“Fleur du Mal is proud to collaborate with Precious Lee, a woman who embodies the brand’s spirit by embracing her sexuality and femininity” says Zuccarini “This collection was a natural next step for Fleur du Mal and we look forward to creating more pieces together. The inaugural four-piece collection features Fleur du Mal’s signature Lily Lace Embroidery bra and panty set, and Italian Silk Trench that can also be worn as a wrap dress. “This collaboration is so important to me for so many reasons, one of the main is having the opportunity to integrate my love as a model, my love as a creative, and my love for uplifting women of all sizes. This is the first time Fleur du Mal has extended their sizes, and I could not be more proud that I am the first to collaborate in this capacity.
Precious modeled the campaign imagery in the streets of Paris with Claire Rothstein, famed photographer and founder of Girls, Girls, Girls. The collection will be available for purchase on October 23, 2019 at fleurdumal.com and the brand’s NYC Boutique.
