So…at last the Punch & Rudy show is in town, after many twists and turns and months and months of hard slog we can finally lift the curtain and reveal our first six styles for A/W13. Just like the quirky shows of a bygone era when Samuel Pepys the naval official and diarist who wrote of the marionette performance he saw over 350 years ago in Londons Covent Garden ‘an Italian puppet play is with the rayles there, which is very pretty, the best I ever saw…’ We hope we can offer the Punch & Rudy gal a grand show of style of her own, as every piece has its own sense of character. We feel we haven’t pushed boundaries we have simply nudged at them, bringing the best of lingerie design, normally hidden back-stage out and onto the centre stage where its beauty belongs; decadence, flirtation, luxury and originality…..A very British show, which has grown and is continuing to blossom as we go forward…. now entering the production phase, our dresses will soon be winging their way onto hangers in boutiques throughout the UK and Europe. With only 50 dresses available per size, stock is strictly limited. To avoid disappointment we are welcoming no-obligation pre-orders, please email us through the website.
Pompadour…inspired by the regal Madame Pompadour herself, French, stylish, lavish. A full statement piece made from silk organza Toile-de-Jouy, edged in sumptuous satin galloon braiding, and gorgeous feminine black daisy guipures make a true statement piece for the champagne gal!
Victorian…with hints of steam punk, fashion forward and evoking the darker and more risqué side for the inner diva in you. Made from delicious silk MacAndrew tartan, and constructed satin quilted bra cups you will definitely stand out in any crowd!
Romantic…created from an antique style corded scalloped lace, this dress offers uber sophisticated sexiness, velvet ribbon detailing adds a quirky twist and originality all the way…so move over ordinary lace frocks and make way for the va-va-voom of lace dresses.
Pulsinella…this style packs power and pretty in one fatal punch!!! Seduction inspired by the girdles of the 40′s and 50′s a real fresh beauty of ingenuity. Pulsinella, you will go to the ball!
