The Biondi London collection, launched in 2013 by former Harvey Nichols buyer, Claudine Davies, has always been synonymous with superlative craftmenship and exemplary fit. Producing high quality pieces encouraging conscious consumption and creating classic and beautiful fashion that will be loved and treasured for years to come!
This summer we celebrate the introduction of Eco fabrics to the swimwear collection, with fabrics made using 82% ECONYL yarns, made from recycled fishing nets and industrial plastic waste. After these nylon plastics have reached the end of their useful life they are recovered, regenerated and transformed by Aquafil into ECONYL, with guaranteed same performance as the original virgin nylon yarns. The new regenerated swim styles sit alongside Biondi's Ready-to-wear collection which is made using natural fibres such as linen, organic cotton and silk.
For Biondi, sustainability means ethical manufacture, everything made by people who are treated fairly, with respect and who are paid well for what they do. Whether manufacturing takes place in the UK, Italy or India, production runs are kept small to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible. Products are made from sustainably-grown or recycled materials, using low impact processes.
Bold Intimates are proud to be a part of Biondi's product development journey to establish responsible and regenerative sourcing routes and ensuring impeccable technical attention to detail to create the most elevated of product fit and feel, meaning these garments continue to feel good and do good!
" Bold Intimates' technical expertise is second to none, they can quickly translate our innovative ideas into viable designs. Nicola is quick to understand brand positioning and concepts and communicates with our team efficiently and effectively. Nicola is excellent in fitting sessions and always knows how to fix a pattern that is causing us fit problems. I love that she has a strong creative side too and we can get valuable input on the aesthetics of the design at the same time. Furthermore, they are passionate about responsible and regenerative sourcing and have been crucial in assisting us with our eco strategy. I highly recommend Bold Intimates who go above and beyond to help the brands they work with "
Claudine Davies, director at BIONDI.
