Ophelia realises 100% handmade lingerie that values form, function and craftsmanship. Inspired by contemporary art, vintage, and modern women, she designes unique pieces that are both strong as fragile, and both wearable as mysterious.
Three years ago she started a project called (f)luisteren (a combination of whispering and listening) in which she wrote letters with different men about their significant other. Based on their stories she designed unique lingerie pieces. She believes that by passing the rationalizations, insecurities and assumptions of women, uncensored and authentic pieces could arise.
Today she still aims for lingerie pieces that can make women dare to get over their insecurities and explore different sides of their personalities. Inspired by several artists, she creates mysterious and fragile collections that can be an escape from everyday life.
