Commenting on the launch, Violet & Wren creative director Louise Barnard said: “We cannot wait to see the pieces in Le Bon Marché’s wonderful, newly renovated lingerie and loungewear destination area.”

Le Bon Marché opened its revamped lingerie department in September.

Describing the new space, the retailer said: “Regarded as a natural extension of fashion, lingerie is enhanced by a permanent spacious area dedicated to bathing in the sea and is part of decor that has been inspired by modern houses: natural light, ample space, high-quality materials, collectable furniture, etc.”
