Playsuit, 'Babyloo', by Fifi Chachnil, flocked polka dot tulle, France, 2015

Labels and date

Sugar and spice

Fifi Chachnil's lingerie often draws on vintage silhouettes. Her designs are feminine, flirtatious and spiced with a girlish playfulness and sentimentality. Her classic 'Babyloo' playsuit combines a blouse with bloomers styled like those worn by girls for gym in the 1920s.

Chachnil associates closely with Paris and Parisian women but she is inspired by 'toutes les filles' [every girl].
