Studio Pia - Ethically Decadent

This is definitely a review that has been long overdue but better late than never so here it is. I’ve been lucky enough to add one of my ultimate wish list pieces the ethically decadent “Soraya” by Studio Pia to my collection. I first set my eyes on Soraya in the ivory colourway back when I added it to my Christmas picks. Luckily for me, the black was released and available at my local, Babylikestopony.

I tried it on and instantly fell in love.

The Brand

I first met Pia in Paris at the Salon de la Lingerie last year. It’s always lovely to meet the people behind the brand as you get a real feel for who you are about to support. I’m glad to say I am so happy to support this beautiful brand. They were lovely, down to earth and handed out ginger cookies with lingerie-clad icing (the important stuff!). It was my first time viewing their beautiful pieces in the flesh and I was in awe.

Personally, I don’t think there is a better luxury brand out there at the moment that is creating beautiful lingerie and are ethical as well as taking sustainability seriously. Studio Pia proves that style shouldn’t have to be sacrificed by choosing to be ethical and I agree with them 100%.

Not only do they choose their suppliers well, but they are also the only lingerie company offering cruelty-free organic peace silk. For each product sold on their website, they will plant one tree in Indonesia in an effort to help deforestation.

Now if that alone doesn’t get you ready to throw money at them keep reading.

The Details

The beautiful Soraya was inspired by the decadence of the Art Noveau period especially Gustave Klimt’s Gold phase. The embroidery is one of the most beautiful things I have ever put on my body. One wouldn’t expect any less as it is completely bespoke and designed in house by Pia herself then produced in France.

All of the hardware used is 24K gold plated which has been sourced within the EU.
