BERNADETTE

Mother and daughter Bernadette and Charlotte de Geyter are the creative force behind the Antwerp based BERNADETTE. Mother Bernadette is a former buyer for Ralph Lauren, passionate about all-things vintage, with an eye for shapes that will suit women of all ages, and daughter Charlotte trained at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Together they have a passion for their own vision of modern luxury that they bring to ready-to-wear fashion and collections for the interior. This versatile and artistic duo began by drawing on a rich range of unique floral motifs, all hand-painted by Charlotte, to create effortlessly elegant and original dresses, handbags and home wear. Now the brand is also moving into new fabrics, side by side with their signature floral silks, like cotton poplin and taffeta, to evolve their shapes. Designs by the younger Charlotte tend to feature sleek silhouettes and slinkier fabrics while Bernadette focuses more on pieces for women who prefer a kimono dress to a little slip. Attention to detail is part of this brand’s DNA as it cultivates a lifestyle filled with the joy associated with striking florals and elegant plains that together brighten up the every day.
