Introducing Rosario Punales - Spanish Vintage Inspired Lingerie Designer

We're delighted in announcing the addition of Spanish lingerie designer, Rosario Punales, to Bella Bella Boutique website!

Rosario Puñales belongs to a family who has been in the business of fashion, textile printing and embroidery for more than sixty years. She has always felt the call for the textile industry and has devoted herself to it. For this reason, she decided to create her own trademark for lingerie, which is very personal, and full of subtlety and sensuality.

From 1998 to 2002 she studied fashion and pattern making at the Institut Català de la Moda in Barcelona. Later, she specialized in drawing and painting for textile design at the Central Saint Martins College of Art& Design, and in textile printing at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. In Japan, she learnt the traditional techniques of textile printing, which she applied in her first collection, “Prints for Miwako”.

Rosario Puñales designs vintage-inspired lingerie. She creates her culottes, bodices, tops, slips and gowns with lace created in the 20s and 30s, giving her garments an innocent and, at the same time, provocative flavor.

Owing to the age of the fabrics, her clothes come in limited stocks, so many of her garments are unique pieces.

The colors of the lace are contrasted and harmonized. Modern patterns are combined with suggestive and elaborated fabrics such as Chantilly, embroidery or guipure, and are enriched with delicate frills that give the pieces a special touch.

We are sure Rosario Punales is going to be one of your favorite lingerie brands because it has already become ours! We're in love!..

We hope that these sumptuous garments will inspire fervent expressions of confidence and poise—a reminder that the simple act of dressing oneself is at once creative and revolutionary.
