Intimissimi introduces the history of the bra Irina Shayk & Shlomit Malka through the lens of Sante D’Orazio

A simple history, a journey following sinuous feminine curves, delicate like lace threads, crossing and twisting in time.

Intimissimi reveals women, goals and changing fashions in an exclusive storybook which examines the legendary bra, with contributions from international stars.

Twenty years have passed since the launch of the Italian lingerie brand in 1996.

 In that time, Intimissimi has grown and established an international presence, without ever losing sight of its DNA.

To mark this important anniversary the brand has photographed its original muse from 2007, Irina Shayk, and its current brand ambassador, Shlomit Malka, discovered by the label in 2014.

These feminine, sensual style icons relate the history of the bra in beautiful film-like stills, masterfully directed by Sante D’Orazio.

The outstanding, legendary photographer, whose shots have made him a global trendsetter, has masterminded the project.

Four icons – Irina, Shlomit, Sante D’Orazio and the Bra, a must-have symbol of femininity – are brought together on the Intimissimi set, fusing Beauty and Art.

The book, a collector’s item celebrating the Italian brand, features twenty black and white shots together with technical notes.

These twenty images, one for each year of beautiful lingerie, depict Intimissimi’s history and achievements.

The photographs present a sensual journey, where the choice of a bra enables you to best express your femininity.
