Wundervoll is a fairly new label, just launched in January of this year. Wundervoll (which translates as “wonderful”) really caught my eye when I was first introduced to the brand. There is such a distinct “Wundervoll look” that keeps everything in the collections quite cohesive, as well as distinguishes the brand from every other lingerie brand out there. This look is simple, elegant, and tailored above all. Matthias Jaschke, creator of the German line, described his brand in a press release announcing the Wundervoll launch earlier this year:
“While high-end lingerie its [sic] not necessarily suitable as everyday wear and too elaborate for many women, exclusive underwear is not always able to impress with fashionable, original designs. Wundervoll is both high quality and comfortable, while still remaining very feminine and sexy.”
Looking at the pictures from the current Fall/Winter 2008/09 collection, it is easy to see how Wundervoll is wearable and insanely alluring at the same time. Made of fine, natural, silk jersey, the collection of 20 pieces is clearly fashion-oriented with high-waisted “Boogie Briefs” and the “Rock ‘n’ Roll” balconette bra. The absence of color keeps the focus squarely on the construction and design of each garment. Soft bras are available in A and B cups, balconette bras are available in US sizes 32A-36C, and everything else is available in S-L sizes.
The upcoming Spring/Summer 2009 collection stays true to the aesthetic set by the inaugural collection. Jaschke says of the collection,
“The Spring/Summer collection 2009 surprises with new fabrics, wonderful colors and a variety of new creations. With this collection, we have completely lived up to our claim of combining the highest quality and perfect fit with feminine shapes.”
This new collection includes 21 pieces in certified-organic cotton as well as the silk jersey from the previous season. This cotton is woven with 10% Lyrca for a good fit. The bras, knickers, camisoles, and loungewear feature details such as braiding, contrast trim, metal rings, and double button rows similar to the Fall/Winter collection. This collection (which will be available from January 2009) brings subdued color into the mix with shades such as papyrus, macadamia, cacao, ecru, black, and rose. Bras come in sizes 32A-36C and everything else comes in US sizes 6-12/GB sizes 8-14.
