Our mission at Coutille is to slow down the chain of product creation and produce purpose-driven products of the highest quality. To achieve this, 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 pieces that look as sumptuous as they feel.
Love, Coutille x
Coutille’s story began in 2020 when founder, then lingerie designer Hannah Farrugia Sharples, set out to create lingerie of exceptional craftsmanship and effortless wearability.
Our Philosophy at Coutille is to inspire confidence and femininity in all our wearers. We manufacture exclusively in Portugal and Great Britain, using the highest quality materials with a focus on timeless silhouettes that flatter all shapes and sizes.
In August 2022 we launched our 24:7 Slip Dress to an unbelievable response. With a mission to combine unique design with everyday versatility, we discovered that the Slip Dress embodies the sensuality and femininity of lingerie for the contemporary woman.
“Creating a truly beautiful garment 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.”
Coutille is founded by Hannah Farrugia Sharples, an established lingerie designer with specialist knowledge in creating product for the luxury market.
Over almost a decade in industry, she has trained with couturier Iris van Herpen, designed luxury and couture collections for Italian lingerie brand La Perla and led the design direction for London-based lingerie brand, Coco de Mer. Her pieces have been worn by high profile clients from Rita Ora and Halle Berry to Hailey Bieber and Mary J. Blige.
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.
