About Us

Fleur du Mal was founded in late 2012 with an ambition to change the way women approach lingerie. Feminine, chic and slightly subversive, the brand explores the notion of desire and artful provocation, while maintaining style and wearability.  Launching with an e-commerce flagship, the collection debuted on fleurdumal.com and with premier retailers such as Barneys, Net-a-Porter, Saks, Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. 

Fleur du Mal has since expanded to include a ready-to-wear and swim collection, with plans for a physical retail presence in late 2017.
