Collection: Wilde by Bordelle

Wilde is a celebration of the Victorian Aesthetic Movement, emphasising the lavish and extravagant tastes of the era. Each piece has been designed with the concept of ‘Art for Art’s Sake’ in mind, championing self-expression and an explosion of beauty over moral expectations.

The bespoke embroidery of Wilde is inspired by key inventions of the time – X-rays and photography. An homage to Anna Atkins, supposedly the world’s first female photographer, whose obsession with flora and fauna stemmed from the common Victorian desire to collect and study the natural world.
