ALBERTINE is the story of two fabric-obsessed sisters who decided to create their own original and subversive brand of swimming suits! This naturally followed their family history – growing up around laces, flounces and other froufrou lingerie fabrics created by their grandfather, a certain Albert, founder of a clothes factory industry in corsetry-hosiery.
It all started in 2008. Caroline grew bored of marketing and Anémone tired of the media industry; their creativity needed to be expressed. The two sisters threw themselves into the design of their first collection. Now in le Bon Marché since 6 years and in more than 70 point of sales in France and abroad, their original an yet elegant swimsuits seduce many women seeking for premium and stylish brand.
ALBERTINE is the mark of a bathing suit “creator” for all of those who refuse to have the same suit as their fellow beachgoer! Our collections will attract women as demanding as us – those who embody an image of smart and cool at the same time, who want suits that are practical and easy to carry off but with style, of course!
And since 2015, we added a lingerie line. Fine european fabrics, the mix and match of patterns, stripes, flowers, laces, all the Albertine ’s touch in a nice, elegant and easy to wear lingerie line.
