingerie takes time. We need to respect this and appreciate its value. Working in a sustainable manner comes naturally when we work to the strengths of our suppliers and resist the unnecessary pressures of fast fashion - that culture is worlds away from what we are creating here.” Hannah, Designer & Founder

 

 

Coutille is founded by Hannah Farrugia Sharples, an established lingerie designer with specialist knowledge in creating product for the luxury market. 

 

Over the last 6 years she has designed luxury and couture collections for global luxury lingerie brand La Perla and UK brand Coco de Mer, with pieces worn by high profile clients including Rita Ora, Halle Berry and Mary J Blige at the Met Gala in New York.  

 

As a female designer, she has always crafted designs of beauty and sensuality to inspire confidence and empowerment in the wearer. It is these qualities that she hopes to become synonymous with Coutille.
