It’s hard to resist the sensual creations of Carine Gilson, who treats lingerie like an art form in itself, using the finest materials and an often retro look that is anything but bland or staid. The ideal gift to spice up those cold winter nights!


A passion for lace


Carine was born in Belgium and studied at the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. She quickly joined the fashion department of the Academy in Antwerp, where she taught famous graduates Dries Van Noten and Martin Margiela. That was where she began to study the rich, seductive and utterly timeless story of lace. It wasn’t long before she was totally hooked and launched her own brand in 1994.


Chantilly lace and Lyon silk


The many facets of Carine’s talent are on display at her delightful shop on Rue Antoine Dansaert. She loves precious satin and flowing fabric that gently caresses the skin. As for me, I love the subtle blend of fabric used in her bras, panties, robes and short suits. Her work is always sophisticated and she doesn’t shy away from strong colours, which often unravel the success of other designers. The handmade products and the time devoted to each article are impressive. Pure luxury.

Open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 6:30 pm

Philippe, 38 AESTHETE

My fashion job takes me around the world throughout the year. I love flea markets and hunting for antiques year round, meeting up with friends at art show openings, going to fashion shows and being first to discover a new restaurant.
My little extra: introducing people to the "arty" and underground side of Brussels!"
