Gilda & Pearl
Gilda & Pearl represents our inspirations. Gilda is one of classic cinema’s most intriguing Femme Fatales, while the lustrous pearl is as beautiful as it is unique by virtue of its creation process.
Gilda & Pearl was founded by Diane Houston in 2011. Inspired by the beauty of craftsmanship and the bold Femme Fatales of Hollywood film, Gilda & Pearl’s unique aesthetic and ‘lingerie to love’ began with just a few handmade pieces, and grew quickly to become a press and celebrity favourite.Today, Gilda & Pearl is available in the world’s best department stores, is regularly featured in magazines such as Vogue and worn by A-list celebrities
Today, every Gilda & Pearl piece is still handmade in the UK with over 85% natural materials, as it was in the beginning. Our UK manufacture allows us to know exactly who makes each Gilda & Pearl piece, and exactly how and where every garment is created.In the grand old tradition, every Gilda & Pearl piece is hand-cut in individual or small batches, and in many cases, our pieces are sewn in their entirety by one individual maker.We value design and the beauty of craftsmanship, and work always with the goals of putting people and planet first.
