INTIMISSIMI ON ICE MONICA BANDEAU BRA
What’s the ideal way to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Italy’s most desirable lingerie label? Answer: With a double show-stopping event, of course. That’s why the spectacular limited edition Monica bra was given its grand unveiling alongside this year’s sensational winter extravaganza, Intimissimi on Ice.
Intimissimi first sponsored the renowned Opera on Ice show in 2014, when it pioneered a format that combined opera with pop to become Intimissimi on Ice. So, the first celebration idea was to devote as much time and imagination to the creation of a piece of lingerie as the choreographer and designers give to this extraordinary show. That’s a very high bar to reach when it’s famous throughout Italy for its dynamic glamour, breathtaking costumes, stunning sets, and glittering dance and music celebrities. That’s why this anniversary bra had to be a truly individual work of art, combining all the qualities that make a virtuoso performance at the Arena Di Verona.
The second, and most essential, creative idea on the table was inspired by the show’s firmament of ice stars. Intimissimi on Ice is a celebration of graceful, free movement enhanced by the elegant cut of the costumes; the bra would be strapless, in seductive midnight black, embellished with 325 dazzling Swarovski crystals hand-applied in a blaze across the back fastening.
It was the athletes themselves who were the final inspiration—the microfiber bra had to move with ease and give great support. Intimissimi pieces are known for their natural and contemporary yet feminine and alluring look, achieved through the imaginative use of high-performance fabrics. This is underwear that gives you the shape and comfort you want without sacrificing any of the glamour.
Monica is a lingerie item that’s designed to be shown off, so wear it with your sheerest blouse, or team with Intimissimi’s limited edition double-layer silk georgette top to rock this season’s underwear-as-outerwear trend. This complementary piece is decorated with 147 Swarovski crystals along its Mandarin collar and finished with a romantic bow—the perfect partner to wear on an evening out with Monica!
