Fifi Chachnil goes to the movies

French lingerie label Fifi Chachnil has recreated the iconic corset from the 1961 film Lola, directed by Jacques Demy.

The corset was made in partnership with the “Le Monde Enchante de Jacques Demy” exhibition at the La Cinematheque in Paris. The French new wave film tells the story of Lola, a cabaret performer played by Anouk Aimee, who captures the heart of a lost young man.

Demy’s daughter Rosalie Varda approached Fifi Chachnil with the idea of making the corset, which was assembled in Paris using tulle, silk and lace.

The corset will be on display in La Cinematheque until August 4th, 2013.
